Vintage Vibes

After a sickly Christmas and New Year, I have slowly got back to crocheting. This week has seen three new makes ... all with a vintage vibe.

Twilley's Book of Instant Crochet has a gorgeous pattern for a Crochet Dressing Table Set. I remember as child elder relatives would have these type of sets.
This baby hat works up quickly in DK yarn. I can see myself embellishing further makes with flowers for a springtime feel.
I keep a lot of the crochet magazines I buy and this matinee cardigan (Inside Crochet issue 42) has been bookmarked for some time. It was a dream to make.
Custom orders are welcome... just get in touch.

Craft Stall Beginnings

Christmas is just over a week away and it's time to reflect on the Christmas fairs I took part in during December.
This was something new for me and Leasowes View and I was chuffed to bits with peoples comments and the sales I made. I didn't expect to do so well as a craft stall beginner.
My stall comprised of collars, baubles, wreaths, coasters, doilies, scarfs, cowls, hanging hearts and fingerless gloves. 
My spare time between fairs was spent beavering away, replacing the stock I had sold.
I think I have the bug.

Cotton Crochet Poppy

After recently discovering the joys of 2ply cotton yarn, I decided to make a poppy with it, for this year's period of Remembrance.
This pattern, by Alla Koval, is great for my stash of Scheepjes Maxi.

A few black beads finished it off perfectly.
