and now for something cute....

I have got the crochet bug at the moment
and really wanted to share this cutie little apple cozy I made.....
Not only do they keep your apple free from bumps and bruises in your handbag or backpack
but they look super cute on your apple too :)
as I am still a beginner at following crochet patterns,
so I was really pleased at how easy this pattern was to follow.
I purchased a PDF from
Before I knew it the pattern was in my inbox ready for me to print off and start crocheting.
If you are not able to crochet, Kristie also sells finished Apple cozies :)
I'll be back again soon with more goodies to share,
in the meantime you have yourself a very creative day!

To everything there is a season....

I was really pleased to have this published a little while ago in

To every thing there is a season,
and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
Ecclesiastes 3:1

Hope you are having a lovely day!

Published in
Australian Scrapbook Creations
No.74 (Vol 8 No 11)
as part of the 20, 40, 60 minute challenge.
I created this set of 3 ATC in 60 minutes.
Using Products from the Prague Collection
Just doing some catch up on my blogging....
while I was having my little 'holiday' from blogging I was happy to have had a few pieces published in some lovely Australian Magazines.
This was a super fun challenge 3 paper artists were given a beautiful and generous collection of Darkroom Door and we were also given a time limit that we had to adhere too.
Sarah Schwerin was given 20mins, Michelle Loffler was given 40 mins
and I was given 60 minutes.
I was very pleased I was given the 60 minutes time slot ;)
the other girls made such gorgeous ATC in their time limits and I was so thrilled to have been included in the same challenge as them both as I admire their work so much!
Back soon with more to share,
have a happy day!

the best place in the house....

My mum often said that my childhood cat 'kitty' always knew the best place in the house, be it in front of our wood heater or curled up on my chenille bedspread.....oh how she was right!
The years have past, and 'kitty' has long since departed but one thing remains the same,
Cats can still be found comfortably sitting in the best place!
Our lovely 6year old Burmese has indeed found her best place in the house.

My newly finished project!
I'm rather proud of this crochet rug and wanted to share it with you all :)
it is 8 x 12 squares and is roughly the size of a singe bed.
It is made out of 8ply pure new wool, so is lovely and warm and quite heavy.
I started it in June and am so pleased I finished it before the cold weather has left us so we can all enjoy it's warmth!
Hope you are having a delightful week ♥
