Spring Crochet




After hand stitching my second needle craft passion is crochet so I am delighted to have been asked to teach a beginners crochet workshop with the lovely Linda Robinson of Creative Thread Workshops
Join us on Saturday 18th May for a fun filled day during which you will dive head first into the bewildering sea of crochet techniques armed only with a hook and a ball of yarn
You will emerge the proud owner of a set of small samples created from basic stitches and will hopefully have solved the mysteries of the Granny Square and Magic Ring

Crochet and Crocus






During a glorious but still cold weekend here on the Fylde coast I watched Mr Bull demolish and start to rebuild my damp and rotten garden shed
He assures me that very soon I will be able to resume gardening operations but in the meantime I consoled myself with these gorgeous crocus that rushed out to greet the sun and started a new granny square blanket in fresh spring colours
I am using a lovely cuddly soft cotton yarn bought at a lovely woolly shop I discovered last week in Clitheroe
