I have carved feather quills, 

and practiced lettering with said feather quills,

sewn a pair of togs (a swimsuit for those wondering what togs are, and no, I don't think I'll share a photo of them ON),  I'm trying to figure out how to take a photo of them without making them look so huge.  *shudder*

I've laughed at how much my boy has grown up (4yrs old next week), in a moment of tantrum he told me I had lost the privilege of taking him to the playground - that only Dad can do that now,

drawn zentangles and koi for my up-and-coming coloring-in book,

won a cute little embroidered hoop from Katiedidandco.  It is so cute.  Seriously, check out her shop.

I have considered how I'm going to film some quick crochet tutorials, then upload them to you-tube, this could be fun (or terrible),

wondering how to eat healthier, get fitter and (it feels, most importantly) lose weight,

getting terribly discouraged at the numbers on the scale (after trying),

also wondering if that's too much information,

working on holding the phone less and spending more face to face time with my awesome son.  Suddenly the phone isn't so important and I'm getting bored of it quickly.  I think that's a good thing.

Thank you for visiting or following my little blog!  You guys are gems!



  1. "wondering how to eat healthier, get fitter and (it feels, most importantly) lose weight" this is me too, I find it harder to eat healthy in winter though, can't just pop out to the garden to grab some salad and there's no tomatoes! I had actually lost 4kg, but seem to have found 1 of those again recently. I need to cut back on the sugar again I think.

    1. Thanks Rachelle. Oh, it's hard work, isn't it? I want to go to the gym - I just have to fight myself and get out the door. It's only a 1min walk from our front door and it's included in rent. WHY don't I go? OH! I went diligently 3 times a week for a few months, I was seeing results. Fitter, stronger, better sleep. But still, the numbers weren't going down. Instant discouragement. :( I will try again.

  2. Gosh you do make and draw and create beautiful things. Fingers crossed you meet some of those other goals xx


I love comments :)
