Fidgeting

16Mar17

I can’t think of a better word to describe my current crafting status. After a year of knitting lots of toys from Little Cotton Rabbits patterns, I’ve free fallen (is that a phrase?) into a few months of not being sure what to make next. I decided I should sew some of the pieces of tatting […]

I can’t believe how long it’s been since my last post. I was so productive, and then suddenly it all went to pot! Not entirely sure what’s been going on. This is just a quick catch up, really. I finished off this little fellow a couple of weeks ago. He’s sitting in an egg cup […]
