Summer is fast approaching, but as is often the case with Britain, you won’t always be able to tell just by looking out the window. Naturally, it’s our moral duty as crafters to encourage warmer climes by filling our homes with bright odes to the natural world. An excellent place to start is Kitty Frampton’s cheery make which you can recreate in three simple steps. Roaring renditions of ‘Rain, Rain, Go Away’ are also encouraged.
