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…
I have spent a glorious few days immersed in colour and crochet. For our wedding anniversary my husband and I visited the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. I have always wanted to visit the V & A for the opportunity to surround myself with art and design. I have posted just a few of the exhibits that caught my eye.
Although it has been a hectic few days I have found time (up at a ridiculously early time) to work on my doll’s house , complete an ipad sleeve and start a new project..a poncho. I have included a picture of my son’s birthday just because the colours rock!
Life can sometimes get in the way of crafting. However, as much as I possibly can I try and enjoy every moment. Crochet and crafting helps me stay in the present moment and for that I am truely grateful.
Hope you all enjoy the photos..
The bank holiday weekend was a real mixed bag.
The garden had a make over thanks to my very talented mother in law. Another person’s perspective was invaluable as always.
Easter was a time of celebration starting with a family meal, an Easter Egg hunt and culminating in a broken tooth (mine!).
The bank holiday was spent car booting, visiting one of my favourite places Norbury Junction and finishing my latest crochet project.
For years, I have secretly dreamed of acquiring a dolls
house and my dream came true thanks to my local car boot.
I am proud to announce I was a cash buyer and there is no mortgage on the property!
I now have the bare bones and can look foward to decorating. It will of course be full of colour.
The love the colours to found whenever canal boats are in the vicinity. A canal boat is another dream but that’s for another time..
And finally, last but not least I have finished my blanket. I have aptly named it ‘Kaleidoscope’. It will eventually take pride and place on my grand daughter’s future bed.
I am glowing with pride and I hope to publish the pattern as soon as I find a free moment. Hope you all like it. Xxx
