Craft Diary

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all coping with our school holiday weather :)

As I have mentioned recently, apart from trying to keep the shop
stocked, I am also trying to get stock ready for.....

This event is for finished crafts, and charter buses
also bring visitors from Bundaberg and Maryborough.

Hopefully it will be a great day
for everyone :)

For my next project, I am
using these fabrics......, not as a
I am looking forward to 
the end result :)

Enjoy the rest of your week, and

Recent Finishes......

Hi everyone,

I hope you have had a lovely weekend.  As great as it has been to have rain, it was lovely to have a sunny day today :)

I have a few projects in progress at the moment, trying to get ready for the Childers Craft Bazaar, as well as keeping the shop stocked.

I have just finished making some Tea Cosies  for 2 cup, 4 cup,

....and 6 cup teapots.

They are all tie-quilted, and have a padded base.  I have also added them to my Online Shop .

I hope everyone enjoys the rest of the school holidays  :)

Jenny's Jaunt.....with the kids :)

Hi everyone,

I had hoped to do this jaunt earlier in the week, but time just got

I thought you might like to bring the kids along this time.....

....... and given our recent weather,  plus being school holidays,     very appropriate  :)

I tend to like the 'old fashioned' activities,  like......

.Colouring Books,  Dot To Dot,  Colour By Number, and lots more.

I could go on and on about these links, but there are heaps of characters to choose from....Peter Rabbit, to Harry Potter, or  from Andy Pandy, to Dora the Explorer!!!

 There are just too many characters to list them all, so just click on any of the links above, and have a wander around the page you come to.....just are looking for something for the KIDS to do, so don't get

 I hope someone finds these links useful,  and the rest of the school holidays go well  :)

Happy crafting,  Jenny

Recent Finishes.....Having a

Hi everyone,

yes, I have been having a ball of a time at work lately,

making these.........

Yes, these balls are as fiddly to make as they look,  but fantastic for toddlers, 
as they are so much easier to grab hold of  :)

I have also added these to my online shop .

I hope your week is going well, and you manage to have a lovely weekend, no matter what the weather :)

Weekend Purchases.....

Hi everyone,

I hope your week is of to a good start.

On my way to work on Saturday, I passed - well, n...ot quite

 a garage sale, and took a peek.....

.....and bought these.......

 The round 'thing' seemed quite sturdy, and I was picturing it like this.......

This picture is only a rush one so you could see how I plan to use it......what do you think.... :)  

What is the round 'thing'....?   

It's actually a pottery wheel, so you can imagine how sturdy it is!  I'm looking forward to the end result :)

I hope your weekend was a good
 one too :)

Jenny's Jaunts.....a leisurely pace.....

Hi everyone,

after the pace of our last jaunt I thought we would take a leisurely trip around some gardens.......

......some people put a lot of thought into designing their gardens....... conditions.......which trees to plant......

......and creatures to attract......fairies ..........even bugs and moths are accommodated for in the planning of some gardens...... can be quite puzzling......but whatever the choices.....hopefully it will all turn out fine :)

I hope you now feel refreshed after our jaunt.....

Enjoy the rest of your week, and

Happy Crafting,  Jenny :)

Where is Summer....?

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all coping with the shock of weekend weather.  Although we have had rain, some areas of the southern states are flood bound, and thoughts also go to New Zealand, and its earthquake victims.

On a crafty note, today I finished some casserole covers  for the shop. I have made them in three different colours.  

Given the wet weather  conditions, they are still great for delicious casseroles and stews etc. even if we are getting closer to Summer....bbqs,

I hope the week gets better for everyone soon.

Happy crafting,  Jenny

Recently finished.....

Hi everyone,

I hope you have all recovered from our last jaunt

Fortunately, I have been able to get some more stock made for the is a small sample of what I have been up to.....

In the front of the pic, you can see some of the  crochet topped  hand towels I have been doing , and a  baby silk set, then in the background you can see some Scissors Cases, and Glasses Cases .  

 It seems as though I am always making the hand towels!  They are so handy in the kitchen, and also in the laundry.

Before I sign off, many thanks to everyone who left a comment after our last jaunt. 

 As to my being a nut, I must be of the 'top shelf'' variety.....a macadamia nut, or a cashew nut.......but definitely of the  salty variety, because you (Followers and repeat visitors) keep coming back for  ;)

Oh, sorry, but I couldn't resist that
