Today, like most weeks, I spent some time naming some of the latest additions to the Gus and Ollie clan. Sometimes a name jumps right off the page and fits perfectly, other times I search and search, trying to find the perfect name to fit those cute little faces. The questions I am asked… Continue reading What’s Up Wednesday : Naming process
Well if you can believe it, it's already Meet Up Monday once again and today I want to introduce you to sock monkey Georgie. Isn't she just the cutest?

These were two extremely different, but equally sweet monkey orders I received, that… Continue reading Studio Life : Meet Minky & Jed
Hi there 🙂 I thought it was about time for another One + Four = Life post. I have been making and photographing and making and photographing these last few weeks, with the view outside my window being as enticing as my studio. I love Autumn. I always have. I have such fond memories of afternoons… Continue reading One + Four = Life : Desktop, Fire, Streetscape & Hooking
I think it's wonderful when something serendipitous happens, don't you? The chance decision to go and look for a coffee, down a street we don't usually go, found us falling into the most delightful cafe, that just happens to be directly connected to a wool and yarn shop!
