Looking for alternative ideas for Christmas or birthday gifts? Why not give the gift of learning, a chance for your loved one or friend to enjoy your gift for years to come. This year I have been lucky to have learnt a few new hobbies, all on line in the comfort of my own home - flower arranging and crochet.

Beginners Crochet Course
I recently learnt how to crochet on line, from a fabulous course created by Beautiful Things, taught by the wonderful Claire. Once you have successfully completed your beginners course you can move on to the intermediate level. Progressing to create a beautiful tea cosy or cactus garden. I have completed both the beginners and intermediate courses and can not recommend them enough, the course content and videos are so easy to follow, I am now a crochet addict! Read more about my crochet journey and my review of the course

  3. I can thoroughly recommend the crochet course. I have almost completed the intermediate one. I bought the beginners at Yarndale in September. Prior to this I just could not get the hang of it. Well worth the money :)
