About Me

My photo

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 :-)

Sisters Gift Exchange!

I meant to post about this last week but it has been a little busy here so instead here's a huge post with lots of pictures!  The sisters gift exchange was so lovely-it really showcased some of our diverse talents as well as being such a treat to get happy post :-)
So from Thea I got:

She made a GORGEOUS book cover and teabags with beautiful cheer-you-up tags on, two sweet heart buttons, a chocolate biscuit and a mug-hug!  Which fits my favourite mug perfectly by the way :-)  Thanks Thea, I love them!

From Jessica there was :


She made a stunning bookmark with lace crochet and a card with lace crochet hearts, a cute biscuit box (complete with biscuits!) and a lovely night light hand glass-painted with hearts :-)  She also sent some seed for the growing season! Thanks Jess, they're really beautiful <3

My offerings look like this-

Jess:

I've been getting into wood burning of late so I 'embellished' a couple of photo frames and I used my wire jewellery book to create the necklaces.  I crocheted a little bag for the necklaces with a few little crochet hearts to decorate and a couple of pretty flowers :-)  My offerings turned up a day late but hopefully I'll be more organised next time!  It was a lot of fun and hopefully my sisters liked them <3
