Flowers, bags and blanket

Hello

Weather Report

It is a fine start to the morning, we are supposed to have showers though later in the day.

Free Pattern

I thought today that I would share with you a new pattern that I designed when we bought the Caron Cake yarns for the shop, they are lovely balls of Aran weight yarn in lovely colours available on Wool to your door.

Days off

I am having a couple of days off, not from crochet just designing, I have been working on some more of the Art of Crochet squares. These squares are small and quick to make. I have about another 20 to do to catch up with the issues that have been delivered to Louise.

This is just a short blog today because I am going to the hairdressers, that really does take ages and then I am busy for the rest of the day.

Last Fridays workshop

We had another lovely day last Friday continuing with works in progress and working on some patterns from my new Flower Frenzy 3 design it will be available soon in the shop.

Last years CAL pattern is not going to be available for free any more it has been out for over a year and is now available as a PDF download on Ali Crafts Designs or as a printed pattern from Wool to your door. This design took many months to make and many hours typing up and testing.

I don’t know how so many people are able to give away their designs for free, perhaps they also have a full time job. This is my only job and I am sorry to have to charge for designs, but in order to buy a stands at shows and stock loads of yarn I need to sell the designs as well. I hate being made to feel a miser because I sell patterns. I really do try to keep the costs down but how many people do you know that will work for ¬£0.00 an hour….. This is also the same when you try to sell made items, people think that because you enjoy making something you will do it for free…..

So sorry rant over I have got it out of my system now…..:-)

Next Crochet workshop will be on Friday 1st September from 10am till 3pm

please email me if you want any more details

I hope you are all having a lovely day. Enjoy the pattern.
