Liberty Lampshade Tutorial

I’ve been wanting to make a new lampshade for my bedside lamp for some time now. I had a plain white shade which was so dull and uninspiring, I wanted something I would actually enjoy seeing every morning and evening! I saw this lovely lampshade on the Liberty Craft Blog which gave me inspiration to…

When H visited the other week I helped to set her up with all the stuff she needed to get started with a tapestry project. I realised that perhaps other people would be interested in creating their own tapestries too but don’t know how or where to start so I decided to create  some blog…

Untitled-7

After watching the Great British Sewing Bee and seeing all the dreses they made on the first episode I decided I needed to face my fears and make my first dress. I picked up a pattern in a half price sale (£4 – bargain) and bought cheap fabric so I didn’t have too much to lose by…

Knitted Necklace

DSC_0038.JPG_effected

This necklace happened completely by accident. I was trying to make another knitted headband but was using stocking stitch (knit and purl alternate rows) and the band curled.

Happy Tuesday to you all! It’s a beautiful, sunny morning where I am – I’m hoping this weather is going to last throughout the week as H is coming to stay tomorrow! The last time we saw each other we went to Berlin and it was freezing. We’ve got lots planned including making (and drinking)…
