My holiday cushion project

I’ve had some time off and during this time I could quickly complete another project.  I quite enjoyed doing this project as it is the first time with beads and although I had to stop for a day to drive to Totnes to go and get some more beads. I do think it came out…

One lonely little sheep

I’ve made myself a lovely minimalist pillow case so I had to make another one so my hubby can also have a ‘matching’ pillow case. This is what I came up with.  I hope he does not count the sheep to go to sleep…

Needle felting

One evening during create night at Make140 my wonderful husband bought my daughter a needle felting kit.  After that I just had to get myself one.  I got a cheap little kit at Hobby Craft and did it what I managed to make in a few hours.

Old crafts

It has been a very very long time since I’ve done embroidery.  I almost think I haven’t done that since I had kids, and both my kids are in their twenties now. There is this fantastic new place called MakeAt140 and on Wednesday evening they have a creative night where you can go and be creative,…

Graduation cupcakes

I quickly made these graduation cupcakes.  Unfortunately I did not have a lot of time to spend on it so it is a bit thrown together, but I do think it came out nicely.  I really need to find a nice icing recipe, although mine is tasty I don’t find it that easy to squeeze onto…

Cookie The Cat

I am a beginner crocheter and this was my first pattern project.  I must admit, I really enjoyed it and I think my cats are very happy with the result!  Especially the catnip in the head of the cat.

Home made nut butter

I love making my own organic nut butter!  It is so easy. Just roast, blend, add a touch of salt, eat!

Intermediate Pottery

I’ve enjoyed the Beginners Pottery short course at Plymouth College of Art so much that I just had to go back and do the Intermediate Pottery class.  It is just so much fun! At the end of this I will have so many pots and I am not sure what to do with it all….

Snack time

I love making Deliciously Ella‘s raw energy bites.  Definitely a lovely healthy organic, chocolaty snack in between meals.  The last batch I’ve dusted with raw coco powder and it is so yummy! Here is a link to her online recipe, it is also in the cookbook (that is the one I use – without baobab).  Even…

Weekly pose

Ben, my British short hair tabby, just love to pose! His brother, Eddie, not so much!
