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 […]

When Timmy met Tamara

Timmy often feels a bit gloomy. He’s not really miserable or grumpy, but he’s never exactly cheerful. This morning he was feeling particularly gloomy.

It’s always just bright and colourful, full of gorgeous inspiration and amazing patterns. So I was […]

WiP Wed: 4th Jan 2017

Hello and welcome to WiP Wed! [That’s ‘Work in Progress Wednesday :)] Here’s what I’m working on at the moment… This is a runner for the top of my roll top desk. I’ve already started to use it as a landing place, and it’s a useful space to move things to when I’m running out […]

Poppy

A few weeks ago a friend asked if I would crochet her a poppy for Remembrance Day. After a quick pinterest search I found this great pattern on Kandipandi’s page. The pattern was easy to follow and it worked up really quickly – my favourite kind of project! I finished it off with a brooch pin […]
