crochet for children - out now!

So, it is finally out! My new book teaching children to crochet, Crochet for Children is aimed at kids, but hopefully the patterns are cute and interesting enough to appeal to their parents and grandparents too, so all the family will enjoy using this book. I love it, and hope you do too! Here are some pictures from the book, let me know what you think!

I am going through a very exciting period of my life at the moment, which I plan to blog about more very soon, but in the meantime, I apologise for lack of presence here and leave you some pretty pictures of some fabric I have bought for a very important new arrival, which may see me sewing (or doing hardly any crafts at all...) rather than knitting for a while....
the top lot come from a rather gorgeous little shop in Canterbury and I had a ball choosing which fabrics I thought would look fabulous with some I had already bought. It took hours!
These (above) are Japanese cottons from the absolutely fabulous Eternal Maker in Chichester and the ones below are from the now sadly closed Sally Bourne in Crouch End. Can't wait to show you what the finished article is like!

...more soon!
