My first post!!

Hello world!!

I have been inspired to start a blog by the wonderful folks from crafter...oo (great forum for all kinds of craft inspiration; problem solving; chitter chatter; etc.)

The idea is that I will update every now and then with my crafting projects; rants/ponderings about life; cool stuff I find...possibly other stuff....I'll find out as I go I suppose.

Was going to make my blog all pretty before making my first post but wanted to tell you all about what I found just now. Had nipped out of the house to feed a friend's cats and pick up some milk. In the shop I found "The Art of Crochet" issue 1. Its one of those ringbinder collecty thingys. I have been meaning to learn more than a chain stitch for years and have been recently inspired by TheBijouDragon on crafteroo (see post) who has very recently started. It must have been a sign!! 99p for the first issue which includes 2 little balls of 'wool'; a 4mm hook; a dvd; some basics and some patterns.
I don't know if I'll bother subscribing but love the cheap first issue!

I saw an advert for that on telly the other day! I've attempted to teach myself to crochet several times, and failed, but maybe I should try again?!

Welcome to the blog world!

I'm always doing that with collector magazines, I love the first cheapy issue but can never afford the second one haha. I love your little damselfly's down the side of the blog :)

Hello! I saw that mag and was most tempted - 99p for yarn and crochet hook has got to be a bargain.

Hello! I bet you find the whole blogging thing really adictive, I've only been doing it for about half a year and spend half my time thinking how I'll write about what I'm doing and what I'm going to call it! Look forward to reading your posts!
