Snap shots

1.  How does Frank always seem to find the most comfortable spot in the house to have a snooze? 
It must be his special catty senses, he can sniff out a pile of 
blankets from the other end of the house. :) 

2 + 3 + 4.  Crochet making this week, I've been making things for the last EmuPlains Market for this season, so some striped hats, hearty washers and flower embellishment packs, I have a few more hats to go and then its onto slippers if I have time. :)  As soon as this market is over I am starting a new blanket!

5. . Studio progress shot, well actually it is all finished, and I am moving things in this week, but I am going do a proper tadah  post and a little photo tour of it very soon, ( it is looking so good!)  so here is how it looked with the floors finished and the painting done.  
I ended up just going with a white called "Snow Egg' for the walls and ceiling, as I think it will be easier to let the yarn colours shine this way.  The rest  of our house is VERY colourful so I have actually found it quite good to give my eyes a colour rest, and really noticed all the colours in our kitchen/family room when I go back inside, it is a bit like sensory over load! 

6. Just a cute shot of some colourful things. 
Love my flower canisters, they are finding a new home in my wool studio of course! 

Have you got a big week ahead?  
I hope you find time to do some fun things too, it's important to do things that make you happy don't you think? 


  1. I like all these pics in particular I love the studio!! Have a good creative work! Vale

  2. Haha. Your cat really looks like mine. They both Always find the nicest places (mostly my places and things: my bed, my crocheted blankets and other project, but also on my desk on my papers from school while I'm studying). I Always like to see your posts because your pictures are Always so beautiful. I wish you a very nice crafty day.

    Lovely greetings,

  4. Cats are like that. lol (We have a ginger and white cat, as well as a grey one.) The studio looks wonderful,can't wait to see the re-veal! You're at the fun part now, enjoy! A rainy week forecasted here, so some much needed indoor work to do (after doing a lot of outdoor chores during the warm weather). ; P I'm three rows in on my heart blanket (8 blocks long, about 7 inches square,16 colors, blues and greens).May sneak a block in between those chores. ;D
