Well last week just seems to be a blur now! Family life revolved round a lot of time spent at A&E, but that is a whole other story!!!!  Knitting and Stitching show was fabulous, very busy which was brilliant  for all involved.  The fabulous Jane Crowfoot had a stand and was featuring her new book which is called The Ultimate Crochet Bible a must have purchase for all crocheters, check out her blog too.  I was mainly stood on the Future Stand crocheting, but my scarf drew a bit of attention which was great and very flattering.
On Monday I made my way up to Derbyshire, I had been asked by my mother to teach some crochet at her WI's 1st craft morning.  Having never been to one of my mums WI's meetings I didn't know what to expect, it was really good though and I was very proud of my mum (she is her morning WI's president). Mum ran the meeting and was really efficient and organised.  I met some lovely ladies and taught some to crochet from scratch, many could or had dabbled with crochet so I chatted with them about different techniques and was asked lots of questions, luckily I had done a recommended reading list with books, magazines and also websites with lots of information, which went down very well along with 3 simple crochet patterns, all in all I think it was a very successful morning and I was delighted to receive a lovely potted rose as a thank you.
Met my gorgeous great niece for the first time last night she is such a sweetie had a lovely cuddle and am busy making lots of nice crochet pieces for her.  Its the end of the week and I am coming down with a cold, typical! I have got so much to do this weekend.  Well better dose myself up and drink plenty of Vitamin C ...until next time, Nicky x


  1. Sounds as if you have been very busy, but how lovely to help your mum out like this and I bet she was well proud of you.
    Thank you for your sweet words earlier, my course is going ok, they reckon 5 hours a week is what one should do, If I do that I never finish the first Module this side of christmas. I did 24hrs. last week and only half way through's fun though!
    Take care xx
