In one respect its been quite a quiet week here. I haven't had any pressing crochet work on and have been able to have a relax and enjoy the calm before the storm.
That said I have a lot to share. You may know I have a day job at Duttons for Buttons a haberdashers in York. I don't talk about my crochet to customers much I'm trying to sell haberdashery after all but a week last friday a couple came in with the latest Craftseller magazine wanted toy eyes to make the mermaid on the cover. I was putting stock away and not really paying attention as the couple were being served by my colleague she pointed at me and said "oh Liz over there designed that pattern". I'm not sure who was more shocked - me who hadn't seen the latest Craftseller yet and was trying to polity ask if I could have a look at her magazine or the lovely lady who was now face to face with the person who had designed the mermaid pattern for which she bought the magazine.
We had a lovely chat and I was able to get her the correct toy eyes as I myself had bought them from Duttons. She asked me to sign her magazine which was a first and I had no idea what to write but I hope I didn't let her down. I guess I met my first fan.
Next up Love Crochet magazine came out at the back end of last week. I knew I had the cover project but I didn't get my copy till this monday.
I spotted this on a facebook crochet group I follow.
