Crafting with Katie

You can tell it's half term, as I don't really know if I'm coming or going and haven't had time to do anything creative: my crochet dolly is still in a state of disembodied strangeness and all other projects are in a similar state of limbo.

However, I did manage to complete one great crafty project with my mate Dougie's little girl, Katie. She was the recipient of some of my bunting and had really liked it (bless 'er) and had asked me if she could make something.

So we designed, chose fabric, pinned and cut..

...and then got out the ol' sewing machine...

...and I must say, I think she did a sterling job. Well done, Katie. Excellent work for someone who's only been on the planet for 6 years.

(Dougie tells me that Katie wants to add 'Katie's room' to the 'Annaboo's house' range of gifts and will come and work in my shop, when I have one).

Ha ha . Xx

P.S. Am having right old trouble trying to comment on your lovely blogs. So sorry. Naughty Blogger.


  1. Wow, I think Katie is already a gazillion times better on the sewing machine than I'll ever be. My mum bought me one years ago in the hopes I'd turn into a super sewer... and it dwells almost permanently in the cupboard. It'll be school holidays in four more weeks over here... but 2 weeks off in the middle of winter isn't so inviting. Although, cuddling up in a blanket by the heater all day does sound nice!

  2. Hey there i think Katie is a star, her heart is very pretty, i would deinitely buy it :)
    Thanks for your lovely comment & we are having a great time with soph

  7. Just having a read through your blog and saw your PS - I had the same problem and someone recommended changing from Internet Explorer to Google Chrome which seems to have done the trick.
    I love your crafty stuff and my 3 year old loves your Octonauts!
    Glad to have found your blog,
