Making it!

A while ago I mentioned that I had been rather busy and new exciting things were on the horizon! Well, this is why!
I was given the opportunity to write a feature for a brand new magazine!

Making magazine is perfect for the kind of life we all lead at the moment. We find ourselves dipping in and out of projects, creating for the home and wanting to learn more!


I was asked to come up with 6 styles to give an old chair a new twist. Some are simple quick ideas, others will get your creative juices flowing!

Its a great new magazine with a website and forum too and I have enjoyed the experience, so go and buy a copy and let me know what you think!

This weekend has really seen a seasonal change. The leaves are turning, the air smells of fires and the sunsets are beautiful.



This time of year brings the Bentley Woodfair to this part of the world. As a family we go every year and look forward to it so much.
Having been brought up as a carpenters daughter wood features heavily in my life and this fair brings together everything, trade, craft and people that work with wood.


I love the owls they bring, such beautiful creatures.


He looks a hoot!


This owl had the most amazing HUGE eyes!


The boys also got to have ago at archery! The people who were helping were from a group that go around reenacting Robin Hood days, I quite fancy having ago at that one day!


Overall it was a lovely day and a must for anyone interested in going next year!


Right, I must get back to sewing, that chill in the evening air is a sure sign that we have the C word upon us! *whisper....Christmas!*
