I am always happy to see what other people make of my patterns and recently Tanya, who I think lives in Canada, sent me a picture of a Celtic Coaster she had made. I thought it was well made and enjoyed her strong primary colours. And then, and this is the clever bit, she sent… Read More Isn’t this clever!
I have got a bit out of pattern with my posts but I had a few things to share that you might like so here it is. On Monday I was still trying to be careful and recover from being unwell but it was such a lovely day that I thought a walk round The… Read More This and That
I seem to be having a bit of difficulty getting up much enthusiasm for blogs and crafting lately but, needing something to take to Crafty Coffee on Friday, I decided to try out an idea I had for another bookmark. This was to use my triquetra coaster pattern in #10 cotton. I like the red… Read More A New Bookmark

I started by devising some plaitwork bookmarks and published the best pattern. I also then made some Celtic cross… Read More Looking back on 2017
I have at last managed to finish these. Other things that might have been finished by now have been left but these were easy to do. Within a few hours of taking the first photograph they had morphed into this which is half a cushion cover. Wanting to make a Celtic Plaitwork type cushion cover… Read More So what might this be?
I’ve just published the pattern for this on Ravelry. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/celtic-hot-pad Been working hard these last few days working out the best hook to use and creating the pdfs. I showed you smaller version I made in the same cotton as my Celtic coasters. But this is only a little over 5″ across. This would do as… Read More A Hot Pad / Teapot Stand pattern
Those of you who have been following me for a while will know that I wasn’t entirely happy with my Celtic bookmark because it was quite large and a bit thick.
