Another Nordic Gnome

 Hi!  If you saw the little Nordic Gnome I made in this post... you might know she was waiting for a little friend.  Here he is!

Nordic Gnome Boy

He was also part of the same kit.  I'm glad I have finally completed both gnomes, as I've had the kit a few years.  They are very cute and will be nice to take out each Christmas.  If I get round to putting them away... I want to enjoy them for a bit first!

Nordic Gnome Pair

What do you think?  A cute little pair?!

My Current WIPs - January 2023

I really want to try to finish some WIPs (works in progress) that have been languishing for quite some time!  There seem to be so many projects I start and never finish.

Here they all are - unless I've forgotten some!

The first three I posted about in a previou WIP post in January 2020 - three years ago!  These are the three that are still outstanding from that post - really should finish them!!  You can read my comments about them in that post.

Monsoon Stole

Beach Hut Scissor Keep

Crochet Face Pads

Now onto ones started since that last WIP blog post...

Natica Cowl

You read more here.  I love this yarn and pattern, so need to get going with this again!

Lion Crochet Cushion

I started this not long before Max was born.  It is supposed to be a lion cushion for his bedroom.  I didn't have too much of a plan, but I would like to get it finished, as I think it could be quite cute!


This one is quite exciting!  I bought a new sewing machine last March and started sewing a quilt!  I had a jelly roll of strips of coordinating fabric, and I started sewing them together in groups of three.  I did the five you can see below, then stopped.  It's hard to get the time with the children, but I really love the patterns and colours and would be so pleased to get this finished!

Notions Pouch

I bought the pattern to make this notions pouch by Indigo Bird Design and cut out my fabric ready to go - I just need to find time to sew it up!  Below are my fabric choices...

Pink Knitted Chartres Cardigan

Another exciting one - I've started knitting the Chartres Cardigan by Ami Lowden.  This will be my first knitted item of clothing, if I ever finish it!  I really want to wear it, so need to get a move on!

Lots of fun lovely projects!  I really hope to get some of these finished this year.  I will be sure to post about them when/if I do!

Nordic Gnome

 I am already doing better than this time last year, and have actually completed something already!

This cute little Nordic Gnome was from a kit my friend Anna gave me for Christmas a few years ago.  I'm so pleased to have finally made her!

The kit comes with a little man-friend whom I have yet to make... I must get on with that and finish the pair.  I'll be sure to update you if/when I do!

Creation Consolidation - 2022!

Happy New Year - let's hope 2023 is a good one!

Well, 2022 was the year with the least crafting I've done since starting my blog over a decade ago!  I really haven't done very well at managing two children, working part-time and fitting in crafting - I really hope to change that this year!

But here is what I did make... click the headings or the pictures to be taken to the relevant posts...

Cake Toppers using the Cricut Joy

Crochet Penguin

Felt Gingerbread Man Christmas Tree Decoration

Superhero Cape

I am really going to try to do more crafting (and blogging about it) this year.  As well as enjoying creating, it makes me feel productive and like I've achieved something.  I really need to fit it in somehow!

If you are interested, here are my consolidation posts from previous years:

I didn't do a round-up for years before that, but you can see other finished items at the below links:

Wishing you all the best for 2023!
