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… Read More»
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.
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… Read More»
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.
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”!
RetroMummy is giving away a gorgeous bundle of fabric called Flower Sugar. Oh, what I could do with 20 fat quarters!

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!
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.

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… Read More»
