Craft update, or She’s Been Crocheting again…


The only problem with crochet is that my daughter wants to keep everything I make!

Beach Blue Bag_webThis one is for my mum. She loves these blues.

Flower Market Bag_webI made this bag a while ago but  friend suggested I add these flowers (I made these to see if I could crochet flowers!).  The bag is the perfect size for a girl and with the flowers on it, my daughter has laid claim to this one.

Mulberyy Slouch Hat_webI have always wanted a slouchy hat and I found this one by Danyel Pink over at Crazy Socks Crochet and in just a few hours I had this made. It is made in Patons Romance 8ply (merino rich cashmere) and it feels lovely and soft. This is mine, but I believe I will be fighting my daughter for it when the weather gets colder (I’ll make her another one!) Thanks Danyel for the great and easy pattern!

Lime Coasters_webI also found a lovely vintage pattern for coasters by Sandi Marshall over at about.com that really appealed to me. So far I have made four coasters, and then I also found a simple basket pattern over at Cherry Heart and just by sheer luck it ended up being the perfect size to hold the coasters. I’m aiming to make eight coasters which should fit very nicely in the basket.

I’m planning to add some crochet items to my Etsy shop, which I will link up to here. I just have to make some things that my daughter can’t lay claim to (maybe if I don’t show her? 🙂 )

  1. Hi! You make lovely crochet items. 😀 I discovered your blog while looking for crochet patterns and really like it. 😀 So much so that I thought I’d pass on an award which had been given to me: The Liebster Award. Take a moment, if you can find the time, to accept this nomination and pass it on to others you feel deserving of the same recognition. ~DM Peachey from apeachintime~

  2. Hi your blog is so lovely!
    Unfortunatly, 2 sites are not longer available, the coasters and the sloochy hat, i wonder if you can share them ?
    Best regards from France
