Hola! I haven’t posted for a very long time. I haven’t done very much to be honest in the way of crafting. I’ve been reading and I’ve also been on holiday to Mallorca, which Is where I got the inspiration for this bag. I couldn’t buy one there (hand luggage – it was too big […]
I have finished my cardigan. And I love it. It’s very heavy, but really warm – which is exactly what I need in this ‘spring’ weather (rain). It took a lot more wool, time and thinking than I anticipated, but it worked out well. Collar up! Or collar down. I had to […]
I wore it today. It’s raining. I don’t care. I love it. 🙂
I am making a cardigan from granny squares in the nicest (and most expensive) wool I’ve ever used. It is this: Here is a square: Here is the waistcoaty bit (I haven’t done the sleeves yet): It looks quite clumpy at the moment. It won’t. It’s a WIP!

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 have attempted to make some crochet hearts, but I couldn’t leave it at that. I have turned two into a hairclip. I’m not sure if I like this yet. I may butcher it some more. I will look at it with fresh eyes tomorrow.
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 […]
I’ve come over all Cleopatra and created a centre piece for a necklace. I get all of my gorgeous beads from the lovely Sheila at FunkyMo, who is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. I will eventually get round to beading a cord for this beauty and attaching a clasp. I basically […]
