Cover Star!

There are few things nicer than seeing the result of many hours designing finally hitting the magazine shelves. It’s even more thrilling when your work makes the cover.

I came home this afternoon to find the latest issue of Let’s Get Crafting waiting for me and the gorgeous little Mama and Baby Bird are right there on the front cover.

All in all it’s been a great day, a quick photo shoot with the ever lovely Andrea, an inspiring meeting with some local entrepreneurs (which you can read about here) and a phone call from the teen.

You can pick up a copy of Let’s Get Crafting issue 61 from Friday 7th March. I’m particularly fond of the cute knitted sheep you’ll find inside and the simple little amigurumi Emma Varnam has designed.

I’ve got a few patterns ready for release, some free, some for the Etsy shop. I’ll be back soon with details. In the mean time, you can start getting ready for Easter with my free Easter Egg pattern and a simple Gift Bag, ideal for filling with treats and far better than a paper bag!

  • Adorable twitchy nose, cute little feet - but don't be fooled - this cheeky fella has eaten every single pea I planted in the greenhouse - no wonder his coat looks so glossy!
#girlgardener #ediblegarden #organicgardener #permaculture #forestgarden #growyourownfood  #slowliving One of the most  precious gifts you'll get in life is a best frend. Flowers from the garden - even in January! Last year I set myself a goal, to have flowers from the garden every week of the year. January it seems is easy - winter flowering clematis and viburnum doing a great job of cheering up the utility room today! Gardens are about feeding the soul, not just food for the table.
#cuttinggarden #flowergarden #permaculture #forestgarden #girlgardener #makingwinter #winterstories Last Saturday morning, Allonby. Wish every weekend could start with a walk on the beach, the winter light is so beautiful! 
Today I shall mostly be blocking crochet swatches, baking bread (my "signature" spelt  sourdough) & trying to book an Easter holiday! Whatever you have planned, be happy my Instagram friends xxx
#slowliving #winterstories #notjustlakes #morningslikethese #seekthesimplicity In the greenhouse, in the dark - clearing up and making room for this year's veg :So good to be getting dirt under my fingernails!
#girlgardener #growyourownfood  #organicgardener #ediblegarden #permaculture #forestgarden Hellebores, I love their delicate flowers and "barely there" shades of pink and couldn't resist bringing a few into the house today.  I'm slowly dealing with the pile of work on my desk, answering emails and doing one task at a time! 
Living with chronic illness is challenging and frustrating, but  slowing down and make the most of each day is a lesson I needed to learn!
