In bed with a Boy & Bunting Episode 3

Hello Lovelies!

TODAY I BRING YOU....a brand spanking new episode of "In Bed With A Boy & Bunting"!
This is episode 3 from me (check out episode 1 and episode 2). It's long over due, but felt like the right moment to get back into bed and in front of the camera.

Once again I get carried away and natter on and on about, well, EVERYTHING!

Go pop the kettle on grab an ice cream or something cold (we're in the midst of a heat wave, pour me a PiƱa colada!) and join me in bed as I talk your ear off!

Some Links and Info from the Episode

This was such a joy to find hiding in my mail box after returning from my trip to London!
I've already started flicking through the pages and have started working on a lovely little pineapple amigurumi pattern.
Whimsical Stitches by Lauren Espy is shaping up to be a true crocheters dream! I cant wait to film a detailed book review and share a little more insight and info on the book.

Here's a little peak at the cute pineapple that I'm making. He is practically perfect in every way! What a lovely design and a really fun make!


It seems to be all about books in todays episode.
Here are some of the books that I've been working through over the past weeks:
  • Heartburn by Nora Ephron
  • Notes On A Nervous Planet by Matt Haig
  • After You by Jojo Moyes
  • Reasons To Stay Alive by Matt Haig

Final book from todays episode, The Atrist's Way by Julia Cameron. I haven't actually started this book yet. But from what I understand and have been told, it's a corker of a book.
It's a twelve week programme working on developing creativity and maximising your creative focus. I'm going to get started on this book within the next few weeks and wandered if you guys would like to join me?

I'll write a blog post later this week explaining how we will organise our "book club" and we can work through the book together (Over the 12 week period) supporting and encouraging one anothers creative development.
Sounds like a plan!!!

Finally for me today...

This glorious bundle of rainbow gorgeousness!!!
This will be the cover for that rather delightful (I just vomited) stool that I bought for a bargain price of 3 euros. Watch this space and see how this turns out.


That's all folks!!!
Oh! Please do let me know what you think I should do about my little moving home/ sorting my belongings dilemma. I'm really interested to hear your perspective on what I should do!

Enjoy the rest of your week, you gorgeous bunch of crafters!


  1. Hi Matt. I'm happy for you, that you're going back home after so many years. Your parents and friends must be thrilled. To answer you about what to do with your animal heads, I would sell them. This way, someone else gets to enjoy them, you make a little money, and then years down the road, if you really want to, you can make more. You may even find at that time that you've moved on from wanting them, and may want something else to decorate your new home with. Keep up the good work with your blog, your videos, patterns and book reviews (I've even asked for Lauren Espy's book for Christmas and it's only July!). Best of luck, Nancy.

  2. Hi Matt, lovely to see another episode! It sounds like you had an amazing time dancing in England and it's exciting that you're moving back! Regarding your projects, my instinct is that you should keep them. You put so much work into those animal heads and they look incredible! Keep them! Could your parents maybe store them for you until you are living in a bigger place? Although, I know that it is freeing to unburden yourself of possessions, so if that feels right, then that could be the thing to do. If you do sell them, though, you should make sure you get a good price for them - they are works of art! (My feeling is still that you should keep them if you think that you will want them for a home in the future - but you've got to follow your heart/gut!)
    Looking forward to seeing your finished stool - love how the cover looks so far! Maria xx

  3. If you are leaning towards selling the animal heads, then I think you should go for that. Just a thought, but you could sell some and keep 1 or 2 of your absolute most favorite.
    Looking forward to the reading group!
