Paper Artsy Flowers - CAS strikes again!!!

Good evening, how are you all doing?

I haven't had much time for blogging lately so thought I would pop on quickly and share a couple of CAS cards that I made a few weeks ago.  I thought I had already blogged one of them but it doesn't look like it when I scroll through the posts.

The images are from PaperArtsy and I have coloured the first two with Polychromo pencils and the last one with Inktense pencils.

Well there isn't much to tell you apart from work is rubbish at the moment, I just want it all to fall into place but somehow it's not looking pretty at the moment.

Have a lovely evening and thanks for popping over, sorry for being a very bad blogger.

Crochet again and the lovely Janey!

Morning to you all,
Hope you are all doing OK....Monday morning has come round again very quickly!

I managed to fit in some playtime with the wool and crochet hook again..... It is all beginning to make a little bit more sense to me and I managed to follow a pattern albeit a very very simple pattern....thanks to Anna over at Crochet n Play for the free pattern for the Mug Cozy :)

So here is my attempt.......

The weekend was good, I went to a Ukulele festival on Saturday in Leamington which was good fun and I managed to see the lovely Janey playing with the Leamington Strummers, then off to  a hen party on Saturday evening for the lovely Michelle. 

Check out Janey Smith on YOuTube doing a SW version of "I will survive" called I will Optimise...well worth a look :)

Thanks for popping over today...
See you again soon with more crochet that I managed over the weekend.

Wool and Hooks for a change!

Good evening to you all.....
I have been a busy been at work with lots of driving and no time for blogging or crafting  :(  But thought I would share my new love for wool and hooks!

Three years ago while we were on holiday in Norfolk I bought a crochet magazine with free wool and free crochet hook and I managed with a lot of perseverance to learn a couple of stitches....   

I managed to make a blanket ....I Started off and just kept on is kind of out of shape but not bad for a first attempt!    

Since then I have been trying to find someone who lives near me who can crochet but to no avail.....   There is however a sewing shop in Kenilworth that holds classes for crochet but they are usually on a Wednesday lunch time.  I spotted on their last list of classes that they have started to hold a class every month on a Saturday morning!  

I went along last Saturday and the teacher was great.....only 3 of us for the class so lots of time to spend with each of us.  We practiced the basic stitches

Since then I have been following a YouTube video to make the squares above....easier than it looks to be honest.
So watch this space and hopefully I can make another blanket or at least a cushion cover! There are so many wonderful projects on Pinterest too......I think this is my new favourite thing!

Have a good evening and I will hopefully catch you all again soon.........I'm off to play with more wool and hooks :)
