Crochet Teapots, Football, Hats and Babies!

Hello Friends, Followers and Family! (FFF)
I have been very creative lately and the sense of pride in finishing alot of my projects has been wonderful, I would love to share with you those projects now...

Milk or sugar?

or maybe a herbal tea?


My Husband Morgan, is on the management team for our local football club Galway Utd - this season has been a nightmare for us, as the team has lost each home match, and it is not in lack of skill as some of the players are great! but in my opinion the person in charge last year really wreaked things financially and left the club struggling to survive, Its something that has made me really angry as these people who are in part responsible for the state of the club today retreated into the shadows leaving a group of volunteers like my husband to take all the knocks from fans and papers and also left them to worry about where the next source of money is coming from! They do so much trying to raise money and giving their free time just to help at the matches and collect money on the streets of Galway - but it saddens me to see that the Players are not out helping and that the manager when interviewed complains that he hasn't been given enough money to buy new players, never in any interview has he said that the management team are doing a good job.... I feel that maybe if he got on to the players to take part in the club they would have more heart in the games. I go to the matches and I have seen that the fans are there but that they feel like the match is lost before it begins - so I decided to make this for myself to show my pride in the management committee of 18 talented men who give their time and effort to the day to day running of the football club. "The Galway United Management Committee consists of loyal and committed supporters of the club." If anyone would like to make a small donation here is the link -

I also crocheted myself a hat from lovely yarn I got on a holiday in Cork, it is my own pattern - and I hand stitch crystals into each front post row.





I am sorry that I have not blogged for almost two months, I have been quite ill with a infection and it took alot out of me- but I am on the mend and after a biopsy hope to have answers in the next coming weeks.
Where would I be without my loving husband Morg, my family or my best friend Melanie looking after me?! Thanks guys!
While I wasn't feeling well I got ALOT crocheted! but some items are still with a very talented photographer whom I am in collaboration with-  Bartosz Kotulski -who took the next photos of baby Hannah and my hats - wonderful!

    Happy Craftin!

  3. Hey, just surfed in from a 'crochet hat with ribbon' keyword search on Google. You've made some lovely things. Just started crochet myself and am completely addicted. Working on my first project (a stripey scarf)...but a hat with a ribbon is my next project :)
