Katwise Sweaters..


I bought the PDF tutorial from Katwise a little while ago and was very impressed.  Now, I don’t sew (I do wish I could!) but, reading these instructions seemed pretty straightforward to me….all you experienced needle and threaders would no doubt find this pretty easy.  There are so many combinations and colours you could use, so, even though you can purchase one of the ready made creations – you have to be quick as they seem to sell as soon as they are listed – why not make your own!  A trip to the charity shop for some materials and anything is possible.

One day soon I might even take the time to start sewing properly and share my creations with you!

Amber Studios Wearable Art..

I don’t spend a huge amount of money on clothes….but for those of you who do like to invest,(and I do appreciate that some clothing are great investment pieces, or if you just have to have it and you can afford it….why not?), you have to go and check out Amber Studios on Etsy…..I spent the last 30 minutes in awe of the beautiful pieces for sale there!


I dare you not to be impressed!

Luz Patterns..Crochet Bags..

Take yourself off to Luz Patterns on Etsy…..we all love a good crochet bag but how expensive are they??? If you are already good with the hook just get a good pattern and make one yourself, if you aren’t good with the hook…why not?  Go to a class, study You Tube videos, it’s not as difficult as you think….

Feast your eyes on my favourites below and then just click on the link at the bottom and decide on your favourite patterns, so much more than just the fabulous bags….if you make any I would love to see your end result!

Have a bright and happy day!

Start Calling it your Plan…


I’m not good at this….I have had lots of dreams always dashed by my “I can’t do that” attitude, or there really isn’t a point because everyone else does it better….For this reason I have dabbled, I am good at some things and frustratingly not good at others…I can never decide which “dream” to go with…. it sometimes feels like a waiting game….trying out lots of new things waiting for “the one”.

Christopher on the other hand is brilliant at it…. he dreams he wants to do something, then he plans it, then he does it….actually makes it look very simple.  It’s almost like he ticks it off a list in his head until another dream comes along, then he brilliantly sells all the things he needed for the last project before starting on the next one….genius….

So, a bit of a brainstorming exercise to come….decide on a project, plan it, and do it…..

A weekend away now with the girlies, maybe some planning there….

Can I change my scatter brained way of thinking, or is that just the way I am?….we shall see!
