Are you on Ravelry? If so, are we friends there?
Would you like to join my new Rav group - it's for people like me & you. People who like all sorts of crafts not just knitting and crocheting. I love sewing too. I love photography. I would love to be good at scrapbooking but I'm not, I suck at it.

Project Bag Swap: an invitation to join


Do you use project bags for your craft projects or WIPS?  I sure do, I use them for my knitting, crocheting, sewing, felting, button collecting, penpal writing etc but I could always do with another bag. I needed or should I say, I wanted to make another project bag when I thought I'd make two but who should I give the other bag too? Hmm, maybe you?  Perhaps you'd like a new project bag too, perhaps you want to make a project bag as well. Hmm.... let's combine the two....  a swap is born, The Project Bag Swap!

Totally love these...

Made it Monday

There are 52 weeks in a year yet they can disappear so fast, I just wanted to take a few minutes each Monday to capture (in a few words) where did the week go and to share what was made/seen/baked/eaten/heard.
Come on in & join me...

How I wash Handknits

In our household we wear a lot of hand knit & hand crocheted outfits, especially baby Laney. As you can imagine, baby Laney gets them really dirty, they always end up covered in baby food & dribble then they get tossed into a bucket until there is enough to wash!

A Creative Exchange - the making

You may remember me telling you about a Creative Exchange swap (this is what I sent & this is what I received), anyway, the time came to make something from what I received.
I put my thinking cap on & thought I could make a garland for my mum's 70th birthday which is coming up.  You see she has been a knitter & spinner for about 40 years, so I thought it would be kinda cute to add something woolly to the birthday festivities.

Something to inspire myself

Yes, this post is purely to inspire me! It's full of piccies of my beautiful baby girl & the slow growing Crochet Mood Blanket - I'm still trying to catch up with the squares but I thought if I'd put up some pics with my baby girl in them you can see the size of the blanket by using her for scale!

A moody update


Hello July! Wow, can you believe that we are half way through the year already! My lil baby girl will be 10 months old next week and I've already started to think about Christmas!
Now that we are into the seventh month, I thought I'd better make an attempt to catch up on my Crochet Mood Blanket, remember it's a small square for every day & a bigger square for every week....  well, surprise surprise, I've fallen behind joining them!

Knit & Make up

Ok, so I told you how my knitting & I 'broke up'...the good news is that we are friends again! Yay!
