About Me


Welcome to my blog.  My name is Bernie and I have been crocheting on and off since I was about 8 years old.  My nanna was a beautiful crocheter and made many pretty dresses for my dolls when I was little.  She taught my sister and me to crochet but I was too little at the time to understand it, so my sister taught me when I was about 8.

When I was in my teens and twenties, I crocheted a few things but nothing to the extent that I crochet now, which is every day!   What started me off again this time was my daughter leaving home and me needing something to keep my mind occupied because I missed her so much.  My sister, who also still crochets, bought me a book, hooks and some wool for my birthday, which was a month before my daughter moved out, three years ago and said this will help keep you occupied, well I haven’t looked back since!  I crochet anything and everything, spend a fortune on wool, crochet magazines and books.

In the November of that year I joined a local crochet club and that has opened up another whole new world to me.  Everyone that goes there is so nice and friendly and it’s a great place to learn new things and have a good natter about all that’s going on.

I still miss my daughter of course but I am so glad to have something interesting to do and something that I really enjoy.  I hope you enjoy reading my blog and if I can help you in any way just let me know.
