Wow, that went fast! At the start of May I set myself some mini goals in this post, just to keep me busy. I was pleasantly surprised upon re reading that post when I realised I had achieved most of my goals. The weather at the start of the month was kinder than it has been…… Continue reading May Round Up
Whilst waiting for my blocking board to be made I decided to have a go at DIY blocking using a yoga mat, which I bought for £1.50 at a car boot sale. It worked pretty well so I thought I’d write up a tutorial. You will need: Yoga mat (or similar) Pins which don’t rust…… Continue reading Crochet Blocking Using A Yoga Mat
https://threadsandbobbins.files.wordpress.com/2015/02/sunday-sevens-new-logo.jpg What a busy week it’s been! It’s half term now and time for a ‘rest’. (School holidays are considerably less relaxing with your own children to entertain!) Again, many of the things which made my list are plant related, mainly because we’ve spent so much time outdoors and the weather here in Lincolnshire…… Continue reading Sunday Sevens #2
Me again with the random blog post titles. After yesterday’s rubbish day I woke up feeling much more cheerful and in the mood for cardmaking. I’d been a bit naughty yesterday and not tidied away all of the cardmaking things so I carried on with the minor rebellion and made cards whilst I was still…… Continue reading Eating The Elephant

https://threadsandbobbins.files.wordpress.com/2015/02/sunday-sevens-new-logo.jpg Welcome to my first ‘Sunday Sevens’. I am really excited to be doing this-there are so many little things I consider sharing and then decide they are not worth their own blog post so I just forget about them. I’ve put them in order of my week so far-when I look back I realise…… Continue reading Sunday Sevens
You may remember this post about my Granny’s opinion on weeds from a few weeks ago. Today at the allotment that thought came back to me as we found some unexpected plants (thankfully not as troublesome as Mare’s Tail!) The previous allotment tenant apparently used to grow potatoes (and onions, but mainly ‘tates’). The recent…… Continue reading When Is A Weed Not A Weed?
Today I did something that happens once in a blue moon-I got the sewing machine out. I love sewing but it feels like so much fuss and bother getting the machine out, sorting the extension lead etc. that I never really do it. I had a good reason today though, as my friend’s little girl…… Continue reading Sew Much Faith
