I’m at it again! Here are some (VERY belated) photos from my trip to Hluleka this year. It is an absolutely beautiful part of South Africa and I loved the trip there – so calm, so quiet! Such incredible beauty. It made me remember how gorgeous our country is.


FYI, you can find a lot of the items featured in the photos on my craft blog:

Runny Babbit launch!

I’m afraid I might be a dork.

As I might have mentioned before, I’ve turned into somewhat of a knitting enthusiast. I’ve also discovered the hilarious things that can be done with cross stitch.

Quite fortunately for me, it turns out quite a lot of people like my whimsical knitting creations (and I’ve been teaching myself all sort of new skills, like knitting in the round – which I first read about in this hilarious blog post by a male knitter –¬† and cabling)

Thank-you so much to Pistachio Designs and Bianca Romanos for this stunning logo design!!

I’m on Hello Pretty, and have a Facebook page (three more like to get 80!! Like it – it’s a fun page). Most importantly, I’ve launched a whole other blog to vent my crafting woes, share my latest projects, and the ridiculous things I’ve found in the crafting world, so follow that for a few, more niche, laughs.

WONDERFUL present by a friend – hand knitted!! It says ‘I knit so I don’t kill people.’ LOVE this.
