“This is the new playsuit I ordered from my friend at Madam Malkins’!” I wanted to see if I could put pockets in one of Sarah’s playsuits, and Sarah also really liked this fabric. As you can probably see, these pockets aren’t actually visible from the front of the shorts, which I’m very happy…… Continue reading Unboxing
I’ve been busy assembling a variety of different-sized parcel boxes recently, for packages both great and small. The boxes match the postage tube and envelope that I made previously. Maybe we need to open a post office in Diagon Alley…. hmm…… The reason I made these is because Sarah got a delivery today! “When did…… Continue reading You’ve Got Mail
When I mentioned ‘minor adjustments’ I wanted to make to the TARDIS, I meant I wanted to update the pillars, as they were finished in a rush. They’re now significantly taller, and closed at the end, which looks so much better than having them open! These bases also mean this set is as close…… Continue reading Pillars of Completion…?
I’ve been meaning to replace the hood on Sarah’s 13th Doctor coat for a while, as it was originally made with too-small scraps, and I finally got round to it. This new one sits much better over the shoulders, and it fits over her head! I’m also making another birds’ nest in this orange yarn,…… Continue reading Project Roundup
After one year and 170 hexagons, the TARDIS set is, finally, COMPLETE. Just quietly, there are still bits I want to nitpick, but I won’t talk about those because it’s FINISHED and I need a break. ;D Sarah loves it just as much as I do, and she’s very excited to go exploring in it!…… Continue reading Complete TARDIS!
With Christmas comes gifts, and in my case, a lot of those are books. Below are all the books I acquired in the second half of 2019 – thank you! Sarah also received books this year – she’s been wanting to finish reading the Renegades trilogy for a while! Big and small Heartstoppers! She also received…… Continue reading New Year, New Books
The TARDIS walls are coming along nicely! I should be on schedule to have them finished by the start of season 12 on New Year’s Day. I thought this looked really cool, with the light blue against black. Big stack of hexagons ready to go on the walls, like the picture below: Above is where…… Continue reading Project Roundup
I've been making Christmas biscuits! Thankfully, the icing set in time to photograph them. There's four of each biscuit, and we've got presents, wreaths and Santa hats. I also made a jar/canister for them all (mostly so they're easy to store in the mini Christmas box). Sarah's favourites are the Santa hats! Personally, I'm proud… Continue reading Christmas Biscuits
The Three Broomsticks has brought out some new drinks to (try to) battle the heat! It's super hot at the moment, so Sarah requested some smoothies to cool down. I made four flavours: mango, strawberry, apple and banana & blueberry. They've all got little paper straws too - I'm very proud of these! I made… Continue reading Smooth Summer
You know the whole 'ugly Christmas jumper' thing the Northern Hemisphere has? Well, I wanted to try making one, but as it's summer in Australia, I had to modify the idea a little to make an 'ugly Christmas T-shirt'. I didn't do very well on the 'ugly' part - I think it looks quite nice!… Continue reading Off Duty Elf
