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.

Handmade Cards

Handmade Cards

This week I have mostly been making cards!  I know I'm slightly biased but I love these crochet cards.  I hope that they are the kind of card that people will want to keep, and they can be personalised really easily too.  All these cards are available to buy from my...

Fifty Shades of Grey

Fifty Shades of Grey

It can be a bit daunting when someone asks you to make something for them, especially if it's not a family member or a really close friend.  There's actually quite a lot of pressure involved!  A  lady asked me to make her a chain scarf using lots of different shades...

Who’s for a smoothie?!

Who’s for a smoothie?!

I don't know about you, but sometimes my best ideas come during the middle of night when I wake up and can't get back to sleep again!  And that's what happened with my new crochet kits. I'm absolutely in love with these - they are perfect for a gift and look fab too...

My latest commission – The Tea House Wrap

My latest commission – The Tea House Wrap

So, a good friend of mine asked me to crochet her a tea house wrap.  She'd seen a picture of it on Facebook and immediately fell in love with it.  Quite a lot of pressure I hear you say!   I found the pattern for it from Two of Wands and set about crocheting it.  I...

It’s the small things…

It’s the small things…

Now the summer holidays are well and truly upon us, I thought I might share with you how I like to spend my free time.  It will be no surprise to some of you that I LOVE to crochet, and what goes well with some crochet I hear you ask?   A pot of tea and some...

Trying my hand at macrame

Trying my hand at macrame

I love trying out new things and thought I'd have a go at some macrame.  I used some leftover t-shirt yarn and bought a cheap pot.   The base is made up of a simple crocheted circle and then you build up the sides with a series of chain loops.  What do you think of...

New pattern coming soon!

New pattern coming soon!

So, I've finally found a bit of time away from writing school reports to write down the pattern for my Lucky Stripe Bag!  This pattern is suitable for a very confident beginner / intermediate  as there's a few different stitches in this one.  Back to the reports for...

Summer love

Summer love

This year, I'm all about getting as much colour into the garden as possible.  I'm not the best gardener and if something flowers, it's more by luck than judgement so I decided to crochet myself some colourful seat cushions for outside.   I used some really bright...

My Etsy shop is open!

My Etsy shop is open!

Eeeek!  I've finally taken the plunge and opened my Etsy shop.  I'm quite nervous about the whole thing but the Husband has said that if I don't start selling some of the things that I have made, then we'll need to move house as we're running out of room!   Please...

Homemade gifts are the best!

Homemade gifts are the best!

I'm not sure about you, but my Mum can be tricky to buy presents for. This year I decided to crochet her one of my summer scarves using King Cole Opium Palette in 'Mint Julep' which is a pinky grey mix. The great thing about these summer scarves is that they work up...
