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!

Big sigh!

So hard to keep up with anything other than work and all the extras:end of course reports,exams and correction.  At least I do have work so I really should not winge!!!

I have finally managed to finish a shawl for me!!!
If you read my ME ME post around about Easter that shawl I made was also for me but it got sent to my sister in Lincolnshire ...why....well I am sure you know how these things happen sometimes !! :-)

This one is definitely for me!!

Spring-summery colours


just right for early morning starts when it is still chilly

and can be draped over the back of a chair in class when not needed.

My own pattern ....pretty straight forward with tassels.    Nº 4.00 hook and Katia Baby Merino Fingering yarn. I also added a row here and there of a white Red Heart yarn which had a touch of sparkle. I don't know the name of that yarn just some leftovers.   

It's nice and light perfect for spring.

Keep well

Amanda :-)


  1. Well done my friend, you deserve to make lots of wonderful things for yourself.

  2. Good job on your blankety shawl! It will make your chair pretty when you're not using it over your shoulders. Good for you! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  3. Your shawl is beautiful. I'm so glad you've made something you love. Your shawl is gorgeous.

  4. It's lovely Amanda, I'm so pleased you managed to make something for yourself at last. :) xx

  5. Perfect. Love the edging.

  6. Always nice to make something for yourself, love the colour combination and the tassels.

  7. Cheers for another lovely finish, Amanda! Merino is so soft, I can imagine you enjoying being hugged in it for warmth and some encouragement as you work your way through your busy days. I just did a bit of knitting and crocheting while camping in the forest for the last ten days. A friend gave me two little round crocheted face scrubbers with a homemade soap and I love using them, so I made. some little round crocheted scrubbers with some cotton leftover yarn. Wishing you happy days with some creative yarn crafting breaks! xx

  8. Very lovely. Just what a busy teacher needs to feel loved! I hope the end of the summer term is not too hectic for you.

  9. You create the most beautiful crochet pieces! Love the colors in this one--reflects the area around you, XOXO


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.
