so since I have last been here

It’s been a little while since I have been here, workshops, things happening, designing, making, finishing thing up so here are a few highlights from my past few weeks.

And then had a brilliant day out with Lisa again, visiting Wemake London and Loop.


Apart from all that I have been working on a secret project with Skein Queen, it’s hard to keep it under wraps until you can here more about that …
