Nottingham Yarn Expo

Hello Creatives! As an ecologist my job takes me all over with lots of overnight stays, and the last location I was placed at was Leicestershire! The area of Leicestershire that I was based at was only 45 minutes away from my old home grounds of Nottingham, and coincidentally was also over the days of…

Life at 100 Miles an Hour

Hello Creatives, Our move to Bristol has been relatively smooth, however I’ve not had 10 minutes to sit down yet! As I managed to bag myself a part time job, I’m currently sat in a hotel room in Leicestershire after 4 days of working as an Ecologist on some of our sites, with my suitcase…

Goodbye Nottingham, Hello Bristol!

Hello Creatives, Wow it has been complete madness since the beginning of October.. I left on a solo trip on the 6th October to Malaysia to visit family that I hadn’t seen in 6+ years and surprised my last grandparent – I’ll do a blog post all about it, it was hectic, but amazing! I…

And breath….

Hello Creative! Guess what?! MY MASTERS DEGREE IS COMPLETE! That feels sooooooooo good to say! I submitted my thesis last Monday, celebrated so hard that it took me 2 days to recover, and now I’m enjoying all the guilt free sofa time! I popped to our local Aldi (a cheap supermarket, for those who don’t…

Army Surplus Store!

Hello Creatives, So you may or may not know that George is very into Airsoft and attends many events across the country. This is the second half to the Bristol Travel Blog Post! – as i dont have any photos of george during the Stirling Airsoft Military Simulation event that he attended in Caerwent whilst…

Beautiful Bath

Hello Creatives, Are you ready for the next part of the travel blog post series!? So this one will be in two parts, and the reason for this is because two main events happened over the few days that we stayed in Bristol! We travelled down to Bristol as George had a Military Simulation Airsoft…

Surprises in London!

Hello Creatives, So this is the next post in my travelling/life update series and could possibly be my favourite! I was meant to be catching the train down to London to meet up with one of my bestfriends Liya to spend the weekend with her as it was apparently the ‘only weekend she was free’…

This Little Welsh Seaside Town

Hello Creatives! And here is the second part to my travelling series! Long story short, George didn’t/couldn’t attend last years graduation ceremony for his undergraduate degree although he did manage to begin his masters degree in the meantime! Therefore, we had graduation number 1 for 2017 on July the 19th, and his second graduation will…

I Don’t Know About You… But I’m Feeling TWENTY TWO!

Hello Creatives!He’s post number 1 of my recent travel’s (im hoping to post one a day!). If you have no idea what i’m on about and have wondered where the crochet has escaped to, have a catch up here! So as i was selecting photos to add, i realised just how many i had from this…

Where Have I Been?

Hello Creatives! So unfortunately, my crochet has been put to one side fo a while, due to the fact that i have been ridiculously busy with my masters research proejct…. well, i should have been but instead ive been a social butterfly (the masters research project is currently throwing my stress level through the roof however)….

I Tried Rug Punching!

Hello Creatives! So I've heard many names (I believe latch hooking may be one?) and seen different techniques but I've given it a go with what I have, and I have found that I love Rug Punching! I've also found it's a great way to use old scraps of yarn that are too short to…

My First Crochet Pillowcase

Hello Creatives! On the 2nd of July it was my 22nd birthday so George and I decided to jump on a plane to Spain to spend it with my family! I really wanted to bring a gift along with me, but had been so busy that I hadn’t been able to pick anything up, so…
