I created this pattern to offer my grandaughter as something that was interesting, not very large and only needed knowing how to make chains and double crochets (US- single crochets). In the event she preferred the idea of using her multi-coloured yarn to make a scarf but I have now created a tutorial showing how… Read More A New pattern – A Free One this time!
Recently I didn’t have anything at a suitable point to take to the ‘Crafty Coffee’ morning so I decided I would take a copy of my Christmas bauble pattern and some #10 crochet cotton and start making some more crochet baubles for that special time of year. However as I followed the pattern – shock… Read More Confession time! and a ‘Thank You’

Now I am not really an Easter card sending person but where people have sent me cards in the past, I have felt… Read More Easter cards
Since Maryanne suggested that it would be a good idea to have some Easter related entries for the ‘Made It’ monthly challenge, I decided to try my hand at crochet eggs. I have realised that it is being impatient and lazy that leads me to write my own patterns. I start out due to this… Read More A Dozen Eggs!
Before I continue with my subject I just wanted to share something that made me happy and surprised. A lady called JudyR who can be found on Ravelry told me about another lady ‘fanalaine’ who had made a blanket using my ‘granny ripple’ crochet pattern.
