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 [...]

Making Monday – Earrings and The Spice Boys

The weather has been far too hot for much making but I’ve made some progress on my Lotus Tunic dress   That’s the front view and it looks a bit strange because I’ve had to fold the middle panel a little to take the picture.  I still have to cut, sew and attach the lining. Then [...]

Belated 9th Blogiversary or Late, Late and an Update…

My Blue Arbour

I love the colour blue in a garden and when Doug said he wanted to get me an arbour for my birthday, I knew exactly what colour I would paint it. It’s been a work in progress for a while. The staining, with one of Cuprinol’s garden shades, took ages and we still missed little [...]
