Treasure!

I have made other things too. Please allow me to impress myself onto your retina (not like that): Bird necklace (polymer clay and nail varnish) Flowers (crochet, beads) Hanging Indian style charm (polymer clay, beads)   Cushion (liberty fabric)   And that’s what I’ve done recently. 🙂 Adieu!

Blockbusters Patchwork Blanket

Hello lovely people! Sorry for the lull between posts, it’s just that……I’m moving house! Aaaaaah! It is the school holidays too, so I am crocheting a massive throw for our house. Not to put over our house….for the sofa…..YOU KNOW WHAT I MEANT! N.B. Blockbusters was a terrible 80’s quiz show in the UK. It […]

I’ve been away, but I’ve been busy!

Hi hi hi hi! It seems like such a long time since I’ve posted. I’ve always been too tired to do so, even though I do peruse everyone else’s posts on WordPress to see what people are doing! Well, I got a new teaching job (permanent! woo hoo!) at a lovely new school; I went […]

Saturday 1st February AKA day off that wasn’t a day off (in pictures)

You know I love all things French: Eric Cantona, Sebastien Tellier, Brie, the phrase ‘ca suffit!’ (that’s enough), Brigitte Bardot, Coco Chanel, Pain […]

Crochet calms me down and I have made another hat.

I have had a very long and busy day. But I’m not stressed. This is partly due to having a two hour nap when I got home from work (note to self: must petition the government to make it compulsory for all people to hibernate in January) and partly due to crocheting on my journey […]

It’s a first – I’m making things and teaching AT THE SAME TIME

It’s been an immense week. First of all, I met this guy: http://www.thesumoguy.com/ who is one of the most brilliant and intelligent people I have ever met (he also works with Manchester City FC and Sir Clive Wooward – that’s how good he is), then the kids came back to school, which was lovely – I missed […]

Vintage style winter hat and scarf

Hello! I haven’t posted because I’m teaching again – which of course means that I spend most of my time trying to do the best for my little charges. BUT I have had time to make these accessories. I love the 60’s. I love chic style – think Audrey Hepburn, Edie Sedgwick, Brigitte Bardot, Jane […]
