Cosplay Update 3-tied up in corsetry

It’s been a couple of weeks since the last post – I’ve been waiting for some stuff to turn up in the mail before I can make more progress. On the plus side, you’ve missed the swearing at my own stupidity / the overlocker / ebayers / my own stupidity

Practicing my scales

I’m sure you’ve all missed me for the whole week I didn’t post – I was enjoying some much needed RNR so I went off grid for a bit. But it wouldn’t be a Lulu holiday if I didn’t return with some amazing new project to show off to y’all!

Pull up a chair

I want to say it’s officially spring, but I don’t dare considering the horrendous weather of February and March! However, it is APRIL which marks the approach of my wedding anniversary (thankfully the weather was better back then!) When I got married, we didn’t have a great deal of money,

Easter Bob-Bunny

Aside from it essentially being another excuse (like it’s needed) to stuff one’s face, we don’t really celebrate Easter. Only two of our household actually like chocolate with any real enthusiasm and one of THOSE is on a diet anyway! So it’s often non-traditional gifts of pies and crisps. Though

Feel the Power(tex)!

An incredibly rare event occurred – I had a whole day to myself in the house!! This almost never happens, so I took full advantage. It was a tough call, trying to choose between some uninterrupted reading time, starting Evil Dead that some overly generous friend of mine gave me

The giant bear has landed

A quick post this week to say … I finished the giant zombie bear!! It’s huge, heavy and great for cuddles. I weighted his feet and belly so he’ll stand under his own power. I suspect I’ll be making more of these. I haven’t decided whether to keep this chap

The Mother of all Ponchos

You might be wondering why I haven’t posted any crafty makes of late. Well that’d be because I (again, stupidly) decided to take on another overly ambitious project for no good reason. In January I thought I’d make my mother a top for Mother’s Day because she likes cover-ups with

The Shape of Valentine’s

I realise Valentine’s Day has been and gone, but technically it’s still February so this counts! I’m not one for splashing out on Valentine’s Day, but I do think that it’s a good excuse to do something with someone (or some people) you care about. And yes, I know, I

New Year, new project

Happy inevitable passing of time, everyone! The dress has fulfilled it’s initial purpose – party was great fun. We did Murder in the Thirties this year – was a pretty tricky one this time. We’ve done quite a few now – I think this one was the least hammy and

Selection Box – Week 4 of Advent Blogs

  It’s Christmas!!! *Slumps in exhaustion* I’d have more enthusiasm if I hadn’t spent 2 days baking several kanellangd, a parfait and then cooked Christmas dinner today … Today, as a special treat, I thought I’d give you a bumper pack of Christmas crafts. I’ve deliberately restrained myself from posting
