rainbow reverie

Welcome to the world a new baby! When i make blanket for babies, i like to use rainbow colours. Baby crochet blankets are smaller and take less time than my giant crochet thinking projects. Baby blankets are finished quicker, and usually way way before the babies are due, just in case…. Spy my BLANKET page HERE to admire them on the bottom of the page in their own dedicated picture gallery, and if you have been gifted one of my baby blankets, see if you can spot yours amongst the others.* *(If you cannot see your own gift on … Continue reading

yesterday’s yearnings – yearly yonder The weather in the UK has not been following last year’s anomalous hotness… Am i surprised? Not really.

My memory crochet blanket (LOOK) is displayed so that the tactile quality comes across really well and apparently visitors … Continue reading

lunar loops crochet

Hello All….. So this is something exciting…. I have had a conversation with a fellow art enthusiast a little while ago, about organizing some crochet workshops in connection to the cycle phases and representation of these in some crochet pieces…  We are both quite excited about getting this going, but, i thought i would get the feel from you, as no workshop is possible without lovely juicy participants…. I have been looking into the cycle phases and the changes that these bring within us for about two or maybe even three years now, as i struggle with the Creative … Continue reading
