It’s funny, how in my last post I felt like all I was posting was a backlog of challenge projects, and nothing much in the way of real-time, what-I’m-making kind of posts. And then a project falls in my lap and we bust out a project in a morning. So what I had planned to share today, from last week’s craftiness, has instead been bumped

The downside of having been away from this space is that I have quite a back-log of projects that I haven’t shared, and a challenge I am really behind on, and it feels a bit like that’s all I’m blogging about at the minute. I do try and remember that random craft projects and jumping around is kind of what I do, and what I

…Hermione’s Everyday Socks…

For the longest time, I have wanted to knit myself a pair of socks, but it felt like a Really Hard Thing to learn. After seeing so many versions of the Hermione’s Everyday Sock pop up on my instagram feed, I knew it was time to face my sock-fear head on. Except I got to the heels and knitted the wrong side. So I frogged

Oh man, August has been such a good month for reading, helped along by my travels for my dōTERRA business. I had a five hour stop-over in Sydney on the way to Adelaide, which saw one book finished, and another started. It got finished at the airport on the way home, and a third book started. I can’t remember how long it’s been since I’ve

…reusable shopping bag – free pattern…

With the recent ban on single use plastic bags, it was just the kick up the butt I needed to finally tackle a project that has been on my to-do list for, quite literally, years. I had made a reusable shopping bag previously for my mum, all the way back in 2009, and which she still uses on the regular (which I’m pretty chuffed about!), and

Just after mothers day, I noticed Kindles were on special. I’d been wanting one for ages, and having recently bought our block where we planned to spend time in a caravan, and thus space being at a premium, I thought it was as good an excuse as any to buy one (yes, I know it’s a very flimsy excuse. But anyone who’s been around here

…wip wednesday – chunky bed socks…

Earlier this year, I started the 100 days project. After much consideration, I decided to do a stash-busting project – one hundred days of using up all the odds and ends floating around in my craft room. One such leftover was a couple of half balls of gorgeous 8ply Bendigo Woollen Mills yarn, left over from my ripple. Too small to do much with, I

Oh man, I have badly neglected this space, haven’t I? I do miss it, and am hoping to get into a better rhythm of both crafting and sharing, both my projects and the fun stuff behind the scenes that has kept me away! Something I have made in the interim, has been this sweet cowl. A while back I was approached by American Yarns, asking

…sunrise at mulligans…

  A hot coffee in hand, I sat at the kitchen table, soaking in the rare silence of a house currently empty of small people. In front of me lay my daybook with a pre-Christmas to-do list a mile long. Top of the list was groceries, and new sheets to make up beds for our impending house guests. If I went early, my logic said,

onelittleword2018

  It’s been a while since I’ve done a One Little Word, but with lots of balls in the air for 2018, I wanted to go back to that idea of a theme to guide me, rather than a resolution list to fail at. Like many of my previous words, this year’s came to me at the last minute. I struggled to find a word
