This Little Welsh Seaside Town

Hello Creatives! And here is the second part to my travelling series! Long story short, George didn’t/couldn’t attend last years graduation ceremony for his undergraduate degree although he did manage to begin his masters degree in the meantime! Therefore, we had graduation number 1 for 2017 on July the 19th, and his second graduation will…

I Don’t Know About You… But I’m Feeling TWENTY TWO!

Hello Creatives!He’s post number 1 of my recent travel’s (im hoping to post one a day!). If you have no idea what i’m on about and have wondered where the crochet has escaped to, have a catch up here! So as i was selecting photos to add, i realised just how many i had from this…

Where Have I Been?

Hello Creatives! So unfortunately, my crochet has been put to one side fo a while, due to the fact that i have been ridiculously busy with my masters research proejct…. well, i should have been but instead ive been a social butterfly (the masters research project is currently throwing my stress level through the roof however)….

I Tried Rug Punching!

Hello Creatives! So I've heard many names (I believe latch hooking may be one?) and seen different techniques but I've given it a go with what I have, and I have found that I love Rug Punching! I've also found it's a great way to use old scraps of yarn that are too short to…

My First Crochet Pillowcase

Hello Creatives! On the 2nd of July it was my 22nd birthday so George and I decided to jump on a plane to Spain to spend it with my family! I really wanted to bring a gift along with me, but had been so busy that I hadn’t been able to pick anything up, so…

How I organise my yarn! 

Hello creatives!  So up until a week ago, my yarns were A MESS. I kept getting new baskets to put it al in, but because I’m not organised enough they’d get all tangled and I’d forget half of the stuff I owned because I couldn’t see it! I’m sure you’ve all been there… But after…

I tried C2C Crochet! 

Hello creatives,  So I’ve finally handed in my final assignment for my masters degree (minus my research project/thesis/dissertation which is due in September)! Yay! So obviously, the first thing I did was pick up my crochet hooks and see what I could try!  So after seeing so many people on Instagram doing corner to corner,…

My very first stall!

Hello creatives,  Long time no see/write! I’ve been super duper stressed with my masters second semester deadlines fast approaching (and counting for a third of my masters degree 😭!). However, I have been busy crocheting away as today I held my first stall!  It was held at my university campus, and was the first of…

I Tried Tunisian Crochet!

Hello, Creatives! So I’ve recently given Tunisian Crochet a go, and I absolutely love it! I’m currently doing it on regular crochet hooks, but my Tunisian Crochet hooks are on their way in the post! I love how similar it looks to knitting, but isn’t!  Here’s theee different stitches I’ve managed so far (I can’t…

My first commissioned piece!

Hello creatives, So recently I was asked if I could help out with a birthday present. They said they looked everywhere for a nice toy camel but couldn’t find anything nice or cheap enough to give as a birthday present, so they approached me! ME!  Now as you may have seen, I have only ever made…

Picking myself up again

Hello creatives, If you read my last post you’ll know that the past few weeks haven’t been easy. However, the way I have coped is by keeping my mind busy (or else everything hits me like a truck and I’m a sobbing mess). It may not work for everyone, but I thought I’d let you…

Heartache

I lost my warrior.  My grandmother was the cheekiest, purest soul.  She left this world with me by her side at 4.05am on the 2nd of March 2017 in a very peaceful manner.  She put up such a fight, but unfortunately, it was a battle she wasn’t going to win at the beautiful age of…
