Crochet Confidence equals Improvement! Week 23

I rarely have time for my own projects at the moment, but when my neighbour invited me & hubby to their horse truck christening party / BBQ at the farm next door (any excuse for a drink LOL) I had to get a new idea going.... 

....more soon!

 Crochet Confidence equals Improvement!

On the left is homework - on the right is a piece made in the 2nd week of class with a little encouragement & crochet confidence, just look at the improvement!

.....and again here!

And another fantastic Improvement!

A few tweeks & reminders soon got them all back into the swing of it!  There's a lot to remember in 
Lesson 1 so this is understandable.

Another of my more advance pupils is giving chevrons and waves a tester

 Thanks to Lorraine at the Nail Workshop in Okeford Fitzpaine, I am not ashamed to show my hands off when teaching!

I love the daisies!

 One of my old pupils, GW, brought me some lovely Dewhurst's Sylko cotton reels to put in my vintage drawer cabinet
Wasn't that kind of her?  I am so thrilled

In Sparrow UK in Shaftesbury on Friday we made Granny Triangles & Rectangles

It was a shame that AR couldn't make it on Friday - if you are reading this I hope that you are feeling better xx

I didn't make all these in one go! This is my Triangle a Day Blanket.

Today is 166 (Sunday) and I have 163 triangles so far so I need to catch up

And look at this lovely cushion that SD made - to think that 6 months ago she couldn't crochet!!

Ah, yes, here's Bertina who is still a WIP

However after adding a "Festival going" flower garland

She's all ready for her adventures

Here she is safe & overlooking the celebrations!

And some  flowers from my local field picked whilst dog walking

Aren't the colours of nature fantastic?

So are these colours - I went to my local wool shop and got drawn to these straight away... 

And finally....

My latest pattern will be available in the next issue of Inside Crochet Magazine....

Photo: Issue 55 is safely at the printers, with 26 gorgeous patterns for you to enjoy.
Here's one of our favourites:
