I have cancelled my stall for the next two arts and craft markets due to so much happening that I can't seem to get my head around it all.

I don't talk much about my dad and how sick he is but for now all I'm saying is that he needs my energy and my time. The next few months will be dedicated to family, of course I will still be crafting, how can I not? but most of the stuff I make will be for our home, my family and friends. No pressure, just fun.

Speaking of fun, I made up these tin covers yesterday, so quick and easy. I got the idea from Lucy over at Attic24, picked up a couple of tins of peas from the supermarket and started crocheting.

The tin on the left with be my threads tin for all those annoying little threads that are cut off, it's been crocheted in single crochet and the one on the right is for Sophie to put hair bands in, she picked the colours and I crocheted it in half double crochet. They are both cute and practical and slightly addictive to make.

I have wanted to make another zig zag quilt for a while and finally picked out the fabrics today

light value fabrics

dark value fabrics

I'm looking forward to making something new, I may sell it, I'm not sure but I do know that I'll take my time with it and enjoy every step.


  1. Oh, I like the look of your stacks of fabric. I hope your time with your family is rich in love and kindness.

  2. Take all the time you need Sue, your family needs you :)
