Recently, we had our second crafternoon at Amy's lovely South Melbourne home. It was a grey miserable day, so we all snuggled up and happily crocheted, gossiped and giggled the afternoon away.

Now that we all have the chain and treble stitch down to a T, we have started experimenting with different stitches, changing colours, and creating shapes other than the traditional granny square.

Amy's cat joined us for the afternoon. Meet Pixie, the British Blue. She has a gorgeous thick coat which is the colour of a thundery sky, and these massive intense gold eyes, that just stare at you as if to say 'and what?' She is the coolest cat I have ever met.

A special thank you to Amy for having us, and I am looking forward to our next Happy Hookers convention.

Green with envy

I have just entered a competition to win a $1000 prize with Life Instyle. They have created a Pinterest contest and it's all about taking inspiration from their tagline Green With Envy. Aim of the game is to create a pinboard that embraces the colour green and reflects your sense of style. And it just so happens, minty green is one of my favourite colours!

Most exciting part is one of the judges is Lucy Feagins from my fav blog The Design Files.

Check out my Life Instyle Green with Envy board and my other pins on Pinterest.

Get on board and get pinning and maybe it could be you that takes the prize. See here for more info.

Our new home

Last weekend we moved into our new home in St Kilda East. It is just beautiful with gorgeous dark wooden floors, fresh white walls and brand new ikea kitchen and bathroom. I just love it! The best part though is finding new homes for all my favourite things I have collected over the years.
