This week I have been playing with cotton
very pretty cotton
in my favourite Cath Kidston colours
|Stylecraft Classique Cotton
Playing with prettiness is such a treat
and was real holiday therapy
for my last week off school.
I have been working on a commission of table mats for
in Ruthin N Wales,
where I am running some crochet workshops
The pattern I am using is from an old copy of
Simply Crochet Magazine issue 12
written by the very talented Wink.
(I have adapted it slightly to make it flat
to be suitable for sitting under glass table tops)
I've had oodles of fun playing with colours
and it wasn't long before I had a pile of ten mats
but looking very sad and curly
it has to be said!
However a day later
after some pinning and spraying on my blocking mats
just look at the transformation!
I must admit that I rather love these
and am going to find them very hard to part with
and it seems that many of you do too!
So I do have plans to make more to sell in my
My Easter holidays have been and gone now
and for now I have to go back to school.
Last week I had an amazing time
taking The Spring Flower Blanket our Instagram Community Project
