Having spent the best part of the morning installing Jetpack, setting up sharing and generally losing my way around my own website, I think I may have finally had a EUREKA moment.

If that really is the case, this blog post should automatically appear on my G+ business page.
Furthermore, I’m only a click away from posting it to Twitter and Facebook at the same time….okay, one bridge at a time, eh ;)

I love it when I’m browsing the web and spot one of my patterns in use.

How adorable do these little ones look in my crochet tutu tube dress

Something a bit different for the January CAL (as we’ve been a tad busy over Christmas)

The free pattern this month is for a tiny little crochet heart just begging to be made into something wonderful. What that something wonderful is, is totally up to you!

Ideas for uses (from simple to adventurous) might include a necklace, a headband, a potholder, a cushion or a blanket.

Come and share your ideas and join the fun at dc2tog

Adding a crochet ruffle frill trim is not as scary as it looks.  It has so many uses – skirt, dress, frilly hems, borders and edgings or (for the really brave) as a fluffy blanket photo prop.

Better still, it’s the perfect way to get rid of all that ruffle yarn you bought to make scarves with but got bored of so quickly!!!

Contrasting colours used for clarity not cosmetic appearance ;)
