Apologies for my absence folks! I'm afraid I've been very bogged down with work lately - and still am. I just wanted to reassure you all that I am still here. I have been reading all your posts and commenting so hopefully that's some proof! I just haven't really had the time to take photos… Continue reading I’m still here!
It is my birthday today, so obviously yesterday I just had to finish off Maya so I could wear her today (and please do excuse the awful late-night photography!) And please forgive the awkward long arm selfie. She fits beautifully and I know it's going to be hard not to wear her everyday - as… Continue reading Happy Birthday to Me!
Last weekend, I went with some friends to see Trooping the Colour! It was such an amazing day, especially for massive royal fans like me, although I got up at some unearthly hour to attend (which meant that when we arrived, no public toilets were open - but we eventually found a Pret a Manger which… Continue reading Trooping the Colour

Just look at her! Isn't the stitch pattern beautiful? (Ignore the incredibly old and un-beautiful towel beneath!) I credit the steam blocking that I tried out using the lovely Jayda's YouTube tutorial. I've never done it before and I was nervous because I was scared the yarn might melt - though it's pure cotton so there… Continue reading Trying Out Steam Blocking
Hmmm quite a mixture of emotions is this post! Shall we go in order, then? Naming I've decided on the name for my lacy top which I introduced a few weeks back: The stitch pattern reminds me of the Aztecs - perhaps it's the colour or maybe the squares and geometrical look - but that's… Continue reading Naming, Ranting and Joking
I've just read this this blog post from Crochet Concupiscence and was touched by the heartfelt message in the story. Kathryn, who runs the blog, is doing such a great job raising awareness of depression. Well done 🙂 Enjoy your day everyone! And remember that every little counts!
Hello everybody! I hope you're all having some lovely weather wherever you are. We certainly are where I am in the UK. Tomorrow it's supposed to get to 25 degrees-C!! And we had snow about 2 weeks ago!! It's absolutely crazy! Anyway, I wanted to let you all see the progress on my Laced Cream… Continue reading Updates
Hello people! I bet you've all forgotten about this one! Are you ready? Really ready? Sure? Okay, here we are... The big reveal... Drumroll please... This is a jacket that's been in the works since...oooh...about January. I've only posted about it once. The pattern is designed by Ruth Maddock and I got the pattern from… Continue reading Being Extravagant
