What's in my wish list?

I read a lot of crafty blogs and magazines, and I crave a lot of things I see around... So I thought to share the things in my wish list at the moment. There's no affiliated links on this post but just a bunch of items that I really like, some I may buy, and some will stay for ever in my list... that happens too!

This gorgeous Morris & Co. cup for my take away coffees (and the ones I make at home too). I am a huge fan of Morris & Co, and their William Morris inspired fabrics... It is a no brainer really, fabrics inspired in Jacobean crewelwork are my two biggest things put together... So as a result there's Morris & Co, all around my house, and why not in my coffee mug too.

Some pretty gardening scissors, these are sold on all garden centres and online too, but I love them and I can't have enough scissors in my life... 
Vogue Stitchionary, this is a great source of ideas and my go to place for inspiration in a project, but I love their books... It is not the same than looking online. I have the cables book but I am missing the other 5, and they are not easy to come by, but I will own them all some day! In the meantime you can find all of the patterns and explanations in the books, here.

And some pretty rose gold hooks. The ones pictures are Milward's. Again these are widely available in stores and online and pretty inexpensive. I will probably add them to my basket with some rose gold scissors to match too.

And finally this book, Crochet to calm. I picked it up from the library, and I will be ordering it soon, because it is filled with great projects, easy going to relax and make something pretty at the same time. Loving the blanket and the slippers... so you may see some of this book's projects in my hooks very soon!

Well, that's all from me at the moment, but would love to hear what's on your wish list?

Crochet: Let's get started

As we have started my first set of classes in Ewell Village, I have realised how important it is to get the basics of crochet right, and how frustrating it can be when you want to start a project but your starting knot or your first chain has gone a bit wrong...

So I have decided to start a little weekly set of videos called Crochet: Let's get started. You can find them in the video section of my Facebook page or directly in my YouTube video channel.

I would love it if you would follow one, or both. I will also be uploading a direct link to all my video tutorials, in the tutorial section of the page.

Hope you enjoy them and Let's get started!

Crochet Basics class

I am very happy to announce a new class that I will be teaching in the new year. Crochet Basics at All Things Nice in Ewell Village.
We will learn how to make four basic granny squares and a simple method of joining the squares together. They can be used to make a cushion cover. However if you continue making more, they would be lovely joined together as a blanket.
The class includes two colour yarns to make the squares and the use of crochet hooks and other materials in the class.
The cost is £60 for the five classes and materials.
Please feel free to message me on to book your space or ask any questions. Thank you
