Happy New Year!

New Year

Happy New Year! How’s it going for you so far?

So any plans? Goals? Resolutions? Ambitions? History has seen me makingΒ  lists of resolutions, only to either a) forget them or b) feel really bad about none of them working or c) all of the above 😦 But not this yearΒ  πŸ™‚ This year I have decided to try something a little different and instead just make 5 goals. Within those 5 I have tried to include things that are reasonably achievable and some that are maybe a little more adventurous πŸ™‚ Goals and I haveΒ  never been the best of friends in the past, but I figure the New Year is a great time to make new friends, right?

So let’s do this 2016, let’s be friends πŸ™‚

So whether you make pages of resolutions or just decide to continue being awesome, I wish you all the very best for the coming year πŸ™‚ Have at it πŸ™‚

Happy crocheting! See you next time!

What Not To Say When Opening Handmade Gifts | Top Crochet Pattern Blog

Hello and Happy Monday to you πŸ™‚ Christmas is fast approaching, so today I have brought you courtesy of a survival guide if you will, for receiving handmade gifts this festive season πŸ™‚

The big day has arrived, everyone’s settled round the Christmas tree and you’ve just handed cousin Marie a beautiful package containing a precious handmade blanket that you’ve spent months planning and preparing. She opens it slowly and pulls it out of the wrapping. Now, the moment that every crafter dreads…what will her reaction be? Below you’ll find the top 5 things that you should NEVER say after opening a handmade gift. Ever experienced any of these awful misdemeanours? You have our deepest sympathy, and we whole-heartedly recommend you restrict your giving of beautiful handmade items to people you know will truly appreciate it!

Color Vision!

Here’s a fun little quiz for a Monday afternoon πŸ™‚ How do you score?!


Linked Treble Crochet Tutorial

Hello! And Happy Monday to you πŸ™‚ So, do you like treble crochet? Do you like how quickly it works up and the structure it gives to a piece? Me too πŸ™‚ But you know what I don’t like about treble crochet? (double crochet if you’re in the U.S) The gaps! Oh gosh the gaps! It really takes away from a piece sometimes and makes it look so unprofessional.

But never fear for today I have the answer to our problems πŸ™‚ The answer comes via Deja Detmir from the wonderful Crochet Ever After. Deja has such a brilliant range of tutorials, but I was especially excited to find this one, because, well, as discussed previously…. the gaps! Oh gosh the gaps πŸ™‚

So take a look and prepare to banish those treble crochet gaps forever! Thank you Deja πŸ™‚


It’s here!

Two posts in one day….Heather have you gone mad?! No. No I haven’t dear reader, but I am however with news, news that I just really wanted to share with as many people as possible πŸ™‚

I’m on Etsy πŸ™‚ At the moment pattern downloads are only available, however with time I will be adding finished crochet pieces, and of course lot’s more magical Moon of Arann creatures for you to make!!! Huzzhah! It’s time to feel good! Happy weekend!
