Day 207 - Wow what a day of fantastic Crochet News!!

Before  I launch into the fantastic day of Crochet News I am going to share Day 206 from yesterday & today's square for Day 207

Aren't they lovely colours?  The are from Deramores  "Baby Double Knitting" and they are lovely to Crochet with

Fantastic Crochet News #1

I placed this ad in the Blackmore Vale Magazine today & I have already had 4 phone calls to reserve a place!!

Actually make that 5 as I have just had another call!

I then got my post today & along with my returned pieces of work that were sent off for their photo shoot the other week I also got these lovely goodies to wish me a speedy recovery.

How thoughtful is that!
Thanks  to Make & Craft & Craft Makes

Then I get mentioned by Tracey Todhunter - a crochet designer (and knit designer too as well as a great baker & volunteer for community projects)  & a fellow crochet teacher that I greatly admire, on her wonderful blog 

I am also very proud to announce that the Granny Square Bag pattern that I blogged about yesterday

has generated 800 pins on PINTEREST!! Wow.

One of the "pinners" was Lucy from Attic24 - yes that wonderful Crochet Blog that EVERYONE loves

& this is what she said when I thanked her for her pin!

Attic24 Ali, you are more than welcome, I truly LOVE your bag, it's just the sort of thing that makes my heart melt. Simple idea, but totally made gorgeous by the colours. Fab!xxxxx

And finally......

Did you know that the latest Inside Crochet Magazine is out?

And my Garden Coasters are just one of the FANTASTIC patterns that you'll find in there
