finding the perfect project bag

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 the amount of time I […]

I’ve had some t-shirt yarn in my stash for a while now, just waiting for the right project to come along. And then, just like that, inspiration struck the other day. The dog needed a new basket for his growing collection of toys so I […]

After a couple of quiet weeks I have had a burst of creativity, and there are lots of projects on the go. In complete contrast to the gorgeously soft granny square baby blanket I finished a couple of days ago, I have been working with […]
