Happy Friday everyone! Today I have spent much of my day working with some very happy colours, but since I can't share them with you just now I thought I would find some around internet land and tell you about an epic project I've been asked to do instead.
Some of you may have heard of 'Teachers on Pinterest
', a collection of Pinterest boards devoted to all things education where teachers from around the world could come together in a supportive community to share ideas, support and inspire each other. The project was such a huge success that Pinterest have started another UK based community called 'Makers on Pinterest
' to create a hub for all things diy and craft, everything from seasonal holiday crafts to more specific techniques such as screen printing, knitting, quilting and you guessed it - Crochet
The super fantabulous exciting news is that I have been invited to manage the Crochet board
and oversee it's curation... *eep*
Omg, omg, omg! OMG! I can't tell you guys how thrilled I am to have this new job! To say I was giddy when Pinterest first asked my is a huge understatement! Actually I was a wee bit sceptical at first since it was one of those things that seemed too good to be true you know? It's not everyday Pinterest comes along and asks you to do this kind of thing, is it!?
I have only just begun to add pins to this board
but I have big plans for it's development as part of our creative community. My hope is that it will be a place to support and showcase great crochet designers, provide inspiration for crocheters of all levels and be a source book of links for all things crochet related, everything from designs to tutorials and beautiful yarns. This will be an undertaking of gargantuan proportions I know so I don't plan to do it all on my own, no way! Over the coming months I will be looking to invite some wonderful fellow crochet
enthusiasts to join me and together I hope we can share lots of beautiful crochet with you all!
So yes, today marks the start of a new coloumn on my blog called 'crochet pinning
' where I will share some of my top picks from the Crochet board
with you. Of course I will include direct links to each of the pins so you can go off and explore a wee bit of crochet loveliness for yourselves over a large pot of tea. You will definitely need a large pot of tea and probably some chocolate too, maybe even cake or some biscuits! Because you know once you jump down that rabbit hole, it goes on forever...
Wishing you all happy colours for the weekend,
