We’ve had school holidays here so I’ve been quiet online but even when I’m not on my computer much, I still check out Instagram and Facebook regularly. I’ve been continuing my Things I Know series slowly so here’s the next collection.

Spending a little time on Sunday getting ready for the week makes a huge difference at Crafty HQ. Things like prepping snacks for school lunches, folding and ironing clothes, checking the calendar for the week ahead, and listing jobs that need doing. Not always completely ‘content’ but better than when I do nothing!
This is the warmest blanket at Crafty HQ. Perfect for lying on the couch when you feel a bit under the weather.
If you cut your ribbon on an angle, it will fray less. A simple way to make it look better for longer!
Do you forget which hook size you were using for a project when you put it aside for a while? I always do! So why have I never thought if this simple trick before?! Take a photo of the hook and the project. Easy!
This crochet blanket needed some interest so I’ve added some rows of granny type sets of three stitches. I was inspired by the Attic24 Cosy Stripe Blanket.
New goals are a little scary for me – “what if I can’t do it?” says the little voice inside my head. But without goals I wander aimlessly so I know I need them. Sigh.
You don’t need to have dozens of quilting tools to cut projects. You can often use the tools you already have if you know how. Here’s how to use a square ruler to cut triangles.
