The Gallery: I Made This!

I have a been a busy bee this week and its only Wednesday! Actually these two things I made yesterday.

In the morning I made Ice Cream Cupcakes for the key workers at my daughters pre-school. We saw them about 6 weeks ago on Channels 4's Sunday Brunch and gave them a go. I have now seen them everywhere and this time used Jo Wheatley's recipe in the Sainbsury's magazine. Both work really well.

The second thing I made yesterday and what I am most proud of is this.....

I know it doesn't look like much but its a square of double stitch crochet and the first thing I have ever crocheted. I have been trying to learn for years and its never clicked until I joined Crochet Camp. I hope to get better and them make lots of wonderful things.

What have you made recently?

What Happens at Crochet Camp Stays at Crochet Camp

Ok so that's not strictly true and you know I am going to blog about it! 

I have wanted to learn how to crochet for years, I have tried to teach myself several times but I just can't do it.

Today I learnt of Crochet Camp which is being hosted my Kat at Slugs on a Refrigerator. Kat is a Crochet guru and has even written her very own book so if she can't teach me no one can.

We shall be making 4 items over 4 weeks and as I have no crochet stuff at all have bought the whole kit from Kats etsy shop. However if you already crochet and want to join in Kat has  a list of what you will need and you can get it yourself.

Camp starts on the 15th July and I can't wait!!

Pretty Things: Toucan Purse from Peacocks

I had been after a little coin purse for a while as my purse is really big and won't fit into any of my smaller bags.

I found this in Peacocks for £3! It holds a decent amount of change and fits perfectly in my bags
