Pattern Testing Winter Whispers Hat and Cowl Crochet Pattern for Kerry Jayne Designs

Hello,

Today I have something a little different to share with you all 🙂 as I had the pleasure of testing a beautiful new crochet design by Kerry Jayne Designs. For those of you that know me, you know that I love her patterns a lot and they are often my go to patterns for hats especially when I often take part in the yearly Christmas Shoebox Appeal for charity. So I was delighted when I was asked recently if I could do some pattern testing for her, of course I said yes 🙂 and this is what I have been up to these past few weeks.

Pattern Testing Bubbles the Baby Giraffe for Melissa’s Crochet Patterns

Hello All,

I am sorry this post is a little later than I hoped but life has been pretty difficult lately, anyway I am not here to talk about that so let’s talk pattern testing :-). I was asked by Melissa’s Crochet Patterns if I would like to test her new pattern called Bubbles The Baby Giraffe and I jumped at it as it was an adorable pattern that I knew would look amazing in cotton. This is my first time pattern testing for her and I was excited!

July’s Amigurumi Character for #amigurumicharityrun

Just thought I’d say a quick hello (update)

Hi there,

It’s been a while since I have done an update and I have been meaning to do one for a while so here I am. This will just be a short post today as I’m not having a good day and I still need to get another post up (the poll for August’s Amigurumi character) so I need to make sure I have enough energy left.

I’ll start with some happy news I received a few weeks ago, I got an email from the founder of Feedspot to tell me that my blog had been selected by their panelist as one of the top 5o Amigurumi blogs on the web. This was a lovely surprise and of course I had to check out the link they gave me to check it out. It was lovely to see a lot of other designers and bloggers that I love part of it as well and to think I was part of it as well, well that made my day. They gave me a badge to display on my website so I have added it to my sidebar, so do check it out if you like 🙂 and if you click on the badge it takes you to The Top 50 Amigurumi Blogs where I am sure you’ll find many you want to follow as I know I do!

January’s Raffle for #amigurumicharityrun – WIN Princess Leia

Firstly we are really sorry we are starting this raffle later than we planned, we have had a few bad days with illness and we are trying to catch up now. Please know that future raffles will run as advertised, this is a one off (it’s easier to run them in the future as we’ll have done it before and can use the same set up).

Now let’s get started with this raffle and what you need to do to have a chance to win the Amigurumi Character Princess Leia, that I have been running with throughout January. Continue reading
