My crafting in the last month has mainly revolved around scarves.

It’s the Unicorn Dreams CAL by Cute Crochet Makes, and is a really fun mix of…… Continue reading WIP Wednesday-17th July
It’s only been a fortnight since my last post, but it feels like ages. Things here are incredibly busy-the decorating is still in full swing and almost every spare minute is taken up with a little job. The allotment is also very much a work in progress! I’ll start off with a little decorating update.…… Continue reading Long time, no see!
