1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Wool-eater blanket on: March 20, 2010 08:10:56 AM
I got this pattern from Sarah London's wonderful crochet blog. She has a free tutorial for it. I started making it about 9 months ago and was excited that I could manage something which looked so complicated as I am relatively new to crochet. I just finished it this week and have already given it away to a great friend who just celebrated her 50th birthday! She was delighted.
It is really soft and heavy and also reversible, as both sides of the pattern are equally charming.
To view more photos, read more about how I put the blocks together or get a link to the tutorial visit my blog

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / can I get my crochet hook out to crochet on a plane to the US? on: November 20, 2009 02:25:39 AM
I am travelling from Edinburgh, Scotland to New York tomorrow (for the first time - very excited!!) and would like to crochet during the long flight but am worried that crochet hook will be taken away as weapon. I have travelled with a crochet hook in my hand luggage lot's of times on domestic UK flights (without ever getting bag searched) but haven't tried getting the hook out to crochet yet (flights too short to need to!) Any advice would be very welcome! Thanks

Hello I'm an Edinburgh person, new to Crafster. I quilt and crochet and would love to meet more like minded people!
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Rememberance day poppy corsage on: November 08, 2009 06:00:16 AM
I have been playing around with crochet corsages recently, making them up as I go along. I plan to make a big bunch for Christmas presents. I thought it would be nice to make a poppy one for rememberance day. Don't know whether this is just a UK thing but it is traditional to wear artificial poppies fpr Rememberance Sunday (today) and armistace day on 11/11. I have to remember to give some money to one of the collecting boxes where they sell paper poppies as making my own means I have missed out on a donation which is the main point!

Your post nearly had me in tears! I think maybe you are happy when you are quilting because you are creating something, maybe your body wants you to create a child, but will let you be as long as you are 'creating'. I hope that's not too personal!
I love your beautiful hand quilting, so many quilts these days are machine quilted, it's so nice to see the real thing. I love hand quilting and finished my own Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt earlier this year after about 7 years of picking it up and putting it down. It is on my bed now and gives me such pleasure everday. If you'd like to take a look go to my blog and click on the Flickr badge and look in my 'quilt' group! Sorry that so convoluted but I'm new to Crafster and don't have many photos on here yet!

This is stunning! A proper patchwork quilt with everything thrown into it. I'm sure you will always treasure it.
