Joyuex Noel

by Kate on December 17, 2012

I couldn’t really resist another photobooth Christmas wishes selfie. It has been a little funny looking back over my Christmas posts and seeing myself take a ‘break’ from the blog and the internet. That’s not really required this year as I have barely been here at all! So very typical of me to go flat […]


Christmas Sacks

by Kate on November 23, 2012

It is no secret that I LOVE Christmas and when Sarah asked me to whip up a crafty Christmassy project for the shop, how could I refuse? I had lots of fun making these Christmas sacks. A half meter of linen, some fabric, some perle, some gorgeous ribbon and voila enter the Christmas sack. Sarah […]


Ho Ho Ho

A photobooth fail but you get the idea… As is customary for me at this time of year, I am taking a little break from the Internet. Time to relax and recharge. So a BIG ‘Merry Christmas’! I hope that wherever you are and whatever you celebrate, you are surrounded by family and friends. Thanks […]


The tree

by Kate on November 28, 2011

I love Christmas. It is my favourite time of year and as such I never wait for 1st December to put up the tree. Pretty chuffed with how the doily decorations look, you can find the tutorial here. Speaking of tutorials, the following make great Christmas gifts: * Nan’s many biscuits – they make up […]


Christmas Wishes

by Kate on December 9, 2010

I can’t believe that a new year is just around the corner. The days, weeks and months seem to be just flying by but to be honest, I have been looking forward to 2011 for quite some time. The oldest is starting school and the youngest will be trotting off to day care two days […]


To Make: Many Biscuits

by Kate on December 7, 2010

These guys are definitely a Christmas tradition in my family. My Nan bakes up a batch every year and gives a jar to each grandchild, she even posted them to me when I lived in London. This Christmas, I am baking up a batch for some special people in my life and thought I would […]


My Creative Space

by Kate on December 2, 2010

The countdown has begun and I am quite excited…possibly even more than the kids. I bought this advent calendar kit from Kristen Doran, it says ‘Christmas’ without being too much and I’m quite taken with it. Have you started your Christmas sewing? I’m sure there are lots of festive posts popping up over at Koo’s.

Last year, Mel sent me some beautiful Christmas prints that she bought whilst travelling in Germany. These prints, teemed with a cheater panel from the Cookster and some red scraps have created some simple cards. I love Christmas and will more than likely pop the tree up this week…early I know but it really is […]

The Fat Quarterly Holiday Special will be available for purchase from 17th October. If you have already have a subscription to Fat Quarterly, this issue will be coming […]
