    Autumn is very definitely with us here in the UK. I love every season, but I think autumn might actually be my favourite. Crisp sunny days, blankets, fires, Strictly. What’s not to like? Plus, for the last couple of years autumn has also included Crovember. Even better. What is Crovember? What is Crovember, I hear you say? Well, quite simply it is a whole month (November) to celebrate the wonderful thing that is crochet. I started Crovember a couple of years ago to help motivate me and to get my cro-jo back.

    I don’t know about you, but I am so very glad May is over. It has been so grey and miserable it could almost have been January. I have so many me made clothes that I haven’t been able to…

    Me Made May 2021 Week Two

    If it wasn’t for Me Made May, I would have thought we had missed May and skipped straight to November. My time hop helpfully tells me that this time last year I was wearing vest tops and flip flops. Come…

    Me Made May 2021 Week one (and a bit)

    May is one of my favourite months. The days are getting longer, and it (usually) means the weather is getting warmer. Not this year though. My time hop helpfully shows me that this time last year I was wearing vest…

    Sky Blanket April Update

    I cannot believe we are now in May. The first few weeks of the year seemed to drag on endlessly, obviously not helped by the weather and lockdown. But now, suddenly we’re here. One third of the year done. And…

    Me Made May 2021

    I first discovered Me Made May, hosted by Zoe about six years ago. I had not long been sewing, and only had a couple of me made items in my wardrobe. My challenge was to wear one handmade item a…

    Sky Blanket: March Update

    Last Wednesday was the last day of March, and the last day before my kids broke up for the Easter holidays. They have only been back at school for three weeks and three days, but we were all so ready…
