I’m Jean, a married and mum of 2 girls (Miss P and Miss E), live in Northern Ireland and I love crafting.

Ever since my parents bought me a Janome sewing machine for Christmas when I was 14 I’ve always had one project on the go so it’s fair to say that I’ve probably tried most crafts. I love to cross stitch, crochet and make things with the sewing machine Β when the girls aren’t about πŸ™‚

I’ve been blogging for a while as I love having a record of what I’ve made, as well has seeing how much my skills have improved. I’ve also been adding tutorials as it’s good to share the crafty goodness!

Anyway have a look around and let me know what you think – I look forward to hearing from you.

  1. Well Jean, my book has arrived!! am almost ready to join you on the square adventure!! Am bogged down with back issues of my crochet mag which gives me a square a week, so really should catch up on the first I suppose, but the squares in the book are so much nicer …

    1. Yay! It’s quite exciting us all crocheting together. I love seeing what everyone else is making (nosey me!).

  2. I love your crochet, and your blogs. Your willow square and danish square are stunning. And no, not everyone who can do tr and dtr can make a cushion like yours – it’s also the choice of colours that make it unique. It’s really gorgeous — if I didn’t have to get ready for work now I would go scruffling through my stash to look for suitable colours and get my own one going. Really beautiful and inspiring.

  3. Hi Pixie, thank you for “liking” my post! I am new here so really appreciate the encouragement πŸ™‚ I love your work and look forward to seeing more!

  4. Thanks for visiting my site! I love your crochet block project – so many pretty patterns. I love crocheting different granny squares, so I look forward to seeing new variations!

  5. Congratulations I have nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award! if you feel like you can accept, head over to my site to have a look at what you have to do and remember to copy and paste the award onto your own blog.

  6. Hi Jean,
    I noticed you like Abakhan. I used to live quite near the North Wales branch (but not close enough to go without help from my dad). I loved that place. It’s probably good that it wasn’t nearer because I could have spent a fortune there. πŸ˜€

    1. I don’t have any Abakhan shops near me so I buy online which is probably more dangerous πŸ˜‰

  7. Top o the mornin to ya! πŸ˜‰
    Just wanted to let you know that I nominated you for the β€œOne Lovely Blog Award.” You’ve been doing an awesome job! I truly enjoy your thoughtful and fun posts!
