I love this time of year for so many reasons – the excuse to make new summery things, crafting al fresco – but top of my list has to be the Mollie Handmade Awards. It’s our way of celebrating creativity, from small side hustles to more established brands, and entry is via a Pinterest board (see page 50)! It couldn’t be easier to get involved, but there’s often one thing that stands in the way – confidence. I’ve spoken to so many creatives who felt their work wasn’t good enough, or that they weren’t quite ready to enter. And, I always say the same thing – go for it anyway!

“Plants have always filled my home. It’s the first thing I notice missing in a space. To me, they bring such life and colour – a bit of nature‘s magic brought indoors – and turn a house into a home. Some of my plants are now older than my kids, aged 11 and 19 years – oh, the stories they could tell! Inspired by my plant babies, this design combines not only my love of all things botanical but a love of colour and stitching too.

Of course the bonus is the end result which gives you plants…
