How I organise my yarn! 

Hello creatives!  So up until a week ago, my yarns were A MESS. I kept getting new baskets to put it al in, but because I’m not organised enough they’d get all tangled and I’d forget half of the stuff I owned because I couldn’t see it! I’m sure you’ve all been there… But after…

I tried C2C Crochet! 

Hello creatives,  So I’ve finally handed in my final assignment for my masters degree (minus my research project/thesis/dissertation which is due in September)! Yay! So obviously, the first thing I did was pick up my crochet hooks and see what I could try!  So after seeing so many people on Instagram doing corner to corner,…

My very first stall!

Hello creatives,  Long time no see/write! I’ve been super duper stressed with my masters second semester deadlines fast approaching (and counting for a third of my masters degree 😭!). However, I have been busy crocheting away as today I held my first stall!  It was held at my university campus, and was the first of…

I Tried Tunisian Crochet!

Hello, Creatives! So I’ve recently given Tunisian Crochet a go, and I absolutely love it! I’m currently doing it on regular crochet hooks, but my Tunisian Crochet hooks are on their way in the post! I love how similar it looks to knitting, but isn’t!  Here’s theee different stitches I’ve managed so far (I can’t…

My first commissioned piece!

Hello creatives, So recently I was asked if I could help out with a birthday present. They said they looked everywhere for a nice toy camel but couldn’t find anything nice or cheap enough to give as a birthday present, so they approached me! ME!  Now as you may have seen, I have only ever made…

Picking myself up again

Hello creatives, If you read my last post you’ll know that the past few weeks haven’t been easy. However, the way I have coped is by keeping my mind busy (or else everything hits me like a truck and I’m a sobbing mess). It may not work for everyone, but I thought I’d let you…

Heartache

I lost my warrior.  My grandmother was the cheekiest, purest soul.  She left this world with me by her side at 4.05am on the 2nd of March 2017 in a very peaceful manner.  She put up such a fight, but unfortunately, it was a battle she wasn’t going to win at the beautiful age of…

Tragedy & Kind People

Hello creatives, Today is difficult. Today is not how I’d planned today. Wednesday evening I was flying to Spain from Nottingham, yesterday afternoon I was travelling back home to Scotland, and now I am sat at the bedside of my warrior, my grandma.  If you read my Reflection post you’ll know that my beautiful grandma has…

And I’m off!

Sooo I really wanted to put up another update post before today, but typical me left it last minute, and now I’m finding myself in the queue to board my flight to Spain attempting to get my post up! Silly silly me… Well here’s a mini update, as I’ll put a proper one when I…

It can’t just be me..?

Hello Creatives! So I just neeeeed to vent on my situation with my crochet projects!  First of all, I am a completely impatient person with ADHD..  So, when it comes to crocheted items that come in a pair, I am so excited to get one done (I’m currently half way through mittens!) and will complete…

Project and life update… 12/02/17

Hello creatives, So I’ve been really slow with progressing on any projects recently! With having my masters research project proposal due, and being between cars whilst mine was in the garage, I’ve been slacking! Throughout the night last night my other half was up every hour after being hit with his third lot of norovirus!…
