My hands are really protesting, but my psyche protests more - so I am still making - while ideas are running riot in my head. I have a stack of ready made felts (sheme on the used-to-be feltmaker!), and several small craft boxes to decorate. Better get my scissors sharpened,... Continue reading

With her wedding approaching fast, my one daughter is not going to be able to take part in the Easter Fayre, where I have booked two tables. That means that I'd better get busy! Here's another of my little teddies, and yet another two are being stitched up tonight. Still,... Continue reading

Just to show that I did knit those socks for my other half. He was going to wear them to work today - it's a very cold morning - but alas, he is not well, so won't be going in. The socks were knitted with two strands of DK yarn,... Continue reading

I have finished the teddy - even changed the eyes - and he is now safely stored away for youngest granddaughter's 1st birthday in April. I've been busy with the camera this afternoon, photographing new and old craft projects for my new website (in progress): www.thecraftpages.webs.com , as well as... Continue reading

One sock and an IOU note for the other, for my other half's birthday. He would take a holiday at just the wrong time. He was suitably surprised and happy all the same. Today it would have been my mum's 80th birthday. She was Mormor to my six girls. I... Continue reading

Hi Julie, I have just started setting up a website (nothing added as I write this) hoping to bring together a selection of crafts/crafters/designer-makers/supplies - UK based. It's hard to get started, with a plethora of great sites/blogs like yours around. Would you mind me linking to your blog? My intention is to showcase blogs/sites as I go, once I get going properly.

Not quite complete and Ted has eyes on a new home (but needs his eyes re-done: they're too big and black). He was meant for the up-coming Easter Fayre, but my granddaughter - 10 months old - fell in love with him. She couldn't have him today - his legs... Continue reading

Whenever I undertake something, I like a portion of it to be for charity. With the Easter Fayre in the next village coming up in just over a month, I hit on the idea of knitting hearts for charity. Only - it had already been thought of! My pattern (see... Continue reading

I have got my hands full at the moment, with my daughter recovering after a horrendous car crash yesterday (no one were seriously injured, thank God, but you wonder how, looking at the state of the car she was a passenger in - a total write-off), her partner away for... Continue reading

I'm attending/taking part in an Easter Fayre on Easter Saturday, together with a couple of my daughters, and although I buy in some stuff, I want to make some of my own things to sell, too. I look at East of India and Gisela Graham items and think 'I could... Continue reading

Jacob (15 months old) is getting ready for story time. Just Like Jasper is his favourite book. He likes nanny (mormor) to read it, but today he let granddad read to him - since nanny needed to take the photos. The book is tattered and torn - and well-loved. Jacob... Continue reading

I'm no quilt-maker, but ten years ago, when my oldest daughter was expecting her first child, our first grandchild, I started this quilt. All the fabrics used for appliqué were second-hand, and carry memories for me. The blue background fabric was a piece of fabric I dyed myself. Ben will... Continue reading

A bit of a non-day. Too sleepy! Was it something I ate - or perhaps the weather? It has been snowing - although it has now turned to rain. Being of Viking origin, I prefer the white stuff falling. My grandsons woke me a couple of times with 'you can't... Continue reading

I am who I say I am - Mormor - that is maternal grandmother in Norwegian (and Danish and Swedish, for that matter), yet I am a wearer of many virtual hats - but never a real one! I have made them (now where are those photos?) and found it... Continue reading
