2019 will be the year I keep my blog up to date!
Life gets in the way but I promise I will try.
Thoroughly enjoying crafting at the moment and have just started my first Crochet Along, Sweet Pea courtesy of the wonderful Lucy Attic 24.
Is it just me or does everyone have a craft corner in every room?
Taking advantage of a well earned day off, I have spent a blissful afternoon with Esmeralda.
She has been so forgiving of my stopping and starting, huffing and puffing.
Finally after a few false starts..let me present.. vintage skirts for my grand daughters…
I have followed the Www.danamadeit.com you tube video with just a few alterations e.g seams were made using a mock French seam.
The material used was Cath Kidston Rosali from the IKEA Wednesbury store.
For my birthday, I became the proud owner of a Singer Tradition sewing machine. I have named her Esmeralda and I am sure we are going to become firm friends. Over the past few weeks I have battled with bobbins and puckered fabric. Finally I have completed my first project..’The 20 minute skirt’.
I am so proud. My inspiration came from the craft and inspiration blog Ruffles & Stuff…..now back to my crochet!
Recently finished a pom pom beanie for my next grand child due in August.
I followed a beanie pattern on Stitch n Ting blog site with the addition of a single row of double crochet to finish it off and pom poms made with the fab Clover large pom pom maker.
