I thought I’d use this quite far from productive week to share a project in my “to finish” pile, I started knitting this jumper far too long ago, and I would love to have it finished by the end of the year, I’d honestly settle for this time next year!
There will be a few regular posts appearing here on The Craft Room and Beyond each week or so, as well as each month, and one of those weekly (or possibly fortnightly) updates will be “On the Desk” each or every other Wednesday, where l will head into the craft room and share what I’m up to…
I love a chance to do some Christmas crafting! This year I get to make a gift for myself; thanks to Hobbycraft, gifting me everything I need to make my own Knitcraft Hug it Out scarf!
This post contains a gifted product, the content of this post is entirely my opinion, based on my personal experience.
There is something so special about giving a handmade gift; though of course it can be very time consuming an endeavour! Having an array of quick to make gifts to hand; can be great for last-minute ideas or emergencies. One easy, quick to make project is a knitted or crochet scarf.
I look forward to visiting the local Christmas market here in Truro every year; it’s always great fun and a great chance to see some wonderful handmade products made in Cornwall. I always try to do a bit of my Christmas shopping here; and there are usually some cheeky samples to enjoy too!
While I was having a wander, I thought I’d take some photos of some of the brilliant handmade products around the market! There were SO many stalls I didn’t get a chance to take photos of; as it was extremely busy, but here are a few things I loved!
The #CraftBlogClub upcycled challenge was launched at the end of March. This challenge is always good fun! Last time we had the challenge; in 2016; I was really pleased with my project; which of course I talked about in this post.
This time I actually upcycled several things. Some was planned, some just coincidental. So I thought I’d share them all in one post.
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!
