Hi everyone it seems such a long time since I've posted. Before I went on holiday life was hectic and even though I had so many things to tell you somehow time just escaped me. I have been loving my crochet workshops and crafternoon teas but they take up an awful lot of time. I hadn't really factored in all the preparation that was required and how much time I would spend baking up tasty treats. I decided that I needed a unique selling point and that was going to be cake but I have to say that is easier said than done, especially if you want to serve everything freshly made. But even though at times I have been exhausted I have found something I really love doing. My heart swells with pride when I see all the lovely crochet creations that my newbie crocheters are making. Just this week one of my very first left handed students who had trouble picking up the stitches sent me a photo of an amazing blanket, another student sent me a photo of an Amigurumi unicorn and another an image of some fab owl bunting. Seeing new crocheters progress so rapidly is such a rewarding experience.
Now that I am home I have decided to pace myself more and I'm having a break
over the summer from crafternoon teas. I am concentrating on my crochet workshops,
already the beginners June and July sessions are full and I am being asked to
put on extra one off workshops in addition to my Heart and Mandala ones.
Crochet has become very hip all of a sudden.
Before I forget to tell you my holiday was lovely. I went away with my
friend Barbara and we stayed in a beautiful Hotel in Playa Blanca which is in
Lanzarote. It was very quiet where we stayed with lovely coastal walks to the
Marina. We spent a few lovely sunny mornings walking along the coast and then pottering
around a little craft market full of wonderful creations using local lava stone
and crystals. I have to confess I didn't take yarn or hooks I just rested and
read lots of very easy novels, nothing to tax my tired brain.
I will try and post more frequently but the way things are looking time at
my computer could be limited, I have dipped into a few of your wonderful blogs
but I am so very far behind. Please forgive me if I don't respond to your
comments or don't come to visit you as often as usual it's nothing personal
just a question of time. I love hearing from you and catching up with your
stories so hopefully this will only be a temporary blip and everything will
soon be back to normal.
