The Flowers I went to Waitrose this morning to do a bit of shopping for things I need before my next delivery on the 13th. As I was packing my rucksack and about to leave, an assistant came up to me and asked if I would like some free flowers, so of course I said… Read More Free Flowers & Focaccia
In July, apart from my normal monthly Montage post, I had three posts about cooking, three posts about crobhet and two posts about my apple tree. Crochet first. I published my latest pattern for a thing that I call a Hexatetraflex. I had made the standard version and a slightly more ambitious version that gave… Read More Monthly Montage – July
For a long time now I have been wanting to make the recipe for Fougasse that came in my Magimix Food Processor recipe book. Just never quite found the right moment. But yesterday I decided that the time had come. Recipe is HERE and the picture is the one in my book but the 100g… Read More I Made some Fougasse
I hadn’t intended to post anything today because I thought more about the coat would be boring and I didn’t really have much else to show you.

I told you a few weeks ago that I had agreed to make my daughter a coat. Now I really like Regina’s patterns and this one was in Tunisian simple stitch that I thought I could manage. As I showed you I managed to get into the groove with DK yarn. Now I had had… Read More Why did I agree to this?
I almost forget about making a montage for June. So here it is: better late than never. I told you about how I had managed to acquire more yarn than I intended when I bought a bargain bundle and my outing to Lee-on-Solent to the Hovercraft museum with the family and how we got to… Read More Monthly Montage – June
You can find the pattern on Ravelry here – https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/hexatetraflex This pattern is a sort of companion piece to my Flexacube. I call it a Hexatetraflex because like the Flexacube it flexes and consist of six (hexa) tetrahedrons in a ring.
