Quite Tough #abc123challenge

We’ve been on holiday this week just gone. I demanded to Dave that our first proper camp with the kids needed to be a lot less remote than our usual Scottish trips so we opted for Northumbria. With family and friends nearby I figured it would be better should everything …

Marcelle Medallion A Start

Marcelle Medallion The rabbit hole of the Quilty Instagram world has led me down a path I didn’t mean to recently. I spotted a sewalong for this Marcelle Medallion Quilt hosted by Nicole. I was smitten instantly. It’s a beautiful pattern of points and techniques I’m interested in trying. So …

P is for Play Doh

Play Doh Those two little words Play Doh certainly have me shiver.  I try to embrace it as much as I can. I even want to be that well-intentioned Mother who makes their own “safe” play doh, but I’m not. We have the shop bought stuff, I even requested it …
