This pattern has been under way for quite some time. It could be argued that I have been procrastinating over it, although that wouldn’t be me to do that at all…
I actually really enjoy working this pattern and have another sample ready for photography once the light and the weather is more co-operative. [...]
Today nine superb tapestry crocheters were hatched at the library in Skive in Denmark, another great day and I think the pictures speak for themselves!

I have not exactly been going to bed early the last week or so and that is for a very good reason, if I may say so myself. I allowed myself to indulge in a spot of my all time favourite crochet discipline, namely tapestry crochet.
I have harboured the idea for a colourful handbag for [...]
I have finally found a workaround for the handles of the handbag I started in June. I couldn’t finish it there and then as the vintage handles I had stashed were first hidden in ‘a safe place’ and when they finally showed up, they turned out to be unsuitable for the bag.
