Hi to those wondering where l am...

HELLO...remember me?

Sorry for neglecting you all for the last couple of weeks, especially after l started a new blog with the promise of lots of lovely new ideas
But I am back in blogland and with lots of tit bits to share again 

The reason l went quite for a while is that l was approached by a publisher to write a crochet book...I was just so excited but terrified at the same time

We all had a meeting yesterday just outside Brighton, I met the team I will be working with and it all went really well. We drove down yesterday had the meeting and stayed in one of their flats over night drove back today after having a peek at Brighton

The flat was wonderful and the team were really lovely and made me feel very welcome and at ease,
so it looks like I have a new crochet book to write....
Now l know the brief I can share some of what I have been working on through January
Hope you will all be as pleased as l am, it is a dream come true for me, something l have always said l would do one day...seems like that day has arrived
Wish me luck, I'll need it....a huge challenge for me

For now how about a few stripes..2 rows of sc in a variety of colours
rainbow of wavy stripes 
lots of blue stripes

greens and reds
 and some tweedy ones too..
Don't you just love stripes?

plus a few triangles

and the mesh stitch scarf it coming along great too and a hat appeared 
to go with the collar both patterns on their way soon

Magic is believing in yourself. If you can do that, you can make anything happen.

  5. Welcome back and congratulations! That's so great. I love your patterns, especially the stripes, they're very effective xxx

  6. Such exciting news. Lots of luck but you also have lots of skill and talent to go with it. Love the stripes.

  7. Do you have any ideas on a name for your book yet? Sooooo excited for you....a dream come true indeed. Continued success, Suz.x

  8. Yahoo!!!!! How exciting for you. You have a wonderful talent so you will easily rise to the challnge. Shout if we can help in any way. x Jo

  9. Of course we remember you!!! How exciting about the new book - you are so talented, I am sure it will be a great book.

  10. Brilliant - I am not surprised that they approached you - your crochet is the most exciting and yet still somehow approachable that I have seen! Congratulations on a well deserved accolade!

  11. Suz, you know you're unforgettable. :-) *C*O*N*G*R*A*T*U*L*A*T*I*O*N*S*!* on your book! I can't wait to see what you come up with and I'm sure I'll be one of your first customers.
    ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  12. Thanks everyone...think l have pm'd everyone and thanked you all if you don't have e-mail link then l thank you all here
    Hugs x

  13. Suz woñderful news!!!! Now I can't wait to get your book it's going to be great!!!

    Hugs Chris

  14. Congratulations!! I found your blog by following a link on Ravelry, that said you had posted a Digard type scarf. But the link is gone now. Do you sell a pattern? Thanks,

  15. Congratulation! This is great and happy news!

  16. Well done! Much deserved as you are an original and talented designer. When people are looking for book writers that is what they need. It is all very well using certain colour schemes but if design talent is not there then no book offer will be made. It is obvious that you have bucket loads of ideas and know-how. I hope your book runs of the shelves!

  17. well done you - you must feel veeerrrry chuffed with yourself! Very best wishes with it.
