Benny the Lion and Hexagon Scarf

Hello! I have been very busy this week. I am teaching again, which is wonderful, but very time consuming, so the only thing I have been able to do this week is finish sewing my hexagons together to make a scarf (I know it was going to be a blanket, but I changed my mind) […]

I love birds…

I have an obsession with birds. I must admit, when I saw the sketch from Portlandia where they made fun of people who put birds on everything, it made me feel terrible, but then I laughed. I made this brooch. It’s detailed, so hopefully I can get away from it being made fun of! The […]

Cakes, Bubushka Dolls, Scarves and Blankets

Samosas, spicy chicken, curry, rice – nom! My friend was very emotional but looked beautiful. Today is her wedding. I can’t wait. I […]
