This week we're all a flurry after a busy few weeks getting ready to launch our new site www.themakingspot.com.
From now on, we'll be offering you thousands of downloadable projects for all sorts of crafts over on our main website, alongside a whole host of 'how to' guides & tutorials to help you with your favourite crafts. Of course we'll still be keeping you up to date with our latest makes & posting up our favourite inspiration for craft projects on this blog, but we'll also be adding more and more projects over on the main site to keep you busy.
To celebrate the launch, we've made a video to introduce everyone to the site and explain what we're all about. You can see Lyndsey & me in action over on our You Tube debut.
I've recently enjoyed one of my favourite ever simple pleasures - a cross stitch marathon! I have a fondness for baking as well as stitching, so I set out to stitch a couple of cupcakes last weekend. The patterns for these cupcake designs are taken from a back issue of Cross Stitcher magazine, from a summer party set they featured a couple of years ago. Luckily I never throw anything away and love to hoard charts to stitch for later, so this was in my 'cut out and keep' charts file!
