I've started up a new Instagram account.

It's cold again. Which means the hooks have come out.
First up this year is a shrug. Planned on making it for me. Ended up too small so I gifted it to my niece. Doesn't matter if I make a swatch test. I'm just a tight crocheter.

I had so much fun with Little O today. We decided to make a fairy garden.
|Our Fairy Garden|
Something on the to do list for a while so it was great to finally make one.

We found a giant tea cup at the local garden shop. Not girly, big bonus. Little O picked most of the plants and found the water frog. There wasn't anything to buy for a fairy garden - probably a plus. We had a few succulents that needed to be replanted so didn't go overboard. We also had a few items that he'd collected on holiday recently he wanted to use.

Now all it needs is some handmade touches. Luckily I'm a champagne drinker so my cork tops came in handy.

Great project for kids to get involved in and if you're short of time.

I bought these succulents a few months back with grand ideas for a succulent garden. Well they just sat in their pots, not dying. Then a few weeks ago we went camping and discovered our kettles lid was unusable, like another in our shed, so brain wave!! Re-purposed into flower pots. It was a nice relaxing afternoon and I hope to do more of it.

This is a mini garden my green thumb sister made me. Still going strong 😀.

I've decided that this is the year to get back into garment making. I stumbled across this book in the local library:
The beginners guide to dress making. Well I'm not a beginner but I needed something to get me back into it.
So I declared 2016 is the year of the garment. My goal is to make 12 items for myself!!
January kicked off well with the t-shirt from the book:
