It’s been a year since I start this blog. I honest didn’t mean to stop posting but my world collapsed. There was no death or live changing moment that trigger it. I just broke.
So after a few months I’m back and I’m making changes.
Thank you for wait.
Last week I was sick and since then I’ve felt disconnected from my work.
I’m thinking that I’ve been focusing so much on what everyone else would like instead of making inspiring pieces I like to share.
It’s always an issue when you start making for a business and stop doing it just for fun.
How does one enjoy a happy, healthy balance in life?
Friends and I decided we’d go for a scenic drive to a little town called Wentworth for lunch. We had heard some great reviews about a cafe called Artback and we were not disappointed.
This beautiful cafe and gallery is something special. Situated in a rustic building filled with art and a comfy atmosphere I instantly fell in love!
We decided to sit upstairs and we enjoyed and array of great coffee, chai and amazing main courses. The portions sizes were huge and the staff super friendly as I can’t eat gluten and a friend of mine can’t eat dairy. The had options for both of us!
It was such a great Sunday and I drove out there and back.

I love this ripple jacket pattern. I’ve made so many that I know most of it without reading it while crocheting. I’ve made one in 8ply with a larger hook for a 1 year old seeing the current pattern I’m using only makes a 3 month old size.
Its a great pattern to show off a vergated yarn with a long repeat and I find its fairly quick to make so a great idea for baby showers. Only takes me a day or two.
Here’s a free version ripple jacket.
Its summer in Australia and for some the thought of icy mornings is far away, but for me I’m planning my winter knits and crochet blankets now.
I’ve ordered squishy thick yarn and selected patterns on Raverly. Bought new needles as I’ve been replacing my current needles with the interchangeable Knitpro set and I’m trying to finish most other projects that I have lying around the house (probably shouldn’t have projects unfinished so often).
One pattern I’ve picked for my self if Kate Davies “Owls“. I’m making it in pink as love wearing colour in winter. It’s dull enough without me adding to it.
I also have some big balls of jet so I’m thinking a sweater dress for each of my younger daughters.
Have you started thinking about the cooler months?
