#TunisianTuesdayCAL

Tunisian Tuesday CAL19 July 2016 – Week 1 & Introduction

After the workshop on Saturday, Faye and Helen (Rainbow Valley Crochet) decided that they would like to improve their Tunisian crochet skills. They have found a gorgeous blanket with 35 different blocks and have decided to make one each week. Then they realised that this would be really good to do as a CAL (crochet-a-long). They are calling it “Tunisian Tuesday”.

The idea is to make one block each week. We are not making them in the correct order, just as our fancy takes us. Faye and I will make them in advance and share ours to tell you which block we have chosen. You can then share your finished block in the comments onRainbow Valley Crochet. If you would like to join in, you would be welcome. You can buy the pattern from gourmetcrochet – Carolyn Christmas. If you are joining in, it would be nice to see your chosen colour scheme.

Don’t have a Tunisian hook? Chiaogoo Tunisian Crochet Hooks are available here, they are 80 cm (32 inch) flexible, patina Tunisian hooks which have fantastic joins and pliable, clear, nylon cables with a nickel-plated, copper join that is crimped to guarantee no separation. Hook swivels freely on cable. Size is permanently laser imprinted on each hook.

Rainbow Valley Crochet also stocks a variety of yarns too.

Tunisian Sample Afghan Block 30

‪#‎TunisianTuesdayCAL‬ Week 1.

This weeks block is number 30. We have gone for a plain Tunisian Simple Stitch block so that those new to Tunisian can learn a basic stitch before we start on the patterned blocks. We would love to see your finished blocks and your chosen colour schemes too. You are more than welcome to join us on Facebook – Rainbow Valley Crochet

NOTES – Helen & Faye are both using Stylecraft Special DK yarns with 5 mm bamboo hooks & 5 mm crochet hooks. The blocks before borders are measuring approximately 5 x 5″ inches or 15 x 15 cm.

Allow yourself approximately 2 hours for making the block.

Helen says – This is my first block. It measured about 15 cm before the border was added. I did 20 rows instead of the 18 the pattern said.

Faye says – This is my block. The bit before the border measured 5 x 5 inches and I did 19 rows instead of the 18 stated. I’m using a 5 mm bamboo Tunisian hook and a 5 mm crochet hook for the border.

Carolyn says “This is great, Helen! Thank you for letting me know. I hope you all have fun.”

I'm having such fun doing this project with my daughter.
 
I'm teaching my daughter wet felting while she collaborates on an exhibition piece. In Rochester we have an annual exhibition called An Assemblance of Judicious Heretics. Local writers and poets are given a theme, then their work is distributed to artists anonymously. The artists then "illustrate" the work.
I'm very lucky this year to have another wonderful piece with plenty of imagery to work from. I'm afraid that I cannot reveal the writing or our completed work until the exhibition opens in September. However I can share snippets that won't give the entire thing away.

Last week we had a group of young people in from Talent Match South East (a Prince's Trust scheme for long term unemployed 18-24 year olds). The week was designed to help boost their confidence and social interaction skills.
I think we achieved this as you can see from the video they made at the end of the week.

The content, filming, props, costumes, script and editing were produced by the group. All we did was provide them with the venue and creative outlet.

My felt apprentice. We're working on a "secrer" project. Every year a group of writers submit themed work to An Assemblance of Judicious Heretics. The work then gets distributed anonymously to local artists for illustrating.
The exhibition opens in September and then we can reveal the finished work and piece of writing that goes with it.

Introduction
I am a Mum to two beautiful girls!

I have rediscovered a zest for life this year and realised how great it is to have freedom and space to be who I want to be.

The trouble with this discovery is that I now have difficulty letting anyone help or take care of me!

What else? Oh I love being a Scout Leader and I really enjoy Geocaching.
Bragging rights
I am a Cub Scout Leader and love being outdoors and camping when I am not on social network sites.
