Hello and welcome to Achieve It
About me and this website
This website has been around for a great many years and I was once credited as having the first Lowestoft home page website way back in 1994! This site is about my hobbies, the things we like to do and places we go.
I will from time to time have a few hand crafted items for sale available through this website – so if the shop is available, a link will be shown in the navigation bar (above).
Working with wool / crochet
As far back as I remember, I have always been able to crochet and have recently re-discovered real pleasure in working with a crochet hook again. I have also recently discovered loom knitting – the hats created from loom knitting are just great (no seams), then finishing them off with a flower or some kind of decoration is such fun. Baby bootees these days can be in just about any colour – they can be traditional type booties or even look like tiny sport shoes. There really is no end to things I want to make and create!
Sewing / Patchwork
More recent interestq I have picked up include sewing, patchwork and even embroidery. I just love being able to create something from a piece of fabric. There are just not enough hours in the day for me when it comes to making things.
Painting on stones
I have always enjoyed painting and one of the things I really enjoy doing, it to paint on stones. What better way to brighten up a dark corner of your garden for the winter period!
I love beads, beads of every colour, size and type. There are so many variations and possibilities of necklaces, bracelets, etc. I am a bead magpie. I am looking into combining breading with crochet using wire – I will post pics and info on this in due course.
So to conclude …
As you can probably tell from the above, I enjoy crafting and in addition to those crafts I have enjoyed for years, I will try my hand at most crafts and like to see what techniques are being developed and used. I am currently looking into sewing and have a nice new sewing machine – no doubt posts will be made about projects!
In addition to making products to sell online, I will look at attending craft fairs and events – perhaps blog reports to follow! This site will continually evolve – hopefully also to help other artists and crafters out there!
