Neighbourly … 

Anyone been on the neighbourly app? My husband offered my crochet services to a lovely lady, I was pleased to help! 

Here’s the original blanket, it just needed some finishing touches.

I decided to use up the yarn she had given me and did 7 rows of double crochet around the edge after I had done a single crochet row around the blanket.

I finished it with crab stitch which I haven’t used before but I loved the rolled edge and I’m sure I will use it again.  A lovely project completed and Ann is thrilled with it.

Have a lovely evening! 



Its’ been six months…

So it’s been pretty much 6 months to the day since i’ve blogged! The year has delivered new challenges but I can now say we are through to the other side of it and are now enjoying life more!

I’m taking a bit of a different angle this year, with the tag line – creating beautiful things – whether it be painted furniture or handcrafted pieces.  Most are one off creations with the exception of snowcapped painted mountains and crochet fruit which I can make to order. You can visit my website to make an order and I am happy to ship throughout New Zealand and to Australia.

These handcrafted pieces look very sweet in your precious one’s bedroom on display, here are a few photos from recent customers.

We farewelled our oldest daughter to the UK 6 weeks ago, the upside of this is I now have a sewing room, which I have to say is nearly too small!! Here is my first blouse and bloomers! Size 12 months. These are available now $50 for the set. Go to website for details on that and the ear flap hat and a few other one off pieces.


Here’s my latest painted piece, I used Moth by Heirloom Chalk Furniture Finish, I love it and it is waiting for it’s new owner!! Email me if you are keen, only in South Island NZ thou 🙂moth6.JPG

Have a great day and will post again soon with more creations!
