The One With A Sting And A Soothing

Please, please tell me that I am not the only one to have done this. Last week I was shopping on a wool-selling site called Love Crochet. Brilliant shop, amazing wool at what I thought was really, really good prices. So I bought a heap, was super excited and counting the days until it arrived. Then! I checked … Continue reading The One With A Sting And A Soothing

The One With An Epiphany And An Owl

A few weeks ago I was feeling a bit... flat. I was tired, felt like I was chasing my tail all the time and never getting anywhere. I didn't even feel like making anything because nothing seemed to come together. Quilting made my head hurt, crocheting made my fingers hurt and even thinking about updating the Etsy … Continue reading The One With An Epiphany And An Owl

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.

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
