I took a little time out from crochet this week to have a go at making a wreath. It was only November, but definitely time to get Festive and start thinking about all those presents I wish I’d bought already! So I went on a workshop with the very talented florist, Sarah Maylin Flowers. She’s… Read More Christmas Wreath Making
The circles are growing and are all too time consuming. A quick post for the round 2’s….. all 156 of them! I’m starting to think I may need more than I thought! Even with a change in the pattern to make the centre bigger I’m still not sure what size this blanket (yep you were… Read More More circles…..
Hello, haven’t been here for a while. Computer technical issues, don’t get me started, but no internet, then folders on the iMac not working, then photos not finding my phone, have all put paid to me posting lately.

It had to be done……. my craft trolley was bursting at the seams! My very understanding husband had been dropping a few hints about the mountain of “stuff” in the corner.

I’d written it in my diary months ago, but it was only on Monday when I turned the pages to see what I was doing this… Read More The knitting and stitching show
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?
It had to be done. The Pink one loves unicorns, I mean she’s absolutely besotted with them. After Violet the Unicorn made an appearance in our house, I had another bright idea! What every little girl needs is a bag, and a striking bag at that! Thinking cap on, and a new wool delivery later,… Read More Raindrop the Unicorn backpack
The blue one plays golf, and has been in a few competitions. He’s got a set of golf clubs, but they were missing any fancy covers. “Mummy, can you make me some covers- crochet please” was the request this time. But he didn’t want plain ones, oh no, he wanted animals! So chunky yarn was… Read More Golf club covers
It’s definitely feeling like Summer is over, that is if it ever really began! We had a hugely hot June, 34 degrees in some places which for the Uk is just silly as we don’t really do “aircon” more log fires and central heating. Being British most people moaned about the heat….. and then it… Read More Percy the Mini Pumpkin
