On the menu – health food kick

Friday I can not get enough of Minimalist Baker’s recipes at the moment; I’m not vegan or gluten free but the recipes are perfectly adaptable if you don’t mind some dairy or gluten in your food and anything that increases my wholegrain, fruit and vegetable intake is fine by me. I thought I’d give the…

The Tamsin Trail

I’ve lived near Richmond Park for nearly 12 years now and one of the things I’d always meant to do, for probably nearly all that time, was to do the Tamsin Trail, which is a route around the edge of the park. For some reason, for all that time, I thought that the route was…

Sneak peek – things I’m interested in

I haven’t had much creative time this week (unless you count kitchen time, which I think does count) and I’ve been missing it. I did have a chance, however, to start a new Lisa Congdon class on Idea Generation, the first exercise of which is to list things you’re interested in, so ….. ta da!

5 things I liked this week – 17.3.17

1. I went for a really nice walk in Richmond Park on Monday, the weather was gorgeous and there was a spring in my step, so I managed to walk right across to the other side of the park and back, well sort of back, I ended up going the wrong direction and coming out…

On the menu – a mish-mash

Friday Smarties flapjack from Tanya Bakes; this was nice, although me trying to cheat a little, as I didn’t have the right size tin, didn’t work too well, as putting it into one half of a bigger tin just meant that some of the sugary – buttery goodness leached out. Still, even with that, the…

Sneak peak – diamond hex quilt progress

It’s been a busy week, so I’ve just been working on the diamond hex quilt when I can. I’ve been working on it pretty constantly, since I last posted a full picture of it and I got to that magic moment this week, as I spread it out, to work out where the latest completed diamond…

5 things I liked this week – 10.3.17

Like pretty much everyone else, Ed Sheeran’s new album (What Do I Know? is my absolute favourite but they’re all brilliant). Discovering pizza a portafoglio. In my ‘day job’ I work from home and last time I was in the office was ooh about 4 years ago, so long, the company I work for has…

On the menu – **** you TMJ

I’m back (at least for the moment) to eating reasonably normally again, my TMJ is currently not as bad as it can be, probably due to me being careful about what I’ve been eating for the last few weeks but whereas my jaw may be feeling better, the rest of me isn’t, trying to find…

Sneak peak -😳

Ummm, I got those Farrah Top straps a bit wrong.     I will go back and work out where I went wrong and correct it but ooh I really don’t want to right now.  

Concertina book

Concertina book from J Lacer on Vimeo (bit jerky, sorry, it’s not the best video but on the plus side, it’s short!) I worked my way through Lisa Congdon’s Creative Bootcamp over on Creativebug, sharing the various pieces I did in my Sneak Peaks (here, here, here, here and here) but I never did blog the final…
