Merry Christmas

Just a quick post from me to wish everyone a very happy Christmas and a very exciting new year. May we have the courage to go after our dreams in 2018!

I am very exited that the new year will find me growing my business and teaching people the crafts that I love so much, with my first crochet class in Ewell starting in January and many more to come.

Wishing my readers and students a lovely and relaxed Christmas and the gift of time with loved ones!

Crochet Basics class

I am very happy to announce a new class that I will be teaching in the new year. Crochet Basics at All Things Nice in Ewell Village.
We will learn how to make four basic granny squares and a simple method of joining the squares together. They can be used to make a cushion cover. However if you continue making more, they would be lovely joined together as a blanket.
The class includes two colour yarns to make the squares and the use of crochet hooks and other materials in the class.
The cost is £60 for the five classes and materials.
Please feel free to message me on to book your space or ask any questions. Thank you

Hello stranger!

It has been long... so long that I can't even remembered the last time I wrote a blog post... but I am back, here, still crafting in all that free time a running around two year old gives me, right?

It has been a long road, with some ups and downs. I have a son that keeps me busy, tired and full of love, noise and laughter. We moved a few times around still, but finally settled in the lovely village of Ewell, near Epsom, just outside of London, but with enough countryside around to escape to.

On the crafting side, I have been doing lots of crochet, baskets mainly, so much I even recently had to stop for a few weeks due to a wrist injury... imagine my osteopath's expression when I told him that I hurt my wrist from making a basket with a hook too tight and jute that was too rough! I have also done a Jacobean Crewelwork course at the RSN and have found my love of all things crewel, and I am working on some yarn embroidery patterns, too.

For some of my old followers, I hope it is a nice surprise to get the update about my blog and the fact that I am back launching patterns, classes, and tutorials very soon.

You can still find me on my facebook page here, Instagram @natidenniffjones and find my patterns in my Craftsy shop here.

A baby rattle

This is such a lovely project to make, it is crochet, it is sweet and it makes a lovely gift. This one I made for my friend's baby Guadalupe to enjoy.

You can find the pattern from Pica-Pau for free here but unfortunately it is only in Spanish. If you wish to give it a go with Google translate, bear in mind that mp means single crochet. Enjoy...

Liberty love

I cannot resist going by some Liberty fabric without it automatically jumping in my shopping basket. So a few weeks back while browsing the remnants section in the local haberdashery in Windsor I came across some cuts of this awesome Liberty Tana Lawn... And the three pieces just had to come home with me... This is what I made so far with it... Other two exactly the same will be on their way soon.

The cushion is a simple one with an invisible zip in the back (easy and quick). Quilted on the front and back (I just quilted along rectangular piece and added the zip joining the short sides. So not even the quilting distracts your eye from the lovely fabric, I just quilted it around the design to highlight it shapes, it is uneven and a bit messy but looks just right... Liberty fabric always does.

I also did a little shopping trip to Liberty recently and used my birthday gift card, to buy, yet more amazing fabric... hoping to get sewing and showing it soon!
