New Published Patterns

INSIDE-CROCHET_NO-52It’s always a thrill when new issues of my favourite magazines are delivered, and it’s even nicer to see my work photographed beautifully.

As you can see, the hugely talented Britt Spring has again worked her magic on my latest design, a simple Tunisian crochet cushion.

Quite by chance, the colours I chose for this design exactly match our newly decorated bedroom at home, so this now has pride of place.

Tunisian Crochet is a very simple technique, and the knit stitch used in this cushion looks just like knitting. The Inside Crochet team have written a piece about the technique on their blog this month, highlighting some of their favourite designs from recent issues.

Also in issue 52 you can find one of my designs from the newly published book “Crochet” from Dorling Kindersley. On a visit to Cockermouth this week, I saw the book featured as part of a rather cute window display (the sun was shining so brightly  it’s not the best photo ever. )The New  Bookshop always has lovely displays, which really tempt you inside and the recent addition of a friendly coffee shop makes it an essential stop on our visits home.

This issue also has a lovely article by Emma Varnam, in which she shows you a few simple ways to use floral motifs this summer. Ideal for bringing new life to last year’s cardigan or for making cute hairclips.

After a week in Cockermouth, we’re home now and busy catching up. I’ll be back soon with a few more finished objects and some sneaky peeks at designs in progress.

Whatever you’re making right now, I’d love to see photos, you can share by tagging @traceytodhunter  on twitter or instagram or post pictures to my facebook page. If you’re a “Raveller” you can also find the project details for the Tunisian Cushion here.

#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!
