I've been eyeing @miacharro's Wild Spirit fabric for years. I finally got some and made six table mats, complete with the most crooked seams and the dodgiest mitred corners. But I love them dearly. Very good quality cotton that washes super well, despite my efforts to keep them intact. Next up, something with her Free Spirit wallpaper!

This is the cover of Nina's handmade calendar - sweetest way ever to let everyone know way before we were ready to tell anyone, that we are to have another baby. Our (!) baby she calls it and she couldn't be more right about the equal amounts of love, excitement and utter joy the three of us feel waiting for our baby ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜💖
I've decided - I'm making @hollywoodwarddesigns's Hattie top after crocheting 30 granny squares in this colourway ages ago and it's one of those things you can't stop making bits for something even if you don't know what that something's gonna be. Like that brilliant bit from the film Banshees of Inisherin I saw the other day and still can't get out of my head: "I best go over there and do whatever that thing over there I was gonna do was."

Hello new year, I did make time to colour not just this but several of @johannabasford's incredible designs. I could wallpaper my entire home in her illustrations. The beauty of colouring side by side to my Nina is we both sit together for ages in silence and just share colours and smile at each other.

Still buzzing from my first Christmas fair this weekend, what an absolute honour to be selected by @fortyhall as local maker, thank you!
And what a joy to meet so many wonderfully passionate and skilled people, to be in such a busy place with everyone getting in the Christmas cheer, seeking handmade gifts, great architecture and carol singing and mince pies.
Not only did I sell unexpectedly lots of my crafts to lovely people who either appreciate crochet or know someone who does (this young woman bought one of my flower garlands and put it on to wear it right away, so sweet), but I had so many compliments, and kindness from people stopping to talk to me about crafts, mindfulness, design, happiness, colour, and the strong link between them.
Big shout out to some of the most brilliant makers I have ever met - go check them out: @yestotheknot, @designsbyecs, and @paulamariejewellery
Another day, another pair of angels ❤️💙 Can you tell I'm obsessed with @attysloveforcrochet's free pattern? They've been flying off my stall at @fortyhall Christmas Craft fair.
