1/52 Milo

Doing my best to keep up with it but struggling already. It will get easier as the weather improves and we actually do stuff at the weekend other than hang out at home or in other people’s houses, I’m sure.

Cute succulent planters by Barruntando

succulent planters

We’ve gone a bit succulent and cactus mad in 2018! I bought these cute pots from Barruntando (from whom I’ve also got a yarn bowl) with my Christmas money, and while we were waiting for them to arrive, we bought quite a few plants. It’s quite addictive!

Shoreditch streetart

London streetart

Back in November, I was down in London for a conference. I travelled down early the day before to have a half day for walking around and doing some streetart spotting in Shoreditch. Unfortunately my plans were thwarted when the train was 2.5 hours delayed, which meant I arrived in Shoreditch just as it was starting to get dark. I had about twenty minutes before the light completely went!

I did get quite a few pictures, these are the ones that look ok as they are, I’ve got loads more that I’ll have to see if they are rescuable through editing.

2017 Makes

I’m pleasantly surprised to discover that I’ve made 20 things in 2017! It’s not loads and loads, but it’s more than I thought I had, given that I pretty much constantly feel that I don’t have enough time to craft!

Christmas dinner dress

Burda 10/2017 103

… well, that’s what I first wore it for. It’s actually a sort of universally appropriate dress.

This is probably the most elaborate thing I’ve made to date. It certainly seems like it from the amount of compliments I got when wearing it and people’s reactions when I said I made it. Usually people are like ‚oh cool‘ but not surprised whereas people seemed to genuinely think it was impressive. So, yeah!
