New crafty venue in Lampeter (Ceredigion)

I was very happy to discover that our old Post Office in Lampeter has been put to excellent use. It has been converted to a wonderful, welcoming and inspiring wool shop called  Red Apple Yarn.  It has a cosy atmosphere and there are tables and chairs for those who want to sit and knit or crochet. They run little workshops for knitting and crochet lovers. Have a look at the pictures and you will get a feel of the place. I am sure you'll agree it is a lovely place. If you are near or in Lampeter be sure to pop in! You can also find them on Facebook, Red Apple Yarn

Chaotic life

It has been a while again since I blogged.  No, I had not forgotten to but life had taken over for a while. I have been Granny-sitting for a forthnight and it had rather tired me out and on top of that I caught a most horrible cold. I am still getting over that (still coughing well) but in the mean time I have been busy with the crochet hook. Considering I have only recently taken up crochet, the crochet bug has truly gotten hold of me. I have made a few bags.

Not too bad for a novice crocheter is it? I am still busy crocheting bags, but if you have any suggestions on what else I should attempt, please let me know. I love a comment!

As well as this I have been busy setting up a website for a group of Welsh crafters. I don't know if I ever told you how much I like setting up websites? Not a lot is the answer. I am not really a technophobe but  I find I have problem with understanding how these things work. I managed it though, even if I had to ask for a teeny tiny bit of help from my son. You can have a peek at the site and find out what it is all about here. If you like the look of the site and the blog on there please comment and follow the blog as you will be treated to some wonderful artists being featured there very soon.

Well that's it for today, hopefully back tomorrow with some more crafty writings.
