:: What I’ve Been Doing

Hello kittens! How are you going? I’m going okay. Having a bit of a weird week, but I’m soldiering on. My horoscope told me that this was going to be such an awesome year, but I am born on the cusp of Pisces and Aries, so maybe I’m reading the wrong one?! Have you been doing A Year Of Australian

:: Win An Advance Copy Of ‘Craft For The Soul’

  Hi gang! Are you well? I am well. I’ve been doing some early morning crochet/coffee drinking/Brothers & Sisters watching. It’s a good way to start the day, a bit like getting in some ‘day off’ before the work day starts, if that makes any sense! I wanted to let you know that my next round of eCourses has been

  It’s Friday! Yay! I’ve tucked my work away for a while to read some cute letters that arrived for #52hellos this week and watch my favourite movie. This week’s hello is from my cute friend Betsy.

:: Slow Down Rewards

  Let’s talk about this… I’m making a granny square blanket. I’m actually doing it pretty quickly, but it’s a repetitive task and ‘quickly’ means it’ll be done in a month or so. I LOVE doing things that take a bit of time. I understand, though, that not everyone is like me. Some people just can not be bothered to

Hullo there. How are things with you? Things are good with me, I’ve been doing some fun stuff and feeling the year gather momentum. Can you believe that we’ll be into March in a couple of weeks?

:: 52 Hellos : Week 05

52 Hellos is one of my favourite things about my life. I head to the post office most days to check for letters. Then, when I have some spare time, I make a big cup of tea and read one or two. There were quite a few treasures this week!  (And still a few that I have not shared here

:: Then & Now – Granny Squares, Clogs and White Floors

2015 – sorry about the floor…   So. When we moved in here just over 7 years ago, we painted a lot of the floors white. The floorboards were oil stained and revolting so it seemed like the best and freshest approach. You can see here and here and here and here how the floors started out back in the day (in 2007!) Since then we’ve
