THE CRAFT SESSIONS POSTSCRIPT

Phew! Home. Unpacked. Slept. And slept some more. And still basking in the glow of the weekend that was The Craft Sessions 2016. Yet another brilliant weekend with a beautiful community of crafting cleverlies. Felicia has developed and refined a formula that continues to inspire and uplift. I was honoured to teach again with a […]

FRACTURES ARE CONTAGIOUS

Did you know that fractures are contagious? Our family are proposing a new scientific theorem. The night before school started for the year, yes, the VERY NIGHT BEFORE, my son was hit with a cricket ball on his right hand. Not intentionally, just a deflected ball from an adjacent cricket net. Unbelieveable. This injury is […]

A KNITTER’S WORST NIGHTMARE

It’s always a hectic end of year scenario for me and this year proved no different. Dreams of a handmade Christmas fall by the wayside with work deadlines steamrolling all things! On Boxing Day my family and I flew to Sydney to spend 9 days beachside in Manly. Ahhhhhhhhh. Sun, sand and surf. And then […]

THE CRAFT SESSIONS 2014

Above: Kestrel Room, my Knitting – Neckpiece class board. The Craft Sessions 2014 really was bigger and better than last year, and I thought that would be mighty hard to beat. More people, more classes, more teachers. Dare I say, it was “more” all round and on every level? Above: my Knitting – Neckpiece class […]

ECO EDGE

Rather pleased to be able to announce the unveiling of my new ‘work’ website. It has been great fun re-visiting projects with the photographer and hearing from the Clients how much they love the finished designs. I even managed a Launch Blog Post which is exciting in itself. [Especially given how challenging it is for […]

JFK INTL

Did I happen to mention my impending travel plans? Did I? For 3 plus months? Yes? Hard for me to believe < as she eyes seemingly insurmountable Alps-Of-Epic-Nature volume of work to complete > but this time in three weeks, I will be sitting in a New York bound aeroplane! Squee! For a wee moment, […]
