This started as a “can you translate the pattern” project although I’m pretty sure the lady who asked would have worked it out the tricky bit by herself in time.
Had a fabulous time with my daughter yesterday at the Langside Community Heritage Day at Finn’s Place.
This may seem an unusual day to be blogging about on a craft site, but on 5 May this year they would like knitted, crocheted or crafted midwives.
I will be taking part in support of the University of West Scotland Midwifery team, and if you are in the southside of Glasgow the Wool Haven is acting as a collection point.

I’ll update my efforts here 🙂
The only downside to crafting and blogging is it is so easy to get caught up with the crafting that you forget to blog about it – or as in my case have about 5 blogposts/projects almost but not quite finished.
It’s been a busy couple of weeks, 2 new crochet classes started at the Wool Haven and then a day out at the Hobbycrafts Show at the SECC which provided a lot of inspiration and a few projects.
Something I’ve thought about trying is crocheting with wire & beads, I’ve seen it on YouTube and in books, but never got round to doing it.
Now I’ve seen it I am definitely going to give it a go – although it may be a while before I can do the butterflies. 🙂
The event also hosted both the Scottish Quilting Show & the Stitching & Sewing Show. I can sew on a button, do alterations and complete basic projects but quilting has never been my thing; you have to be so precise and my level of competency does not match my expectations. Yes things get thrown in frustration. So it’s been a subject area I’ve avoided.
All I can say is wow. I knew things had progressed way beyond simple squares but the standard of work there was breathtaking.
Have to say I enjoyed myself there and felt I did quite well only coming home with stuff for 3 or 4 projects to try out – more of which soon.
Spent a fantastic afternoon with a friend working on a craft project, but before we started the main project she showed me how to make these mini wreaths.
