Back to school crochet, sewing and knitting inspiration

This year I am determined,  I will be ready!. London is a funny place, you can have 28 degrees on Sunday and 15 on Monday! Last year in September I thought I was ready and then suddenly started to get cold really quickly!, I have three kids so I panicked and had to buy ‘emergency’ winter gloves, scarfs and a few cardigans! 223 more words

Coffee Jar Candle Holder Cosy

Coffee Lovers!! — If you’ve not tried the amazing Douwe Egberts Hazelnut coffee – you’re missing out!

But sadly this wonderful coffee-goodness only comes in 50g jars and so my flat is slowly becoming a hoarding station for the empty pretty little Douwe Egberts jars as I just can’t face throwing them away. 273 more words
