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.

Steph's birthday and the Noise

Hello lovely people, 
Welcome to my new followers too, my blog seems a bit higgledy piggledy at the moment with posts all over the place. It was a failed attempt at a bit of tidying up.  Onwards and upwards. 

It was Steph's birthday last week and I stitched her this Big Bang Theory quote (which sounds much better if you say it in a Sheldon voice!) 

I sent a little bundle of stuff too including a filled tin from Paperchase (best thing to happen to our city in ages) sweets, lipbalm, candles, socks  and a little sketchbook. 

Not the best photo, anyone else finding the clocks going back causing them  problems with their photography? If I haven't taken them by 4pm then the only place is our kitchen table with any degree in reasonable light. 

As many of you know I'm quite involved in my local church and this is what the youth did over half term in a project called The Noise which they did with 9 other church youth groups from across the city. Around 90 young people and 45 youth leaders did community projects like helping at food bank, a homeless day centre and visiting at elderly sheltered accommodation. They did 2 art installations on the high street. This is the before I die... one. 

So my question for you all is what would you put on the board? 

Before I die I want to...

Mine was get a degree and I did also put feed giraffes. 

That's all for today. I'm busy now with my  Christmas makes and I'm trying to put together a tutorial and a freebie design for the biscobell, so look out for those. 

Happy Sunday xx


  1. Before I die I want to , well what a very difficult thing this has been to think about. I could put something deep and meaningful and yes there are a billion and one things I could put down but to chose one thing very very difficult. So I will not go deep and meaningful and will put a crafty ambition Before I die I want to quilt a quilt Xxxxx Have a lovely week Leah

  2. ...be extremely old? ...use up all my stash? Same thing really. I LOVE the rock, paper, scissors, lizard, Spock finish

  3. Great stitching....what an interesting concept....hmmmm....before I die....I want to touch as many lives a possible and make each and every person feel loved and special

  4. Lovely stitching finish and goodies! I'm sure Steph loved it all :D

  5. Yes - all my photos will now be rubbish unless I am organised enough to take them at the weekend!

    I would put before I die I want to...

    1. Get a degree
    2. Run a marathon


  6. Love the Rock, Paper etc piece.
    Before I die I'd like to meet some of my blogging friends, a round the world tour would be good! Other than that I'd just like to see my son grow up and produce some grandchildren.

  7. A little bundle?! It was AMAZING! I loved everything,especially the Big Bang stitch. Thank you sooo much! XOX
