After a weekend of planning, I am finally building a little kitchen in Sarah's apartment. Here it is as of the end of yesterday: And here are the modules at the end of today: (the left is for cupboards and the black box will be a stove) (and on the left here is the fridge,… Continue reading Kitchen Renovations
Fairest and Stars Above came in the week, and naturally I devoured them both in a few days. I love the mirror on the front of Fairest, I just think it looks wonderfully old and tarnished and on fire. The picture doesn't do it justice, it is truly stunning. Gosh, I loved Stars Above! A lot of… Continue reading My Stars, New Books!

Just putting the final staining wash on now and... Finished! And with a caddy to keep it all in, too. The silver bits on the paintbrushes are aluminium foil, which went on easier than I thought it would.

Well, I had four mini puppies to welcome home on Friday, and let me tell you, it is extremely hard to make collars for four very wiggly little dogs. These two Boxers are named (from left… Continue reading Puppies
Blimey, I haven't done one of these in a while! This one won't be long, as I don't have many projects on the go at the moment. Amigurumi Iko: Nearly there, she just needs arms and a necklace. Knitted socks: Just finished the gusset of the second sock and have started the foot. I did… Continue reading Project Roundup
This is the Breyer half of the pictures I took on the beach, as Lola and Tiger volunteered to come with me. Along with all my other horses. 😀 This was Lola's first time on holidays, and she had a great time! She was running up and down the shoreline, chasing the waves around while… Continue reading Beach Pictures Part 2
