Love Is Enough
I am just popping by very quickly to tell you that my Youtube video that will give you a sneaky peek of the new version of my Fruit Garden CAL design is now live. You can find it by following this link.
I have been totally blown away by the response to my most recent design ‘The Fruit Garden CAL’ and I am so pleased that so many of you found it a comforting and rewarding project to work on during these difficult times. I think for many of us our memories of lockdown will be associated with the project and whilst the realities of the outside world have often been very difficult to process, the enjoyment of our craft and the way it can link us in a virtual way to thousands of others, whilst also creating an heirloom piece of crochet, is an enriching experience and an achievement that you should all be incredibly proud of.
I know that many of you missed out on working through the project the first-time round. In some cases this was because of not being able to source yarns, whilst for other ‘front line’ and essential workers it was a question of finding the time and not the yarn that was the challenge. The last thing we wanted was for anyone to feel disappointed to have missed or not kept up with the CAL, so we decided that we should do the whole thing all over again. I am so excited to have the chance to present you with the brand new ‘Love is Enough’ version of the project.
I have also made two new cushion covers using the motifs from the CAL. These designs, which I have named Melsetter and Kelmscott after the houses that meant a lot to May Morris, are shown in the video and the patterns for these will be available in September.
Thank you all for your incredible support over the last few months - the Fruit Garden CAL has been an incredible journey and I am so excited to see all your completed projects popping up on social media. I hope that you might be inspired to come long on another crochet along trip with me in the autumn!
