tierlantynkies and the african flower motif

tierlantynkies1

As you know Elsbeth and I have a small business called Empty Nest.

Well, between 27 April and 3 May this year our nest was CERTAINLY not empty!

We held crochet workshops at the Tierlantynkies Market in Pretoria,

And on the side we sold some lovely yarn from I Love Yarn

tierlantynkies2

and Moya Yarn.

From the very young

to the more mature ladies discovered the magic of crochet in our beginners workshops.

And for everyone else who just wanted to spend 2 hours crocheting something new,

tierlantynkies6

spending time with friends,

drinking wine, laughing and relaxing, we introduced them to these 3 motifs…

The humble Granny Square, the popular Rustic Lace Square and

THE AFRICAN FLOWER.

Needless to say, I got a little carried away…

Over the course of 7 days I progressed from one

to more

and more

to many.

Until I had a small ‘roll’

of African Flowers,

And ultimately this half-finished beautiful blanket made with left-over “kakriel” yarns.

But acrylic blankets last forever and who wouldn’t want to play with so many colours at the same time.

As you might have noticed our blog posts have been few and far between.

I can explain. This is also the reason why I have to move my Happy African Blanket to the side (sad face emoji).

Anisa, Elsbeth and I am working on a wonderful, packed-to-the-brim crochet book with something in it for everyone.

And there’s only 3 months left.

Elsbeth and I have even postponed all our crochet classes (The Gentle Art of Crochet) until November 2016 by which time we hope the  ‘crochet dust’ will have settled.

Please join me on MY INSTAGRAM to keep up with happenings.

Although I can’t show you exactly what I’m making for our book, you’ll get glimpses of the beautiful yarns I’m working with.

We have THE MOST amazing yarn sponsors!

Thank you for following our blog.

Have a wonderful week!
