Holiday Crochet

Hello crafters,

It’s a very short post today as I’ve not been as crafty on this trip as I would have hoped! Though I’ve taken lots of pics for inspiration later.


I know I said I was going to focus on my embroidery but I just couldn’t resist the pull of the crochet hook (especially one as comfy as the Tulip hook) so I popped into one of those big general stores and picked up some gorgeous crochet cotton – it’s so soft and I just love the pastel colours. I then made some crochet flowers whilst sitting on the balcony with a plate of olives and a big glass of ice cold water – bliss! I'm going to make a crochet flower garland when I have more to add (pictures to follow when it’s finished!) I love garlands for jazzing up the flat when we have friends over and these summery flowers would be perfect for a BBQ we have planned in a couple of weeks.

My embroidery effort (or lack of) has made me realise I need a little help with my embroidery skills, so I’m now on the hunt for a class (I know Charlie is keen so I’m sure I can rope her into joining me). Any recommendations for the London area would be gratefully received!

    • Thank you! I’m really excited about it, I can’t wait to see how it turns out. I’ve loved my holiday though sadly I’m now packing my bags for the journey home. At least I’ll have my crochet on the plane to cheer me up! 🙂
