Foldaway shopping bag tutorial

A little while back, I saw a tweet from the Craft Cotton Co. asking for sewing bloggers who would be interested in working with them to create some free sewing tutorials for their new blog. I obviously jumped at the chance! I had a think about potential projects and decided to make a foldaway shopping bag that I’d been planning for a little while. I often forget to take a reusable bag with me when I go shopping, and I find that they take up so much room in my bag! So I wanted to design a foldaway one which will be far more convenient.  Read More

Birkheads Secret Gardens in spring

We went to Birkheads Secret Gardens for the first time last summer, and bought a season ticket so that we could go again. The gardens opened again a couple of weeks ago, and last weekend we went to have a potter around.

It was incredibly windy but dry, so at least we managed to get out there and have a look at the lovely spring flowers.  Read More

Vanilla shortbread

Sometimes, you just feel like doing a spot of baking. This vanilla shortbread is something that I made when I felt just like that! It’s simple to make, and I didn’t do anything fancy with it either – I baked it in my brownie pan and just cut it into fingers once it came out of the oven. Just lovely! Enjoy with a cuppa or on a picnic, as it’s great for all occasions.  Read More
