November is NaKniSweMo. This stands for National Knit a Sweater Month. I have never done any of these month thingys. I thought I should give it a go. I have decided on the vine yoke cardigan by ysolda. In the mean time, I have been more active at plushies by laurawhere you can see what […]

Normal Service

| May 18, 2011

Normal service will resume shortly. Once I get my mojo back. Life has been throwing a few curve balls recently and the start of 2011 hasn’t been the best time of my life (quite the opposite, in fact) but I have been crafting, have wonderful new gadgets to share and possibly my most favourite finished […]

Ooh, I have an iPad. I am just testing the new wordpress app that I have just downloaded. I am rather excited!

Lovin’ The Holidays

| April 15, 2011

Oh my goodness! I am loving the Easter holidays! I am being really busy and Niamh is being really busy too. This morning we did more crafting. And it was really fun. Even though it was at 7.30am. Eeek. She had lots of fun and that’s what matters. I’ll show you what we made tomorrow, […]

FO: Raggedy Quilt

| April 14, 2011

I have a finished object to show you! I did have others but I couldn’t get a decent photo of them so they will have to wait. So yes, a while ago I posted this entry about a ragged quilt after seeing the one on Amanda Jean’s blog. I had some squares already cut out […]

Start Them Young

| April 13, 2011

It is the Easter Holidays and I am taking full advantage of it. Today I took Niamhy to Fired Arts for a spot of pot painting. She had a blast. She got very messy and had such fun. And our finished projects? A strange looking cupcake and a mismatched pot. We pick them up next […]

Sore Fingers

| April 7, 2011

I have snipped and snipped and snipped tonight. Hopefully by Sunday we will have another finished object to show you. If it survives the washing machine phase in tact! We’ll see.

The Sunflower Project – Week 1

| March 24, 2011

The last couple of weeks have been rather busy in the purple household. I have been trying to sort out our ‘junk’ room so that I have a nice little crafty room. I’m not sure if it’s big enough but that’s a whole other story. Niamhy and I have also been doing a little bit […]

Petite Purls

| March 22, 2011

I recently discovered Petite Purls which is a fantastic website filled with free baby and children patterns. And they have just released this season’s addition which is full of fantastic goodies. I can see my needles being rather busy. I particularly love Cloverfield and can see one of these on the horizon for Niamhy. As […]

And Now For Something Completely Different

| March 19, 2011

I have Amanda Jean on my blog reader list. She is fantastic and makes such wonderful quilts. On Wednesday (I think) I read her blog entry and she had made a simply beautiful rag quilt. And this got me thinking. A year ago I started making a quilt so that my not-yet-crawling daughter could play […]
