News

It's been really hard to blog recently, I'm working on a new Fair Isle book for Cico Publishing, designing for Simply Crochet, working on a new project for a publisher who produces some lovely childrens books: Make Believe Ideas, working with a new exciting company who run online classes called The Amazings, getting the workshops up and running at the new venue and moving house! So forgive me for lack of news.

The new house is just fantastic. It's a converted barn just outside Lewes in East Sussex and it's SO good to be back in East Sussex and near Lewes - I just love it here. I'm having some new photos done by a lovely young photographer on Friday, so I should have some new photos of the barn soon.

Sadly Monty, our lovely 17 year old Border Collie didn't make it to the new house and he is very much missed, but Poppy, our Golden Retriever and Cocoa the grumpy cat have settled in well. Cocoa even caught a rabbit and dragged it through the cat flap, so he must be happy!

Don't forget the next workshop on Saturday 20th July. It's a Beginner's Crochet class, so please come and see the new place and have a lovely day here learning how to crochet. Let me know if you'd like to join.

New book by Cico, Cute & Easy Crochet with Flowers is due out in September and here is a little preview:

I know books get called easy in the titles to tempt beginners. But it can be off-putting too to have something you are so pleased and proud of that took a lot of work and effort, called 'easy'. Also not everyone is a beginner and we would like to move forward but there never is a 'next' stage. Even if the things in your books are not strictly easy, they are not strictly advanced either. It would be nice to be able to be challenged and to progress with knowledge.
