Im finally on Etsy. Have been procrastinating for awhile now and today was the day.Ive made a batch of embroidered brooches and this tote bag. Over the next few days will be loading all the brooches and hopefully people will like them.

I will have to ask my resident expert on how to load the link to my Etsy stuff. I can manage a blog but when it comes to the really technical stuff, Im In the meantime my work can be seen at

The tote is a one off that has a crazy quilted base with heaps of laces over then upcycled crochet pansies in a spiral pattern with big pearl like beads added to their centres.

Crazy Bag Using Knitting/crochet samples

My mother-in-law is a fabulous machine knitter and I thought I would make her a fun bag to use at her knitting conferences etc.
I had collected a variety of peggy squares and off cuts from her knitting and some upcycled crochet squares and put them together in the crazy patchwork method, then scattered afghans over and for the quirky touch added a pair of knitted rabbit bootees that I found at an op-shop.
Everyone should have a piece of madness in their accesories wardrobe. :)

Ribbon Rug

My Mother gave me a baglot of ribbons ages ago that she had won with her donkeys and ponys at the local A.P & I shows . Finally I have made them into a blanket. She can use it as a picnic or car blanket for when she goes to the shows.

Pastel Crazy Quilt

The pastel crazy quilt blocks are finished and joined together. I cant decide what colour borders as yet. Possibly a strong yellow.With a narrow pale blue inside that. Not sure.
As you can see in the photos Ive put just about everything onto this quilt.
Was a most enjoyable project satisfying my urge for lots of texture.
