This is nothing fancy; just a short video of me crocheting whatever I’m working on at the moment. I hope you like it.

I made two more centerpieces for the tables at Saturday’s Crochet for Kidney Research UK event. There’s been a surge of interest in the event* so upped my table count from six to eight. No table left behind right? I used Vinni’s Colours Nikkim in Lilac, Violet, White and Dark Purple with a 3.5 mm crochet hook . I love working with Nikkim cotton. It’s so soft and easy to use. You can buy the purple shades here.

The pattern is Vintage-Style Vase Coaster from Nicki Trench’s book Cute and Easy Crochet With Flowers which I reviewed here.

If you are joining us on Saturday, you can buy a raffle ticket for £1 and stand a chance in winning a copy of Cute and Easy Crochet with Flowers. Cico Books also very kindly sent me a copy of Cute and Easy Knitting which you can win.

The big day is getting really close now. I’m not going to lie, I am nervous (fear of the unknown and all that) but I’m also excited. I trust that excitement will start to override the nerves. If it doesn’t, I’ll just increase my Kalms intake. The show must go on!!
