Crochet

I have really noticed the come back of crochet lately.
Or maybe it just something that stands out when I look at a layout or a card.

I have even taken up trying to crochet myself!
Every Thursday morning a very talented  (and VERY patient) lady comes to the Sheoak Craft Cottage and teaches crochet.
Not only am I learning a new craft, but also providing entertainment for my family as I sit there with my tongue poking out, fingers sticking out awkwardly, which in turn creates cramps (how on EARTH can this be good for people suffering arthritis???) and then the inevitable happens... I pull it all out and start again lol.

But I will perservere!! It hasn't beat me....yet :-p

What I am really excited about is using crochet not only to create flowers, but also as trimming or edging on layouts....
Here is a fantastic tutorial by Lollychops (one of my favourite sites for inspiration!)




Can't crochet but still love those crochet flowers?
Here is a tutorial by Danielle Flanders (such a clever lady) on how to make these faux crochet flowers...
(I will be trying these today!)






Thanks for stopping by!
