Back in 2016, we threw together a last minute outback road trip in the lead up to the the July school holidays. It was a total winging-it, see where the road takes us kind of trip, with not much more than a vague idea of where we were heading. Towards the tail end of our two weeks, we ended up […]

…WIP Wednesday…

Since finishing the 100 Days project, I’ve tried to stick with my newly formed daily crochet habit. For the most part, I’ve succeeded. There have absolutely been days I haven’t picked up my hook, but more days than not, I have added at least something to my Atlanticus mandala blanket. In the early days, it was easy to smash out […]

Ahead of quilt camp each year, there is always a flurry of messages about the projects being packed with intentions of working on them, or at the very least, side-eyeing the bag containing said projects and vaguely sort of mentioning we should think about possibly getting them out at some point. Last year, these discussions turned to some Pinterest inspiration […]

With a move pending, and with it, a rapid downsize of my craft room, when a 2020 stitchalong was proposed, I resisted the […]

Most years I give Blogtober a red hot go, even though blogging hasn’t really been a thing since like 2014. I often have big plans for Inktober, […]

In our homeschool, we don’t follow mainstream terms and holidays. Instead, we do shorter, six week sessions, with a week off in between each session, but even though our breaks only line up with mainstream holidays once or twice a year, the children still look forward to the school holidays. School holidays, you see, means they get to go to […]
