Oh blimey...

It seems I have been nominated for a craft blog award by Company Magazine.  The link to vote is here, scroll down to the 'crafty girls' section.


I'm finding it quite amusing that it's under the umbrella of 'style blogger'.  Style is not a word I feel I associate with given the number of times I've done the school run with my PJ's under a big coat.  Note to self, must make more effort!

I am still here!

We've just taken a couple of weeks out to give the house a bit of a sort out.  The loft (attic?, we call it a loft here in the UK) needed emptying as we're having new insulation fitted which will hopefully keep the house warmer.  Bit nervous about it all though as we don't have a good track record when it comes to going in our loft...


due to Al having put his foot through the ceiling in my sewing room.  His slipper landed on my desk!

Back soon with some actual sewing, I promise.

Here, it's the latest edition of the online magazine from Crafteroo,


as well as the pattern for the cutest amigurumi elephant ever, there's a pattern for the first in a series of Penguins,


the magazine is available from here and is only £1.50 (that's $2.34).

Start the year off with a bit of sewing!
