First Attempt Crochet Bag

I don't know about you but I'm a pattern hoarder. If I get an idea in my head I spend some time researching the best pattern, yarn or method of how to make it. As I've mentioned before I usually look to the internet as my main source and before I know it I have 20 tabs opened all with patterns to be downloaded or purchased. I then either print them and squirrel them away if I'm not going to make it that evening, or store them in iBooks on my iPad.

Crochet New Year 2016

Happy New Year to everyone! I hope you all had a lovely time over the festive season. Can you believe we are in 2016 already?! With a new year comes new goals whether that be personally through fitness and keeping healthy, to work and of course, crochet. I always start the year with good intentions of eating healthy and trying to do more exercise but by the last week of January its all usually out the window. Crochet goals however are slightly different; I like to challenge myself creatively and learn something new or try something different.
