Mosaic bird bath

 

I was recently invited to take part in the Topps Tiles Mosaic Tile Challenge, and as I’ve never actually made a mosaic before (and I’m always up for a crafty challenge) I decided to give it a go! I was sent a batch of mosaic tiles and some tile glue, but then from there it was up to me to design my own crafty project. There is a Pinterest board but I decided not to look at that – although, now I have in order to be able to put the link in and there is a bird bath – argh! Never mind, I’m really pleased with how this project has turned out!

World Cup Cake Off

 

In 2006, we were very lucky to get tickets to go to some of the World Cup matches in Germany – I’m not a huge football fan, but I must admit that going to matches is far more exciting than watching it on TV! As the 2010 games were in South Africa (and going there was never going to be a possibility) I decided to make a World Cup cake instead – here it is:

As you know, I’ve been working on loads of top secret things recently! This cushion is a project for Less Grafting More Crafting, which we’ve done as a guest post on the fabulous Courage and Dash blog – and you can now read the tutorial here! (The internet ate our original post, but the problems have now been fixed, so the link should work now!).

 

It is a happy day – it’s Friday! Have a great weekend everyone!

As you know, I like trying out new recipes whenever I can! I found this when I was looking for Easter recipes (not that this really has any special Easter connection) but it said that it’s quick to make so I thought I’d try it on a weeknight. The recipe serves 6 – I made up the whole batch and have frozen the rest for another day (I put a later of greaseproof paper between each batch of 2 so that they don’t stick). Continue reading…

Rainbow patchwork baby quilt

20140615-202504-73504833.jpg

I’ve been wanting to make a quilt for so long now – I follow so many people on Instagram who are brilliant quilters, and Tom’s Aunt makes amazing ones too so I’m surrounded by inspiration! Our dear friends Luci and Simon are expecting their first baby in just a few weeks, so I decided that I’d have a go at making them a special quilt. They chose not to find out what they are having so I wasn’t sure if they were going for a particular colour scheme – so I decided to go for all the colours! 🙂 Continue reading…
