Today is my blog’s seventh birthday!

Here’s my very first post on New Year’s Eve 2011. My blog content hasn’t really changed at all from what I proposed on that very first post. I still enjoy writing it and sharing my photos, thank you for reading. It would be like pointlessly talking to myself, if not for you.

Hello and Welcome to new readers. I’ve felt surprised, and frankly delighted, that so many of you have started following this blog during the last year, even with the minimal craft content. Thank you also to my regular readers, I know some of you have been coming here for years now. I love hearing from you.

This year I haven’t been able to make much, as you know. I injured my hand in April and I am (not) enjoying a period of enforced rest from all craft. Of course it’s also affected other aspects of day to day life. I’ve had to learn to ask for help, and accept that there are just things that I cannot/should not do. Things are definitely improving, but it’s very gradual.

Reading last year’s round up post I see I did tempt fate by confidently stating I’d have at least one finished sock to show at the end of this year. Has this year been all about the curse of the sock….?

If you fancy seeing my previous annual round ups, they’re all here:

2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017

Has anybody been with me from the beginning?


I hope 2019 is a fabulous year for you, that you are happy, healthy and content.

Happy New Year!

  1. Years and years!!! From almost the beginning (16th Feb 2012… I just checked when I first made a comment!!!) …. and still here (just!). I think your photos and writing have improved soooooo much since those early days. Very glad you are still here. X

  2. It’s been such a joy reading your posts and looking at your photos!!! Thank you and I hope you go on with this lovely blog, even if you cannot focus on crafting as much as you would like to! At the same time I wish you continuous progress with your hand.
    Happy New Year to you and yours!

  3. Happy New Year and Blogiversary! Lovely pics :)I’ve been following since about 2014 – I’m trying to rejuvinate my blog this year but we will see…

  4. No idea when I first stumbled over you in your “little room”, but you’ve been part of my blogging life (and more) for what feels like a very long time. Yay for that! Your photos, makes, bakes, walks and stories are always inspiring <3

  5. I am a relatively new blogger and stumbled on “your little room”. Love your photos and I hope your hand heals soon so you can get back in the swing of things. Happy New Year to you.
