What's on the go for me now? Well loads as usual πŸ˜† These are the 4 main things I'm working on. Top left is my next big ebook "More than a Granny 2". Top right is the Fran Mystery CAL & ebook, bottom left is the next as yet unnamed CAL project, and bottom right is part of an ecourse I'm planning for beginners. I wish making these things was all I was doing, but the reality is admin, publishing and other computery stuff is taking about 80% of the time I have available to spend on my business. This needs to change. I know I need to work smarter so I have more time to create, but the actual how is stumping me right now. How do you Balance the boring stuff and the fun stuff? I'd be really interested to know! #crochet #crochetaddict #monthofbizlove

mobiusgirl : You're making a mandala! Wish I had some tips on the admin stuff. In my other business, I tend to ignore it until it piles clearly I don't have any good advice!
luvmyquiltlife : Can't wait for the next CAL. Already looking beautiful
jodiericrac : Administrivia is the killer. I have no advice, I wish I did. The balance between creative time and businessy time is always in flux.
marretjeroos : Love your work, as always! Alas, no advice from me - facing the same problems.....πŸ˜πŸŒΉπŸ’•

Time for another ramble- there'll be 2 today as I'm playing catch up. So first up today, why do I do what I do? What's my purpose? (My inner nerd can't help but say 42 πŸ˜†) Well, I want my patterns to give you new and innovative crochet options that are a joy to create and give to loved ones - beginner and advanced crocheters alike. Things you're proud of - gifts that amaze and delight. So how do I do that? Well, for beginners, I want you to know you can do so much with the most basic stitches! I always write my patterns with the adventurous beginner in mind- there's no guessing what I mean. Every step is explained, often with photos. For more advanced crocheters, I have patterns to interest and challenge you too. No chance of getting bored! I want you to create things that you're proud of and look the best they possibly can, so I include hints for making things look as seamless as possible- you won't find a join up the side in any of my patterns in fact you'll struggle to see where they are. It's a bit of a thing for me πŸ˜‰ I'm always here to help too so if anything is ever not clear to you just ask via email or blog comments or here on insty. 😊I'd love to know if all this is in fact what you get out of my patterns? Or is there something else? I think that's enough for now! #crochet #crochetaddict #monthofbizlove

If you had told me 5 years ago that I would have a crochet design business, I would have scoffed and thought "Yeah. As if!" 5 years or so ago I decided to teach myself how to crochet. Something just clicked in my brain and before I knew it I was designing my own patterns. I never intended to try to make a living from it, initially it was just another craft I wanted to try, but that's become my dream now. I'm not there yet but I'm working towards it. I just love designing new things. I don't think anyone really understands how much joy it gives me to come up with a new pattern. To go that go that extra step to create patterns other folks can use - well that's the icing on the cake for me - seeing others enjoy working up something I created. 😊 So thank you if you've made one of my patterns, shared your work with me, commented on my work. You make my heart sing 😚 (I'm doing a daily focus on my lil business for 30 days so expect more rambles πŸ˜‰) #crochet #crochetaddict #52weeksofcrochetdesign #monthofbizlove

spincushions : @marretjeroos thank you dear Marrianne! You have been with me from the start. You're doing so well! I love the direction you're heading. One day I'll achieve my dream and do this for a living. One day soon I hope. 😊 Thank you so much for your contstant support and kindness 😊
spincushions : @jenhag thanks so much Jen! I can't recall how we connected anymore but I'm so happy we did. Your work is amazing!
jenhag : I first started following you because of your amazing pin cushions, and then you went and made it even better with all this gorgeous crochet! I so love watching what you do. 😘 (and thank you!)
spincushions : @jenhag ahh the pincushion days! They seem so long ago now lol. 😊

I think the mystery is over now for the Fran Mystery CAL so here she is in all her navy blue hugeness. She's so big I had to move the furniture to lay her out πŸ˜… #crochet #crochetaddict #designing #franmysterycal #francrochetblanketebook

barbertondaisy : Shelley, I am so excited about the fact that you have ventured out of your colour comfort zone with this photo! I think I might have stolen your monochrome and you might have stolen my colour!!
spincushions : @barbertondaisy lol we have ventured into each other's colour zones haven't we? 😁 It's just a blip - back to monochrome soon πŸ˜‰
barbertondaisy : @spincushions I quite like living in your colour zone, but yes. It's just a blip for me too :) I love colours too much. Fran is beautiful xx

γ€ŠWeek 21 in blues》Catalan 😊 I kinda want to make this one again and change to the 3rd colour sooner. But that will change the final rounds. One day I'll play again. 😊 #crochet #crochetaddict #designing #52weeksofcrochetdesign yarn is Cascade Ultra Pima cotton Pattern details in the future 😊

nikkikas : I love the dark center and how the details pop with the color changes on the edges! Definitely a pattern that is enhanced with multiple colors instead of the solid color. πŸ˜ŠπŸ’™ I don't think you need to change anything!
nevesser : πŸ‘ πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ’•
a_knitters_diary : I think the colours are perfect where they are. It looks like the ocean rippling onto the sand
