Long time, no speak

Wow! It's been so long since I last posted here.

I've been busy being a mom, a wife, working part time and building up Leasowes View.
I'm really pleased that my little Leasowes View venture is doing well and although it takes up a lot of my spare time, I'm really enjoying it.
It'll soon be September, so I think it's OK to say the C word! Yes, for handmade artists, the next few months are very busy with Christmas handmade market prep.
If you'd like to come and say hello at a market, then see the Events section of my main website. I can't wait to set up my stall. You meet so many lovely fellow makers and customers who genuinely appreciate handmade items and the work that goes into each piece.
If you're interested in the day to day happenings of Leasowes View, then why not follow along on Instagram
Until the next time...

Vintage Vibes

After a sickly Christmas and New Year, I have slowly got back to crocheting. This week has seen three new makes ... all with a vintage vibe.

Twilley's Book of Instant Crochet has a gorgeous pattern for a Crochet Dressing Table Set. I remember as child elder relatives would have these type of sets.
This baby hat works up quickly in DK yarn. I can see myself embellishing further makes with flowers for a springtime feel.
I keep a lot of the crochet magazines I buy and this matinee cardigan (Inside Crochet issue 42) has been bookmarked for some time. It was a dream to make.
Custom orders are welcome... just get in touch.
