A Pass it Forward and crafting.

I was lucky enough to be chosen by fit a "play it forward" in January. This is where you enter on a blog to have something made for you and then you do the same on your blog. I received my gorgeous package last week from Tracy in England. It is the most gorgeous bag - the quality of her work is very high. Thank you so much Tracy! She also sent some Mudpuddle books by my favourite author Michael Morpurgo , which McDonalds in the UK are giving away with happy meals! Maybe NZ McDonalds might do this one day! And made Middle child a gorgeous football bag for his boots! Middle child writes to her oldest son ! It is very cool.

I do love my apple coasters which i made in under an hour- from a kitset from The Little Craft Shop in Pt Chevalier. I did a needlework class through them learning different stitches on this lively linen tea towel too - lots more work to do!

Love the 2 books from The Book Depository- but boy are their books suddenly taking a much longer time to get to NZ all of a sudden!

And the middle child's jersey needs more wool - even if I did undo huge bits of it and put in stripes!! Sigh!! Learnt my lesson about hoarding wool and not using it for a long time! Always buy at least 8 balls of wool now!!

Off to the framers to get my place names work finally framed! Husband us making shelves for linen room!


  1. I'm so glad you liked your bag and that the football bag went down well too! I love the idea of putting stripes in your jumper (how many of us have done tthat when we have a project on the go and then find years later that we don't have enough wool - guilty as charged!) The house is looking great it must be lovely to be able to think about putting pictures up, have a great weekend xx
