August

August was a month for finishing off big projects. I finished both the bed runner and the mermaid tail. I have only crocheted this month; sewing and knitting have taken a back seat to my crochet work.

I have been starting to think about new items for my shop and for craft fairs, and these coasters fit into that category. I love the style and colours. These can be purchased here

This hat and snood set are also new additions to the shop. Both this set, and the coasters, are made using Ice Yarns Magic DK yarn. This set is made using the v-stitch, and looks great! You can buy it here.

This is my first attempt at a greeting card. I wanted to make something special for one of the workers at Thomas’ nursery who was leaving, and this is what I produced:

This here is a preemie set. It is so small. This is a gift for a friend, who knows someone whose baby was born at 32 weeks. That’s so little! We are wishing that little baby well.

I have set up an Etsy listing here, if you want a preemie set made. These will be express orders and posted within 3 days of ordering.

So here is the mermaid tail:

I am so proud of this! The final size is 3 foot long, so perfect for curling up in. It is made using Stylecraft Special DK yarn in Candyfloss and Bright Pink. If you would like to order a custom mermaid tail blanket, you can do so here.

And here is the bed runner!

This was a fun make, but also huge! I am so pleased with how it turned out. If you would like a bed runner to match your room, find out more here!

September is a busy month for orders. I’m looking forward to showing you what I make!
