I’ve come to the conclusion I’m a bit too creative. I know – shocker! I’m sat here, deciding what I should write up and what I should be sharing – then I turned around and looked at my craft corner, which I have to say is completely overflowing! I have so many things that are… Read More Too Creative?
This is one of those posts I’ve been meaning to write for a long time. I thought that as the little people were finally back at school today – and I just about survived the 6 weeks it’d be a good use of my time. I thought it’d be quiet here today….. but no…… Read More Lino Print workshop
I went on this brilliant workshop a couple of weeks ago, designing, cutting and making glass pendants. I’m not really one for jewellery, but thought I’d make one for my mum (read a bit further on!).

It’s now March, and I think I’ve managed maybe 3 posts, but they aren’t… Read More Bursting with Creativity
A while I ago, I had a go at dyeing some yarn, and told you all about it in a blog post. I then had this bright idea and posted a skein of it, and a 3.5mm hook to my BBB, the lovely Louise at Red Haired Amazona all the way in Oz, and set her… Read More Cable cuffs
Until I’ve finished what I have started! Yep – I think we’ve all said that at one time or another! But this is me writing to myself to try and resist the urge to pick up my hook, scissors and or material, and get creating! I’m itching to start designing something new, BUT, I must… Read More I really must not start anything else……….
My 2 year old niece loves owls! Any excuse for me to make something! Her mum made her a fab button art picture with me when they came to came to stay. I wanted to make her a hat, but was told pretty quickly that she doesn’t do hats! Shame – there is a fab… Read More An Owl Cushion
I’m a bit late posting this, the actual day was back in November but hey……. For Children in Need this year our school had the theme of Superheros.
