I have been teaching my pupils how to make Twitter Birds this week - they have all loved it & this is their production rate so far.....
BP has made this lovely Duck Egg Blue Bird with mad hair
SC has made "Mohican" Chick
This is my Rainbow Bird WIP
In the making....
And ML has made this Twitter Bird who looks as though he's going to pick a fight!!
So this is how it all started - Twitter Bird on the right is now in transit to become the #dorsethour mascot
If you would like to hook one too then here's the link to the pattern....http://macscrochet.blogspot.co.uk/p/for-sale.html
In other classroom news
I took 6 workshops this week! Some Beginners & some were Improvers.
The good news is that both Beginners class pupils have asked to come back for more, so that's another 4 weeks workshop that they will be taking "The Next Step" course.
S & E made these hearts, putting 2 together with some stuffing they have turned out beautifully
CF has finished the blanket that started with 1 square last September
Every Square is a different colour & a different pattern!
BP is making a cushion cover. Her stitch work is perfect.
And SC has finished her Baby Cardigan which she said she would put away for her 1st grand child - it could be 10 years away but this design is a "classic" and will never go out of baby fashion!!
CF has started this wonderful blanket, an idea / inspiration she got off the net via littlewoolie.blogspot.co.uk
And this is my wavy rainbow blanket
I also taught a Sparrow UK today & was presented with these love flowers by Hilary of Eliza James Flowers https://www.facebook.com/pages/Eliza-James-Flowers/446981595376571 I must be doing something right!
My work "station"
This is a typical scenario of what it looks like from my point of view!!
And I am so looking forward to the Vintage at the Village Hall on Monday 24th at the Corn Exchange, Blandford from 10am
It's been a busy week for me, apart from my lessons, I have been completing commissions to meet deadlines & I am happy to say that I am now on track!
I got my copy of The Complete Guide to Crochet yesterday - did you get yours. FAB patterns and they have been kind enough to included my book "Crochet for beginners who want to Improve" on their Books we Love section!
You know I like to crochet in colour right? Well here are my new welly boots
An early mothers day present from my dog Scrumpy as my old Hunters had splits in both soles. They are FAB
Ok to get back on track....
So I am now free to design my very first commission for Lets Get Crafting Knitting & Crochet How very exciting to be contributing my designs to another great magazine!
More next week hookers!
