Crochet and Crowds

I wouldn't really describe myself as an extrovert but I have been learning this week that I am  bit of a show off at heart.
We are now half way through Perthshire Open Studios and I'm having  a ball. It's so nice to have so many visitors to the shop who are genuinely interested in what I make, how I make it and where I get my ideas from.
I've been trying to have little projects on the go all week so that I can have something to demonstrate for my visitors. Crocheting bracelets has proved to be a crowd pleaser. Of course you can't keep doing the same thing over and over without getting just a little bit bored so I looked out a crochet book with a section on edging patterns and came across this one. It looks rather nice in gold and silver coloured wires with little glass pearls. I may be biased.... but I do rather like this one.
There are loads of creative people showing off all over Perthshire. Just look HERE and see.
And for the rest of the world just look HERE and visit Our Creative Spaces

It's lovely to come across crafty UK bloggers!! Your pieces are just stunning - I'd have loved to pop my myself if I were in your neck of the woods. The open studio idea sounds brilliant to me - what a lovely way of getting people interested in buying hanmade!
