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!

  • Ssh! Totally top secret - don't tell @alpacaly or @temporary_measure what I'm making with their super smooshy Alpaca yarn (& totally shameless product placement of my new hook and scissors from @beyond_measure_uk  which are a joy to use!

#spelt #permaculture #bakingandmaking Thanks to @textilegarden I found the perfect gift for my best friend at Woolfest, like a tiny acorn our friendship has grown into big oak tree. Years of nurture has given us strong roots. Happy 40 years of frienship Ali xxx I really think poppy seed heads are far more beautiful than the poppies! A break from Woolfest photos today. 
#girlgardener #seeds #gardenersofig #mygardenrightnow Years ago, a guy I followed on twitter wrote an ebook, I reviewed it on my blog and  it became my "go to" Friday night curry book. Now he has a "real life" cook book, published. Congratulations Dan @thecurryguy it's a triumph, sorry I can't be at the New Bookshop to have my copy signed xxxx

Lovely stranger: Yeah, sure ♥
Always love seeing people wear their makes at Woolfest (ps if you know this lovely lady, let me know) @jeaniebags I think she is friend of yours?
