While I’ve still not been brave enough to try a knitted jumper, I think my first knitted shrug turned out pretty well. I still adore the colour and pattern, and am wishing spring would hurry up so I can wear it again.
Possibly my biggest achievement in 2014 was learning to crochet, something that has been on my list for so long – I finally made it a resolution last new year and actually stuck to it! I LOVE this cushion… can you tell?

Furniture DIYs always seem to take that bit more commitment because you can’t fiddle with them as you sit on the sofa watching TV, this one involved a couple of hours over several days in my parents’ garage which made it all the sweeter when I finally took it, finished, back to our flat. It now looks great in our new house too.
Last year was the first year I’ve started giving my handmade items as gifts and Dino my knitted dinosaur went down so well with my friend and her beautiful new baby boy. I’ve already had a request for a giraffe from a newly pregnant friend, watch this space in 2015!
Ps. You may notice a few changes to floral and feather’s design and layout over the next few weeks, I’m having a bit of a play. Eek!
