Day Owl..

I’m so very lucky that our new addition to the family has turned from a little night owl into a beautiful day owl. No more getting up through the night for numerous feeds and she’s not even 3 months old yet. I ended up getting inspiration from a pattern off Ravelry (but of course). I […]

Wishing Tree Bear

Yesterday afternoon I finished up the bear that I started a week or so ago to put under the wishing tree in our local Kmart. I love how it turned out and hopefully it will make one little person happy. Another project was also completed today and that was a cow lovey blanket for our […]

Mojo returning

I sat down after a very long craft hiatus and finished the stuffed Hoot toy that I started well over 4 months ago for my daughter. I honestly got sick of just seeing its big blue body floating around the house collecting dust. I think the cat even swiped at it a couple of times. […]

Handbag for a little lady

I couldn’t even tell you when I started this bag. It was either at the beginning of last year, or even the year before. All I know is that I finally sewed a lining into it this morning. And lazily I machine sewed it. Our daughter, at every chance, has been carrying around my handbag […]

Fancy Filigree Bookmark

This bookmark is going to be the death of me! I just can not seem to get the pattern right. I have made two bookmarks to the finish and have pulled out at least another 3 or 4! I am in love with the look of it and will not let it beat me. It […]

Dainty Birthday Earrings

So as it was my birthday yesterday and we are going out tonight to celebrate to my favourite place (Taco Bill!) I decided to make myself a nice little pair of earrings to go with my dress that I will be wearing. I haven’t worn dangly earrings in about 12 months so I thought it […]

Catherine’s Wheel Baby Afghan

So I was cruising around Ravelry today and saw something I was interested in which led me to one site that then lead  me to another site when I then ended up on the Crochetville Forums. Down the bottom of that page there was a little 5 min video of some bloke working on a […]
