Fancy some Mole sauce for your supper tonight? I discovered Mole sauce at Waitrose, I was looking for Mango Chutney and came across it! What was it? Was it made from Moles? Being inquisitive I bought a jar to take home. Mole Sauce Dark with Chocolate Rich with Chipotle Well, that’s what it said on […]

Baby Names- Elizabeth

I was amazed when researching my last blog on names, how many names derive from Elizabeth. When ever we receive an order for a personalised blanket featuring the name Elizabeth we have to discuss the font we use for the embroidery. As the image of the name above shows, the ‘z’ looks a little odd, a […]

Christmas Stockings

September seems an odd month in the Mr Mole Blankets calender. The warmer months have passed and we look forward to the busier colder months just around the corner. It seems sad to think like this, almost wishing away the summer but I love the run up to Christmas and all the excitement that comes […]

The Baby Shower

As we are always making blankets and shawls for new born babies we are increasingly receiving requests for gifts for ‘The Baby Shower’. When we started making blankets 12 years ago the baby shower was almost unheard of and we assumed the craze had come from the USA. After researching this new celebration we have […]
