Crochet - Granny Square Blanket

and a giveaway winner

Crochet - Granny Square Blanket

Hello! Thank you to everyone that entered the knit Collage giveaway. It made me very happy to read your comments (and that you love beautiful yarn as much as I do!) I meant to post this last week but I got hit with a virus that left me only feeling able to do the necessities like feeding the little people! I’m feeling much better this week so I thought I would post the winner and show Lulu’s FINISHED crochet blanket…

For the month of May 300 UK bloggers will be sharing what Pinterest means to them and some of their favourite boards…


Homemade Ice-cream

Homemade Ice-cream

With the warmer weather finally approaching we’ve been making lots of our favourite ice cream puddings. I love homemade ice-cream but have never made any myself. I toyed with the idea of buying an ice-cream attachment for my kitchenAid.
