Christmas on the Cover

If you had told me 12 months ago that I would end 2012 with my crochet designs featured on the cover of two best selling magazines  I would never have believed you. But here we are with the new issues of Craftseller magazine and Inside Crochet on the supermarket shelves, each featuring my work on their covers. In Craftseller, you can find a very pretty little heart pattern, ideal for wall hangings and Inside Crochet features some very easy Christmas decorations, ideal for beginners (bookmark them for next year!).

Without the encouragement of my friends, readers of this blog (in particular Anne, who told me to “go for it”) and my family this would not have happened. So, thank you to all of you and in particular to the editors of two fabulous magazine who have been great to work with.

This has been an exciting year, the teen has just finished her first term at University, I have qualified as a children’s yoga instructor and Mr T has patiently endured my cooking experiments!

I hope that your year has been as rewarding as mine and that 2013 sees your dreams come true.

Remember, life is what you make it, so start planning now.

Happy Making.

Tracey x

    Its so inspiring to see your creations adorning the shelves…I often feel like saying proudly to bystanders ‘my friend designed that!’
    Hope 2013 is as successful, if not more so Tracey…it will be exciting with your new venture! Keep reaching for the stars! xx Ali

  2. Congratulations Tracey – all well deserved as your designs are really lovely. I hope to get back to more magazine commissions once the hat book is finished (if I ever finish it!!!). Fingers crossed for another good year for us all. Good luck for more front cover projects xx Lynne xx

  • Of all my Mother in Law's knitted decorations this fairy is my favourite!
#knittersofinstagram #knitting #knitmas #handmadechristmas #makingchristmas More from Mother in Law's knitivity - Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus - this always reminds me of school nativity plays, where the girl playing the angel always manages to be centre stage!!!
#knitivity #knittednativity #knitmas #knittersofinstagram Happy knitmas! My Mother in Law has unpacked her knitted decorations, here are the three kings, part of the nativity scene which grows every year and now fills the window ledge!
#knittersofinstagram #knitmas #knitting #handmadechristmas #knittednativity Throwback to last December's family outing to Chester Zoo lanterns, a beautiful night. Ah, we knew how to Christmas in the 1960's. Missing my lovely Mum today - and love that we're both wearing outfits she made (crimplene, whatever happened to you???)
