:: 52 Hellos

Harking back to the days of The Envelope Project and blogging 2009-style,  next year I’m doing a little artsy/cutesy/people-y project. It’s called 52 Hellos. It’s been rolling around in my head for a while and 2015 is the year to make it happen. Here’s how 52 Hellos goes! (You can join in too, if you like!) 1. Every week for 52 weeks I am going to write someone a letter (which I MIGHT

:: Stitch A Moomin?

Aw man! These just popped up on Twitter via those clever people at Sublime Stitching, so I had to tell you about them right away. Of course Tove is the best, but I love Sublime Stitching a lot too because they really opened my eyes to how fun and customisable embroidery could be. It’s not all geese and floral baskets, ya know? They always come up with cute ideas to

:: The Lorelei Gilmore-esque Christmas Gift Guide

I am obsessed with Gilmore girls. That’s a fact. I’m in Season Six at the moment and think that when I get to the end I am going to go back to the beginning and build some kind of Pip-GG-wiki (to rival the existing wikis!) and document all the bits I love about it the most, in one place. I really don’t know when I’ve enjoyed a series this much.

:: Please Don’t Crash, A Cute Quiz (& Some Weekend Reading)

Aw hai! How are you going, peachy-pie? I am good. I am scrambling a bit, to tell you the truth. I’ve just finished off my work for the week and we are THINKING of going camping. The problem is that (I forgot to tell you this) a lady SMASHED into the back of our car on Monday. Our car is old and strong, thank goodness, but it’s taken a bit

:: A Year Of Australian Writing : A Handy List Of Australian Literary Awards

In case you didn’t know, I’ve set myself A Year Of Australian Writing challenge for 2015. Honestly, I don’t think I’m going to have any trouble reading Australian for a year, but a few people have mentioned that it will be hard, that a year’s a long time, that there are so many great non-Australian books we’ll miss out on. Hm. Okay. Some of that is true. The part of

:: Hello Lady Faves

  Good morning! How are you? I am okay. I slept on the couch last night which was not good. Things were so noisy outside my bedroom window (in the laneway). I could not even stand it. So I went downstairs and put Gilmore Girls on and pulled a blanket over me. I think I fell asleep at around 1am. This is poopy. Meh. Anyway, I wanted to forget about

:: Crochet A Paper Chain

It’s time to decorate the house. Are you getting all festive and sparkly at yours? We are slowly getting things sorted. We’ve put the tree up and the advent too. And we’ve done our Christmas window, of course! I am going to make a few other bits and bobs over the next week… Something about making things well and truly cements the tinselly season for me. Do you feel a

:: Stella

  Aw man. My friend rang me this morning to let me know that Stella Young had passed away. I’m so sad about this, I can’t even tell you. I feel like I’ve been punched in the heart. What do we do now? Sheesh. We’ve know Stella for close to ten years, since we had our old shop in Richmond and she used to visit and come to stitching nights and the
