Seasons Blanket

Hello everyone,

My latest pattern for Seasons Blanket is now on Etsy it can be worked in 4 colour ways and 2 sizes.  I have loved working on these blankets and choosing the colours based on the photographs I have taken.

This is winter and summer...

Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. 

This was the photograph that inspired the winter blanket.

This blanket is simple to crochet with only one row of pattern the rest is changes of colour. If you enjoy c2c blankets this could be a very good alternative as it grows quickly.

Hope you enjoy,

Winter iPhone Cover


This is a simple free pattern for a winter iPhone cover. You can chose from two different snowflakes to go on the front.  Just make sure you check you have enough rows to fit your phone, as I didn't read my own pattern and made this one a row too short...oops.

This free pattern can be found on my website....

Free iPhone pattern

Hope you enjoy,

Hobbycraft Show at Birmingham NEC


My husband and I have had a fantastic weekend at the Hobbycraft show at Birmingham NEC. Thank you for all the wonderful comments about our products and patterns.  We never expected to be quite so busy.

I really enjoy meeting new customers and having a chat about crochet although we had a few laughs about 'no knitting here' comments from my husband.

Thank you to all the returning ladies we love to have your feedback about our designs.

This was our stand once we had just set up...

The most popular patterns over the weekend seem to be Princess Blueberry and George..

Really looking forward to the next big show in March, Sewing for Pleasure.
