Posts under ‘Craft Room’

Look what came in the post…

…from France yesterday. It’s the Robe Reglisse dress pattern from Deer And Doe. I’ve never used one of their patterns before but the design is similar to a lot of the dresses I wear so if it works out it’ll get a lot of use. It’s been quite a while since I’ve sewn anything. Like [...]

Knit All the Things…ish

Remember Jabba?   Here he is installed on Eric’s sofa. He takes most of it up! I had all of these grand plans for the Christmas break. I was going to knit all the things and read and watch all the things, too. Of course the reality is that I was only able to knit, [...]

How I squished Jabba the Hutt under my sewing machine…

…and he only clogged the feed dogs once! If you own Bonnie Burton’s “Star Wars Craft Book” then you’ll be familiar with the Jabba the Hutt Body Pillow. A few months ago I showed the book to my boyfriend and he loved the Jabba pattern so I said I’d make it for him for Christmas. [...]

The End of the One Year Blogging Challenge plus 11 years of SpaceCraft…

So, this time last year I pledged to blog every Monday for a year. Why? Well, because my blogging had pretty much dried up. The last few years had come and gone with only a few posts to show for them. So to herald the eleventh year of this blog – yes, that’s right eleven [...]

Snow snooze

Very quick post today as unfortunately I’m not well at the moment. Hence the absence of crafty activities to document. You might have heard that we had a lot of snow in South Wales on Friday. I’m not a big fan of snow and neither is Emma. So here’s a pic of Emma disliking the [...]

Something to Keep the Cold Out…

Sometimes I take on too much. In this instance it was decorating & trying to take part in the 30 minute challenge. No sewing has happened this week. Not a jot. Not even a pattern cut out.   But I have finished one thing. My owl hat modelled by the lovely Nefertiti And a close [...]

How much sewing could you do in 30 minutes?

The first post of 2013 and I’m looking ahead to taking part in Cake Pattern’s Tiramisu 30 Minutes Sewalong. It starts tomorrow     I seem to start a lot of dress patterns and then become busy or distracted by something else but the sewalong is perfect as setting aside thirty minutes a day for [...]

It was the Night Before Christmas and the needles were not silent…

I’m so glad that my Christmas gift knitting is over. It was really up to the wire and I won’t be doing that again!   I can’t tell you what I knit as some friends have yet to open their presents but I did start knitting myself one on Sunday night All I can say [...]

Finishing NaNoWriMo – and now what?

    As much I’ve enjoyed Nanowrimo, I especially enjoyed going over the 50,000 word mark and finishing yesterday evening. I’m off work this week and all the way through I’d focused on finishing the writing just before so that I could properly enjoy my time off.   So I could read all the books [...]

Still Writing…

…and not crafting. My word count is currently just over 34k and I’m on leave next week. My plan was to get to the 50k late this week, certainly by the weekend so that I can do relatively little during my week off.  I’m honestly not sure if I’m going to get through the just [...]
