Nuts and Bolts Sweeties

Nuts and bolts sweet mix

Look what I found in the old fashioned sweet shop in Wolverhampton last week …. 80p for 100grams …. How cute are they? I am thinking Father’s Day/mini tool already!


Yesterday  I went to see the completed benches that are part of the “Park Your Yarn” installation in St. Peter’s Gardens in Wolverhampton and which was commissioned by Wolverhampton Art Gallery. I had knitted several strips and had taken part in one of the workshops ……Park Your Yarn St peter's Gardens Wolverhampton
…… and I know that it has been very wet, but have to admit to my disappointment in the end results….. I have seen some incredible knitted installations that have taken my breathe away ….. but this isn’t the “woolly wonderland” I had imagined
 St Peter's Gardens Park Your Yarn.
I’ll just leave it at that!

Diamond Jubilee Crafts - Cadbury Miniature Chocolates

Nothing fancy today, just something to add to my bits and pieces for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee later in the summer.
Cadbury Chocolate Minatures
I’ve used scraps from my Papermania Portobello Road stack, cut to measure 1.25cm x 2.5cm, punched circles in matching papers,  crown stickers from Paperchase and peel off strips for the edges.
