Covert Robin

the covert robin button

I signed up to take part in the Cover Robin competition hosted by Rachael from Imagine Gnats, and enjoyed it thoroughly!

I was asked to make a gift for Brandi from JuBee's Craft Box, and was a wee bit stressed that her two main talents were the things I attempt too (sewing and crochet), but I was going through a Polymer Clay phase, and after stalking her pinterest and so on, I noticed a Dr Seuss love and a teal/aquamarine love, so made these:

 Hair clip in teal/aqua - the colours Brandi seemed to love and 'pin' most
Dr Seuss charm bracelet - with a fish, hat, teapot, cup, ball, and a red and blue fish

Necklace again made in Brandi's colours.

I think she and her daughter were pleased :-)

I also was very excited to receive my parcel all the way from The US from the lovely 
Valerie at The Knitted Chick

The children and I were absolutely thrilled with our gifts!
2 knitted chicks (one purple which Lucas chose and called Henry, and one yellow which Isla well and truly adopted and called Holly)

and the most stunning apron for me (please excuse the photo- had to do it in the bathroom mirror!)

Thanks Valerie!! 


I thoroughly enjoyed taking part in The Covert Robin, and would like to thank Rachael and everyone else for their hard work. 

I am also really hoping that the brilliant Brandi and the lovely Valerie will guest post here soon!


  1. awesome!! so glad that you got (and gave) such lovely things :)

  2. Thanks Rachael, the whole thing was a total pleasure!


I always love hearing from you!
Love Sarah
