How are you all doing? Well I hope! I designed this pattern when several hospitals put out appeals on social media. They have asked crafters to make pair of small flat hearts for the patients they are currently looking after.
The idea is that one heart stays with the patient and one stays with their family. It allow them to feel close to each other at a time when visiting is not allowed due to social distancing measures.
If you want to make hearts for your local hospital, please only do so if they have specifically asked for them. Not all hospitals are accepting the hearts and this is due to their individual policies.
How have you been. Are you climbing the walls yet? Are you looking ahead at a long weekend of quarantine?
To keep you entertained for a short while I have created some digital colouring sheets. There are five in total, which can be downloaded for free. Just click the link below to download the pages. Then print them out and colour them in!
If you decide to colour in any of the patterns please take some pictures and share them with us on social media!
It can’t have escaped your attention that the world is in an unprecidented state of crisis.
Many more people are staying in their homes than ever before and while we all enjoy a bit of quiet time to reflect and relax, for some of us the length of time we are staying in our homes can be very wearing.
I will do my best to create as much free and entertaining content as possible for you to stop you climbing the walls.
You thought I had forgotten didn’t you? It’s ok, I forgive you. It’s been soooooo long since I bought, unboxed, made, reviewed and published a new tail and fins for the Aldi So Crafty crochet shark kit.
This is a first for me. I have never made my own cutting files before!
Right Now the Settlers of the Nene Valley are planning a huge celebration of our local heritage (more on that at a later date!). Anyway, as part of this celebration I have been planning a few activities with some of the other Settlers, including designing a coat of arms.
Some of you will remember the review and unboxing videos of the Aldi So Crafty crochet shark kit. Those of you who have read the review will remember that I was not particularly impressed with the pattern. Not only was it poorly written, it was also incomplete!
Some of you may remember the review I wrote on Lion Brand’s Shawl in a Ball. If you missed it you can read it here.
I used my Shawl in a Ball on holiday and made this very simple shawl:
I have had a few requests for the pattern, so I have written it up for you. There are instructions on how to add clusters if you wish to, as well as how to make a tassel. You do not have to put the clusters, it is entirely up to you.
Well, I finally did it! The first of the South Africa themed paper crafting kits is here! This kit is all about the animals of the bush. There are lions, hyena, elephants, leopards and even rhino for you to print out and craft with. As always you are welcome to sell what you make, but please don’t sell the printouts! I hope you have a lot of fun crafting with these beautiful animals.
