  • 11/29/16--13:10: Winter crochet projects
  • Brr, it's FREEZING and it is Definitely Winter now! This month I've been busy making things to keep me warm. My Boho blanket is over a year old and still not finished, but I'm determined it will be before the year's out! Plus, I'm overcoming my Fear of Wearables and having a go at a crochet jumper. Thoughts of the Granny Square Disaster cardigan shall be banished forever! Continue reading

  • 03/08/17--13:29: Winter Crochet Report
  • Winter is ALMOST over, hurray! And it’s feeling pretty spring-like here: the crocuses are out even if it IS still a bit chilly.  But I have braved the March winds and emerged from my hibernation, and I thought I’d begin … Continue reading

  • Last month me and my Craftsy Adventures pal Cy went off to check out the WonderWool Wales show at Builth Wells, a celebration of British wool and all its related woolly crafts. It covered a staggering THREE halls and even though we were there all day we didn't get round it all. Here's some of our highlights! Continue reading

    The sun has been shining here in the Marches this past week, and I've been continuing to work on transforming my garden from Patch of Weedy Rubble to Organic Permaculture Paradise! All with as little exertion as possible and no budget, as usual! Mostly the garden is looking after itself now, but I had one last Problem Area to tackle. It took a week, lots of OMs (organic materials) and some serious stomping, but now it's all done and I even made a video to show you! Continue reading

  • 11/30/17--12:47: All the New Things
  • My year has been so busy and I've had lots of New Stuff going on - a new house and garden, a stall on the craft market, our local craft group, and lots of experimenting with felt, beads, and all things stitchy! It's been lots of fun but things are going a bit quiet for the winter (I hope!), so I thought it high time I got blogging again. Continue reading

    Before the snow arrived this morning, I'd been busy in my garden this week planting shrubs and fruit trees. I have some new videos up on my gardening channel, showing what the garden looked like when I arrived here, and charting my Progress So Far. Let any of you faced with a weedy neglected patch take heart: it CAN be transformed, a little at a time, and you don't have to do lots of digging... honest! Continue reading

  • 12/10/17--08:10: Folk Art bird house feeder
  • One of my recent housewarming presents was a lovely wooden bird house feeder that came with a little set of kids' paints to snazz it up. But did I stop there? Haha! You KNOW the answer .... Continue reading
