Feeling all Emoji-onal 

At last crafting emojis have happened. You can buy them in the App Store for around £1.99 and there are emojis for sewing, crochet, knitting, craft themed words and phrases including “shut up I’m counting” . The smiley faces are balls of yarn including a ninja ball. My crafting friend and I have been messaging […]

Celebration table runner

Occasionally I like to get the sewing machine out. Every birthday as I hang my home made bunting I feel a disappointment as I look at the table and there is only a disposable birthday table cloth in whatever theme I’ve chosen for the party. So when I saw a load of Dorma white linen […]

Recently while I was away celebrating Mr Husband’s birthday she had the responsibility of our rather lively dog Naughty Lucas teaching him to be nice to cats and even bringing him to work! (She does works as […]

And then the arduous task of sewing […]

We […]

The amazing V Stitch

Crochet bloggers are a very inspiring group of people! I think they must all either have full time staff to keep their tasteful homes clean and tidy,or be born with six pairs of hands to keep up to date designing, crocheting, photographing and blogging about their work. One of my favourites is The Patchwork Heart. I […]
