I met up with my lovely friend Rachel Henderson last night for a wee drink to find out what she’s been to lately. As well as starting a blog here, lots and lots of crafting is the answer, not just knit but crochet of course as well as decoupage, recycling / upcycling, mosaicing ( is that a word? ) and tomorrow night she’ll be doing another slot on ‘ The Hour’ on STV at around 5.00pm, I think that’s the time, to tell the truth I’m usually too engrossed in Law & Order on Hallmark. Rachel is a bit of a YCD ( Young Craft Diva) and as long as it’s creative, she’ll turn her crafty hands to it, and tomorrow she’ll be showing how to make wedding corsages from vintage finds.
I’m currently up to my neck in graph paper working on 3 new designs ( yes I know you can do these things on a computer these days but I’m a bit ‘old school’ ) but when I get a minute or two I’ll post some tips / techniques for the Chrysalis cardigan. I like to use embroidery as well as beading in my work but realise it’s not everyone’s thing so a few video tips will hopefully help. I may try to find a hand model though as I’m really not happy with the way my chunky little fingers look . . . .
