Crochet projects

I have just finished my first attempt at crocheting a rag rug. I used old t shirts that were surplus to requirements. As it was really just a learning project I made a rug/bed for my dogs and was not bothered about matching colours. I was just learning the techniques required.

Now that I have the know how it is time to start a proper project and I have found just the thing I would like to make.

This wonderful Cupcake rug.

I found this wonderful rug for sale on Etsy

However I do not intend to buy it I am going to make my own and I will blog how I did it here so if you wish you can make your own too! So watch this space as I am out in a bit to find the material for it :)

So... first blog

The whole idea of starting this blog is really to document the various projects I have on the go. I tend to find something I like doing, do it to death then move on to my next interest.

I intend to blog about each project with pictures and a 'how to' if possible.

I will also include things that I have found on the internet that I really admire, and maybe intend to have a go at.
