Here’s my sister and my niece working on scarf I was making for my dad. Lovely to keep the knitting skills alive and my dad seems to be happy with the end result too.
The other day, my friend Jen told me about Dala horses. Dalecarlian or Dala horses are traditionally hand crafted wooden horses made in the Dalarna area of Sweden. Today their image features on lots of products but here are some of my favourites.
I love this blanket. It’s only small but I really like all the colourways.
Let’s brooch it
How cute are these horse brooches? They are inspired by a piece of Fairisle knitwear (pictured, right).
Giddy up girlfriend! This is super cute!
My friend Elizabeth recently did a pottery course at RACC. I was quite jealous. She would come into work having been to her course the night before and talk about all the textures she was experimenting with including using the end of a biro!
I really wanted to see something she had made but there was a problem. She was shy. And so last night, I went to her house and unearthed these little beauties when she was busy in the kitchen.
The small bowls make great tealight holders and I really love the E she made. Happily, she let me take one of the bowls home and I have proudly displayed it on my sideboard.
Oh to be a bird and fly away. These wings by Big Bird’s Boutique are the perfect way to fire up the imagination of the small person in your life. However, I’d also like some for myself. In the summer, I’m due to perform at a festival with my band and I think a larger version of these wings with a matching headdress would look ace!
Here’s a peek at Orla Kiely’s pre-spring collection and this dress is a beauty. Made from silk twill, it will set you back about £328 but if you know fashion maths, this may well add up.
Something however, doesn’t add up. Why so glum love? And where has the invisible dog you’re patting gone?

Loving this jumper featured in the latest Rowan magazine. A new year project?
Really into reels at the moment! Think it’s partly the colour possibilities. Here’s two pictures I took – one at an art exhibition and the other, at Cockpit Arts this weekend.
I’ve been decorating my new Swiss Cottage for Christmas and made some trees from pipe cleaners and beads, also some mini presents (I made tiny boxes from a cut-up cardboard box) and oversize felt stockings.
When I see it all lit up, it makes me feel happy but I think I’m too big to move in!
