This Cake is Damn Good

My last post was about taking inspiration from Great British Bake Off.This week’s inspiration came in the form of Earl Grey and lemon drizzle loaf cake, originally it was going to be lady grey because I prefer the flavour but  it turns out I don’t have any so I went for the good old Earl instead.Continue reading “This Cake is Damn Good”

My Makes…

Things are not perfect. However, I am now able to gather enough focus and energy to write this post. Last time I wrote about obsessively making things in order to avoid negative thoughts. I’m not quite comfortable having photos taken, that will have to wait for later posts. This is the first time I everContinue reading “My Makes…”

Mollie Makes And Experimenting With Patterns​

Rekindling My Relation With Food

 Having suffered from an eating disorder, food preparation has been a fine balancing act. When I was in early recovery I had the same meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner each day.  This took away any choice and stress around meal time. I knew exactly what I was eating every day. It was also usefulContinue reading “Rekindling My Relation With Food”

Mountain Walks and Handmade Clothes

The Dolomites were exceptional.  We stayed in a beautiful town called Selva Val Gardena, or Wolkenstein if you’re a German speaker.  Writing every day, I’ve managed to collect snapshots of the holiday. I’m hoping to get that all written up  by the end of the week on my other blog, but for now, I thought I’d shareContinue reading “Mountain Walks and Handmade Clothes”

When things go wrong

It’s been  a tough couple of weeks. I’ve coped with it by closing in on myself. Isolation is my go-to defense mechanism. As such blogging has been on the light side.  Writing posts ensures I look outside my own shrinking world and gain a little perspective.  Things have settled down a little now and I’m ready toContinue reading “When things go wrong”

I Made Ten Items of Clothing

I survived the day, although it is not quite over with yet.  it’s been a bit of a challenging time for me recently so I thought I would engage in a little counting of my accomplishments. After all, that is what I started this blog. At the beginning of the year, I made a resolutionContinue reading “I Made Ten Items of Clothing”

Here you go, a post about things I made

This week has been more writing than making, I am trying desperately hard to try and get the first 15,000 words of my novel to the Yeovil Literacy prize at the end of this month. today I managed to revise 2000 words which I’m pretty happy with. However, there are still 13,000 to go. However whilstContinue reading “Here you go, a post about things I made”

Very much enjoying wearing clothes I made

I was a little sceptical about Me Made May, I’m fairly new to making my own clothes. I worried about putting too much pressure on myself.  In reality it’s been really fun. I’ve enjoyed thinking about my outfits instead of throwing on whatever’s handy.  I do not have nearly enough clothes to wear something newContinue reading “Very much enjoying wearing clothes I made”
