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….
