Jane’s Love – Pattern Out NOW

To buy this pattern CLICK HERE I don’t remember the exact day that I stumbled upon Jane from @queen_babs on Instagram. I was probably just doing the usually scroll and something bright and beautiful no doubt caught my eye. Most likely one of her famous yarn bombs, because now, when I think of Jane, I foremost think of her beautiful contagious smile and then all of the colourful crochet work she has does. Since then, our friendship via social media grew a little bit more with each comment and reply. To the… Read More

The Crochet Hook up – Taking over 365 days of Crochet Flowers

Some of you may have noticed that I’m no longer running the #365daysofcrochetflowers. It was a hard decision that had to be made.  I started off with a big plan and goal to make 365 flowers, basically one each day for the year. However, it took over my life. How? You ask, they are only small flowers? Well a lot is actually involved in designing and releasing a pattern no matter the size. I’d often leave designing the flower for the next day, the night before after the usual-busy day with my… Read More

Slowly ripping it open, you notice it’s… Read More

The Year That Was

There are only a few more days left of 2017 so I thought it would be a good idea to look back at the makes of this year.

JANUARY Well I was still busy doing secret crochet for my book back then so could never reveal too much about it all. All but one of these photos are items in my book. See the top… Read More

Lara’s Lapghan; December 2017

I was sitting on my lounge one night crocheting as you do when I had a brain burst and decided to make a lapghan (blanket for your lap when sitting on the lounge).  I tried to change up my Cora pattern but it just wasn’t what I had in mind, and if I don’t like something, I don’t make it. So I went to bed and slept on it (no, not my adapted Cora square) hehe. Most people are at their creative best first thing in the morning so I pulled out… Read More
