On my desk this week – 15 February 2017

The weeks are flying by this year already, so looking forward to spring coming.  I’ve got a few new projects on the go this week.  Two are long(ish)-term ones that I can hop in and out of to suit my mood and time availability. First up, I’ve finally started the Persian Tiles crocheted blanket by Janie Crow.  This has been on my ... Read More »

Coconut Ice

I’m not a huge sweet fan, and will almost always choose something savoury instead, however sometimes only sweet will hit the spot.  This coconut ice is really quick and easy to make, although I needs to set in the fridge for a few hours, preferably overnight.  I make mine in my food mixer because I’m lazy but it can be ...

Woolly Bully

Just  before Christmas I treated myself to a copy of Vanessa Mooncie’s fantastic book, “Animal Heads – Trophy Heads to Crochet”.  Once I had looked through it, I wanted to make almost everything, but once I put my sensible head on and told myself I was only allowed to do one until I had some other projects finished, I decided ...

A Stitch in Time

Hello, little blog, it’s been way too long since I last updated.  The intention was there but somehow life, laziness, time, and other stuff all just seemed to get the better of me.  However, I’m now back (still with what feels like a million ongoing projects, recipes in my head, crafty things I want to do, and places I want ...

Product Review – Morphy Richards Soup Maker

I had a department store gift card which expired today.  I had sort of forgotten about it over Christmas, but suddenly remembered at the weekend and didn’t have a clue what to buy with it.  I neither needed nor wanted more clothes, shoes, makeup, perfume etc, so opted for them old fallback – something for the kitchen.  We have plenty of ...

Welcome to My New Home

Hello, new visitors and old; welcome to introductory post for Oblibby.com, my new home on the Web.  I decided it was time for a change, and what better time than a new year to implement all the new things – look, start, Wed address, direction, and focus. I’m going to be posting a recipe every Thursday, with the aim to up this ... Read More »
