About Me

This is me! 


 If you are interested, here is a little bit more about me.

I am Jules,  I live on the quiet side of the Mornington Peninsula outside 
Melbourne with my husband and our 3 teenage boys, and several random animals.

I have a love for crafty things, crochet, knitting and yarny makes in particular, 
so you will be seeing a lot of my crafty adventures on this blog! 
I also like to post about other aspects of the good life, cooking and food, growing our veggies,
 looking after the chooks and our family life on occasions.
 I like to share patterns, ideas, projects and generally spread 
the granny love that is the very hip craft of crochet!

I have a passion for colour, and am inspired to make things by the colourful
world around me, my boys have gotten used to living in a colourful home,
 and are very tolerant of my makes and obsessions. Only a tiny bit of eye rolling.

 Recently I have opened an online yarn shop, Little Woollie Makes Yarn Store, 
so get to indulge my love of craft, colour and beautiful yarns all at once! 
Life is good! :)

I hope you enjoy this little peek into my life, and my crafty journeys into the wonderful world of crochet and colour.

Thank you for visiting my blog, I hope you have a sunshiny day wherever you are in the world!

  1. Thank you for interesting and lovely presentation of your person, have a good day, bye,ania

    1. Hi Katie, thanks for the tip, I'll make sure I do so from now on, somehow I don't think I am a natural saleswoman!! :) J xx

  3. Nice to find another Australian 'yarny' blog for all sorts of 'yarns' the story kind as well as the crafty kind :-)
    I love your colour palettes displayed in your photographs.

  4. Hi from France, love everything you do !

  5. Hello are you selling any of your patterns at all. They are just gorgeous

  6. Thanks so much for your blog and for inspiring me with your mixed-stitch stripey blanket! Here's my blog post referencing your site projecteasier/mixed-stitch-stripey-blanket/. Your work is great! Thanks a lot!

  7. Jules, I am so excited to run across your blogsite (fyi - I was doing a search for crochet stitches and came across it). I live in the USA and the country I would most like to visit is Australia. So, I was very happy to run across your site, an Australian and a crochet/yarn lover too.How cool is that? I am what is termed a "Crochetaholic." - live and breathe crochet. The calendar I have has January 26 as "Australia Day," so I wrote "Woohoo!" on it. Was hoping that maybe we could connect by email and chat a bit. Also, I was wondering if you have any ideas how we (Americans) can celebrate Australia Day? Thank you for your response. I will send an email to you with my email address.
    God bless!
