Very Berry Knitting (Part 1)

I’m feeling oddly motivated at the moment; and I thought I’d use that motivation for a little more craft time! I’ve always got something on the go, and I thought I’d try and get back on the needles; with some very berry knitting!

On the desk...

So here goes with another crafty project at the beginning of the year! Though I’m thinking small and easy to accomplish this time, because I always have a habit of starting things but not finishing them!

Pumpkin Carving – Blogtober 2020

Who’s been carving pumpkins? We have actually decided not to do a pumpkin carving this year, mostly because I usually do it so people know they can trick or treat at our house, as locally, people only visit decorated houses.

There is still some fun though we have got some decorations for the window for anyone pumpkin spotting in the area!

I thought I’d share some of my past creations, and a fun hanging pumpkin sign I made for the window!

So unlike any before; I’ve found myself getting more into bringing a little Spooky Season into the house.

Butterflies and Music Circle Skirt

It’s been a while since I’ve done any sewing. Finally the sewing machine has been dragged out of its corner; for a bit of making. Which all started when I rediscovered this fabric I had, with a pretty butterflies and music note print

This is just a sharing post really, as I had a sewing day fairly recently, and made another circle skirt! As a music lover, I spotted this pretty fabric with music notes and bright coloured butterflies and had to buy it!

Alphabet Sampler -TBT Projects

I don’t have any craft projects planned so far this year! I’m sure I’ll think of something soon; but right now I’m enjoying relaxing and movie watching! So, in the meantime; here is a Throwback Thursday post to share one of the first big cross-stitch projects I completed, this fun alphabet sampler!

Throwback Thursday

I have a great love of cross-stitching a variety of different images, from classic florals, to simple cartoony images in few colours. Mini kits and large samplers. This is a large piece, from before I’d worked on many large projects, which is one of the reasons it is a favourite. It’s not perfect or hugely pretty, but it was a big step for me at the time!
