… and do JOIN me in the whimsyandcosy Crochet- a -long. Simple crochet no pressure fun.. look for the email sign up box
It’s the whimsyandCosy CAL …which stands for crochet a long..
I’m not a really experienced crochet girl AT ALL… and not a ‘pattern writer’ …but what I am is a person with a wish for fun and to share my enthusiasm with others.
In that spirit – I offer to those who want it – the chance to sign up for WhimsyandCosy Blog emails… which will bring with it shortly as a BONUS (during January I plan) the WhimsyandCosy CAL as part of a PDF WhimsyandCosy read
It will be inspiration, encouragement and a simple – between friends- plan (rather than a strict pattern) for a small blanket we can all crochet ourselves but together.
… it won’t use overtly complicated stitches…and
…. maybe you can stash bust your yarn if you have lots
….if you don’t… maybe you fancy a visit to a craft shop to enjoy those colourful yarns…
You just need the plan and inspiration from me …and a little YOU time (but be assured I am writing it planning that it won’t be a massive undertaking time wise)
So if you fancy joining in and giving it a whirl – after all…there’s no pressure .. sign up for WhimsyandCosy emails and if you like join my craft group on Facebook (search ‘whimsyandcosy craft club’) – where if you like – we can ‘ meet up ‘ once a month and see if we are progressing and post pictures.
It’s just for FUN
Hoping you join me on this another fun challenge from
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Here’s the thing… I’m a reader…and a book collector …now that’s a good thing BUT can lead to full shelves and a lot of decision.
Also there is the fact that of my physical books I have read MOST (pretty good one that) but some I hoard years and they get less appealing as I think I don’t fancy reading them…
Anna Hulse in my book club on Facebook (search ‘whimsyandcosy book club’ to join us) has done the impressive and bold thing of clearing her unread books into a large shelf area and has plans to in 2017 read them or they must GO..
Harsh but fair…it’s like what they say about clothes but that’s for another blog piece.
I have a few books I’m just not sure I will read or even like and I would like to set myself the challenge. ..(I’ve not got 30 like Anna! – If I remember correctly what she said ) but it’s a motivator with my pile…
I’m at this time planning to add the piece on just WHAT I have in that pile and why have I not read it yet into the whimsyandcosy PDF…which will be exclusive to my email subscribers. ..
So if you want to see pics of what I’m going to try and make the move on book wise so to speak …sign up for the blog fun and all will be revealed about the TO BE READ pile !
Do any of YOU fancy diving into those forgotten and ignored books this year?

I love to encourage creativity, ask any of the members in my Craft Club, or my Book Club for that matter as I couldn’t help encouraging the creative in people … and so I formed the craft club I now have, you are ALL welcome to join in. We show each other lovely inspiring items of craft, and it includes COLOURING. Read WhimsyandCosy Craft Club
Join Here, love to see you there as well. We chat all sorts of crafts and art things.
I LOVE to colour, I have a stack of books and find it is one of my favorite ways to RELAX, when I want something that is completely ‘non screen‘ it really fits the bill.
2016 For me…the YEAR OF CREATIVITY! !
Part two HERE…don’t miss out!
Okay it’s not over yet! But who knows what I will create from one moment to the next (you also. .)
…I’m impulsive in these things. ..at the same time I have determination and if I have passion for something I never give up. I’m not fickle.
I have my hands full enough…apart from my home commitments , I now have 2 Facebook groups and this new blog! -it keeps me busy! …but I love it.
It’s all a labor of love…what you will see in the tagline to this blog is ..one woman’s mission to make the world a more positive place. .. I really believe in it…it’s one of my biggest aims when I wake up till I go to sleep.
