Tales from the Woolly Garret – Poncho Love

Oh boy! I have been completely blown away by the response to my End Of Summer Sale. I have reduced adult ponchos and woolly wraps by forty per cent, so I guess that is a really good reduction, and I’m thrilled that so many of you have taken advantage of this. It’s awesome that so […]

Rainy Day Activities – A Woollen Flower Brooch.

Having been out for a 5 mile walk this morning, enjoying what was a lovely Spring day, here in Northumberland, I’ve been spending the afternoon, experimenting with making woollen flowers.

A Hug For Vanessa

I started by explaining how I made armwarmers when I first started woolly pedlaring, but forgot to have pair handy to show folk. Same with […]

That Old Chestnut – A Healthy Work Life Balance

We’ve just got back from our second 4 mile walk in a fortnight. When you live in beautiful rural Northumberland, it’s a crime not to get outdoors. No need for the gym with hills like these. It’s all about getting a healthy work life balance, which, when you’re self employed, is easier said than done. […]
