Loving it

I found these gorgeous yellow ceramic beads recently when I was bead shopping, and combined with small agate round beads I am loving the contrast. Yellow is such a fantastic colour and it is so great to see it in vogue this winter.

Creative Space

For the past few years I have been making blankets for charity, which has been so great but I haven’t moved past plain stitch.

Sewing it all together..

All laid out

Very proud

So the time has come when I have decided to mix it up with an additional project- a scarf in rib-stitch for the approaching chilly weather.

Rib Stitch Scarf

Surprisingly easy and looks pretty cool. This is my project for this week (any maybe next week as well at this rate!). Happy creating…

Day Trip

I had a gorgeous day driving down to visit family for an over night stay. My mum and I stopped off at quaint Berrima on the way and enjoyed a coffee and pie from the bakery and discovered the cutest book binding store next door.

A Few Special Days in Canberra

Autumn was calling…my memories of Canberra at this time of the year inspired a short visit to see some good friends and spend some time soaking up the atmosphere at my favourite cafes. I happily sat with my laptop writing in Satis, Tilley’s, All Bar Nun and Beyond Q loving every bit of it.

My friend and I also had the opportunity to suss out Shop Handmade in Civic which is totally adorable. This is the little guy I bought to sit next to me when I write and just to make me smile. He is technically a pin cushion but I am doubtful I will be able to stick pins in him…

He was made by Red Stitch Designs, lovely.

Cutie Cheeky Bum

I also got to stay in the lovely O’Connor with a good friend and enjoyed taking a few photos of the gorgeous Autumn leaves. This is by far the most beautiful season.
