Flowery Scarf

I thought I'd post a more recent project as the previous bags were done quite a while ago.

So here is my flowery scarf. I finished it a few weeks ago and am quite proud of it. I know it's very girly but that's the way I felt when I crocheted it :)

My First Post!

Well, it's finally here!  After much deliberation, I have finally decided to start a Blog.  I suppose it will consist mostly of my crochet projects but I also hope to overcome my fear of the sewing machine over the next few months so we will see what else comes out of that.

Okay, let me tell you a bit about myself and why I have decided to 'Blog'. 

I have loved crochet since I first discovered it sometime between the age of 12-14.  I'd tried knitting and eventually managed to be an 'ok' knitter but crochet just seemed to be so much more interesting. Anyway I got myself a book and that was it - I was hooked (pardon the pun) 

I sold my first bit of crochet a few months after I first began and have sold a few pieces now and then when I felt like it (anything ranging from a tunic to a bag or a scarf) but never really tried to do it seriously. I am now a 30 - something mum of three and am enjoying the crochet more than ever!

I will be adding some of my current projects on here over the next few weeks but I'll start with a few pictures of a few bags that I crocheted a few years ago 

I'd love to know what you think

I'll be back with some recent and current projects very soon :)
