Hi I’m Abby! This blog is called Things for Boys because it’s all about the things that I make for the boys in my life, my sons Roman and Ted and the Hubby. Don’t have boys? Don’t worry, there are plenty of things for girls and mums on here too! At least 90% of my brain power is put towards crafting and cooking, so this has become a place to share with everyone all the things I get up to.

I have been sewing for as long as I can remember. I started off like many other crafty kids, making clothes for my Barbie dolls. Gosh, that was more than 20 years ago now! Knitting is a more newly acquired skill, but with several amazing knitters in the family, it was something I thought must be a subconscious skill, so I set out to teach myself. Check out my Knitting 101 series if you’d like to give it a go. I also like challenging myself and will try out new crafts or DIY projects on a whim. You can browse my Project Index here and take a look at my Tutorials here. I’ve recently branched out into designing patterns, some free, some to purchase, which you can find in my Shop.

I love cooking for family and friends… it really brings everyone together. Most weeks, we will have a guest or two stopping by to join us for dinner. You’ll find a lot of kid friendly recipes on the blog and the odd cocktail too. Who doesn’t occasionally need a cheeky drink to help them relax at the end of a busy day? You can find all my Recipes here.
