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 :-)

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
