But in all fairness it’s been so busy! I don’t think I’ve blogged since the end of August!!! Well we’ve been up to lots since then, that’s for sure.
We’ve finally finished the Knitcraft autumn CAL yayyy!!!!! Although I’m slightly nervous it might be a little marmite but it certainly different to anything we’ve done before. Hopefully I can share some pictures soon.
We had the September Crochet Sanctuary and it was fabulous!!! We had the lovely heather from @kcacouk host a fabulous workshop for us, we made the most gorgeous relaxing Ralph’s, they were so cute!!!!
We started our Friday evening with Wool couture Mabel bunnies!! I mean how fab is that?! Designed by petals craft and home Alison Holloway who just so happens to be hosting a workshop for us next year
I’ve pinched a few pics as I’m ashamed to say I’ve not finished mine just yet. But I will!! I’ve also bought Lionel the lamb from wool couture and Mr Penguin!
The next day everyone worked on hot water bottles designed by myself and @lyndascraftroom
Then of course the gorgeous relaxing Ralph’s !!
Then the Sunday consisted of finishing off items, it was just a great weekend all round.
On the Tuesday after we attended the opening of wool couture in Sheffield, I’ve liked wool couture for quite some time, since finding Mabel bunny, but to see their new store was something else, I bought Lionel there and a wooden wreath which is love heart shaped to crochet around, unfortunately they’re still in the boot of my car, according to Mr Wee House Of Crochet my yarn addiction is getting out of hand 🙄🙄🙄.
Anyway!! We were back again at wool couture the Saturday after for a workshop on macrame! I’d never tried it before but I remember my mum making owls with conkers as eyes when I was tiny, how I don’t know because she’s soooo not a craft person! We thoroughly enjoyed the workshop hosted by Claire
I would definitely recommend a workshop there, and David make the most amazing scones!!!! The price was so reasonable and what I really liked was that it was due to finish at 13:00, but Claire just carried on she did ask if anyone minded, which was great because I half expect at these workshops to be finished dead on the dot, but we carried on until we’d finished.
Whilst I was there I noticed Mr Penguin, even though Lionel was still in my boot! Mr Penguin wasn’t for sale so we thought they might of been waiting for yarndale, and they were!!!!!
Because on Sunday just we attended yarndale!!! Told you we’d been busy! We even got some cheesy crochet Sanctuary hoodies made up for it ha!!!!
Yarndale was good, we still had trouble parking, I think next time we’ll just head for the park and ride
We met poleivie!! And I got a gorgeous hook from her stand
Plus Mr Penguin, it was a good couple of hours out and fab to see some of our fellow hookers!!
So the CAL was posted yesterday to Hobbycraft yayyy!!! Which means I can finish some wip and finish planning for November which is going to be phenomenal!!! We’ve also got our one of Christmas 1 day special in December by the way we’ve still got one of those available if anyone wants it……..Book here and!!! We are also hosting a morning and afternoon workshop for amanda blooms big sale in altrincham, which we are really excited about!! I think there might be 3 spaces left! Book here! It’s £5 to get in and proceeds go to The brain tumour charity in memory of Jenny, then if you want try our workshop it’s an additional £10, and it’ll be worth it trust me!!
Before then though we’ve got our crochetathon in memory of baby fern 🌿 where we will be spending the day crocheting item for babies born too soon, we would like to thank everyone that has donated items and yarn so far, it means the world to ferns family, Sarah ferns mum is raiding money for 2 very worth while charities, she’s doing this by getting crafty and selling boxed photo frames, they’re simply stunning please find her on Instagram and Facebook I’m struggling to add a link!! But here’s and example it’s just lovely
I was completely overwhelmed to receive this.
Anyway I promise not to leave it too long until my next post!!!!
Happy hooking xx
