Happy New Year




So here we are at the end of the Christmas holidays.
Where did the time go?
  I has so many plans of blog posts to write!

December was a colourful month of crochet
 with baubles and stars flying off the production line

It is wonderful to have completed
 a whole 12 months catalogue of my makes
if you have missed any you can see them all 

December 2014

Its great to have time to stop and look back
time to be thankful
to count our blessings

2014 was a very productive year for me
 and I thank you all for accompanying me
 on my hooky journey

2014 makes

I have had so many orders,
 far more than I can cope with along side a full time job! 
I will be doing my best to meet the orders
 of those who have been promised a place in my order book
 although I must say much later and more slowly than expected.

This year I made 43 blankets
 and that was in between lots of other goodness
such as hot water bottles, scarves, flower garlands, 
poppies, book marks, cushions and  phone cases.

Blankets of 2014
2014 has been such an exciting adventure for me
 working with magazines, yarn shops and manufacturers

more than I could have hoped for

beyond my widest dreams

So
with new plans ahead
I have decided not to take orders any more

to enable me to create
to develop my crochet 
I will be going on a yarn journey this year trying new things

I aim to blog more and write up tips and patterns for you
and I will be selling occasionally from my




2015 has begun in a very colourful way
with my plum circle of friends blanket

the colours are delicious
so vibrant and rich
I used 28 shades of
my favourite blanket making yarn


I have now completed Lucy's blanket in 2 weeks!
If you missed the story and beginning of this you can read it 



Now I am working on the deep lacey border
 but have sadly run out of yarn 
and am waiting for the postman!

So there's nothing else for it but to start my next creation!

Do watch out on FB and IG for daily updates as I hook
and I will be back next week with details of the border.

Happy New Year to you all

I just came over from Little Woolie who mentioned your 43 blankets? I love your projects and I have a thing for blankets but I am not as productive as you! LOL!

I am enjoying following you on IG Heather - your blankets are wonderful. I can’t believe that you made so many last year and work full time. Do you crochet when you are asleep? xxx Kathryn
