all kitted out

With soup bubbling on the stove, I've been curled up under a blanket trying to be crafty. I'm not yet sure whether this crocheting gig is going to catch on in this house, but I'm giving it a red hot go! I'll let you know if I ever create something worth talking about...

p.s. I've just updated the pippijoe craft section with kits, patterns and a couple of oddment packs. I hope you like what you see!

What I did over the holidays...

First of all there was the Finders Keepers in Brisbane, I wish I could show you some of my own pics, but I was just too busy to take one! Anyway, above are two I ‘borrowed’ from their website.

Needless to say it was a fantastic event, lovely people, bands, food and masses of beautiful things to see! I've just heard today the exciting news that FK will be in Melbourne this October!

Also a lovely relaxing weekend full of food, wine, creativity and fabulous company at Sewjourn. I have to say I relaxed and ate more than I created, but still came home with a few things to show and tell:

My first book binding project! (Thanks Cathy)

Table Runner

Button Tree

Paper flowers

They are now arranged or framed and up on my wall, as I’ve just tarted up the house for some visitors. But now they have gone, it can all fall into disarray as per usual.
