New Crochet Designs


I've designed two crochet projects for DMC which have just been released. You can find more information about where to buy the patterns from this website: http://www.dmccreative.co.uk/Products/Crochet-Collection/2012-Autumn-Winter-Crochet-Patterns/Homeware.aspx

I hope you'll like them. I particularly love the throw. I used Catherine Wheel stitch, which is one of my current favourites and really quite easy once you get the hang of it. The colours in this throw are really gorgeous, they're current trend colours and made using DMC's Natura cotton thread. You can't crochet really quickly with a cotton thread, but the look is really very stunning.

Let me know what you think.....

Breaking News ....

I'm fed up of hearing about Barclays Bank being 'breaking news'. This is much more exciting..... I've found a new venue to hold my Quilting, Crochet and Knitting Workshops:



I'm moving this week to Loudwater, Nr Rickmansworth, Herts and I've been looking for a new venue and this is just round the corner from where I will be living and it's gorgeous!

The Loudwater Farm, Subud House, Loudwater Lane, Rickmansworth, Herts, WD3 4HG. website: www.loudwaterfarm.co.uk.


Set in the beautiful valley of the River Chess, just 30 minutes from central London and just half a mile from Junction 18 of the M25, with plenty of parking. The rooms are really beautiful with lots of space and beautiful, peaceful views. This is an ideal getaway for the day.

There is also Bed & Breakfast available at the farm for those who would like a weekend treat.

I have just been and booked some dates:
