sh*t on the liver

Or pillow crease face. This is how I woke up this morning, feeling cranky and frowny. So, this post, not a lot of words just pictures. Everything’s great, my life is awesome, but I still wake up sometimes with sh*t on the liver. *Sigh*. Saying that The Son did have me crying tears of laughter on the freeway this morning.

WIP – Valentine Sequin Scarf. Love the yarn.


FO’s. T-Bot using one of Hilary’s awesome patterns for a friends little fella.

Felty goodness. After seeing Sarah’s awesome garland it reminded me that I had this book, thanks Miss Kate, and that I should have a play.


and this one too big to be a brooch I think but a patch on a denim jacket? Or handbag?

and a birdie bookmark

More house? Ok. Here’s parts of our bedroom. These lanters are in my corner of the bedroom. I love love love them.


The wall at the end of the bed, no the whole room is not this colour, just one wall. Ironically the colour is called Lickedy Lick. Not quite colour accurate here, it’s more pink than red.

Ok, I think looking at this little monkey could help cure anyone’s sh*t on the liver. Well that’s if he’s not peeing somewhere you’d prefer he didn’t, or chasing the cat, or running off with the knickers you’ve just taken off at the end of the day, or digging a hole to China in the backyard….you get the idea.

Happy crafting peeps.

body washer monster?

EDIT: Thanks for the Egbert love in the last post. I’ll pull finger and get writing up a pattern.

Well howdy ya’ll! How are you? Me, just dandy! Though wishing this feral summer heat would let up a little. What else? Thinking about Easter crafting and the week I’ll have off, the sewing I’d like to do and movies I’d like to watch. Hopefully The Son will be on leave with me and we can hang out together.

The Ted and Spud are doing well. Spud secretly loves Ted, but as Mummy Son says he just has trouble expressing his emotions sometimes. Translation, he bites and attacks and stirs. Though having lived with this cat for over 6 years I can see he enjoys Ted. Enjoys tearing around the house and egging the pup on, enjoys the play and mostly enjoys the wrestle. Maybe not so much the saliva, sharp teeth and claws sometimes, but generally enjoys.


For those puppy lovers here’s Turdalot at about 17 weeks. Man they grow up quick! I know, cliched, but they do! He’s very sweet, if a little naughty. What you see here is morning time whilst we’re getting ready for work. Teddy Rooster (Mummy Son’s name for him) tethered to the dining room table with a treat or two and a little puppy matt, sewn very quickly and roughly by me, fabric choice, The Son.

I’ve been spending a little of time over at Ravelry. Man it ROCKS. Anyhow, I found this awesome wash cloth pattern for a lion….Not having yellow/orange cotton I decided to use what was in the stash and have ended up with a wash cloth monster. Still fun. Of course it’s for us to use, never too old for a monster wash cloth.


For those of you with access to Ravelry, here’s the link to the lion pattern and my initial inspiration. I knitted the 2 strand version.

Whilst I was in the bathroom thought I’d show you guys some of the fun stuff.

Decals on the mirror, purchased from Vinyl Wall Art. As you can see I need a remote for the camera.




Some framed prints, two from Zakkaya in Melbourne. Purchased when shopping with Al and Di a few years ago. The other from a Japanese spostcard book. Very cheap frames from Ikea. Quick, simple and fun.

Oh and last Saturday night we went and saw Rufus Wainwright who was awesome. Just gorgeous, entertaining and a stunning voice.

Until next time, happy crafting!

Egbert and The Knots


Meet Egbert and The Knots rocking out on my living room table. Planning for Easter, I know, silly, but true.

I could wax lyrical about Egbert but it’s Friday and my brain’s not functioning well enough to conjure up some witty post for you all! Doesn’t mean I love you any less, just brain tired.

A little detail. He’s knit from left over sock yarn, Lorna’s Laces, Bittersweet I think. Pattern I cobbled together. If any of you are interested leave a comment and I’ll write it up.


Current obsession, punch needle embroidery! Go figure.
