Of course last week seeming craftless ish wasn’t helped by me having the dread lurgy and posting a day earlier than usual. John decided to join in with the sneezing and general nose blowing so we’ve had a wonderful week! This year is Dorset Art Weeks and I also have another exhibition to do some… Continue reading When You’re Doing Your Own Head In.
I’ve had a merge week. You know the ones where you blink and they’re gone and for the life of you, you can’t think why, how or after doing what?

Washing and blocking is very much worth it though especially with this tapestry crochet. The stitches all needed to find their place and proper shape. As… Continue reading Roseta is Finished!
I haven’t chosen a word for this year. I’ve done it for a number of years and lately it’s been to ‘Use’ up what I have and I’m loving doing so I’m going to just carry on trying not to buy and do that. Saying that I did actually buy new yarn for the baby… Continue reading Mid January
