Its The Weekend!!

Got a busy couple of days this weekend. The social calender is full. My lovely friend of http://thedartmoorsoapco.co.uk is trialing a bathbomb and body scrub making workshop and myself and a few ladies are the guinea pigs. Really looking forward to it as I have never made anything like these before. We even get to take our work home, so if they turn out ok I will post some pics.

I bought some gorgeous alpaca yarn a while back and am thinking summer shawls, just having difficulty in finding the right pattern. After trawling the internet for hours, I found a great pattern in one of my books!!! So much for modern technology. I also have a rough pattern in my head that I hope can be translated into a finished product. I really need to get cracking, my first craft fair is not until Easter but it soon comes around and its also starting to get busy with the gardening so no time to waste!

As you know, I help out at Sew Vintage, a lovely gift shop where you can also have any clothing alterations done by the talented Liz. She also makes wedding dresses and I am hoping to start making wedding accessories in crochet, such as necklaces, corsages and maybe even bouquets.

After a horribly wet Friday (we even cancelled work), it is turning out to be a lovely sunny day. Spring is just around the corner and it will soon be Easter. I have made some egg cosies and heres a pic, cute little hats! I haven’t got an egg cup so had to improvise!

Have a lovely weekend 🙂
