I made him for my friends up the road at Goldhill Organics
Isn't he just adorable?
I love them & when I was teaching at Sparrow UK this week I saw these lovely buttons
And too good to undo
So I decided to turn them into wall art
In my classroom
And they look FAB
My pupils have gone Mandala Mad
These are just 2 of the ones made this week
One of my pupils AR brought this amazing bag to show off - isn't it lovely? It's from Lucy - Attic 24 and is just adorable.
To think she couldn't crochet a few months ago & hates or maybe I should change that to dislikes to crochet in colour! Maybe I have been a Rainbow influence on her??
We also practiced Basketweave stitch
Which turned out rather well I thought
Bavarian Crochet Workshop
On Saturday 31st May, 6 pupils attended my All Day Bavarian Crochet Workshop
These are both made in DK, but look at the difference tension makes to the size!
Understanding the pattern can be a little tricky
As there are lots of "clusters" and decreases to contend with
But once you get the hang of it
It's not only therapeutic, but addictive too!
And fun of course
Other FAB crochet work to show you
One of my pupils made this flower in DMC and gave it to me to put on my favourite dog walking hat, which I have done and it looks GREAT!
This is the latest update on the Triangles blanket
FE made a necklace inspired by the new Crochet book by DK Publishing
This is a really good book, so well put together & with some great photo's and of course patterns by a lot of amazingly talented designers.
Another WIP by JP - loving it so far
This lady was chuffed to bits when she made her first round of a Granny Square
BP has made this lovely cushion cover
And a baby hat which was whisked off to Australia
That's it from me this week hookers!
