lately...

life is so busy at the moment, i'm struggling to believe that it really is september already!
my evenings and weekends are now spent hopping between sleep and crafting, and i've got a post all lined up to showcase some of the amazing things i get to make for work.

i've still managed to get a few diy's in here and there, including this braided rug from the incredible blog "a beautiful mess". my version is a lot scrappier, but i managed to recycle so many fabric scraps and old tshirts which is amazing. it's also pixel's new favourite thing!


























i also wanted to show off this little cutey- it was a leaving present from the girls at my old job and it's so sweet! a girl can never have too many threads i reckon.






























i feel like my life has gone into craft overload at the moment- i am loving it! now i've just got to get my organisational head on so that i can actually post about it all :)

p.s. here's a little pixel snap- though these peaceful moments are harder to come by nowadays; she is loving running around the flat like a looney 24/7!

  5. Sorry removed my earlier comment cause I thought I typed cat but I didn't so it sounded a bit weird;) I really love the way that you use recycling in your work! I have become inspired and dedicated a project to you! I really love the rug it's really cute but your cat is even cuter!
