Hello There and Welcome!!!

Hi guys,

Thank you so much for dropping by!

This blog is such an exciting thing for my sister Felicity and me!!! I've never written a blog post before "in my life"! So please bear with me! Felicity and me have been thinking of doing a blog for a while now and decided we would do one between us, alternating each week, sharing what we've been up to that week and how our "many" projects are progressing. My sister is really great at finishing her projects, I tend to get a bit over-excited and start too many before finishing the ones I've already got on the go!!! So there may be many pictures of projects that seem to go on forever and you may wonder if they will ever be finished! In fact, I often wonder that myself!

Here is my current favourite project: 

It's going to be a blanket in shell stitch. I'm almost onto the 6th pattern repeat now.

I love making this stitch soooo much. It's very relaxing and fairly quick to do. At first glance it looks quite complicated but it's not at all, and very easy to watch TV at the same time while hooking away!

There's lots more I would like to share with you, but I think I'll leave it there for my very first post! My sister will be chatting with you next Sunday, and I'll see you in two weeks time. To keep up to date with us, please do follow our Instagram accounts @xxellie_jayne_craftsxx and @craftingwithfelicity we appreciate all our faithful followers sooo much and all your likes and comments mean so much to us. Thank you so much guys! Have a lovely week and speak to you again soon! 

Lots of love Ellie Xx
