Thank you to everyone for your gifts, flowers, cards, phone calls & messages… I had a lovely day & will never be this young again. Feeling very blessed….
A huge ‘Thank you’ to everyone who supported me throughout 2020.
2020, what a shocker! My hope is that everyone fared well through lockdowns & isolation. I know this isn’t the case for many & my sincere condolences go to you if you’ve lost family & friends in this pandemic.
2021 is just around the corner & not a moment too soon. It’s going to be Awesome! Nothing else will do after the frightful year we’ve had. Stay well, stay safe & be happy. We have so much to be grateful for.
Wishing you all a Very Merry Christmas & every happiness for the new year… cheers Renate
Life, as we knew it, has changed for most of us; social distancing, lockdowns & travel restrictions, to name just a few, have placed limits on what we can & can’t do. Here in Qld, Covid-19 hasn’t impacted our health as it has in other states, so we are luckier than most being able to live somewhat normally.
Nevertheless, I for one only go out when I need to, leaving more unnecessary shopping for another time (which hopefully will be sooner rather than later)… Scrap Yarn Crochet has become my go to consolation.
The Stained Glass Diamond Motif scarp yarn rug (afghan) has proven to be a popular pattern & I thank everyone who has purchased & taken the time to email lovely comments.
I’m guessing there are lots of you who want to reduce that ever-growing yarn stash & what better time than in this turbulent year.
With that in mind, I’ve come up with another 2 scrap yarn crochet projects. Both are suitable for novices & interesting enough for the more experienced. Both are available in my Online shop
The first, ‘4 Leaf Clover Motif Rug (Afghan),’ is the easiest of the 2 & the one I’d recommend to beginners before trying the others.
The second, ‘The Lattice Emblem Motif Rug (afghan)’, is also easy to make, taking a little more concentration but not so much that it becomes a chore.
I hope these new scrap yarn patterns bring a little creative joy & distraction in these unpredictable times.
A huge, & I mean HUGE, thank to my family, friends (both personal & Facebook), crochet class ladies, team & group members who took the time to place a vote for me in the Alice Springs Beanie Festival On-line exhibition. I was pipped at the post in the eleventh hour; but that’s how it goes sometimes. Nevertheless, it was quite a ride & I appreciate everyone’s efforts…
Congratulations to Joan Price for her winning piece ‘Autumn is Awesome’
& congratulations to Megan Jack for never giving up
So, that’s it for another year… Let’s look forward to what 2021 brings.
Hi everyone, a huge thank you to everyone who has voted in the Alice Springs On-line exhibition. It all ends tomorrow so there is still time to cast your vote, it’s close, so every vote counts.
Here’s a little bit of background for my entry ‘A Pygmy Possum, Wombat & flame Robin enjoying the Alpine Spring‘
The piece depicts the Flora & Fauna of the Australian Alpine region. As best I could, I tried replicating this landscape with crochet & felting (both wet & needle).
