Fabric stash inventory

This project and post was inspired by one of my lovely blog readers, Jennie! We met last summer at Harrogate station (on our way home from the Great Northern Quilt Show) and we have been in touch since then via my blog and social media. One of Jennie’s resolutions this year is not to buy any new fabric, but to use up her stash of fabric for projects that she’s working on. I have already bought a bit of fabric this year, so I can’t do exactly what Jennie is doing – but, having to sort out a lot of stuff (i.e. the whole house) after the kitchen work was finished made me think a lot about my own fabric stash and the amount of room that it takes up… So, I decided that I’d do a little fabric stash inventory. Because, let’s face it, I couldn’t remember everything that I have!  Read More

Felt brooches

In case you missed my post, I have been featured in issue 47 of Craftseller magazine as their Blogger of the Month – yay! I am super excited about this (as if you hadn’t guessed!), especially as I was asked to design a copyright-free tutorial for their website. The design that appears there is a little bird felt brooch, but I had lots of other ideas when I was designing it and I thought I would put a bonus design on my blog too! Read More

Boeuf Bourguignon pie

Our dear friends bought us a copy of The Great British Bake Off: Big Book of Baking for Christmas, and as soon as we looked through the yummy treats in the book, we knew that we had to make this Boeuf Bourguignon pie. That and the Grasmere ginger shortbread (which at the time of writing this, we haven’t got round to yet). Valentine’s Day seemed like a good occasion to give it a whirl, especially as we hadn’t done that much cooking in our new kitchen! Thankfully, I’m starting to get a bit better and I was desperate to make something – it turned out to be a team effort 🙂 And we made it in our lovely heart-shaped dish, which was very fitting!  Read More

Our dream kitchen

Well, after 9 and a half weeks of construction, our dream kitchen is complete – and I don’t mean that to sound completely corny, but it’s true! I can’t believe it’s finished. It’s like someone else’s kitchen in our house haha! It has taken us a little while to get things in, and there are still a few bits to do, but I’m so excited to finally be sharing it with you.  Read More
