We’re now into the second week of Kirstie Allsopp’s Keep Crafting And Carry On. Although times are tough, sitting down every day to a familiar face has certainly helped and it is fantastic to have yet another source of inspiration to explore. If you missed last week’s episodes, be sure to check out our first blog post as it is filled to bursting with exciting project ideas. You should also set a reminder for 5pm every day and join us as we tune in to Channel 4. Remember, we won’t just be watching, we will also be updating the list of projects below on a daily basis.
