a great start to 2015

things are looking good here!  classes are now being run in Burgess Hill (@mabelsemporium) as well as in Steyning, I’ve received my first commission from @yellowbearwares for some display baskets (following a lovely morning at WindUp Steyning) and Simply Crochet are interested in featuring my heritage blanket in a summer edition.  All that within the first few months of 2015.  I wonder what the rest of the year will bring….
