Where Has January Gone ?????

Is it me or has January just disappeared within a blink of an eye either that or its true that time flies when you get old 🙂

But this has been another fun packed week, starting with our first Textile Art Workshop of the year. This class was all about reverse applique. Everyone did an amazing job.

My class looking very pleased with themselves and rightly so.

Its time for our first ‘I made that’ campaign. 


This is our new campaign where we our asking you and all of our customers/followers to email me a picture of your makes. This is because I know I have very talented customers and I don’t get to see all of your lovely makes. This is mainly down to some of you not living locally.

However local or not I’d love to see your makes as it’s the best part of my job. I will be featuring one person per blog post and advertise your talents, business and inspirations. Please email me –

This week is our Sue – This lady would without a doubt the biggest yarn addict I know but thankfully she puts it all to good use.
