Hello wednesday–quickie prezzie


Hello everyone, hope you all had a great Easter break.
We had a wonderful time away and have arrived back with fully charged batteries and busting with ideas for new projects.
The weather does help, it is glorious here in Dorset.

Before Easter it was Rachie’s birthday, I was well prepared and had been thinking of a birthday prezzie for her for ages.
I gave her a course on crochet, with a local teacher………………
As she was totally new to this craft, I needed to get her a few bits to take to class.

She also needed something to unwrap on the day.

I found some chunky wool in her favourite colours, cranberry and cream, scissors, a starter book. 
Janet had given her a set of hooks, so all that was needed was a little bag to keep her hooks in.


hello wednesday crochet bag

I used our tape measure ribbon and Keep Calm and carry yarn ribbon for the draw strings.
Thought they were rather apt.

I am not sure what I have done, but Rachie has fallen head over heels in love with crochet!
Last day of the school holidays today, she went to see Tony in his office and said she was feeling very unwell and had a terrible tummy ache……
he started to believe her until he saw her crochet bag!

She wanted to go home to crochet!!!

You will be pleased to hear, Rachie is at home sat in the garden……..yes crocheting, while I am busy adding new goodies to the website.

More glorious French lace can be found here.  It is not cotton but Viscose still made on traditional looms.
It is the lace I used at the bottom of my Great British Sewing Bee Dress and comes in lots of colours.


Enjoy the rest of the afternoon, maybe I should go and join Rachie…..
