Indecision…

Hi there! I hope this finds you sitting in the sun with a nice cold drink, enjoying the incredible bank holiday weather? We've been out in the sun for some of the weekend, before total overload rendered the biggest girl in need of a day at home. My plan yesterday was to wear this make... Continue Reading →

A little palate cleanser

Fighting the chill in style

There are some makes that you throw yourself at with gay abandon. The quick wins, the easy fabrics; I'm looking at you, vast collection of me made sweatshirts. Then there are the ones that you mull over for some time. The ones where you carefully research and gather supplies.  The ones where you google techniques... Continue Reading →

Llovely Llamas

Today my latest blog post for Minerva Crafts goes live.  I chose to make up an old favourite, the Grainline Linden sweatshirt. And, quite unusually, I messed up! The finished project is fine; it's just not what I intended. I've mentioned quite a few times that I get very frustrated about fabric requirements on patterns... Continue Reading →
