Bust Craftacular

bust1Last Sunday I got to hang out at Bust Craftacular and sell my necklaces and weaves. It was such a great day! I always get really nervous and hadn;t had much sleep so was pretty tired. This resulted in me being not that excited on the Sunday morning. However once we arrived and saw the queue that had formed to get it my mood changed.

I shared a table with the lovely Terri Leahy who was ace and put up with our silliness when it got towards the end of the day. YOu should check out her wrestiling polar bears. SO good. It was such a great day and I got to meet so many great people…. Hackney Potter, Ladybird Likes, Little Paper Vee, Zeena Shah to name a few. I also stopped by The Basket Room many times until eventually I settled on a beautifiul woven basket bag. They create beautiful collections of handwoven baskets. All woven with stunning colours & unique patterns, and they work with small craft collectives in Africa. It really was a great day full of inspiration and came away feeling pretty good!

Apologies for the poor pictures, I didn’t actually end up taking any apart from the 2 above and they were on my phone. Next time.

***>>> NEW BLOG <<<***

newlogo3Soooo I’ve moved my blog over to WordPress now so it would be ace if you could update your feed/Bloglovin/filing system. I just decided I needed a change. Please keep on following for all the usual bits and bobs. Any help with sharing this tiny move would be much appreciated.

I would like to say a massive thank you to James who helped me with transferring everything over from my old blog to here. If you need any help with design/website/skills then he’s your man. You can contact him here.

Hope you like it, I sure do.

More wool crafts

latch_hook_rug_wool_01 latch_hook_rug_wool_02Recently I have been wanting to try different crafts with wool and after a bit of googling this one came up. I have never done latch hooking before and its weirdly addictive. Its such a simple method and it takes a quite a long time to get anywhere but the results are really interesting. I’ve been experimenting with patterns and colour. Originally this was a kit off Amazon which was a unicorn rug. I was tempted but then just started making it up. I’m not sure what it will turn into, maybe a cushion, or maybe a wall hanging.

A little side note: my blog will be moving over to WordPress in the next few days so it might be a bit odd on here. I’m excited though, a new design too! I’ll let you know when its complete xx
