HELLO...remember me?

Sorry for neglecting you all for the last couple of weeks, especially after l started a new blog with the promise of lots of lovely new ideas
But I am back in blogland and with lots of tit bits to share again 

The reason l went quite for a while is that l was approached by a publisher to write a crochet book...I was just so excited but terrified at the same time

We all had a meeting yesterday just outside Brighton, I met the team I will be working with and it all went really well. We drove down yesterday had the meeting and stayed in one of their flats over night drove back today after having a peek at Brighton

The flat was wonderful and the team were really lovely and made me feel very welcome and at ease,
so it looks like I have a new crochet book to write....
Now l know the brief I can share some of what I have been working on through January
Hope you will all be as pleased as l am, it is a dream come true for me, something l have always said l would do one day...seems like that day has arrived
Wish me luck, I'll need it....a huge challenge for me

For now how about a few stripes..2 rows of sc in a variety of colours
rainbow of wavy stripes 
lots of blue stripes

greens and reds
 and some tweedy ones too..
Don't you just love stripes?

plus a few triangles

and the mesh stitch scarf it coming along great too and a hat appeared 
to go with the collar both patterns on their way soon

Magic is believing in yourself. If you can do that, you can make anything happen.
