Ooh Look, New Issue of Inside Crochet!

The latest issue of Inside Crochet will be hitting the shelves of your local news agents any day now and yet again you can find one of my simple designs featured on the cover! This month I’ve got a super easy pattern for cosy footstools for you. Mr T declared them the perfect thing to rest his feet on in front of the tv and I had quite a job to persuade him to give them up so I could post them off to the editor. I may have to make a set for him!

There are some fabulous patterns in this issue, do check it out and if you haven’t done so already, drop by the Inside Crochet blog and sign up for their newsletter which promises to be full of news and some great competitions this year. If you look closely, you’ll see a sneaky peek of my favourite design so far, coming up in the next issue. How lucky am I to end the year like this?

I know how lucky I am to be able to turn my passion into a business. I’m a firm believer that life is what you make it, and I’ve had an amazing year in which to create my own crafty reality. We might not be the wealthiest family or have the biggest, best of everything, but we have food on the table, love in our hearts and friendships you can’t put a price on. I can’t rally ask for much more in 2013  … but maybe … a warm, sunny spring to spend in the greenhouse wouldn’t be too much to ask for?

  1. Wow, well done again! Thoroughly well-deserved success. To keep coming up with design after design, AND sample after sample – so satisfying and simply splendid!


  2. Happy New Year I hope you are as successful in 2013. I am still reaping the benefits of your crochet tutorial day – just can’t stop hooking, many thanks again


  3. Happy New Year! I hope 2013 brings more success for your design work and wonderful crochet creations. I’m already looking forward to Woolfest (although my knitting was sadly neglected last year when I was doing so much sewing for Anne’s shop).

  4. Hi Tracey – I’ve been reading through my copy of Inside Crochet today and couldn’t wait to order some red Paloma yarn (and a chunky new 8mm hook) to make the floor cushion – it looks fabulous on the page, let’s hope my real-life version comes close! Sarah @ hometoroostblog.wordpress.com


  5. Looking forward to seeing lots more of your fab designs on the shelves and on here Tracey! Also some sunny snaps of your garden crops!
    All the best for a very fruitful and satisfying year ahead!

#girlgardener #ediblegarden #naturelover #nofilter When you're enjoying a quiet mug of tea & the sound of geese becomes deafening! Seeing far more fly over the house this year (& occassionally landing in the field, calling to each other then taking off and regrouping as if they have practised for years!! Lots of red admirals in the garden today
#naturelover #redadmiral #butterfly #embracingautumn #girlgardener #wildgarden Sunday loaf. I've always baked bread -  not very successfully - but earlier this year I treated myself to a workshop with Andy, who runs the Coffee Kitchen bakery in Cockermouth. He taught us that bread making can be slow &  gentle, that bread is a living food & that inspired me to keep learning & keep experimenting. This is a 100% spelt sourdough fresh from the oven. Mr T is desperate for it to cool down so he can have a slice, thickly spread with butter! Thanks @thecoffkitchen for all your patience & advice.

Trying to restore my mojo with a walk in the forest, where it's so wet that even the squirrels look miserable! Normally I stop here to drink coffee from my flask, but it's onwards & upwards, then home for dry clothes & hot chocolate!
