The One With Mushrooms, Doors and Hammers

Yes, I know. I am three days late posting this. I actually wrote it Sunday afternoon (because I am turning over a new organised leaf) and all I had to do was upload the photos. Easy as, shouldn't take too long. Until! My normally well behaved laptop decided that uploading photos was beneath it, and … Continue reading The One With Mushrooms, Doors and Hammers

The Eggcellent Blog Post

By Teayl. It is heading towards Easter, there is an abundance of ovoid shaped chocolates in the shops and people are getting ready to symbolically celebrate the sacrifice, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. As a child I often wondered what chocolate Easter eggs had to do with my family's yearly celebration Passover. It wasn't … Continue reading The Eggcellent Blog Post

The One With Creativity, Or A Lack Thereof

There are some days when I have so much creativity bubbling inside of me that I feel like I could shoot wool from my fingertips and instantly crochet it my creative-beam eyes. Ironically enough, those days I get hardly anything done. My brain is overloaded with oodles of brilliant ideas, my heart is beating fast … Continue reading The One With Creativity, Or A Lack Thereof

The One With A Package Of Untold Delight

There was this pretty fabric, just sitting at Craftsy. Sitting there, just waiting for me to buy it. Taunting me, almost, softly saying 'what are you waiting for? You know you want me...' But I was strong, people, I was strong! I resisted the siren call of the pretty fabric. For about three months. After endlessly watching … Continue reading The One With A Package Of Untold Delight

The One With…Well…Not A Boyfriend

It's about to begin. It's closing in, and we're all about to be drowned under the 189 million roses that will be purchased over Valentine's Day. Actually, it's not that bad. I can appreciate a holiday that seems to breed extreme levels of mushiness purely for the entertainment factor. Pointing and laughing is very appropriate under … Continue reading The One With…Well…Not A Boyfriend

The One Where Money Solves Everything

What do you do when you have a problem? Throw money at it! Solves everything. Yes, I am fully aware that there are several problems with that statement (many, many things actually) but in this case it is quite simply true. My crochet pots, which previously had the unfortunate habit of toppling over, have had a change of heart. … Continue reading The One Where Money Solves Everything

The One With Instructions for Bees (And Sheer Corniness)

I love romance, just like any other female. I binge watch Pride and Prejudice, sigh over the man opening the door for his girl, sniff at red roses dreamily and I've even taken a photo of complete strangers snuggling on a bench watching the sunrise. But there is only so much hearts and flowers one can sew before one … Continue reading The One With Instructions for Bees (And Sheer Corniness)

The One With Babies and Bears

I have long been of the opinion that chocolate is the complete cure-all. There is now further proof that it really can cure anything, including pregnancy! While out with friends the other night enjoying hot chocolates, my very pregnant friend - who was overdue by about 5 days - went into labour! It was quite exciting, and eight hours later … Continue reading The One With Babies and Bears

The One With Red Gloves And Quick Unpicks

After a mere two weeks notice and two weeks madly sewing (eating? Pah! for weaklings! And sleeping? Only after I drop from exhaustion!) my Partner-In-Craft and I had a stall at the Kalamunda Markets!! They are one of the more well know markets in my fair city and has been dream of mine for years to … Continue reading The One With Red Gloves And Quick Unpicks
