A few weeks ago I took a trip to the Kraft Kabin in Pontypridd. They have a wondrous selection of yarn, I think I could live there forever and never get bored! Like most crafters, I bought things I didn’t need, didn’t have plans for and couldn’t really afford! I couldn’t help it when I… Continue reading The Skull Shawl
I have two very beautiful dogs; Peggy a mischievous chihuahua and Sansa a mixed breed rescue dog. Unfortunately, they live with their other mother, so I don’t get to see them as often as I used to.

My car recently broke down and funds are low, so I thought it would be a fun and inexpensive… Continue reading A few Easter baskets and a flowerpot!
Like most crocheters, I have amassed quite a significant amount of yarn in varying colours and weights.
