37 Hours to go

9 Jun

The time is now really ticking down and with the second backer on board we are a step closer to seeing the kickstarter a success.

I’ve learnt a lot over the last month of taking clearer photos and getting more of a sense of self across with each design. I am not a corporation. I am a single person creating designs from my mind. Taking influence from the things I love and the place I live.

There are so many new designs floating around my head that I want to do that is why I would love to have a single place to list them all. I’ve tried etsy before but find myself losing interest as you have to fight so hard being directly compared to others that everything starts looking the same.

So if you love crochet and all things geek and nature then why not get on board early and be in the know for new designs and choose some great levels of support, each giving you plenty for your support.

You can also have a sneak peak of a few ideas from one page in the growing pile of thoughts. With more from the seven deadly sins dolls, a brave deer knight, a second Horizon Zero Dawn robot and much much more.

Please have a look at the kickstarter and I will see you over there! It would be great to have more on board to share the love of crochet and begin the next year on an exciting footing.

A weekend of makes!

20 May

I’ve been busy this weekend and created a delightful little squirrel. He’s simple and can be altered with lots of different colour combos!

With that in mind and all this pattern creations, if we reach the kickstart target everyone pledging £15 and above will receive a bonus  soft creation sent straight to them. No waiting months for something to be made, a completely surprise post!

Here is the squirrel making friends with my little storm trooper.

In other news I have also got a new parcel of wools ordered so expect some new designs featuring colours outside my usual makes!!

Keep on patterning

15 May

IMG_3154Monday’s can be lacking in motivation but after a productive weekend I set to a small project whilst I plan my next big creation.

From starting this guy I thought I had a plan. But that’s the thing about plans, sometimes you have to adapt to them. A shape doesn’t look how you planned so you either start again or just go with the flow.

and so here we are! With arms long enough to cuddle up warm or long enough to reach the highest shelf, he will never be short of affection or a hug when he needs it most. IMG_3149

If you want to know how he’s made or any other patterns that are on their way then please, check out my Kickstarter. I’m looking to fund a website set up to create a one stop shop for access to my on going projects and free patterns.

The first pledge has been made so why not join them and receive some awesome things as a thank you!

A few more patterns

12 May

A small update for today and its to showcase a few more images of patterns that will be made available for free if I make my Kickstarter goal and get my website up and running.

Like what you see then please help and donate. You get some great goodies with each goal. So please, check out the project and if you don’t like crochet yourself please let anyone you know who does enjoy some geeky crochet goodness know about it to share the love!

Want crochet patterns?

12 May

I’m still working hard on new crochet creations and trying to get better at taking photos so I can do more photo tutorials in the pattern instructions.

But being on maternity leave it’s taking time to build funds for a one stop shop website to keep track of all the patterns and more easily offer them up for free! Yes free!

So I’ve turned to kickstarter with a humble and I hope achievable target. And with that in mind if you love free patterns and all things geek then please head over https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1507401260/three-legged-rabbit-crochet-and-amigurumi?ref=project_tweet to the link and pledge now.

I have so many patterns on my to do list I am excited for all that is to come!

So again if you love crochet and geeky creations the  pledge now. Any amount helps! The first load of free patterns include the stalk and sweet boy from Saga comic, a large complex saw tooth from Horizon Zero dawn and more!

New Page views

26 Jan

Want to see a bit more from The Girl Who Carried A Mountain? How about three more page previews below just waiting on the wording to be finalised and added to be complete!

We are counting down faster than I can keep up, 19 days left on the kickstarter. There are a few people funding but not nearly enough so if you do like it spread the word! You will have my utmost thanks as well as all the goodies offered on the Kickstarter. All money raised will be used to make the book and full fill the promises. If anything costs less than anticipated or who knows I have a sudden influx and raise more than needed, then it will be spent including some extra goodies into packages when sent out.
