Life Could Be A Dream, Sweetheart…

PSX_20140831_122137

Well…. it was always going to happen.  You can’t make a car without at some point making a camper van. This idea had been mulling in my head since I made the Mini for RACPA a while back.  So, when

The Buzz

I am reeling from a major case of The Buzz.   My fingers hurt. My neck aches. I’m sleep deprived. My eyes sting. I’m acutely aware of my sinuses protesting the height of the pollen count. I’m exhausted. I’m tired

Driving Miss Daisy

It’s impossible to resist taking challenges from lovely people.  Especially when completing that challenge involves my favourite crochet skill: cabling. So when the lovely Becky, part of the RACPA team and genius behind Barely There Bears asked me how she

I LOVE Crochet Cables :D

Crochet cables are awesome. Some people find them difficult to do.  I’ve definitely found my niche.  They not only look lovely on a finished project, by adding lots of texture, but keep it interesting for me whilst I’m making it.

Good Morning Starshine

Seriously, I was probably born in the wrong decade.  I’m an 80’s kid, yet I love the music of many earlier era’s.  This one in particular never fails to get me in a hippy dippy mood.  Just makes me wanna

The As Yet Nameless Gloves and Cowl

2014-04-25 16.37.51

What feels like a hundred years ago, I was gifted a ball of scrumptious yarn by a wonderful friend.  The shades of blue and white are simply delicious, and the yarn itself is soft as soft can be.  Gnome-made and

Enough Love to Go Around

2014-03-31 16.52.58

The first item of the Hookers Day Off Project is complete.  A little later than I’d have liked, but nonetheless I’m quite proud of myself.  It’s a small lap blanket, or baby blanket, measuring 36″ / 90cm square. This current project

A Rose By Any Other Name…

I love the array of colours in a well-kept flower garden.  The rich pinks, reds, yellows blues and purples… the stark whites… The problem for me is that if I get too close, my head starts to get very fuzzy

Hold Music…

  Aaaaaand… we’re past the 10 minute mark… do be do be doooby doooby elevator noise.  Not even music.  Some awful, out of tune computer generated spanish guitar junk… We all hate it, right? NOPE!  Not me.  Not today.  Cos

International Happiness Day 2014

2014-03-20 17.59.26

Yesterday was a bad day.  “Like in the song” as Mumble so eloquently says.  A lot of things to deal with.  Exhausting for everyone at Mumble Manor.  We were in much need of happies. And so it dawned this morning,

Here Be Dragons

I’ve always loved dragons.  The concept of them.  How the fact that they’re largely mystical leaves it totally up to your imagination as to what they look like. In late 2012, I began developing a dragon hat, in response to

Giraffes Can’t Dance.

2014-03-07 10.09.17

Mumble is currently of the opinion that when she grows up she might quite like to be a giraffe.  Which I think is a fabulous idea.  Much better than being an astronaut or merchant banker, I suppose. We’ve even been
