my yarn creations

Lately I have been knitting and trying to crochet. I say trying to crochet - I am a dab hand at granny squares but have never mastered doing anything other than the granny square but now I am trying to follow patterns and creat other patterns - ok still square shapes but what other shapes are there for sample swatches??? I am have decided to gradually work my way through the book 200 crochet blocks for blankets, throws and afghans by Jan eaton. I am starting with the easiest squares donated with 1 crochet hook and working my way up to the more difficult

Square 2 - tiny textures

Circles in a square - a free download from Raverly

Neither of the above have been blocked

another cupcake class

I went on another cupcake decorating class today and it was brilliant - my results weren't but I am pleased with what I did achieve! There is a fab company in the Milton Keynes area called Mum's who bake who do some fantastic classes and todays was to decorate cupcakes to make them look like flower heads

more cakes

oh no!!!!

I didnt realise quite how long it has been since I posted on here - Im sure no one reads this but if you have stumbled across me then I am sorry!

I have been making jewellery, knitting and doing some crochet (tho I am not too good at that!!!) I dont really have any photos of my makes other than my cupcakes I made earlier this year on a course then some at home! I am working hard at finishing a throw in granny squares I have been making on and off (more off) for years but it means sweing ends in and sewing together of 225 4inch squares - I will post a pic once I have finished it!

so for now enjoy my cupcakes....well looking at them anyway!
