Last week Sandra Paul aka Cherry Heart, came to the Craft Barn for a Spice of Life Crochet Along meet up. It was a lovely, relaxed afternoon for everyone to share their blankets and discuss their progress with Sandra. Sandra also offered advice on stitches, including helping out our very own Lesley. After speaking to Sandra she realised where she had gained a few extra stitches. Here she is taking back the crochet. It happens to us all! This pic below is of Lesley’s second #spiceoflifecal blanket. I wonder how many people out there have more than one on the go at once.
Sandra moved around the tables chatting to everyone whilst they crocheted their blankets and enjoyed a cup of tea and biscuits.
Here are a couple of Spice of Life blankets our customers were crocheting.
Whilst Sandra was here in the building Sara took the chance to have a quick catch up with Sandra, about the Spice of Life Crochet Along and its incredible popularity. It is amazing to see that the dedicated Facebook group (Spice of Life Crochet Along group) has over 4,600 members. Watch the video here on our YouTube channel.
Sandra brought along a selection of her other irresistible crocheted delights too, including blankets and shawls. The colours Sandra puts together work together harmoniously, along with her choice of stitch and yarn. A lot of thought and work goes into these designs. Many of these patterns can be found on the Cherry Heart blog patterns page.

Take a look at the detailed floral edging on the shawl in the centre, so pretty!
A gorgeous pastel blanket crocheted in a cotton based yarn.
How cute are these circle droplets adorning the edge of this cheerful blanket? It reminds me of pick n mix!
