Last week I took out a sweater to wear and wanted a brooch for it. As I couldn't find one I wanted to wear I went downstairs and made a couple. I've been chasing these two kilt pins aoound my desk for years so it was about time they became something. Also each morning I… Continue reading March Snow
April Round Up
I've been meaning to write a blog post for ages but just haven't done it. I thought I'd better try and do one before the end of the month at least. First a quick round up of Crochet-a-Longs and Stitch-a-Longs. The Stitching Cabin Nordic Winter SAL is now up to band 4. I'm using a… Continue reading April Round Up
What a Blustery Day!
Earlier in the week, when looking ahead, we thought we were going to be out in the garden starting to put things away and deadhead the dahlias. Then we saw the weather forecast! With howling winds and heavy rain I just tucked myself at my table and made a little tri-fold book. It was nice… Continue reading What a Blustery Day!

We've pottered in the garden when we can but there is a really horrible east wind and it's not nice staying out there too long. Frosts have returned too so lots of covering up and bringing… Continue reading Ugly Done
A Belated Happy Easter!
No matter your religion Easter is usually a time for families and the first proper gathering of the year, especially if the weather is good. This year must have been hard for many people. Again I am thankful for the instant sharing of photos and communications! Yay for the Internet! I have been working on… Continue reading A Belated Happy Easter!
Just Keeping Busy
After finishing the Hygge I was left with quite a lot of the Catona yarn. It was in the Rainbow colourway so this morning I made our rainbow from the leftovers. There’s not too many people in the village and not many children at all but it’s our little bit of hope in the window… Continue reading Just Keeping Busy
