Araucania - Patagonia

It is at this time every year when I get an itch to start my crochet again.  I always start with a simple scarf or hat for one of my daughters so our newest delivery was perfectly timed and we just love the colours.

Araucania Patagonia is a 100% cotton yarn that is made in Peru and hand dyed in Chile.  We have 12 gorgeous shades in stock at a great price of £4.95 per 100g hank plus free postage when you order 10 hanks of the same shade.

The large flowers used in the theme print for Gudrun Erla’s new group actually seem to glow as they appear illuminated within the design! Rich teal, dark olive, chocolate brown, warm apricot and golden tan set the color story for the collection.

The Wedding

I have been quite neglectful with this blog lately and for that I apologize.  My summer was chaotic, but fantastic.  I got married!

After 13 years and 2 children we figured the time was right.  It was the perfect day.  Although, I would like to add for anyone planning on getting married, don't leave it till a few weeks before the big day to start making your bridesmaid dresses, I was fortunate enough to have very patient and pretty bridesmaids.

Following the wedding we packed up the car and drove down to France.  Disney was our first stop, happy kids = happy honeymooners.

Then due to the fact that our two little girls are fascinated by history, mainly WW2, we spent our second week in Normandy.  Two museums a day and an endless amount of bunkers and batteries, they loved it...

and I got a chance to do some stitching that did not involve satin or chiffon nor even need a sewing machine...

work in progress


Now though we are home, the girls are back at school, my husband and I are back to work and I have over 200 new fabrics waiting for me to put online....
