This is going to be a post - not just about a wonderful group of crafty ladies right here in Hamburg or about this project we were lucky enough to be apart of - but of gratitude. It is on days like this - when the universe aligns - that I am reminded of how… Continue reading Charity : Heart Pillow Project 2015
I am so often stuck by the beauty around me here in Hamburg and it usually happens on a sunny afternoon, as I leisurely ride my bike the very short distance home. Having my studio so close to home, often means I take the 'long way' on days like today - the ride home is too… Continue reading Snapshot : My ride home
Some days in the studio just work. Flow, you come home exhausted but feel like you've really achieved something. Finished something; found greater understanding of something; worked something out. Found a short cut - or a long cut. But you managed to arrive at that place you set out to find. Do you know what I mean? Feels… Continue reading Studio Life : Sock Haul & New Monkies
Isn't Hamburg heavenly in the Spring time! I couldn't let these photos sit on my computer one more day, without sharing the beauty that is just meters from my front door right now. This was Wednesday last week - and it was the first day this entire year I have been able to walk and… Continue reading Snapshot : Spring is here!

It's amazing how these little… Continue reading Taking Stock : February 2015
With Christmas only a few days away now and the end of the year closing in…I thought it only fitting to list my last Taking Stock for 2014. After taking part in a Blog with Pip course, Taking Stock has become a little tradition here in the blogosphere....and like many of my fellow blogging buddies - I am hoping… Continue reading Taking Stock : December 2014
This little cutie has been in my head for a little while now (I have SO MUCH gorgeous fabric).....but there's no better reason to make you actually sit down and do it - than the arrival of a new little person in the family. My nephew came into the world recently and in no time, I… Continue reading Taggy Giraffes : What better reason?
Earlier this year, I was lucky enough to participate in the delightful online course Blog with Pip! Pip Linclon is an Australian dynamo, full of so many creative talents and has helped inspire and motivate me to write more here, keeping my lovely followers up to date with what's going on in the studio - as… Continue reading Taking Stock : June 2014
