About Me

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 :-)

And...I'm back!

Well, not back to my usual crochet prolificy yet-the cast came off nearly two months ago and I STILL haven't been given a physio appointment!  Thankfully, a friend has had a bunch of physio on her wrist so she came me some strengthening exercises so it's a lot better but still not completely back to normal.

I've been crocheting hard, making lots of beautiful christmass tree decorations to sell at my very first Craft Fayre-a friend of mine who makes divine Vegan cakes is sharing a stall with me so I'm making lots of little decorations and we'll both be offering Tarot readings as well.  We did a Halloween event as Tarot readers (my first ever despite reading for ten years) which was nervewracking but amazing and gave me a lot of confidence.

I'm making a range of things to sell-the fayre is next Saturday (eeek!) but so far I have about 40 items ready to go.  These include-

The patterns are from these two sites-


They're both wonderfully simple and beautiful and hopefully will prove popular...
I figure whatever I can't sell will go on the Tangled Web's page or in as little Yule gifts

I'm way behind on my crochet plans this Christmas-I have no money to speak of (there's been a number of big problems with the Jobcentre which has made things quite desperate at times) and I usually make quite a bit of the gifts-this year I'm not sure what'll happen as I'm running out of time and my wrist can't manage much.  Keep your fingers crossed for a successful Fayre on Saturday!

Hope you're all well xxxx


  1. Cute ornaments. Hope the wrist feels better soon.


  2. Good to see you back blogging and crocheting Liz. Hope you have fun at your craft sale - perhaps you could give these simple tree decorations a go too... very quick to make up



I'm so happy when someone leaves me a comment and I read every one :-) Thank you for taking the time to comment on my little blog-I try to answer every comment where I can!
