As you can probably guess, I have a yarn stash that can only be described as an accumulation beyond life expectancy. Still...I did not have all the colors in THIS yarn needed for my new design line of knitted and crocheted wearables.
My great scrap adventure continues. Actually, it’s more like a great video game that I think I am losing! A huge amount of scraps went into this project (I first posted about this project here) and it was fun and easy. A scrap crocheted rug! I cut strips of scraps, 1 1/2″ wide, choosing my longest scraps. I then chain pieced them together. I did several batches. I have seen that some press the strips in half – hah! Not going to happen. Some roll the “fabric yarn” into a ball. Double Hah! Not going to happen. By making ...read more
Yep, time for the season opening of my 'Fall Chicken Farm Art Center Booth' on 'First Saturday, September 3rd'. I'll be raising the Pink Tent and setting up for only the second time this year. Seems like March was ages ago.
Anyway, here's a preview of what's on the blocking table, what's been in my ... read more
Early Friday morning, we sat on the porch, third coffees on the table between us, me with my crochet, Julian with his moleskin, and we brainstormed all the things we’d love to achieve around the farm over the weekend. Then we marked off the most important seven for Friday and set to work. It was mostly a day of orchard planting. The raspberry patch was finished off – 5 metres long by 2 metres wide, thoroughly dug over with old duck bedding, liberally seasoned with the neighbour’s horse poo, edged with timber and secured with a nice deep row ...read more
Today was Crochet workshop day with the W.I. And what a lovely eager and friendly group they were. I had a lovely day.
I'm so proud of what they all achieved.
This fabulous issue of Michaels Create! magazine is in used, but very good condition. 106 pages of great ideas for crafting.

I decided to take stock of the projects I am working on. This is similar to reading – I am always reading about five books at a time, because I like reading what I feel like at that moment. Same with needlework, it is much more fun to be able to pick and choose what I feel like. But when I am close to finishing a project I am normally quite keen to get it done.
Yesterday I made two bags. I have a friend who is always knitting for everyone. I can’t remember her ever knitting something for herself ...read more
So much for my 'Stash Busting' proclamations of Use It or Lose, Sue...and just when I was making headway in that regard. So much for the '4R's Bucket List'...you know the one where last year I ... read more
Of course I will post another "black" also!
Last night it was around 6 degrees Celsius here - the coldest temperaw ture for June since I don't know when. Tonight is shaping up to be just as cold, so we have the aircon on to try and keep us warm. I hear that it has been below freezing elsewhere, so wer are pretty lucky I guess!
I have been very ...
