And for my next project…

25 May


Remember that weekend I went to visit my Mum in Hastings? Well of course I couldn’t go home empty handed and after rummaging through all the old family treasure in the attic I came away with this sweet nursery frieze that can recall from my childhood. It needs a bit of love so I’m going to paint a patch for the top right hand corner to fill in a few details and have a new piece of glass cut for the frame but then it should be ready to hang in Henry’s room. I also have a big haul of story books dating from back in the day, some classics like ‘The Tiger who came to Tea’ and other ground breaking stuff of its time and they have happily joined Henry’s nursery after a dusty 20 year stretch in storage. Have you got any childhood things of yours that you can share with the next generation?

Will You Be Knitting Your Own Royal Wedding? *

1 Apr

Come on all you patriotic knitters out there, only 28 days left to knit your way through the entire wedding party including the blushing bride, the Archbishop of Canterbury and a couple of corgis of course. I found this book browsing Amazon and had to share it with you in case you were to miss such an important way of commemorating THE wedding of the year. Its by Fiona Goble and you can rush to get your copy here.



Sadly my knitting skills are not up to rendering HRH The Queen or His Grace through the medium of wool but I shall certainly be buying the book based on this review alone.


And by the by * THIS IS NOT AN APRIL’S FOOL.


Fantastic Find…
