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!
Today, exactly 10 weeks after the builders arrived at our house, the baton was passed to us. They have finished the basics of our extension-the walls are plastered and woodwork is in place, so now we begin the mammoth task of decorating. Upstairs we have a bathroom to decorate, as well as our daughter’s room…… Continue reading Let the decorating commence!
I could have titled this post many things, but FO Friday was a definite no (as it’s clearly not Friday) and this was the least cheesy of a very cheesy bunch. The two hot water bottle covers I’ve been working on are finally done, so I decided it was time to share them. The left…… Continue reading A Cosy Couple
The first week of the year has been so grey and dull, the right kind of weather for stopping indoors and crafting. Last week I showed you the block stitch hot water bottle cover I was making for Mr C, and mentioned my strong dislike of sewing in ends. I calculated that by the end…… Continue reading WIP Wednesday-10th January

One of my WIPs is actually a finished object now, but my second WIP is a kind of ‘partner in crime’ to it so I’m not posting a photo of it until they are both complete. The first WIP (the now finished…… Continue reading WIP Wednesday-3rd January 2018
I’d made it my mission to complete this project before the end of the year, and managed it with a few days to spare. Way back at the end of summer, I started an Attic24 blooming flower cushion in shades to match our newly decorated bedroom. The colours were meant to pick out the ones…… Continue reading FO Friday-29th December
I’ve still managed to work on some projects this week as Mr C did all of the present wrapping whilst I was at work one day so I haven’t had to spend every evening making a mess with tape and paper. (He will definitely be on Santa’s good list for doing that job!) Instead, I’ve…… Continue reading WIP Wednesday-20th December
Instructions for making a simple pompom with a heart in
It’s that time now when the tree is retrieved from the loft (unless you buy a real one!) and the living room is filled with the plasticy ‘scent’ of tinsel that brings back memories of wearing it as a halo in the Nativity. (I wonder if Yankee Candles will add ‘tinsel sparkle’ as a fragrance…… Continue reading The Perfect Christmas Tree?
Welcome to the first post in my new blog series, which will focus on my expanding crafty repertoire. (I know I only finished the last series two days ago, but I’m a tad excited about this!) There are so many crafts I’d love to explore, even if they are one-offs and never get repeated. There’s…… Continue reading Branching Out #1 Furniture Renovation
