A Tunisan Afternoon

So earlier this week I met up with a group of friends to learn a new skill, Tunisian Crochet. It’s something I wanted to learn but for some reason I kept putting it off so when the chance came up to hang out with friends and learn while sipping homemade Sangria I couldn’t pass it up.Here are my observations, it’s not as hard to learn as I suspected, It’s easy to frogg ( rip out) , I did a lot of that , and the resulting fabric is dense and sturdy (great for bags). All in all I’m enjoying it and if you haven’t tried it you should. As always you should “Go Ahead; Adorn Yourself”

The Big Finish!

I don’t know about you but the closer I get to the end of a project the more excited I get . I have to admit that I get a little obsessive about. It’s like an unveiling , I can’t wait to see the item pre-blocking and then it’s as if the item can’t dry fast enough ! How do you feel as you get closer to completing a project ?

I Confess

I am hooked on hooking! No ; not that kind! I mean Crochet the lovely relaxing art of looping yarn to create beautiful wearables, home accessories , you name it! It all began when I was about 12 years old, my Mother taught me and there was a woman who lived about 4 doors down named Ynez Metheny  who created truly amazing Afghans. At first I dove right in and managed to complete a hat…I think. Anyway like all “tweens” I wanted to be cool and hip and somewhere along the line I decided that Crochet was neither cool nor hip. Fast forward many years ( no I’m not going to tell you how many) and a very ,very dear friend partnered into a yarn shop. Of course she had ever yarn imaginable and in short order I had picked up a hook and was off. That was about 5 years ago, now if I’m at home and I’m still , there’s a hook in my hand (and usually a glass of wine in the other). Come and join me as I post photos of works in progress,and talk about anything else Crochet related (or sometimes not Crochet related). If you want to see my work come visit me at:
