The little awards season

Hello all! We’ve finally returned from our two and a bit months of travelling around Tanzania and Zanzibar. Climbing mountains, swimming with turtles, laying under the stars. Sigh. But we’re happy to be back to the UK with it’s freakishly cold March weather. Brr.  But unfortunately for this blog, we’ve had to hit the books…

A little hello

Hello all! Happy new year! And a happy 1st birthday to the little pomegranate blog! Whoop! We made it this far. Thanks for all the support, follows, views, likes. It is all so appreciated. Just to let you know, I’m actually travelling for 2 months so alas, no crafting going on over here (don’t think…

A little tee hee

My sewing skills are still very much in the ‘extreme beginner’ realm (remember my maxi skirt fail?). That said, I have since managed to make a maxi skirt win! But I’m afraid that’s not what today’s post is about. It’s actually about an experiment with the remaining cloth from the maxi skirt. I had about…

The little lion king

I’ve got some good news and some bad news? Which would you prefer first? Let’s go with the good: I’ve got a new pattern for you! Whoop! And now for the bad… Tree and I are gearing up to go off travelling for a bit so unfortunately there may be a bit of a dip…

A little leafy

What an exciting week! I don’t know about you guys, but I religiously look at my stats…possibly on the obsessive side. But each view brings me sheer delight. Each ‘like’ and new follow is announced to the family at dinner. And this week I had the pleasure of explaining what ‘Pinterest’ is to everyone because I logged…

A little bit dotty

Just before the summer I got the idea in my head that I wanted to learn Arabic calligraphy. A couple of years ago I did a bit of research and found out that there’s a lot more to it than first meets the eye. It’s not just about curling letters weaving out words of prayer-…

A little vintage touch

Now, I’ve been sitting on this pattern for weeks. Weeks. It’s not that I’ve been keeping it to myself, it’s just that I’ve had the biggest mental block ever. It’s not for lack of stories to tell or pattern to post. I just haven’t been able to make a post. I’d sit here, write a…

The little bunny blanket buddy

Hello? Is anybody there? Yes? Oh good. I thought maybe you might have been put off by all the spider webs and tumble weed passing through this blog space that you might have all wandered off. What can I say? It’s that time of year again. Uni has started back up and it being our final year…

A little pin puff

Crafters use an awful lot of pins. Hijabis (someone who wears hijab/ headscarf) use a whole ton more. As one of both, can you imagine the amount of pins I have lying around? And when you use pins every day, having to store them in those pesky pin wheels is a real pain…especially when you’ve…
