Welcome to my little corner of the internet! I'm a single mum with a
beautiful daughter and I started crocheting 4 years ago when I quit
smoking, I'm a huge fan of the granny square and mostly spend my free time
making blankets as well as occasionally trying to expand my
crafty skills :-)
It was my dear friend Jem's birthday last week and as I'm ridiculously low on funds I decided to make a couple of crystal pendants-they turned out very nicely but then I spent ages looking in the house for a suitable bag! Couldn't find one anywhere so ended up crocheting a little purse for them :-) Jem's very into ladybirds so I attempted to crochet one into the design-not too bad for a first go! I've taken some pics but they really are quite dreadful....the one on the left is a very dark Garnet and the one on the right is a smoky quartz. I wanted to add a zip to the purse but didn't measure it properly and ran out of time so instead attached a button and crochet a chain to loop round it-remind me though never to leave my crochet hook at home again though please? Ended up trying to chain using a darning needle on the bus which was ridiculously difficult!
but I think the button was a nice finishing touch and Jem loved her little homemade gift :-)
