Christmas chaos!


Here’s a little example of why I’ve been struggling to find time to blog recently.  Meet Donna the Reindeer from the amazing Edward’s Menagerie collection by Kerry Lord of Toft Alpaca. She was at the top of the list of projects I wished to complete this year as I didn’t have time to make her last year. I’m very satisfied with her, not least because I’m not terribly confident with embroidering the faces and she only has eyes to contend with; no nose or mouth!

I am also hoping to complete a pair of crochet gnomes (you may have seen them in a recent issue of Simply Crochet magazine) and a Christmas tree skirt. This is in addition to some gifts I’m still hoping to make and all the other usual Christmas preparations. So much to do, so little time!

There is also the matter of the International Diploma in Crochet that I have decided to undertake AND preparations for my very own crochet classes that I start teaching in the New Year at Dolly’s Craft Corner in Bradford!

I’m not quite sure how I’m going to get everything done around work and Christmas socialising but I usually find that if you just keep going everything has a way of working out in the end! 

Thanks for reading x

I love to make things, usually from patterns but as my experience increases I'm starting to design my own projects. My main skills are knitting, crochet, cross stitch and needlepoint, and I'm a reasonably handy baker too!
