200grams of crazy colour


I had a sudden urge to experiment with changing my dyeing technique during the week and produced these massive balls of crazy colours.

Sometimes when I get it right, I get it right.

Ok, so do you remember that I made a dress and I kinda stuffed it up but it was still ok? This time I sat down, made it right and let me tell you, it is good.

Angry knitting

I don't know what you think of this project but every time I pick it up, I feel angry.

Hey look, I made mistake!

This is a show & tell where I show you a dress and you say wow but then I'll point out the mistakes...because I made a big mistake but liked the finished dress to much to not fix it!

In making and messing...

This is me sewing, it's also me 'surviving' 2yo tantrums... it's a been a week of tantrums, I need a lot of patience and sewing is calming (sometimes).

A cute way to store my iron

I hate ironing, totally hate it.
In fact, I don't even iron hubby's business shirts, nope they get a good flick when they come out of the washing machine and then are hang straight to dry so no ironing is needed but with all this crazy sewing I've been doing lately, my iron is out a lot! ..yeah, ironic
The iron was forever sitting on the kitchen bench waiting to cool down so I could put it away and hubby was getting annoyed that I would then forget to put it away and he would move it to some weird spot that took me forever to find. I needed to find a way to put my iron away whilst it was still hot.. and I found the solution.

Planning a week in craft...

I'm trying to set some tentative goals, so I can make and be happy instead of just looking of piles of things to be done.

Things I'm doing (or not doing!)

It's just turned winter here so you'd think I'd be snuggled up inside with a hot cup of tea and some crafts....well, no!
