Easter sewing

I’ve not been able to do much sewing recently for reasons I’ll reveal in another post. However I was determined to change that this weekend. I started off on Friday using a Scrap Pack that I’d bought from Simply Solids and tackled a job I’d been putting off for a while, repairing one of our […]

Handmade birthday gifts

  I’ve been absent on here for a bit but it’s due to a busy life rather than anything sinister.  Recently I spoilt another knitter in a birthday swap and really enjoyed planning what to make. I sent to  MummyWright  and ‘stalked’ her to find out what she liked, her favourite colours etc.  She has two […]


Merry Christmas

I hope you’re all having a lovely day with loved ones. We’ve had a relaxing day and will be eating a wonderful meal soon prepared by my husband. I’ve got Tendonitis in my right hand at the moment so haven’t been able to do much to help or even knit 🙁 Oscar also enjoys Christmas […]


Knitting catchup

New fabrics

I got paid a few days ago and had a little shopping list ready (as I’m sure many of us do every month). Mine was fabric related this month and the results are gorgeous. Last month I bought a Kona shade card from Simply Solids as solid fabrics are something that I REALLY struggle to […]


Bright tumbling quilt

A long time ago, (Boxing Day 2011 to be precise) I started playing with the Accuquilt that I had got for Christmas the day before.  I had nestled in my stash a pretty set of 5 fat quarters that Arianwen gave me as a birthday present a year or so back.   The 5 patterned […]


Morning light

We’ve had wet and windy weather for the past day or so and winter is definitely on it’s way. This photo was taken at 7:15 this morning from our bedroom window and doesn’t give the light full justice: Half an hour later whilst being blown to pieces walking the dog I took this: Now it’s […]
