[I was kindly gifted the wool and knitting needles from LoveCrafts]

I grew up wearing knitted jumpers - a bit like Ron Weasley - we had our initials on them, Disney characters, colourful cardigans.....

My Mum loves to knit and she taught me the basic knit stitch as a chi...

It's pretty obvious from all my photographs and of course my blog - that we are big fans of the great outdoors. Sometimes my three do need a bit of extra encouragement to get away from the TV - so I've been bringing a few extra bits with me when we go out walking.

Tassels are fab! They can pretty up anything and they are very easy to make. They look great on necklaces, clothing, garlands and cushions - my seven-year-old helped me make these ones.

.I'm still yet to get my hands on deer antlers, so I've been making the most of the sticks we've found and started having a go at making rustic dreamcatchers.

 The feathers have been painted with a mixture of watercolour, acrylics and nail varnish! The sticks have been...

This is a great idea for cute decor, a cake topper or ickle tiny bunting for a dolls house - using free colour swatches/paint charts and pompom wool from the 99p store! Bargainous!
