Just returned from a few days away. We were in Hobart for an extra nice long-ish weekend. Birthday party, outings, hiking, skimming rocks, feeding fish, making snowmen. We walked up Mt Wellington (not all the way) it was lovely and snowy, and we visited MONA - amazing – if you have a change to go – make sure you do. The most original and interesting art gallery in Australia.

And that teapot pic that snuck in there amongst the holiday shots is my crochet tea cosy that I made this week. Snug and fitted and lovely and blue. I freestyled it – began it like a crochet beanie and then split it at the handle and spout and then joined it back up again. And then added a little cup at the spout. You like?

  • Taggies toy: The pattern’s for a really simple, yet entertaining toy so it’s a perfect project for newbies yet still fun for advanced people and everybody knows a baby or 2 to give them too :D The pictures are only of the cat version, but the pattern includes a bunny and bear as well.
  • Treat bag tutorial
  • Great idea for making reusable pattern/template pieces
  • This tutorial for butterfly shrug for little girls can be easily adapted for adult sizes. It provides easy step by step instructions for making a very stylish version of this wardrobe staple. Great resource for people working on their fall-winter wardrobe now.

This coming week is my mother-in-laws 70th birthday – she is organising a midwinter musicale – champagne and snacks on the harbour – should be quite lovely. While we are visiting we will be doing all sorts of other lovely things too – and hopefully some relaxing will get included as well! The week after that is my 8 year old soon to be 9 year old son’s birthday. We will be seeing Harry Potter the finale on 3D – followed by an Indian restaurant feast. Fun!
