About Dingus Designs

Hi guys,

I have a question for you. When I am at work I just want to craft, craft and more craft but when I get home I lose the mojo. Do you have this problem????

Well the tatting as been put down as I have had a major paddy with it……I am now crocheting a doily yes you read right a doily…….My good friend Tina give me a table cloth of crochet and it completely fascinates me with all the work that went into it and how was it constructed. I found this book on Amazon….


I have only had it a week and look at the state of it. It as been doing a lot of traveling in my new ruck sack. So the same night I had to try it out…..


This is how far I have got so far…….I have used I size 5 crochet thread that I got from the Wool Shop in Leeds. The crochet hook is 2mm……took a lot of swearing to get use to this size hook.


At the moment I am doing a ring of these flowers and joining as I go along………….this is very new to me……..


I am really enjoying doing this doily………………….I will have to show you the massive bargain I got from the lovely Sue at the Wool Shop last Saturday…..I love the fact this place is just around 3 corners from my house……Duncan may not be happy about it but I LOVE IT!!!!!

Have I impressed you yet?????

Luv Jane XX
