Meet the Hosts

The Autumn WiP-Along on Instagram was hosted by myself (@goslingandplumb) and Charlie (@lovecharlie.co). It was great to plan with Charlie and the WiP-Along was really successful – but really busy! We were both working full time, there was a lot of activity on the WiP-Along hashtags and at times it was hard to keep up […]

Welcome to the Marching Forward WiP-Along!

This post is rather long and rambling, so just scroll to the bottom for the key points if you don’t have time for the waffle! It’s true – the WiP-Along is back! Last October I co-hosted a WiP-Along on Instagram with Charlie (@lovecharlie.co/www.lovecharlie.co) and we had such a great time! Our intention was to connect […]

Bullet journal beginnings

Almost on a whim, I decided to start a bullet journal. It was the end of the year, January was just around the corner, and the idea popped into my head that it would be nice to start a new journal. But I wanted something that was more than just a journal. I wanted something […]

Woodland Blanket CAL

Ever since I started relearning to crochet, I’ve been a fan of Attic24’s wonderfully colourful blog. Her simple, easy to follow instructions, full of helpful photos, helped me gain confidence as I was getting to grips with using a hook and following a pattern. Over the years I’ve made several blankets using her patterns and […]

Looking back at 2017

2017 has been a much more settled, stable year than 2016  was. My job has continued to be pretty stress free, which has meant that I’ve had plenty of time to spend on all sorts of crafty activities! This year I have also discovered the wonderful crafting community on Instagram. It’s been great connecting with […]

Vintage Sampler Blanket Ta-dah!

This ta-dah post has been a long time coming. I actually finished the blanket almost two years ago(!) but there was a rather big blip in my blogging at that point, so I didn’t get round to doing a write up, or even taking photos, of my finished beauty. I had been inspired by Sandra […]

Autumn WAL WiP List

Ever since I started thinking about the idea of running a WiP-Along I had a kind of vague idea about what I would work on too. You see, I have a WiP box in my craft room. It has been there for the last couple of years and even though it’s been moved around at […]

Welcome to the Autumn WiP-Along!

I’m so excited to be writing this post! Because of my excitement, I may waffle on even more than usual. If you lose track of what I’m on about, head to the end of the post where you’ll find the key points! I told you a couple of weeks ago about my August WiP Challenge. Before […]

August WiP Challenge

Does anyone else ever have so many different works in progress that some of them get sidelined? Maybe for weeks, months or even years at a time? Well that’s the state that I’ve found myself in. I love the excitement of starting something new, buying new yarn, picking out a great pattern… And I usually […]
