Very Berry Knitting Complete (Part 2)

Yes, you read it here first, very berry knitting complete! I’ve actually managed to finish something I started! I know, I’m impressed too!

On the desk...

Though I will say; I have since made something else; which I’ll be sharing next week; to use up the remaining yarn (It STILL didn’t!) but I’m at least quite proud that I’ve used a fair bit of it!

Cross Stitch – Love Tree (Part 1)

On the desk is back! I’m planning on being a little more realistic this year though! With motivation in mind, I thought I’d start the year with a new cross-stitch project; this is one kit I’ve had lined up for a while, Love Tree from Bothy Threads.

On the desk...

I didn’t really get into any stitching last year, and so I do need to finish The Scarf, but I thought starting fresh with a new project would motivate me. So let me introduce you to my current project…

This Week #20 Back to Work, Enjoying the Sunshine and the Last of Chill Time

Well, it’s getting back to normal time for me; this week our store reopens (today in fact); so I’m back to work, and I’ll be heading back to a sort-of normal routine!

This Week

I’m off today; so we’re enjoying the very last of the good weather having booked a time-slot at my favourite National Trust property; Lanhydrock. Though of course the house remains closed, we plan on having a nice walk around the gardens and woodland there for a bit!

Getting to Know the Cricut EasyPress 2 *

Want to work with iron-on vinyl, making your own t-shirts, home accessories and more? You should try the Cricut EasyPress 2.

This is a sponsored conversation; written by me on behalf of Cricut. The following opinions and text are all my own.

Getting to know the Cricut EasyPress 2

I will be completely honest, I have never given much thought to iron-on projects. This isn’t to say I’ve never had the idea; I was under the impression; that Iron-on projects are too complex. As well as something at risk of being a bit of a fad, that I’d pay out for; before becoming bored with it; not using it or getting distracted with something else. 

This being the case, I haven’t really been aware of products to do this at home, though of course I know you can do certain projects at home with an iron. I don’t know the first thing about materials or methods…

This Month – April 2018

Hey! So it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these random chatty posts; but as of last night things are occurring! So I have some fun announcement type stuff, and some more happening here on the blog this month…

This Month

This is definitely a fun post and I’ve tried to give it a little clarity; because I’m sure you don’t want me rambling on nonsensically as I try to explain what’s happening this month!

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!
