Tapestry Crochet October 22, 2014

So, I have tried tapestry crochet before, without much success, but this time – hooray! – it worked!

I really needed a small pouch for notions, one that could be tucked into my bag, just big enough to hold a tape measure, a tin of stitch markers and a sewing-up needle, a small pair of needlework scissors, and maybe a spare crochet hook or two!

And here it is…


And if we look inside…


After completing the tapestry crochet body, I carried on just with the orange to create a flap by decreasing at each edge. Added a tassel and a loop to fasten and ta dah! There we have it – one tapestry crochet travelling notions pouch!

So, on a rainy afternoon there is nothing better than messing around with some yarn and a hook! On this occasion I decided to try tapestry crochet, again. I just need a small pouch, just big enough for a small pair of scissors, a tin that holds stitch markers, and maybe a spare crochet hook. So here goes…

On the last day of September… September 30, 2014

Well, I know it’s a cliché, but I really do not know where the time is going! Summer really is over now and we’re moving into Autumn, a time of year I love. As the days begin to get shorter, I start making more soups and stews, pies and crumbles, and my crafty mind turns once more to socks and shawls as the temperature drops and we require more layers and extra warmth.

One current WIP is my Sunday Shawl. I love this pattern by The Little Bee, and I’m really happy with how mine is coming along!



I’m just about to start the colour changes now, so there will be more photos to follow.

Happy Tuesday xx
