Keep up to date with all my news…..

Delve into the life of the Secret Crocheter! Have a little read of my blog to hear all about the other things I get up to when I’m not crocheting (to be fair these are usually crochet related!) and all the wonderful people I meet on the way.

One Year On….

One Year On….

Well, I’m not ashamed to admit that I’ve failed miserably at writing one blog post a month this year!  My last one was February....this is an epic FAIL!  In my defence, I have been a little busy, and I do struggle a bit with writing a blog; I mean, who wants...

My Local Patch

My Local Patch

I think I've mentioned somewhere before that when I'm not crocheting, you'll find me sat in the conservatory with a cuppa, probably with a biscuit or 3, watching the birds in the garden.  Since I've stopped teaching full time, one of my aims has been to get...

Living the dream

Living the dream

Home is where the heart is...and I love my home!  I enjoy sitting in the conservatory with a cuppa, and my hook, watching the birds feeding outside and enjoying the seasons, whichever one that might be.  When I was teaching in school full time, free time...

A change is as good as a rest!

A change is as good as a rest!

Well, it would seem that I've been a bit slack with keeping my blog up to date; I knew I hadn't written anything for a while but I didn't think it was 9 months ago!  Time certainly does fly.  Perhaps I should explain a bit about what's been going on......

Crafty Resolutions

Crafty Resolutions

As I'm sat here pondering my own new year's resolutions (to be fair, they're the same as last year: eat less chocolate, exercise more), I'm wondering how many people will have ones where they want to learn a new craft or skill.  People have their own reasons for...

Mustard is the new black!

Mustard is the new black!

A lot of my crochet students want advice on following patterns and so I thought the easiest thing to do would be to write my own - at least that way I know that they work and that they are suitable for beginners.  My latest one is for a simple headband pattern, which...

A Yarny Treat

A Yarny Treat

It's been half term this week for me which means lots of things.  Firstly, a chance to catch up on lots of school work and plan some fun activities for the term ahead (Term 2 is my absolute favourite as it's the lead up to Christmas!)  Secondly, half term...

Poppies for Remembrance

Poppies for Remembrance

It's less than a month away until Remembrance Day so I've been busy crocheting poppies.  I've been experimenting with 2 different types this year; the traditional poppy and then something a little different.  I'd love to know which one you prefer?!

The Mad Hatter!

The Mad Hatter!

Now that the weather has changed and those warm summer days are a distant memory, it seemed only right that I add a new wintery workshop to my list!  In this new workshop, you'll learn how to make a simple beanie / bobble hat using some lovely, super chunky yarn...
