Doctor Who Clockwork Man

I’ve been watching so much of Doctor Who lately and one of my favourite episodes is ‘The girl in the fireplace’. If you haven’t watched this episode, you must because it’s just brilliant and if you haven’t heard of Doctor who, you’re living under a rock. Sorry.

This episode is so good but really sad as well. You just might shed a tear, if you do I don’t blame you, I almost did.   Continue reading “Doctor Who Clockwork Man”

If you liked the Gold digger jam jar that I just did, then you’ll like this one for sure. For some reason the Pirates of the Caribbean movies have been coming almost everyday this week, so i was inspired to do a nautical themed jam jar (actually this time I used a pickle jar).

Not your grandmother’s cross stitch!!

                 Me at 80 !!

I don’t know about you, but I have always thought that cross stitching and embroidery is very old ladyish ( I’ll wait when I am eighty to do it). But hello Pinterest ! It converted me to getting into cross stitching and I even begged my mum for her cross stitch stash . And I even continued something that my mum couldn’t finish. She loved it! I can’t believe she trusted my Frankenstein hands with it, which eventually became not Frankenstein hands. Completely life-changing I tell you.

             You’ve got to love Pinterest.
