This Week I’m Loving …

It’s been a while since I filled you in on the things I’m loving – family life is “full on” just now and time in front of the laptop has to take a back seat. That’s exactly  the way it should be, but I wanted to take few moments to share a couple of special things with you.

First off, if you haven’t discovered Urvashi’s blog yet, go take a look, writing as the Botanical Baker you may recognise her from the Great British Bake Off. Her recipes and posts are an inspiration and I’ve been loving her posts about Mexico this week.

Secondly, I’ve been busy partnering up those of you taking part in the Snail Mail Holiday Swap I’m running with my lovely pal Emma. I can’t wait to see what you all come up with to make for your swaps. Special thanks to Jemma, Sarah, Heike, Dawn, Charlotte and  Ali for signing up. Emma will be setting up a Flickr group so swappers can post photos and everyone taking part will be getting an email from us soon with a reminder of the “rules”. I’m busy knitting for my swap partner – but there will be no sneaky peeks here I’m afraid!

Finally, I’m loving this gorgeous shawl I have just finished. Destined to be a special gift  for a very special lady about to embark on the adventure we call Motherhood.

Well, that’s it for now. Next time I’ll be back with news from the allotment.

Happy making (and baking).

  • My favourite make - this woman - my daughter. Wearing handmade of course! Celebrate spring with a floral pin cushion! There's a link in my profile with all the details, free pattern & more ideas for Mothers Day gifts 
#crochet #crochetgirlgang #crochetconcupiscence #crochetaddict #crochetgifts #freepattern #bakingandmaking Finally some crochet! Five years ago I designed these little bags for the  wool shop where I worked I  still make them for wrapping presents - so much nicer (& more sustainable) than paper or plastic.  Link in my profile for details & free pattern.

I've hung this on my kitchen wall, rather pleased with this simple print of 3 plants from my garden (the middle one is from the tiny christmas tree we were given in December at Delamere Forest) 
#cyanotype #sunprint #surfacepattern #inmygarden #bakingandmaking #delamereforest Garden plants & British wool = a beautiful washing line! Hurrah for fresh young nettles, alder cones & winter onion skins!

#crochetdesigner #crochet #amigurumi #booklover #bookreview Eco print "before" shot. Now bundled and simmering. So much colour in the garden this week, had to capture a memory. #springday
#ecoprint #ecodye #naturaldye #plantdye #inspiredbynature #mygardenrightnow #nettles #bakingandmaking #bundledyeing #theartofslowliving #surfacepattern Scrappy cyanotype. Still experimenting, still learning, still loving this process. Even tiny scraps of fabric aren't being wasted - perfect for testing out ideas...
