I was going to save this for next week, but I’m currently working away from home in Harrogate, staying at faulty towers, it’s 00:34 and I’ve just got back to my room after a false fire alarm, I wouldn’t of been surprised if it had been a real one, this place is so badly maintained!
Anyway, I’m wide awake now so thought, ooh blog!
I finished an order I received from my cousins wife, she had asked for a giraffe tie back and a zebra tie back, I did share a pic of the zebra a few blog posts ago, but he’s now finished!
As you can tell, I do not have one single pair of curtains in my house, at all, so blinds had to do!
I’ve also finished the giraffe
Who has super long legs, both of these were designed by Nice and Cosee crochet she has so many tie back patterns! I’m pleased with these though, super cute
Which means!!! I’ve started my medium sized Ubuntu by scheepjes! I’ve really gotten stuck in and I’ve just this minute finished all of the diamonds to part 3, although not many pics
I’m really enjoying it, I’ve just to finish the main. Colour part on each diamond before I can move into the half diamonds.
I’m also working on some Christmas designs for Knitcraft with @lyndascraftroom it doesn’t half feel weird crocheting Christmas in June! But we’ve been given a brand new yarn to use and it’s lovely, with plenty of colours too! But more of that when I’m allowed.
And then there’s our designs for The crochet Sanctuary but I can’t show you those either! Not until next week anyway, I’m mega excited for the crochet Sanctuary this weekend. We’ve got our guest designer Zeens and Roger who’s work and podcasts I’ve admired for a while, so it will be nice to actually meet Rosina in person, and of course work on one of her designs. I’m so looking forward to meeting up with our regular hookers ha!! And some new people too! We’ve a couple of surprises for them this weekend too!
And I didn’t think I’d be saying this but…….2020 has almost sold out!!! We’ve literally got 5 weekend spaces left for April, 5! That April we have Lynne Rowe from the wool nest (on Instagram) hosting our guest workshop, Lynne did a workshop for us last year, and we enjoyed it so much we’ve booked her again for next year. We’ve lots of crochet days available though, which is good, as although it’s nice being sold out it’s nice to have spaces to fill!
Ooooh I’ve been shopping! I really should just stop! However I am currently waiting on a delivery for this! I’ve pinched this pic from Etsy it’s not mine!
So lynda bought this, when you pull the cow down it plays a tune!!! From the X files!!!! It’s amazing! And it’s bigger than I thought too. So I’m currently waiting delivery!
I’ve also bought……and I’ve pinched this pic from Woolly Mama Yarns I can never add a link for this on Etsy, so I apologise, she has a yarn club called back to the 80’s, I could not resist this!
It’s so watermelon! And it’s actually called ‘I carried a watermelon’!! I’m so excited, lord knows what I’m going to do with it, I’m hoping it’ll be there when I get home tomorrow as it’s been dispatched.
I’ve also pre-ordered some books!
This is by the authors of dragons and unicorns and I loved it so much I couldn’t resist!
Who doesn’t love Mabel bunny and co? Wool Couture are releasing a book!
Again this is pre-order, and should be September, literally so excited!
I suppose I’d best get some sleep need to be up in just 5 hours!
