Wow. Can't believe how many page views I have had over the past few months (8,000!). Thanks very much peeps! I'd better pull my finger out and getting blogging then....
Right. I have a crochet thing going on at the moment. Maybe it's the time of year (nothing better than curling up on the sofa snuggled up with a ball of yarn) or maybe it's the fact that it is a quick fix and produces such amazingly pretty results or maybe it's the fact that crochet is currently very on trend. I've also noticed crochet has gone a bit mainstream. Granny chic is big news in home decor and Country Living Magazine et al feature granny square blankets and rugs this month.
I've found a simple little crochet flower pattern and have added these to a fabric heart, a crocheted heart and a crocheted tea cosy. Take a look at these lovelies below.
I'm still getting my fabric fix too. I've had many requests for a little soft toy for boys - something along the lines of my 'mouse and bed' so have tweaked the pattern to come up with a cute elephant in shorts and shirt. At some stage I will design a sleeping bag for him to nap in.
Also at the Product & Development stage, we have funky glasses cases, peg bags, dog beds and play tents for pre-schoolers. I'd like to do a screen printing course this year and finally get to grips with some dressmaking. Bring it on.
