This blog was started in the first instance so that I could keep track of the things that I had been making. My first posts away back in 2007 had very little by way of what was going on in my life but instead featured recipes and tutorials on very simple projects. One of these days I’ll make a page which links to every tutorial and recipe I’ve ever posted – that’s what all the grown-up bloggers do
Anyway, what I was trying to get at is that over the last couple of years this space has moved away from the creativity to be honest. I can probably pinpoint that to when we started preparing to open the shop and every minute of my day was wrapped up with either parenting or the business. Now that we no longer have that concern I really have no excuse – except, there’s always an excuse isn’t there? There’s always something more important to be done.
This Christmas I was determined that it would be a time of serene family togetherness. We were going to stay around the house, eat together and laze around watching classic films and being generally creative – this year, it actually worked!
So – here is the first photo of hopefully my next finished project. It’s a quilt top which I’m going to make for Nairn’s birthday in March. The idea came directly from Pinterest and was made by Pippa who has an Etsy shop here. Check her out, she’s crazy talented.
