Cute and cosy crochet

Hi guys, 

It’s not really the weather for hats at the moment but as I have a brand new niece I thought I’d expand my crochet knowledge and make a cute hat for her along with an appliquĂ© flower! 

  

The patterns I followed were:

Stitch n ting simple crochet baby hat

Bella coco easy crochet flower video

I used grey yarn from the WI range at hobbycraft which is beautiful and soft to work with, the pink was from some oddments I was given so not sure which brand. 

Both tutorials were super easy to follow and I’m pleased with how the hat turned out, can’t wait to see what it looks like on little one 💕

Squishy yarnie goodness! 

I haven’t been crocheting for very long, in fact I started to teach myself at the beginning of March using a set of hooks and a pack of small balls of yarn from eBay.

I’ve now become addicted and am always on the lookout for new patterns and yarns.

I’ve recently discovered stylecraft special DK yarns and I love the stuff, it is super soft, easy to work with, really affordable and comes in a fab array of beautiful colours!

After building up quite a stash, I’ve made some pretty yarn pegs so I can play with various colour combinations.

I’m looking forward to increasing my yarn stash and more of these lovely pegs!

Happy Mail

I’m totally loving all things planner, quirky and stationary at the moment, and as I had recently bought myself a second planner, I naturally NEEDED some pretty things to fill it with!

My favourite place to buy my planner supplies is Little Noah’s Ark on Etsy, this shop stocks some super cute stationary and she hand makes beautiful custom dividers to match your planner colour scheme.

So my latest purchase arrived today and when I opened up the outer envelope I was greeted with this package of loveliness……

Inside there are two individually wrapped packages, one containing my custom dividers and the other packed full of cute stationary.

Here are the dividers opened up, I absolutely love the colours, you can’t really see on the picture but they are made with beautiful papers, Including some lovely and glittery paper! I can’t wait to get them set up in my planner.

The second package was full of cupcake washi tape, cute stickers, sheepy page markers, a cute pen, cat post it notes and funky paperclips – A great selection of goodies 😍

This is now my 4th order from Little Noah’s Ark and its safe to say I’m super impressed with every order I receive!

Craft Haul!

I managed to get a nice early finish from work yesterday (Yay!!) so while I was waiting on the Hubster to pick me up I decided to do a spot of shopping for stationary goodies!

Not a massive haul this time, but I managed to score this fab set of Stabilo pens from WH Smiths – Currently on offer for ÂŁ7.99 (rrp ÂŁ19.99) there are such pretty colours in there 🙂

I also had a rummage in TK Maxx and came away with this paper bundle by Docrafts Papermania in neon geometric pattern, it is a HUGE bundle of alphabet stickers, vellum, patterned papers, journal cards and various other super pretty die cuts – this was a bargain at ÂŁ7.99 (rrp ÂŁ12.95)

I’ll keep you posted on how I use these goodies in the near future.

Webster’s pages colour crush planner in sky blue, this is my newbie and will be used to track my crafty projects and craft supplies.

Filofax Finsbury in raspberry, this is my everyday planner, I carry this one everywhere and it holds all the info I need to know what I need to do each day

I will show you the setups of each of the planners in another post.

New Planner Love!

Well hello there,

Welcome to my blog and my first post.

To get me started i’d like to share the new planner I had delivered today, I’m becoming a bit of a planner addict at the moment and this is my third now (I already have 2 filofaxes!)

This particular planner will be set up as a craft tracker, I will be using the planner to keep tabs on current projects, supplies I am using and where I bought them from, notes and instructions on how to do things and possible future projects and inspiration.

Anyway, here it is, my new Webster’s pages colour crush planner in blue, its so pretty 🙂

I haven’t quite decided on how I will set it all up yet but once I have it set up I will share with you.
