Essential pieces of equipment! These are the ones I use most. The ones on the right are for cutting fabric, and the small pair on the left are for embroidery and crochet. I have about 12 pairs of scissors all together – all dedicated to various aspects of craft. Woe betide anyone that misuses a pair of my scissors 😉

Post for National Crochet Month


It’s difficult to fit in blogging at the moment. Lots of hospital and medical appointments – so I’m a little behind with the prompts for National Crochet Month.

March 5th brings us to ‘Hooks’. I don’t have many, but I do have more than those featured in this picture.


These are the ones I use most frequently. I have others in similar sizes – but they don’t seem to ‘work’ so well! Do you have a favourite hook?

Favourite Piece

The next prompt for National Crochet Month is to show a favourite piece. I have to say that my favourite piece is always the one on which I’m working – or the one that is playing around in my head as the next one to start!


So this must be my current favourite!

The colours are at the request of the client, and I have to say that I was disappointed when ‘pink and blue’ were mentioned. However, with a bit of tweaking I’m really pleased with the way it is progressing. I particularly enjoy the planning of the next sequence. The rows don’t just appear in a random way, a fair bit of thinking occurs all the way through


Sometimes they need a little tweak during the process, but my samples give me a good idea of how the next few rows will look.

Another post for National Crochet Month!

If you missed yesterday’s post, which was published late, you can find it here


There’s nothing quite like writing a draft post……. and then forgetting to publish it! So here’s yesterday’s post – today’s will follow shortly!

You may have noticed some green in my stash, yesterday. Most is left over from this blanket

I also used just a touch of green here

This morning I was contemplating colour and was inspired by these

Just a hint of green.

Once again posting for National Crochet Month
