By Clare Albans / 06 Jun 2015

A little while back I made a cover for my sewing machine (click here to see that post) and it has been brilliant for keeping my machine super clean! But because I don’t have a craft room, I have to move it around. A lot. It would be helpful to do this without having to…

Decluttering

By Clare Albans / 18 May 2015

As much as I have put off admitting this over the past few years, it is now time for a declutter at home. Such is the level of decluttering required, it will no doubt be known in the future as ‘The Great Declutter of 2015’ – but it really will be worth it! Naturally, most of the…

We adapted it from the original recipe (click here to see that) so that it was just enough for two. We didn’t…
