Living the simple life

I am Goth by nature, a carer by choice and a crafter by habit. living the Old Style way, spending less and making what I can myself. I follow Money Saving Expert and NYK forum avidly and am working to be debt free.


I shop wisely as every penny counts, my stock cupboard is my solution to any problem.


My home is full of craft stuff and I love making things for my grandson Michael and grand- daughter Bethany who are the reason I get up everyday. My kids are the best in the world and I thank them for being there for me and John

Very Busy October

Opened my Facebook page this week - Gin (Me) and Pickle (Michael) No sales so far but excellent feedback from my dear friends.

First of many owl families, pink one ready to photograph and blue ones on the needles.

However this is the star of the show - Tilly bud has won me a place in KnitToday magazine on the readers makes page Yay! She is from a pattern from Mary Janes Tearoom https://www.bloglovin.com/frame?blog=2980187&group=0&frame_type=b&frame=1&click=0&user=0 Such lovely patterns and easy to make.

All going well with my 100 day challenge on Frugaldom Forum - very little un-necessary spending so am heading towards the end of the year with a little savings pot in the hope of paying off my only debt early.

Had some nice successes with E bay, thinning down my stash of patterns and a couple of pieces of Hubbys memorabilia mountain.

All in all a busy but fruitful time of the year.
