As usual its far too long between blog posts and I'm have far to much to write about so I may split this into a couple of post.
First big new my little sister had her second little boy on Easter Sunday. He is absolutely beautiful.
I missed out on going to harrogate flower show this spring but instead I went to the Good food show. It was great but very, very busy, there were crowds of people everywhere and getting anywhere near stalls took ages. The main reason it was so busy was that the headline celebrity chief for the day was Mary Berry.
I also managed to catch a glimpse of Dave from the Hairy bikers, Brian Turner and the guy who won last season great British break off. I got to try lots of different cheeses, meats and some wonderful artisan gins. I came home with a bottle of sole gin, a massive white chocolate - raspberry cupcake and very sore feet.
It was lovely to have a proper day off and spend time with my family.
In work news I have been working on my amigurumi hair tutorial and have two new patterns that are now available in my esty shop.
In magazine news I have two patterns in this months inside crochet magazine
I love you to Inside crochet magazine. Even before I started working for them I was an avid reader and got some many good hints. They have so many beautiful original patterns very month its truly inspiring for any crocheter.
More magazines - my Scottie dog that I made for Craftseller magazine are in a brand new crochet magazine all about knitted and crocheted toys. More about that later as I can't find any photos from the mag just the one I tok before I posted them off.
I don't have my copy of the magazine yet its not in the shops till Friday so I'll tell you more about how this odd underwater family came together in my next post.
I'll leave it there for now as I want to relax with a glass of wine and catch up with all the other lovely craft blogs over at handmade Monday
