So I went and upgraded my pastel pin display……. Over Christmas I did a tiny bit of embroidery on a pin display hoop for a friend. I haven’t embroidered for years, but doing that little bit really gave me a taste for it. I’ve had a Sublime Stitching craft pad sitting on a bookcase for absolutely ages so I dug it out and had a … Continue reading Another Pin Display….
My recent pin haul from Thought Bubble and the arrival of the most recent Pin Club pin meant it was time to think of a new way of displaying my pin collection. I mean look at my current storage….it’s not a great situation. Here’s what I came up with. I think these frames look really cute. They can be made using any scrap fabric you … Continue reading Pin Display Tutorial
Title: Paper Girls Writer: Brian K. Vaughan. Illustrator: Cliff Chiang & Matt Wilson. Publisher: Image I can’t remember the exact reason I added Paper Girls to my pull list.

It all started when I found a couple of patches I’d ordered a from 8-bit Zombie before Christmas last year. At the time I had put … Continue reading Patches & Pins
I’m renowned for wasting my bank holiday’s. I usually make a long list of things I’m going to get done and then spend the majority of the bank holiday napping and eating way to much. This bank holiday I didn’t write a list and I ended up doing LOADS! Here’s what I got up to (shock horror – it doesn’t involve eating chocolate!) Friday: Friday … Continue reading Easter Shenanigans
I don’t usually go in for Valentine shenanigans. My husband and I have probably exchanged Valentine cards three times in the whole time we’ve been together. In the past I’ve looked at Valentine as being a commercial affair that I’ll happily steer clear of. However, this year a friend of mine invited me to a “Galentines” party. While I’m not a massive fan of the … Continue reading Valentines
