Just dipping my toe in

Remember me?!
It's been a looooong while but I'm not going to apologise, I've always been more of a reader than a writer and blogging started to feel like an enormous pressure so I had to step away for a while. Just lately however, I've been feeling the need to share.

Just a few of the things I've been up to recently -

I've made a few BendyBow headbands, some of which will probably find their way into my Etsy shop

I have formulatd a new and much more flattering design for my sweater coats

I crocheted a bag out of video tape (the X Files in case you were wondering)

I saw the Flaming Lips perform at Jodrell Bank which has the biggest, most fantastic telescope ever. I now think everyone should see the Flaming Lips at least once in their life.

I crocheted a rainbow granny shrug (yes, I really do wear things like this!) which is an idea I shamelessly copied from Therealiolithie on Etsy - check her out, she is the QUEEN of crochet

I had a craft stall at a little local festival

I went to a vintage fair in Chester and snapped up this splendid maxi dress for just £3 from the bargain bin

I also went to the Vintage Village at Stockport on Sunday but didn't get any pics, I was too busy being overwhelmed, it really is as good as you've heard!

Bye for now! x


  1. i totally love your sweater coat!

  2. Long time no see, it's good to have you back!

    The sweater coat is looking really good.

  3. Lovely to see you back! I saw the Flaming Lips at The Green man last year adn they were fab, reduced grown men (and women) to tears.
    Glad you're still being wonderfully creative. x

  4. Lovely to hear from you. Adore your new coats that shape is gorgeous. Your crochet bag has intrigued me too, I could fancy 'borrowing' that idea. Your stall looked fab too.

  5. Ah you've been up to so much, i was just thinking about you the other day when i was debating whether to head to Abakhan (I didn't).
    I love the crochet, what a great idea to make out of video! :)

  6. Oh it's so lovely to see you back posting! And haven't you been busy? So many fab makes. My brain is slightly boggling at the prospect of knitting with videos. Is it a bit like those things knitted from carrier bag strips that I've seen people make?

    You've been SUCH a busy and fecking clever minx!!!
    Bloody hell! So nice to have you back around!!! Yay! I like the rainbow shrug the BESTEST!!!
