Aren't the colours in this photograph beautiful? When I was searching for pictures of Hellebore flowers a few weeks ago, this image popped up on my screen and I was immediately smitten by those gorgeous, dusky pinks and purples. I... Continue reading

This week has gone by sooooo fast that I can scarcely believe that tomorrow's Friday. Friday???? How can it be Friday when it feels like Monday was only yesterday? I've been busy, so maybe that explains the whizzing days, and... Continue reading

It's exactly two years since I first walked up the winding wooden stairs of the cosy little café that had recently opened at the bottom of town. I remember it as if it were yesterday, that feeling of bubbling excitement... Continue reading

8 am on Sunday, J and I wrapped up in multiple woolly layers and ventured out into the freezing cold clarity of the early morning. It was quiet, still, bright, icy cold. Actually, I remember now, it wasn't quiet at... Continue reading

Every so often I find that some weeks stretch and lengthen to such an extent that even trying to remember things from a few days ago seems impossible, let alone trying to reach back into last month. I uploaded these... Continue reading

When I was pondering over what sort of creature would be nestling at the bottom of my Winter wreath, my very first idea was to make it a robin. Here in the UK, this little bird (the European Robin) is... Continue reading

Unlike many British homes who had a magical fall of snow just after Christmas, the white stuff completely missed us in December. Not so this week - we have had flakes! Not a lot it has to be said, but... Continue reading

Hello! I thought it would be nice to share a colourful bit of crochet with you today, something bright and cheerful and a just a teensy bit unnecessary. I mean, I'm fairly sure there is no real pressing need for... Continue reading

http://craft.buysubscriptions.com/Back-Issues-oxid/Simply-Crochet-Back-Issues/ This is the correct link for paper copy back issue x Sent from Windows Mail From:Typepad Sent:‎Friday‎, ‎2‎ ‎January‎ ‎2015 ‎11‎:‎13 To:Lucy Attic24 A new comment from “Pauline” was received on the post “Cowl-neck Poncho :: ta-dah!” of the blog “Attic24”. Comment: Can anyone help me get the pattern please? A friend went to UK and thought she had bought for me but was the wrong issue, I ordered it online and they sent issue 26 not 25 a cross about that so £15 later I still dont have the pattern. A photodo and emailed version would suit me fine and I can work from my iPad.
