I’m a huge fan of crochet bags. No surprise really, probably what is the surprise if that I haven’t ever got around to sharing my many creations with you here. I’ve made them for years, and they see to be my go to project for a holiday as acrylic yarn and hot weather does not… Read More Wing it Market Tote
As promised, I’m back on the crochet. In fact, I never actually left it, I just had other things to type about! A while ago, I completely lost my crojo, didn’t know what to make, couldn’t actually face picking up a hook. Well, consider this the opposite of that. I’m being so creative, its starting… Read More Crocheting again
I can promise you all I am still crocheting all the time I possibly can, and I can promise you, crochet normal service will resume very soon on this blog. I did however let on a few months ago, I’m a secret foodie, and this post is about our visit to The Ledbury last week,… Read More The Ledbury
As part of my 2018 goals, I decided to learn 12 new crafts and skills, as well as more crochet! I’m on number 4 now, having done Macrame, and I love this, and teach it now too.

This time was a little different, instead of heading straight down to Koh Samui, this time we decided that with the little people people being nearly 8 and 10, we’d take them to Bangkok too.… Read More Our Easter family break

A long time ago, I started a jumper for me – well I say a jumper. I wanted a cardigan…… but “winging it” with no pattern was not on my side this time! It was my first time making an adult sized item of clothing. I’d seen some gorgeous jumpers on Pinterest, in the most… Read More A new Jumper for me!
I treated my self to a new crochet book a few weeks ago. I’d seen lots of people talking on instagram accounts, and I’ve followed the author Lalylala on Instragram for a long time – I love her Sheep doll! So, while I was waiting in the hospital for many hours with the pink one… Read More Lalylala, Beetles, Bugs and Butterflies
It’s time to finally show you the blanket that I made at the end of last year. I’d made lots and lots of circles and changed them into squares which you can read all about in some previous posts I made. The final layout was decided pretty quickly – before I could change my mind!… Read More Starburst Blanket Finished!
