Workshops, Blankets and Weather

Hello AgainI can't believe that it is Tuesday already, January is halfway through hopefully with some better days to come.

Weather report It is a lot brighter start this morning and although the dreaded word SNOW has been mentioned we don't have any yet....

The last few days have been wet dismal and dark, it really helps me to get on with the jobs when it is sunny.

The ironing is done, the washing is in and now I have time for work.

Crochet update I am crocheting at the moment but unfortunately I can't share it with everyone, we have a commission and we are both very excited about it, it is Louise's design and my instructions and the wool just arrived yesterday. So I was up quite late and made some progress.

Crochet Workshops I have many workshops listed on this site  Ali Crafts Designs and had one yesterday. I had a super day and lots of progress was made on Sorrento blanket.

Please look at the Workshop section if you are interested
