Seaham is in County Durham in the North East of England, 340 miles away from where we live so it’s a… Continue reading Searching for Sea Glass in Seaham… (and a little crochet too of course)

Crocheting around Seaglass…

Following my pebbles covered in crochet and finally getting a copy of ‘The Sea Issue’ of the ‘Scheepjes Yarn’ magazine from last year, I have now moved onto crocheting around seaglass! There’s a gorgeous article in this ‘Scheepjes’ magazine about ‘beach souvenirs’ and crocheting around treasures found on the beach such as stones, shells and seaglass.… Continue reading Crocheting around Seaglass…

A Crocheted Campfire!

Well this was a crochet project that I didn’t expect to find on my hooks!

A Special Crochet Round-up…

At the end of every month over on Instagram, many people (including myself) post a collage with a selection of that month’s photos and in my case that month’s makes. I really love doing this; looking back over the month’s projects and progress. Instagram is the place where I post photos of my crochet that I wouldn’t necessarily write a blog post about. But I… Continue reading A Special Crochet Round-up…
