    Weekend plans and new crafting adventures

    A bike to put back together, Aisles?! That's some extreme crafting session! You do sound incredibly busy, but I think that productive hard work is really good for the soul, especially when you're making things that other people can enjoy, too I'm sorry you've been having trouble with it too, Pink Puppy, though we're all in this together! If I find a good tutorial I'll let you know, though I did see this the other day and I might give it a go. What I like about this video is that she does the crochet slow and explains everything: And button bouquets?! How creative! You must send me a picture when you're done, I'm so interested to see how they turn out! And haha, yes, cut the grass before it rains. I don't trust the good patches of weather at the moment as it seems that it's only a little while later before it's raining again!
  4. Hello everyone, With the weather being so topsy-turvey, I'm not sure whether I want to venture outside or stay in and get some of my projects finished! I've recently been trying to learn how to crochet, and after two hours of tutorials and practice I can just about make a magic ring! I can knit perfectly fine, but crochet has always been the weak link in my chain! Has anyone else been making anything, got their weekend plans sorted or currently learning something new? Or do you have any tips for me and my awful crochet skills? Hehe

    using crafts beautiful free envelope maker

    Hello, Sorry to hear that you've been having trouble, if you could tell me what you've been trying to make I'll help you out as best as I can. Thanks, Jec
  6. Hello everyone, Our August issue has been out for a few days now, and what an issue! Everyone's worked super hard to create this nice summer read full of seasonal makes and ideas. But I'd like to know what your favourite is! If it's not on the poll, then please comment below. Have a lovely day, Jec
  7. Hello everyone! The sun's out, ice cream vans are jingling in the distance, and we're in the office thinking of our future Christmas editions. It's a funny old world, but we're quite bashful to admit that we're all loving it! back to summer, and I'm very chuffed with how this July issue's turned out. We have some fabulous makes and some clowns (I'm quite scared of these comical fellows in general, but we don't go into that. They're less scary when they're quilled.) I'd much rather hear about what's caught your fancy, though! If your fave project isn't listed, then comment below. Love, Jec x
  8. Good morning everyone, I hope you've had a lovely bank holiday weekend basking in crafts, or sunshine, or both! Mine was partially spent trying to fix my mum's sat nav instead of sewing dresses for the toy bunnies that I've been making. She did give me tea and cake, though, which made up for any losses! Speaking of crafts, I'd love to know what your favourite project from this issue is: personally, I LOVE Malcolm the dog on page 98 and Helen Cant's ice cream jewellery on page 77. If your favourite project isn't a voting option, let me know. Jec
  9. Hello everyone, I can't believe we've just had our May issue goes on sale; something that I've learnt since joining CB is that time flies fast, much faster than I would have thought! I love all of the beautiful spring and wedding-themed makes in this issue, but tell me, what project did you like best? Jec x

    April issue: Fave craft poll

    Hello everyone, I can't tell you how pleased I am with our April issue. I'm a huge fan of spring, bunnies and pink you see, and to have all three on the cover alone has got me pretty excited, and I haven't even mentioned the charms and other projects yet! Well, now I suppose I have. I'd love to hear your thoughts on the projects from this issue, and what your favourite make currently is. Jec

    I do like to go online when I'm feeling a bit strapped for time, but at the weekends I often like to pop into town and visit my local yarn shops, with 3 being quite local. Lucky me! It definitely helps when I've come across a knitting emergency, and there have been a few...and I've only been knitting since December! Oh well. Scarves away!

    Your fave project of the March issue is...

    The owl cushions were very cute. According to statistics, adding owls to anything increases cuteness by 120% Jenny. You can't deny the facts
