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
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

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?
Happy Tuesday everyone! Let me start by saying this is the first cardmaking challenge I have ever entered, but I decided maybe it was time to branch out and have a go. There are so many challenge blogs out there that it was difficult to choose, but in the end I went for this one…… Continue reading Hello Card
Between all of the cardmaking and wood burning my crochet WIP has been a tad neglected, though it has grown quite a bit. I’ve had to change the pattern of colours from my original idea as it although was intended to be a yarn eating project it has been a bit greedier than planned! I…… Continue reading Woolly WIP Update
We were lucky enough to have a 4th Birthday party to go to today, so I made a card for the occasion. The layout might look familiar to those who follow my blog as I used the exact same one for this card. I thought it worked really well and decided it was perfect for square…… Continue reading Square Birthday Card
