I’m a music/history teacher during the day, and crafter at home. In 2012 I aimed to make all the presents we gave at Christmas. I almost made it!! As the year has progressed I have made birthday, mothers and fathers day presents and am now attacking christmas again. To add a small complication in managing my time I had my first baby in July 2013. In this blog I want to show the presents I am making, and include the odd tutorial. I do not pretend to be an expert at any of this and expect many will see easier routes to getting things done! I also use magazines and books a lot for ideas/patterns and therefore will point you in the direction of instructions for those parts, as I do not want to tred on the toes of the people who give me inspiration.
