DIY Word Art – Quotes To Live By #1

I love colouring in! In January I treated myself to a mega pack of Sharpies with my Christmas money. I’ve also got a new Arc Notebook that I’m using as a diary/planner/notebook and I love spending the odd half hour or so doodling and colouring in – a great way to switch off if you need to. If you follow me on Instagram you’ll know that one of the things that I’ve been colouring a lot of recently is quotes, so I thought I’d share with a little Word Art DIY.

Crochet clothing – dress refashion

We were supposed to be moving house round about now but that didn’t happen and we’re not sad about it – our buyer changing her mind actually turned out to be the right thing for us and packing our entire house over the Christmas period, because we both had 2 weeks off, proved to be a good decluttering exercise too.

I got rid of a huge stash of clothes – many that I hadn’t worn for a very, very long time. One thing that nearly ended up in the charity shop bag was this dress.

It was going to be a wall hanging and then a table runner but with 30 personalised squares it ended up being too big (too big to get a decent picture – Yes, that is Missy holding it over the banister in the last photo in an attempt to get a full length shot!) so I’m calling it a quilt!

I loved working on this project and finding out the stories behind each person’s square.

Something different – bunting and a quilt! Part One

Well – there hasn’t been a whole lot of crochet going on around here these last few months and I’ve been very quiet on the social media front because lately I’ve been working on something different – bunting and a quilt! And with not a bit of crochet involved there’s been quite a steep learning curve as I’ve never made either before.

These were special top secret projects but I did share tiny glimpses on Instagram every now and then.

Both the bunting and quilt were gifts for a special person – Carry on reading…
