Blanket Revisited

Long-time readers may remember this blanket of Sarah’s: I love the colours, but not the construction methods for this one, so I thought this week I’d re-make it into something better. Like this! It’s longer than Sarah’s other miniature blanket, so perfect for covering the entire bed on cold nights. The colours are already suited…… Continue reading Blanket Revisited

Wednesday was Petra’s birthday…. ….which she was happy to spend among the plants. As for what I’m making, I’ve got this little square pot on the go, for some storage in my wardrobe.

I did…… Continue reading Christmas Earrings

These buttons were free with a magazine a while ago – the one on the right is peachier in real…… Continue reading Finished Cushion Cover

Project Roundup

My bakery’s front fa├žade is coming along slowly – here we’ve got the exterior brickwork done…. ….and the addition of a window. The plan is to have the name of the bakery painted onto the glass of the window, which will hopefully look really good! I’m also sewing together all the squares for my cushion…… Continue reading Project Roundup
