That’s all we’ve seen here in the UK for two weeks now, and an already drippy country will get another soaking this weekend. We’ve been lucky not to see any flooding in our area, but others have been sorely affected. So, summer weekend plans have been shelved, and instead we are shopping for food and returning home to hibernate. I’ll be finishing a project (below) which is to become a birthday present for my mother in law. Other than that I’ll be drinking hot chocolate and trying to keep dry!




A first post is a tricky thing. It should set the tone of the conversation and at the same time be pithy and invite further reading. There is a danger of setting expectations too high, or unduly narrowing the topics of interest.

Suffice to say that this journal is space of exploration for me. A platform to investigate and develop my love of knitting, sewing and other hand-crafts, as well as the inspiration that design, architecture and photography provide to my creativity.

I hope that recording my progress here will encourage me to learn new skills and take greater risks in order to become ‘a dab hand’ at these rewarding crafts. I would welcome your thoughts and suggestions on my progress!
