its time to catch up.


Here i am sitting in the humidity and cooling down after some housework, ie 3 bathrooms to be exact.
2 glasses of water and a cup of white tea i feel more comfortable. I have been catching up on my blog readings list and i can see that every one has had a creative and joy filled Christmas and New Year.

So i thought i will show what ive been doing in the way of crafting...



This lovely woolen vest was Rods. After some tlc and mending i cricheted a flower button and added a brooch backing ...this was a perfect present for Cassandra as she is an artist and loves all things vintage.


This was Rods present. Inspired by our trip to the south bank markets in Brisbane where they were selling these shirts. Made from 100% quilting craft fabric. This is a little bit big so I will take it in for him and adjust the pattern.

Crochet this 4ply scarf using the crystal motif pattern from Sasha Kagan "crochet insprations". I beaded the 2 end motifs for a bit of weight and bling.


Covered this bag using 4ply cotton yarn. As you can see it has been well used but there was nothing wrong with the lining.


Made this dress which i wore Christmas day, which i teamed up with my crochet bag i made and lined with this lovely craft cotton...yes there are two craft pockets plus i also inserted a zip.

my own home grown potatoes and spring onions..will definitely grow potatoes again.
So or should i sew now to my next project which i cant show you yet as it is a birthday gift...but i was inspired by a photo advertising.....in one of my crochet magazines.

Keep you posted.

  1. You've made many lovely things. It's great to eat your own produce. We are still eating our own fruit and vegetables and potatoes.
