Crochet Therapy

This weekend I have hardly put my hook down
it has been a much needed dose of crochet therapy!

just holding my hook

all help to de stress and unwind after a busy week

lazy mornings with coffee in bed
working on an old wip

 I have been completing my 
African Flower Hexagonal blanket

this is my first attempt at these
and rather pleased I am!

Next week I will show you the full view
and its lovely shape

A new tea cosy smothered in roses
was on its way to a customer this week

and the pretty baby blanket was completed
ready to gift

Oh I like feeling rather smug
 thinking I have the blanket ready even before baby is born!

and finally this weekend I have been playing
making something new

I think it important occasionally to break away from orders
and try new ideas
to inspire customers in the future

so I set to work on a cheap plastic stool from a bargain shop
and transformed it with the addition of a crocheted cover

this was such fun and so fast to make
and is now a very pretty side table

I think all my family will be getting them for presents now!

Thank you all for your lovely correspondence again this week
it is my pleasure to share
and it pleases me so much to know that you enjoy!

Happy hookin

I love your hexi blanket very colourful. I've been working on granny squares in the garden today and now back to my granny stripe as it's chilly.

What a busy weekend! You are a real inspiration, and your work is so beautiful. I did manage to finish a project, an afghan for a friend's 50th birthday which was on Thursday, luckily her party was not until yesterday evening, it was completed yesterday lunchtime (talk about the skin of your teeth) although we have been away for just under a fortnight. Today, I have finished sewing all the squares together on the previous (almost finished) blanket, so although I still have the border to do I feel like I have really achieved a lot!! Cannot wait to get started on a new crochet project.

Hello Heather, I love lazy mornings with coffee in bed and I did just the same yesterday, and today as I am on annual leave from work for two whole weeks. It's so lovely to be away from the grind of being busy that work brings.
Your Hexagonal blanket is beautiful, I love the colours you have chosen, it is a bright ray of sunshine.
The teapot cosy is pure fun and I'm sure your customer will be delighted with it.
You can be very smug about your baby blanket, it's so pretty and colourful and ready before baby is born, well done, great work.
I just may steal your stool/side table idea, such an easy and quick transformation.
Thanks for sharing everything with us today

I have been working on a knitting project this weekend and I'm having fun with colourful stripes.

Lovely works Heather - you are an inspiration the way you keep producing such pretty makes. I love my coffee and crochet mornings - too much really - no housework gets done!!

Beautiful and stunning makes Heather.
I love your hexie blanket, the colours are gorgeous. The tea pot cosy is brilliant and far too nice to use. I am sure your customer will be delighted. And, wow the baby blanket is stunning.

I've stumbled across your blog and love your African Flowers blanket. The colours are gorgeous and all the ones I like. Please could I ask if you have used a denim blue as the joining colour? I've been trying to work out what colours to make my African Flower blanket with for a couple of weeks now and had thought of a pale turquoise(Stylecraft Special DK Sherbert) would do but now I've seen the blanket with a stronger shade of blue I'm smitten. I hope you don't mind me asking. Thank you, Jacqui
