Holiday crochet – a lovely and busy time!

Holiday crochet!

Sorry for the silence but I have been on holiday for an amazing 5 weeks!  I decamped the small people to my parents house in Spain and enjoyed blissful weeks of days at the beach, visiting glorious parks and open spaces and splashing in the pool.  It was just wonderful….but although the dubious internet connection meant blogging was pretty much ruled out, I was busy, busy, busy!

I often get asked when I find time to make all of the lovely things in the Ruby & Custard shop and this is pretty much the answer! The above is a snapshot of what I brought home 🙂

I also did a lot of exciting pattern designing which was really good fun, I’ll share more of what I’ve been up to in due course as it is hopefully part of a bigger story but there will be more free patterns coming soon as well as some lovely new products for the Ruby & Custard shop so watch this space!

Shop now open

All in all I had an utterly ‘fab’ time (get it? Sorry!) And of course I am very pleased to announce that the Ruby & Custard shop is now open for business again and with the weather being decidedly un-seasonally cold in the UK it might be a good time to stock up on some gorgeous crochet owl hats, crochet monkey hats or even a crochet knight hat?

I hope you all had a lovely Summer,

best wishes,

  1. Wow! Now THAT is a productive holiday! I dream of those kinds of days. With three young kids (5, 3, and 1 years old), it’s a little tricky. Thanks for sharing all your lovely work, and I look forward to seeing what new things you’ve come up with!

We Love to Hear From You
