I’m a thirty-something northerner living in East London who’s never met a craft she’s not wanted to (unsuccessfully) try, or a cake she’s not wanted to (inedibly) bake. I started this blog to record these attempts for posterity, and also so that I’d have the illusion of someone looking over my shoulder, nagging me to finish knitting those socks I started several months ago, or to whisper in my ear “Didn’t you promise your workmates some macarons?”


This is me, shortly after I realised I’d sewn my knitting needle case too short for the zipper I had bought. I do things like this on a regular basis.


Any comments gratefully received. Especially if they contain advice on how to sew buttonholes or decorate a cake without getting icing in my hair.

Hope you enjoy!
