Which is all good and exciting, until I realised that her current bedroom is half the size of the current spare room. UH OH! Time…

    finding the perfect project bag

    Like many crafters I know, I never very rarely have just one project on the go. At the time of writing I have five (possibly more *whistles*) WIPs of varying sizes, and I work on whichever one is appropriate for…
