With all of the decorating going on in our house I’ve not done much craft, but for my birthday earlier this month I was given a crochet kit which I started on the day (whilst camped out in the kids bedroom, the only place not being plastered/plumbed in!) It was a Cath Kidston cushion kit…… Continue reading WIP Wednesday-22nd May
I’d made it my mission to complete this project before the end of the year, and managed it with a few days to spare. Way back at the end of summer, I started an Attic24 blooming flower cushion in shades to match our newly decorated bedroom. The colours were meant to pick out the ones…… Continue reading FO Friday-29th December
I’ve still managed to work on some projects this week as Mr C did all of the present wrapping whilst I was at work one day so I haven’t had to spend every evening making a mess with tape and paper.

I’ve had to sneak in a few blue rounds to make the wool go…… Continue reading Sophie’s Garden Update
There. I said it. Tonight I have had 3 hours of uninterrupted crochet time and I’ve only packed up because I have work tomorrow. I’m up to the start of round 12 of Sophie’s Garden and I just want to keep going because I’m so excited to see how the next part will turn out.…… Continue reading My Name is Mrs Craft and I am Addicted to Crochet
In a few weeks time it is a local village show, and it’s a huge two day event. I have exhibited my work there once before but decided this year I’d like to do something special. That ‘something’ is going to be Sophie’s Garden (decided after much searching of Pinterest and so on). This link…… Continue reading Sophies Garden Part 1
