Summer Flop

well we’ve waited and waited and summer just isn’t making an appearance up here in the north unfortunately so I’m planning ahead, haven’t been crocheting long and have mastered the art of hexagons but hate sewing up even in crochet so needed a change! I really love the colour combo that Attic 24 creates so I took the plunge and bought me a blanket kit๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

After a few and I mean a good few false starts, I keep having to remind myself I’m self taught and need to be patient, I think I’ve cracked it!

  
The colours from Stylecraft are fabulous and although it’s only two different stitch rows the constant changing of colour keeps me going. I’m even planning on what to make next with these colours ๐Ÿ˜€

Christmas Is Coming

I would love to say the sun was shining and it’s terrible to have Christmas in July but the only shine up with me is of my Docrafts glitter card ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Busy Docrafts Month

hello it’s been a while, ย I’ve had a busy month with Docrafts demoing not that I’m complaining cause I love my job ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ll be sharing some of my makes from the new ranges over the month but I had to share my bestest news first…… ย I’ve been published in the August edition of the Docrafts magazine ๐Ÿ˜ it’s a great honour to be featured along side to many talented peeps and I hope it won’t be the last as it was great fun. I love my demo job with Docrafts as I get to play with wonderful ranges and meet some fabulous peeps so this is a huge added bonus and I never imagined it would lead to this so I’m chuffed to bits! ย  As a berty bonus and a lovely surprise the cake I made for my daughters 13th birthday as also featured, thank you Docrafts x
