Olivia’s Raglan Jumper

I started this at the beginning of the month because I wanted something that I hadn’t actually finished before. I still have my Winter Jumper that I’m only a quarter of the way through and I saw that this wouldn’t take me all year to do. So I bring you, Olivia’s Raglan Jumper.

Poppy Hat by Justine Turner

Update: Catherine’s Wheel Baby afghan

Well here’s yet another update on this afghan that I started in November of last year. I reckon I am about 40% of the way through. I only want to make it big enough for Olivia to be able to drag around and snuggle. It emerged from its hiding place last night as I thought […]

Dainty Birthday Earrings

So as it was my birthday yesterday and we are going out tonight to celebrate to my favourite place (Taco Bill!) I decided to make myself a nice little pair of earrings to go with my dress that I will be wearing. I haven’t worn dangly earrings in about 12 months so I thought it […]
