A WIP Wednesday/FO Friday mash up

I missed WIP Wednesday as I was so busy and didn’t think ahead to schedule a post, so I thought I would combine it with a finished object post too. My FO was actually two papercraft projects made for, and sent to, a friend who is opening her own yarn store this weekend! I’ll start…… Continue reading A WIP Wednesday/FO Friday mash up

How To Win At Yarn Chicken

This is a post that’s been brewing for a while, and is a follow up to my post 5 Rules For Playing Yarn Chicken which I wrote a few months ago.

Things I’ve Learned As A Silhouette Cameo 3 Beginner

I have been the proud owner of one of these awesome machines for 15 whole days now, although I only got it out on Boxing Day evening.

5 Things I learned From My First Craft Fair

Today I attended my first ever craft fair as a seller. I’ve been to tonnes as a buyer, but today was a totally different experience. I thought I’d share what I found out from my day. It wasn’t a great big fair, just a small charity fundraiser in the village hall. I don’t think I’m…… Continue reading 5 Things I learned From My First Craft Fair

The Quest For the Perfect Pompom

I’m normally quite a stubborn person (determined is a nicer world!) and therefore I don’t give up easily. Despite me declaring in my WIP Wednesday post that I was ‘quitting’ making home made pompoms, my fellow bloggers have aided and abetted me by providing links, and my stubborn side won over.
