In the midst of all this greyness out came something to make us smile, not just the yellow ball in the sky that has been making brief appearances over the past few days but Lucy's very well kept secret of a new festival to take place here in Yorkshire in September. To read all about it pop on over to her blog, I'm sure it will be a very popular event so I've booked my room! Will you be going? I'm already counting the months, weeks and days.
If you have been reading my blog for a while then you will know that Lucy's Attic24 blog was the very first blog I found whilst searching the web to find links to learn to crochet. It is still a favourite place to visit when I need an uplifting happy, colourful place.
My latest project has been some of her Rose Heart Hangers, very quick to make.
This one is decorating a Happy Hanger, made from a Dottie Angel pattern.
The second is designed by Fi of Marmalade Rose, have you seen her felt wall hangings? What an artist!
You can find links to the pattern on Lucy's blog post "Rose Heart Hanger". I made mine mainly in Stylecraft Special DK and stuffed them with beautiful English Lavender.
Coathanger covers were some of the very first items I made when I learned to crochet, followed by wrist warmers (another Lucy pattern) and I've made a few more pairs this Christmas
including some for Annie as part of my Giveaway, you can see those on her New Year post together with this Christmas decoration I made for her.
Something else has been busy creating here, wonder if she's booked her place as a spinner at Yarndale?
Hope you have a lovely crafty weekend. I think I'm going to make more hearts.
p.s. and finally a big grrrrrr to Blogger who lost this post once, typically I hadn't been "scooping" it on to a document so had to start all over again.
