Welcome to my blog that aims to document my crafting, baking, knitting, sewing and in 2014 crocheting! I hope it provides you with some inspiration for your own crafty accomplishes. Based in the Berkshire I started this blog in 2012 as a way of taking a break from writing my PhD (a historical analysis of Blue Peter, in case you wondered). I finished my PhD in 2013, but had grown to love the 'write ups' of each crafty activity I did - it's great to look over past posts and see all the items I've made over the past few years. At the time I was living in a rather cute garden cottage, so thought the name 'Little Old Lady Makes' would be rather apt.
There will be a bit of everything within this blog, as I enjoy trying new makes and an excuse to buy new crafting items . . my craft room and kitchen aren't bursting at the seams yet. When I'm not sat in an archive reading room wading through reams of documents or radio/television programmes, I shall be crafting and baking to my hearts content. I hope you enjoy following my adventures!
