  1. New resolution of 2016: do not neglect blog! Write up lots of patterns! So to start things off, here's my first free pattern of 2016. This is the first thing I've made and kept for myself in YEARS - I love it :-) I asked people what I should call something like this and the suggestions were not helpful: a thingummy. A thingamajig. A thingy. So, a thingy it is.
  2. These were inspired by a lovely little owl made by Anna (Apak). You can make them as keychains or use them as Christmas decorations. Pattern can be downloaded HERE!
  3. Here we go! Pattern available for download here
  4. Gorgeous! Really cute! I'd been working on something similar, but abandoned it ... now I see yours, I feel inspired (and Christmassy!) again :-)
  5. This is my new pattern, the Margaret Square (-> 'Daisy' was a nickname for girls called Margaret, but I thought this was a bit more demure than Daisy, so it became a Margaret square instead.) Pattern will follow tomorrow
  6. Skatters - I used a German yarn brand called Bravo Schachenmayr. I'm working on the pattern at the minute and I'll include yarn colour suggestions for RHSS, so North American users can make something similar or look at the yarn chart online as a guide for picking out their own yarn. But thank you for your compliment, I'm very glad you like it!
  7. Thanks Wendy. Could you please PM me your email address?
  8. Thread Title: OPEN: Stars & Flowers afghan Pattern Information Pattern Description: You will be required to make THREE motifs Pattern Style (written, symbol chart, etc.): written, with photos Pattern Photo (optional): Skill Level: intermediate Yarn/Material/Tools Required (specify which will supplied by designer and which by tester): yarn scraps in five different colours, preferably WW yarn Tester Information Number of Testers Needed: 2. Approximate Time Required to Complete Project: One week (by 29th July) - earlier would be appreciated Deadline: 29-7-2013 Tester Experience: I would prefer testers who have tested before and know the ropes! Tester Responsibilities: This project has already been tested by three other great crocheters, their changes have been noted and added. Now I need a couple of pairs of 'fresh eyes' to work through the pattern again and make sure there are no oddities. I need people with eagle eyes, methodical crocheters - careful testing to make sure my stitch counts are right :-) Any Special Software Requirements: PDF reader Compensation Please specify what compensation you are offering to pattern testers: A copy of the final pattern and a copy of one of my other paid patterns.
  9. Very beautiful - looks lovely with your pillows!
  10. Fnished - just need a border!
  11. Can't post photos - so... in pastels here in stained glass effect here
  12. Okay, self praise is no praise, this I know. But I am really loving this pattern and I can't wait to finish writing it up and make it available for sale. This is the same pattern as the two afghans in the next post, the only difference is a different colour palette and one stitch difference. I'd previously made a 'Flowers' afghan, so this one was made to show the 'Stars'. And for some reason, I thought of the American flag (different types of stars, I know!) and thought this might look quite spiffy in red, white and blue. I hope you like it, too! As soon as the weather gets better and brighter, I'll post clearer photos.
