On Instagram in May

I can hardly believe that it's the last day of May- just where is the time going this year? May was a lovely month with lots of sunshine. I like to make the most of it and spend lots of time outside at this time of year- stitching in the garden with a cup of tea and some homemade cake is my favourite thing! Here's a look back at what else I got up to in May, through my Instagram photos...


Back in this post I shared the How To to make these Liberty fabric scrap, heart shaped shoe clips. It was finally warm enough for me to wear them this month- it takes a lot to remove me from my boots!


Jewellery making at lunchtimes at the day job



Usually I do most craft fairs in the winter months but this year I'm trying to do more throughout the year. I've joined the Made in Colchester Collective (more on this soon) and I'm now taking part in regular events with them.


I lined these vintage suitcases to use as props at craft fairs- I'm so pleased with how they turned out!


Sharing new jewellery packaging ideas


I bought a selection of beautiful Fenella 2ply yarn by Susan Crawford to use in some new fair isle jewellery designs. It's been a bit of a hectic month and I haven't been able to get on with it as much as I would have liked, so watch this space, hopefully next month I'll be able to share some finished designs!


I bought a woolly jumper in a charity shop that had suffered a felting accident! I though it would be perfect for How To projects, but first I used a small piece to create my Workshop Planner. One of my big goals for this year is to create a regular workshop programme, so this is my first step


Nelson cat is only too happy to lend a paw when I'm crafting!


Enjoying the sun! He's got such a cute fluffy tummy



Baking! Making ginger cake and enjoying tea, cake and crafting in the garden. Check out the flip flops, it was such a hot day!


When I was younger I absolutely loved S Club 7. I saw them when I was 13 and I was so happy to get the chance to see them again at the 02 in London earlier in the month. It took me back to being 13 again!





The garden has been looking lovely and there have been plenty of walks in the countryside in May


An evening walk by the river. I love living near the water


Family time... A steam fair came to town and Mr Writer, my sister, my niece and I had a great afternoon- this is my sister and my niece on the carousel.

Hope you all had a lovely May. You can follow me on Instagram here, I'd love to follow you too!
