As the song from Gilmore Girls says “So welcome to my little corner of the world”. It’s all about me and my crafting – focusing around my love for stitching and sewing along with anything else that catches my eye. So welcome, grab a coffee and happy reading.

So much to tell...pt 1

Hi everyone,

I've drawn the next recipient of the travelling pattern, so it is now on it's way up north to Sam. you can visit Sam's blog here.

 It's been a busy week so I shall fill you in on some today and tell you about my day with Laura and my first lesson in crochet tomorrow.

This week started with my friend's daughter starting high school this week so I made her a little bag tag. I put stars on it as Carenza really is one. She's not really a girly girl so blue seemed a good idea.

As readers of Laura's blog will know too, it was her 1st wedding anniversary today so I made a little biscornu for her and her husband. The pattern was one I found on Pinterest. I’ve quite fancied doing a biscornu like this with a coloured fabric and white thread, so it was a joy to do (Except for the bit where I miscounted and had to re-stitch some of it!)

I shall be back on the Hello Kitty biscornu now which was one of my 101/1001. I’ve made a bit of progress this week and finished another book (the Iron Horse by Edward Marston) and started an Agatha Raisin. Thomas and I have been reading Danny The champion of the world too. It’s my favourite Roald Dahl book and I’m enjoying it so much.

That's all for today, tomorrow I'll fill you in on meeting fellow blogger Laura, learning to crochet and my hexagon quilt (oh yes it has begun!) Have a good weekend. xx


  1. LOVE the biscornu - might have to try one myself now I've recaught the stitching bug. Sounds like you're making good progress with the 101/1001 too. I loved all the Roald Dahl books when I was a kid.

  2. Congratulation to Sam
    I Always love everything you make:)
    Love for you xxx

  3. Wow, I love the biscornu! I really fancy having a go at one myself ☺ I'll have to place an online order pretty soon. Mii, x

  4. Yay! I can't wait! Do you have my addy? Can't remember, I'll be in touch! And thanks for the link to my blog, I'm looking for more followers!

  5. Congrats to Sam for getting the pattern next. Love my biscornu, thank you again! Very sweet bag charm :-)

  6. I love the biscornu you made for Laura, and the bag tag is really lovely. I like the star buttons all over it.


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. :-)
