Project Roundup

But before we get into the projects, it’s Sarah’s birthday today! Six years, and I still haven’t updated the party hats. She wanted to sit and read all day for her birthday, which is fair enough. And back to the projects: The Palace Library is coming along, slowly. This counter nook has my attention; I’ll…… Continue reading Project Roundup

Project Roundup

I have a few different things on the go at the moment; first is the cash register for The Palace Library, which is long overdue! Remember this jumper I made for Petra?

I love how they look like they’re draped over the white chain. I made three different snowflakes with three different coloured centres. There’s…… Continue reading Winter Garland
