Updating the shop



After a bit of thought I've given my Etsy store a quick restructure and finally relisted my booties on there. The difference being that I've sorted the booties I sell into different yarn types - all the different colours that I make with the same type of yarn are included in one listing so it is well worth clicking on each to see the different colour options available.

When I get some better quality light I'll take new bootie photos so the main photo shows all the colours available - which will hopefully make it easier for people to browse them.

Why not go and have a quick look at what is up online now and tell me what you think?

Pretty baby clothes

Happy New Year everyone! 


I'm slowly getting back into my crochet groove after a lovely Christmas break with family. My next big job is to get my Etsy shop back restocked with a bit of a re-arrange but until that happens I wanted to share my latest project - a very pretty baby dress (pattern by Marianne Cant) 



And these pretty little baby socks (pattern by Me!)

Loving granny squares


My latest crochet class went wonderfully - three new crochet recruits have mastered making granny squares and will hopefully be moving on to making plenty of exciting crochet items :-)

I love being able to teach people my favourite hobby so hopefully I'll be able to schedule another class soon.

Perfect day for a stall


With the sun shining (a rare event in a British Summer) I took along a stack of crochet goodness and set up a stall at my little boy's school Summer fair.

Because of having to make up a large batch of stock to fill a whole stall with I've been very busy recently making up lots of goodies - including a good number of my lovely new crochet flower brooches.

Hopefully over the next couple of days the good weather will continue so I can take some decent photos of all my new stock to show you.

Seemed like a good idea at the time...

Well I thought I was doing really well when I washed out this cute stackable storage container that used to be filled with bath confetti and repurposed it into button storage.

However it seems that not only can my mischievous 18 month old get into my crochet supplies she can also open this container up.

She was caught red handed with it open and quite a few of the buttons missing - these were to be found being sucked fiercely as she seemed to think these were sweets. Buttons have been taken away now and put somewhere high up...

New button supplies

I'm so excited to have a new stash of buttons to try out from paper-and-string!

These buttons are part of a new range of hand dyed buttons that are going to be made available in Sarah's online shop soon - I've managed to get my hands on some samples to test out on my booties, hair clips & some other new items I'm working on.

Right best get started...
