A Crochet Success Story

The nicest thing about teaching is when you see a beginner come back with their first finished project. It’s fair to say M struggled to pick up the crochet basics and we spent a lot of time after her initial learn to crochet class (taught by the fabulous Sarah Hazell) getting this crochet cushion off the hook!

M is deservedly proud of her first cushion cover and I’m delighted she has immediately bought yarn for her next project. You could say she’s well and truly “hooked”.  My work, as they say is done.

Happy making to M and all of you who are new to the art of crochet!

  1. Hi Tracy
    I am just getting into crochet I can hold the hook and do simple stitches and have just done some granny squares but I would love to be able to go onto the next level and learn some new stitches and follow patterns. I wondered if I could book in with you for some tuition.

    That’s a beautiful cushion Tracey – you friend must be proud (and you too). Some people pick crochet up really easily and some have to work a bit harder at it, but in the end, the hard work pays off, with the production of a fab finished project. Keep up the good work, we’ll have the world hooked on crochet before we know it …….. Lynne

In a world where you can be anything, be kind, when all you have to offer is time, give it freely and without expecting anything in return.  Remember that compassion is the answer, always and forever. 
Three weeks ago I lost one of my best friends, but I have found solace in these 2 beautiful girls, now women, making their way in the world and knowing that they learned these lessons from the example set by their mothers.
I'm so sorry to everyone who is expecting a reply to an email, a letter or a facebook message. I am doing as much as I can, when I can, but I know I've fallen short of my usual efficiency!!!
