Crochet heritage

Last week I was given a treasure chest. A glorious collection of my late Auntie’s crochet bits and bobs. This collection had very special meaning, as my Auntie and my grandmother taught me to knit and crochet when I was a little girl.

   
    
 Since then, I have been in crochet heaven, sorting and sifting through my treasure.

I discovered yarn,  vintage patterns and hooks….the greatest find was some of my Auntie’s unfinished work. So I set to work sewing in ends and finishing (as best as I could as I am not skilled at such beautiful intricute crochet).

In honour  of my Auntie Pamela Noreen Loveridge I would like to share some of her work…

   
    
    
    
    
    
   

Spring is on it’s way….

I have recently finished two Spring projects just in time for my garden to bloom. I adore this time of year, the colours available in yarn and emerging in the garden fill me with gratitude. When the world around me is busy, busy, busy, Colour helps me to stay in the moment. X

















Weddings, crochet and colour

The last few weeks have been busy, busy, busy preparing for my eldest son’s wedding. My daughter in law entrusted me with mandela making for a Victorian Sweet cart and decorating a Wishing Well. I worried about every detail but I needn’t of fretted….
