Me Made May 2019

Me Made May sign up

May's a bit of a funny month for me.  On a personal level, it's tough; whilst it includes my birthday, it also includes the anniversary of the death of a family member which never seems to get any easier.

Hi there! Happy new year!  Welcome to 2017; here's hoping it's a little easier on the nerves than last year was. I had quite a busy festive period, sewing wise, or at least the run up to Christmas.  Particularly on Christmas Eve night when, having told the children all day that Santa would bring gifts...

A little while ago, the lovely Clarinda Kaleidoscope put an open invitation on Instagram for people to join her at the Spring Knitting and Stitching Show at Olympia.  I had a quick look at the cost of...
