Crafty in the Med

I'm here to enjoy meeting other crafters and to share my ideas and projects. I love to crochet,cross stitch and embroidery but I'm keen to try new crafts too. I love music and I love to sing! Singing makes me happy. I collect jugs....its their shape I think! I am addicted to yarn and buttons. I get lost in book shops and can spend all morning there and I absolutely adore rummaging in flea markets. I love to read sci´fi/fantasy,buried treasure, and off world adventures. I have a passion for history! I would be the first passenger on the first time machine ! I BELIEVE IN MAGIC!

Well received ...sigh!!!


IT WAS BIG!



I made a shawl for my daughter for Christmas. I wanted a large shawl so she could wrap it around herself when she is at the computer in the school reception. It is a very drafty area.
As I mentioned I did want it large but after blocking it was really big .


I was a little bit worried about that but  she loved it so that's a relief!

I used Katia planet yarn and NÂș 7 hook. It is a free Red Heart pattern. The Top-Down Shawl.



























enjoy your holidays!!

I love to receive your comments and I read all of them. Unfortunately real life does get in the way sometimes, so as much as I would like to I cannot always reply to every comment, however I do my very best to keep in touch.
