I had a lovely influx of Big and Little Crochet books recently, receiving a free revised copy of book 4 (due to the pattern error in the original), my free book which was number 5 and my scheduled copies numbers 6 and 7. I also received more rose and slate yarn to work on more projects and a new colour was introduced with book 7, a kind of teal shade called Petrol. It's a gorgeous colour.

On top of all this I received a free gift of a little plastic container with all of the tools you need to crochet (besides hooks and...

Just thought I'd write a round up of what's been going on in my paper crafting world this past 7 days.

I was on a mission to try out new fold designs in the card making aspect of my journey into trying new crafts and it was perhaps more successful than I'd imagined it would be in that for one it was so much easier than I thought it might be and secondly it was so well received with lots of people liking the creations.

This garland/bunting could be used to decorate a room or office, to hang out in the garden or each heart used as an applique for any other project, crocheted or otherwise.

Great for Valentine's Day which is fa...

This recent make is a perfect example.  A pair of cute little crocheted newborn booties in a hand made box and set up for a really enjoyable photo shoot.

You may have seen versions of these crocodile stitch booties around on Pinterest but I could not find a pattern so I went ahead and made it up as I went along. I'm pretty sure that once you are familiar with making baby shoes and booties and you've learned to recognise...

I think I've shared a version of this lovely bunting with  you before but here's another one for you. Sometimes it's nice to expand on what you see as product descriptions in our store with a blog post. It gives our customer more information and lets other crafters in on how we did it so they can give it a go too maybe.

So this one is gorgeous and comes as a standard set of 4 x 3 inch cards which are backed with strong kraft card for strength and durability and then topped with a slightly smaller white card. The edges o...
