My Creative Space

Despite
fears and insecurities about all crafty pursuits that are 'long fibre' related..

With...
the assistance of the video tute by Kirsty,
the excellent written instructions by Lara,
some YouTube reminders
and the sage words of my friend 'blogless Judy' (two chain in the corners, one chain along the sides) aaahhh now it makes sense .....

....it would seem that I am doing it!

Now just to Google 'how to join on the next ball of wool when crocheting' and we'll be off again...

Background fabric is from Kitty Yoshido's Brooklyn Heights range - for a future project, for me.

For a range of ideas on great ways to keep warm in winter take a trip to Kirsty's place.

This is on my 'to do soon' list because I have done a whole 3 granny squares now so I think I can ;)

Hooray, hooray for you! Email me when you want to join. I make house calls/cafe calls for locals. x

It's looking fabulous.
