Making a few changes and other stuff....

I've been having a little think & decided that I'm going to publish my tutorials as a blog of their own rather then have a tag to click at the top of the page. I know that I an guilty of following blogs by others but tend note to wander further then the first page ~ this way there's no escaping the CG&Cs tutorial...!!!

So, without further ado I'll be repeating the first two here today & hopefully adding more in the coming months. They won't all be mine ~ I'll also be sharing patterns I find on my crafty travels but I'll always link in any fab finds to the page, person, magazine or book I got it from.

Enjoy.....
