I’m Diana, also known by my childhood nickname “Meschok” which means bag in Russian. This is a blog about my craft projects. I’m obsessed with knitting, sewing and all things craft and have created this site to share what I make. I also review craft books in the “Books” section and write about craft-related outings and craft shops on the “Places” page.
An important theme of my work is resourcefulness. When I first got into knitting and sewing, I had almost no spare money for my hobby and had to make do with the cheapest materials and resources. While my crafts budget is a bit larger now and I occasionally splash out on some nice yarn or fabric, most of my material is still very cheap and I always use what I have as resourcefully as possible. I hope this blog will inspire others to do the same!
I’m based in London and am always happy to hear from other craft enthusiasts.
