Monday Monday…

Plans….so good to me πŸ™‚ Hello and a very happy Monday to you! So, it’s been pretty quiet around here lately. In fact I think I just saw a tumbleweed roll past. But hey,Β  it’s time to roll back the covers, blow off the dust, etc. etc.

*Side note* It’s cold today, not cold cold, but still, cold, brrrrr. Continue reading

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!


On the Hook!

Howdy doody peeps, a very happy Wednesday to one and all πŸ™‚ It’s coming you know….Halloween…(I said Halloween in a scary voice, just so you know!) So this week I have been working on some cute crochet decorations to spook up your holiday this year πŸ™‚

Any guesses as to what it might be? Answers on a postcard please to… ah who am I kidding, it’s fairly obvious that it’s a pumpkin! I am fairly happy with the overall shape, but I now have to face my arch nemesisembroidery … dun dun dunnnnnnnn 😦 I don’t know why, but I always seem to find adding facial pieces to any amigurumi pieces the most difficult part and it’s usually where I mess up 😦 But where there’s a will and all that. So I will focus, I will take my time and I will adorn my crochet pumpkin with facial features, gosh darn it!Β  Who’s with me? O yeah, nobody because I haven’t published the pattern yet, d’oh.

Happy crocheting! See you next time!


Working Wednesday!

Howdy, and a very happy Wednesday to one and all. How’s your month going?! September is officially here and it’s got a bit of a buzz about it, don’t you think? I think, now, don’t quote me on this, but I think that I am almost finished the project I have been working on the past couple of weeks πŸ™‚ Can I get a “heck ya!”?…..thank you πŸ™‚


So it’s looking good, which is good πŸ™‚ Once the making stage is done, then it will be onto the photographing stage and the pattern typing and formatting stages, so lots of stages to look forward to! What are you working on at the moment? Do feel free to show me you W.I.P’s, I’d love to see them. You can find all my social media details here, or simply leave a comment below πŸ™‚

Happy crocheting! See you next time!

Foxy Friday!

Hello! Happy Friday to you all! Are you looking forward to your weekend? This week I have spent some time working on one of two projects I am currently developing at the moment; FoxGloves πŸ™‚ A fingerless crochet glove, with a fox motif and it. Hopefully as time progress’s my naming skills will improve! The nature of this project requires working with tapestry crochet, a process which I am not mad about, but when done properly can produce some pretty nifty designs. Continue reading

Autumn Cleaning!

Hello!Β  Happy Monday, how was your weekend? Yesterday I spent my Sunday giving my bedroom a thorough cleaning. I keep wanting to say “Spring Cleaning” but that would imply that I am either really early or really late, so I have decided to stick with “Autumn Cleaning” for now! Same concept either way!Feet

I love this time of year, and yesterday Continue reading

Being Open!

Hello! Happy Friday to you πŸ™‚ This week I have been working on an idea that I had last weekend; my very first shawl / poncho / wrap design! (I haven’t finalised the details yet) My initial design has lead me to learning and pretty much falling in love with a new area of crochet….Open Work! Maybe it’s because of my construction background, but I love the grid format of open work. Throw in a design and I love it even more! Continue reading

Being Inspired!

Hello! Happy Friday to you πŸ™‚ How was your week? Today I would like to write a little about “Inspiration” πŸ™‚ I am not sure why, maybe because I have been trying to deny my artistic tendencies for so long, but the topic of inspiration is one that I have never stopped to appreciate. *slap on the wrist for me* Until today! Today I had one of those light bulb moments, you probably saw the Continue reading
