Summer Holidays

I did my last day of teaching for the school year today! Woohoo! Holiday time. This means I can dedicate the next few months to making lots of new things for my shop and for me!

I have already made a good start.


This is the skein I bought (a couple of days ago if I’m honest) to cheer myself up after receiving a particularly depressing letter in the mail about the next step of medical treatment for me (I won’t go into details as it would almost certainly fall under the category of oversharing. Suffice it to say that it is all related to childbirth injuries). The colour makes me happy and it is SO SOFT. CAPSLOCK. I don’t have a plan for it yet. It’s just for petting.

Then there were two little gifts to send off to a big sister and a brand new baby. A little cot quilt and a toadstool brooch.


Toadstools. I have been told they are the new Owls. That’s a bold statement! Attend any craft fair and owls abound. It’s time for a new obsession I think.
