What's not to like about Wednesday

Wednesday - I love Wednesday's. Halfway through the week, a day off for making and just being me, a day that's a bit nearer to the weekend when all my lovelies are at home with me too.

Today I've been busily hooking away making more brooches for the upcoming Pick 'n' Mix Makers Market. I had a lovely friend pop over for a natter and a munch on quite a few biscuits while I made some more Jolly Big Flower Brooches.


Just need some zingy yellow and apple green flowers and I think the colour mix will be just so. 


The Cheeky Cherries and Mistletoe Kisses are piling up ready and waiting to be stitched together. 


Later on I'll be seeing my partner in crime to chat through last minute stuff. Then on Saturday we'll be pacing the side of the road banging in road signs and generally letting North Norfolk know we'll be setting up shop in Holt next Saturday.

  1. Beautiful crochet and what a perfect day though I did have to look twice at your cherries - pardon me.....because I thought they were a garland of the Christmas variety like crochet baubles all strung together. Hope that makes sense?

    take care,

  6. Hello! I'm a lurker with no blog of my own but I get so much joy and inspiration from blog land. Thought I'd delurk to tell you how much I enjoy your blog and your crochet is beautiful. I've just learnt to crochet (very slowly! Gosh it took a while!) and can't read patterns yet but want to try to make flower brooches for teacher/brownie/granny Christmas pressies. Can I ask what size hooks you used to get your 3 different sized flowers? Also how do you turn into a brooch, do you stitch on a brooch pin (that sounds a daft question but I guess there are different ways?!). Are you a wool snob or do you use whatever you can get your hands on? I'm with you on Wednesdays, I love that felling of winding down towards the weekend with the little people. Please don't feel you must reply, maybe you could sneak some brooch info into a blog post I'm sure others would love to know! Best wishes, Sarah x

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I read all of them and really appreciate you taking the time to say hello.
I always try to get back and reply, but sometimes this may take a bit longer as pets and children always seem to need attention around here.
