A very productive month indeed. OK, so I haven't finished the dress like I promised, but I am now working on it again and have fresh stocks of old gold yarn on the way to complete this absolute labour of love!

In February, my project list is thus:
Nico Dress- I HAVE to complete this project!
Sanderson curtains (oooh the fabric is GORGEOUS)
Ripple blanket
A couple of owl hats- one big, one small
A baby hat for another newborn girl

happy month of makes to you


  1. ok, so your month of makes put me to shame sooo much! you've been a busy bunny! fabulous crafting. when do you find the best time to do your crafting is? i like to crochet in the evenings (if i can stay awake!) and sew during the day...inbetween school runs and general housey stuff...

  2. Nonsense! I seem to have neglected my workload and family whilst in my mkaign frenzy...oooops. I find I have to crochet in the evenings, as my toddler likes to get very involved! Sewing I'm not sure yet...I did the curtains over a couple of Sunday afternoons whilst Albie was asleep!
