Do you ever get to the point with crochet that you really want to make something that quick, straight forward, and someone else has done the hard work for you? I love designing things, but sometimes sat down on the sofa with note books, pencils, and scribbles absolutely everywhere and ‘frogging’ happening every row can… Read More A Cardigan in under 9 hours
I’ve been super busy and super secretive too…… learning Macrame! New skill number 2 – tick and it’s only January! (Number one was calligraphy – read about it here) I know – very retro, but also very in too! It’s super addictive too when you get going, and pretty quick to get results. The downside… Read More Learning a new craft – Number 2 for 2018
Ok, So I will admit it, I’m getting a bit obsessed with glass Jewellery, and making it!

Hello, I’m back here briefly to share my blanket progress with you. Remember all those circles with 2 rounds? I wrote about them here, if you want a read. Well then I hit a stumbling block. I had it in my head I wanted no two circles with the same colours. Then I thought that… Read More Blanket progress
Happy New Year to everyone! 2018 promises to be a great year, but it’s also a time for me to sit and think about which direction I’d like my blog to go, and me for that matter! I know I wrote a similar post this time last year, and I made the decision that all… Read More New year New focus?
I’m getting a bit addicted to wreaths, or all shapes and sizes! I love the “real ones” and made one a couple of weeks ago at a great workshop which you can read about here. I made a crochet one in my first year of crocheting – a challenge to myself, but I never got… Read More A quick and easy Crochet Christmas wreath
I thought it about time that I finally posted about our completely magical trip to Lapland. We were there exactly a year ago, and it was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. We were a little mean, and didn’t tell the pink one and the blue one until we were about to leave… Read More Lapland
