Hello my friends.  As you are reading this, I am probably thinking “My head is going to explode” or “I want to go home and do some craft” (Notice I didn’t say the other crafty “c” word – I did promise I would not).  I am heading to the big city for a work conference.  I will love it really and I will come back bursting with enthusiasm and I will be full of ideas, but at the same time part of me will be wishing I was back at my isolated, full of sky and space home, with my family and crafty things.

A girl needs to be prepared for a city adventure.  These are some of the things I wish I was taking with me

Melbourne is a very fun and vibrant city, but it does have a fashion trend that I did follow when I lived there – black is ALWAYS the new black

Of course, I would have to add a splash of colour.  I could go elegant

Or I could go a bit more dangley

I can’t do short necklaces, but I am developing a thing for long ones

Now I know I will need to take notes.  Something cute and sweet will help me keep my sanity I think.  I actually own this one.  No need for wishing this time.

I’ll be back to the crafty stuff next week.  See you then!


I’ve added a new page today to make it easy to find where to buy my pincushions.  It just up the top there, next to the Pincushions page.

More recently, I have made the change to made to order for some of my designs.  There will always be one off, ready to go pincushions available, but some will now be made as orders are made.  This will only add a day or two to the order.

To whet your appetite, here is my newest made to order design – the rainbow.  Rainbows are so eye-catching and bright, and a natural occurance.  What better way to decorate than with all the colours of the rainbow?  I stitch this free hand, no patterns or lines, just me, a bunch of bright coloured embroidery thread & a needle.  Happy-making 🙂
