It’s been lovely having a little time off from the blog to concentrate on my boys and the day job, and I’m back feeling refreshed and with a few new tricks up my sleeve! I’ll be posting more of the quirky, colourful designs you’ve come to know from me, I’ve also started a YouTube channel that you can find here. I’ll be adding tutorial videos, mostly crochet, from help for beginners to more advanced stitch and project ideas.

I’m also planning to do a few craft fairs, selling some of my favourite yarn projects as well as patterns and kits. I’ll keep you posted about dates and locations as soon as they have been confirmed.

To get myself into the swing of things, here is my first LGL tutorial video, showing how to create a simple, and simply beautiful, 4 petal crochet flower. I hope you enjoy the video…
