Look book! Creative Walls

Whether you rustle up beans on toast from your basement flat or cook your supper on a rusty Rayburn in your country pad, your home is your castle. A book shelf always speaks a thousand words but don’t let your conversations stop there. Adorn, hang, stick up and pin, the walls of your home are just waiting for to document your goings on, real life scrapbooking. Catalogued clutter is cool.

Creative Walls – How to Display and Enjoy Your Treasures collections is a ‘living Pinterest’. This new book by Geraldine James applauds hoarders like us and says it’s ok to collect, it’s what you do with it that counts.  

Be inspired and make a granny square

It never fails to surprise us how quickly our passionate Mollie Makes readers start and complete projects from the magazine. It seems that no sooner the latest issue has hit the doormat that the needles are out and the crochet hooks are whizzing! From the felt gadget holder, to the apple cosies and strawberry pin cushions we love hearing about the successes (and mishaps!) you have with projects. Over the last few months we have seen some gorgeous examples on Facebook and Twitter and what’s really really nice is how you help each other out – how very kind! This year crochet granny squares have gone down an absolute storm and we have been thrilled by the response we have had from you lovely readers about our fab Jane Brocket crochet tutorial we featured in issue 2. So hot on it’s heels. we thought we would share with you a wonderful granny square project one of our favourite bloggers has been working on.
