To me they both sound like brands of weedkiller, so I decided not to go with it. So let’s have a look at this “maternity plantain renfrew hack”. On the face of it, this looks like quite a… Read More A maternity plantain renfrew hack
After my last post I would seem to be on an accessory-roll. But in fact this scarf / cowl has been about 10 months in the making (so my ravelry notes tell me). Not 10 months of continuous knitting though. I put it down about half way through and then only picked it up a couple… Read More Eternidad scarf – an eternity of knitting…
Hello there! I hope you’re having a good weekend. Mine so far has been dominated by almost killing my sewing machine and getting a strange waxy slimy feeling on my hands… But it was all for a good cause! I made a new bag! This is the Walden Cooper by Colette. Apparently I have almost no… Read More Walden cooper in waxed canvas
Hello there! It feels like a while since I last wrote a blog post, and I’ve missed it! I have actually been sewing quite a lot, but for one reason or another it hasn’t appeared. We went away to Wales for 10 days, and had a great time, but no sewing took place there. Since… Read More Mmmmmm fabric…
Hello everyone! I hope you’re enjoying the summer (or winter, if you’re all the way down south!) so far. We’re in North Wales at the moment, having a great time. And yesterday afternoon, the weather was so nice I got to wear this! My new Colette Moneta. After my first moneta, which I liked the… Read More Colette Moneta: take 2….
For some reason I have a big urge not to like things that everybody else likes. Obviously that’s a bit daft, because often the reason everybody likes something because it’s good! Nevertheless, I stubbornly refuse to have any part in it, until one day I break down. This is most definitely the case with the… Read More Oogie-boogie Washi woman
Well, I didn’t expect to be blogging about this any time soon (or maybe even any time ever!), but here is a Deer and Doe Bruyère, in a checked brushed cotton. I had been eyeing up the Bruyère (which means ‘heather’ it turns out – my middle name. It was meant to be.) since Deer and… Read More Deer and Doe Bruyère
Hello all! If you’re in the UK I hope you’re enjoying our actual summer, and stayed safe during the thunderstorms. If you’re from anywhere else, you probably laugh at our piddly 30 degrees and our measly little thunderstorms! But please humour us. Here’s a dress I’ve been enjoying for a couple of weeks, but only just… Read More Chambray Southport dress
I’m not usually one to wear gold! But I was in a frivolous mood, and this gold spotty ponte roma was on sale in Backstitch (none left now though I’m afraid) and that was enough to tip me over the edge. I only got about 1.25m of it, but that was enough to squeeze out a… Read More Colette Moneta… in gold!
