Beach Baby Quilt

I can finally show you a baby quilt I finished earlier in the year because I have finally given it to the baby! It could be used as a playmat, too. I LOVE this one! I wanted something quick and easy, but something that could be for a baby or older child. I’ve had this […]

Sewing bag…

My Mum is crafty too! (That’s where I get it from, of course!) She has been stitching lately using a large wooden frame to hold her work. So she needed a bag to carry it in. Here’s what I made for her birthday, with a little zippered bag and a case for her scissors.

Christmas Table Runner

Christmas runner

Last year I decided to use up some of my Christmas fabric by making table runners. This is the one I made for my table. This year Mum wanted one so that made for a great Christmas present idea. Here’s the one I created for her. The design is my own – a combination of […]

Merry Christmas…

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I hope you get the chance  to put your feet up, enjoy the company of special people, and celebrate the joys of the Season.

Christmas Bracelet

I’ve mentioned before the lovely beading shop I visit. Last time I was there, supposedly for more Christmas star supplies, I couldn’t walk past the kit for this gorgeous bracelet. It only took me an hour or so to put together and I’m loving the “jingle bells”!

Handmade Christmas Tree

Those clever teachers have created a craft that all the kids can participate in on whichever days they attend in the weeks leading up to Christmas. A pity we won’t be […]

Beaded Wreath Ornament


This ornament was another MOPS craft. (By the way, MOPS is Mother’s of Pre-Schoolers, a group that meets with care for the kids and fun stuff for the mums.) This one uses some beads, wire and ribbon. Super quick and easy!   Learn to make these with my tutorial here: Beaded Wreath Ornament Tutorial

Ribbon Angel Ornament…

This ornament was made a few years ago at a MOPS morning. It uses a couple of pieces of wide wired ribbon, a large wooden bead and some “hair”. Another easy but pretty craft. I’m linking up to some of these crafty link parties… Everyday - It’s a Blog Party, Socialize with Me Monday to Sunday Monday - Keeping […]

Reindeer Ornament…

As we decorated the tree this year I thought I’d share some of the handmade ornaments. This reindeer must have been made by my oldest although I don’t remember where. It’s just three wooden pegs and some extra bits. Cute! I’m linking up to some of these crafty link parties… Everyday - It’s a Blog Party, Socialize with […]
