Lets start with January
January saw my set of humanoid amigurumi cats on the cover of Craftseller magazine
February was a bit of a big month. I had my first commission project for Love crochet magazine and got the lovely surprise of it being the cover project.
Two projects for February Craftseller magazine, this very sweet daffodil brooch
and a piggy cup warmer.
I had a photo of my omnipoms shown on the telly on Sunday brunch.
Craftseller this month was one of my favourate things to make this very retro but pretty cushion
Inside crochet published my Lucy bunny pattern and my simple crochet ball earring. (Lots more crochet jewelry coming this year so stay tuned)
I became an Aunty again when we welcomed little Hector into the world this month. I can't believe how small he is in this pic hes huge now and crawling all over the place :)
I released two new patterns into my etsy pattern shop my blossom fairy and my bride doll. I am slightly ashamed that this was the last of the new patterns I had time to do for my own shop for the rest of the year, my brides groom is still legless at the bottom of my work bag waiting to get put together. I'll be putting lots of work into my etsy shop this year and there will be lots and lots of new patterns and my bride will have her groom very soon.
Finally this month my Scottie dog pattern I'd done for Craftseller magazine last year was repuplished in this months Love crochet magazine.
May was my take over of the crochet section of most newagents not only was my lovely mermaid on the cover of Craftseller magazine..
I had my hedgehog pattern republished in this handmade toys magazine.
I had one of my most popular patterns of Eric the elephant on the cover of Love crochet
along with his pals Archie and blossom the panda inside the mag.
At this time I dropped some hours in my day job so I could concentrate on doing more crochet more. I think this was also the month that my yarn stash became bigger than a mountain.
I tried my first attempt at a full crochet garment pattern and the results were this sunny lacy cardie that was published in this months Craftseller.
Along with the Cardigan they also commissioned this boy tourist doll.
My geisha girls also got reprinted this month and appeared on the cover of Love knitting and crochet magazine.
well that's it for the first half of the year, I'll type up the rest of the year soon xxx
