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 […]

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 […]

Delightful Dahlia Baby Blanket

Those of you who follow me on Instagram will have seen pictures of this blanket at various points over the last couple of months, although you may not recognise the name. I originally named it the hospital blanket because it was the ideal project for taking on visits to the hospital – one ball of […]

Etsy Shop: Open!

Hi everyone, how are you all? Just wanted to stop by and let you know that my shop (that I’ve been procrastinating about carefully planning for ages) is finally open – hurrah! If you’d like to stop by, you can find it here. And when I figure out how, there will also be a permanent […]

WiP Wed: 22nd March 2017

Why have one project on the go when you can be working on at least three (or four or five…)?! I’m loving these little hexies (pattern by Jacquie of Bunny Mummy). They’re super cute and so quick to make! I’m also experimenting with bigger hexies. I still haven’t made up my mind which version to go […]

The sound of cracking shells

Timmy and Tamara continued to care for their eggs carefully. Tamara protected the eggs and Timmy looked after Tamara, fetching anything she wanted at any hour of the day. They carefully monitored their precious eggs, looking closely at them every day to see if there were any signs of change. They longed for the day […]

Timmy’s surprise

Timmy and Tamara enjoyed married life. They spent more time together than ever, and continued to enjoy walks and games in the garden. One day, however, Timmy started to get a little worried. Tamara had been quite distant with him, and when he went to suggest they take a walk in the garden he couldn’t […]

This week…

…I took a trip to London to see ‘The Play That Goes Wrong’. It’s the funniest thing I’ve watched in ages – you really should go and see it! My brother ended up on stage propping up scenery – that’s him on the left… …I worked on week two of the Moorland Blanket on the London underground, on […]

A tale of two turtles

Friendship continued to blossom and grow between Timmy and Tamara. They saw each other every day and spent time chatting about everything under the sun. They discussed the best way to keep their shells clean, their favourite foods, world events (they were both less than pleased with the choice of the new president, and were […]
