I love making things and here's a snippet of what I've been up to…

My first attempt at making up a knitting pattern. Its based on Jean Adel's Sheep Blankie. I've had loads of pattern ideas for baby blankets, and as the test was successful watch this space!

Watercolour was a potential route for a project at work. Its been ages since I've picked up a paintbrush and realise how much I miss it!

A group of us headed up to Whittington Press to find out the history behind the press before heading off to do our own prints with Tom Mayo. I love Ampersands and this was a collection of all the ones I could find.
