I nearly didn't make it to the 
Royal Adelaide Show this year
even though my work was entered 
and on display!

Moving house?
Cleaning out?
Going overseas?


Got a stash to sort?

Here's a cute stashbuster!

Festive Shamrocks to the Rescue

A dark green shamrock crocheted from sparkly metallic yarn on a white background.
"We've been invited to an Irish-themed birthday party
and have nothing to wear!"

"Wear something green."

"I don't have anything green in my wardrobe."

"Okay. Maybe I have something green in the yarn stash ..."

Bizzy Beez

Three crocheted bees' faces poking out from between the sprigs of a lavender bush. A triangular arrangement, the top bee has a yellow face with white wings, the bottom left is sideways with a yellow face,two black stripes and silver wings, facing the top bee. Bottom right is a black-faced bee with white mouth and eyes and silver wings. Each bee is smiling.

Three busy bees in my lavender!

The fourth one is not in the picture because the fourth one is ME!


I have been an extremely busy bee hence the dearth of blog posts lately.

You should see the list of everything that has been going on for me. Crazy hectic.
No wonder I have been too tired to pick up a crochet hook much BUT I did manage a third bee and have embarked on a new project.

These things I will share today including the pattern for these bees plus something to
give you a laugh.

Beanies to Berets Exhibition 2019 + Textile Expo: Call for Artists

Have you heard about the City of Onkaparinga's "Beanies to Berets" exhibition?
(If not, you had better check out some earlier blog posts on the subject - listed and linked at the end of this one.)

This exhibition has been run annually since 2017 thanks to the amazing and dedicated work of Kaye Oliver and Helen Herde who have helped to organise the exhibition, dozens of artists and hundreds of beanies!

Do you want to join in the fun this year? 

Here's the latest information on this year's event which will incorporate a one-day
"Textile Expo" which I imagine would be similar to last year's "Creative Textiles Weekend" where textile artists and producers can show and sell their products directly to the public.
