Still no time to blog properly, just a quick hello and thanks for all the support.
Second posting of Book 2 Design went off yesterday so half way with the projects and i'm on target so far.
The Stylecraft designs i did last year are selling well Iam told....all in
My two favourites are these two patterns below, the teacosy and the pots and mats
I am also in the HOMESPUN MAGAZINE
a blanket I made for them earlier this year
The Homespun rug below
I've been using Rooster yarns for a couple of book projects...Almerino super soft and great to crochet with, along with Stylecraft Alpaca, Senses a mohair yarn, and more of the Classique Cotton too...all lovely yarns to crochet with.
Rooster yarns were only in Cheshire, not too far away so I popped in on route to Blackpool Breeze last weekend, and now I have already run out of the 4 balls of Cornish....so a whole pack is winging its way to my door.
Have fun, hugs to all xx
Hi. The stylecraft patterns look great. I will check out my local yarn shops to see if they stock them. I could have done with it last week. But I made my own pattern up anyway. Do you live inReplyDelete
Shropshire? I do. I will keep a look out for your other publications. X
Hi Kelly, if your local shop doesn't stock them ask them to get them in, a very reasonable priced selection of patterns.Delete
Yes Shrewsbury, where are you?....we have a knit and Natter every Wednesday morning at the museum you would be very welcome if you are close enough, 10 till 12 every Wednesday
Oh wow. I live in Shrewsbury too. I have a little pottery painting studio in The Parade. Unfortunately I work Wednesday (and every day!!) But I would have loved to come. I have been trying to set up something very similar on a friday morning at my studio.Delete
I might be naughty and close one wednesday morning to pop in and see you. You are welcome to come in and see me too. So excited now. Love all your work x
Hi Kelly, we will pop in and see you aft the meeting one week i will ask the girls and our KnN leader Erica, if they want to come with me, they are a very arty group and into all sorts of arts and craftsDelete
it would be great to see you one wednesday even if it was just for an hour you close up...an early lunch break may be hehehe
Hi Sue - I'm behind with blogging too at the moment but just wanted to pop in and say congrats on all your lovely work - I was so chuffed to find you in Australian Homespun magazine when I picked it up yesterday (I think it must be the same as the British publication?). I love your blanket, you're such a talented lady. Wishing you the very best as always! xoJoyReplyDelete
