Yosemite and a very overdue Princess Leia hat.

At the moment 3 of our friends from England are visiting…………………….. just when the weather in California decided to remember it was actually winter and start raining. Boo! (But I guess we need the rain to top up our reservoirs otherwise we are going to be short this year!) So we drove to Yosemite this […]

Crate and Barrel inspired decorative cushion.

Our visitors have gone up to Sonoma for a couple of days, so it affords me the luxury of a bit of time to finish off some projects that had been languishing mostly complete. One was the cat tags, they just needed me to find where I had hidden the collars, attach them, and then […]

Knitted Breast.

I love my family. We’re arranging a little family get together in a couple of months time, partially for my 30th birthday (eep!), and partially because we really like each other and don’t see each other enough! My cousin’s wife rang me about it the other day…..Only in my family would the conversation then go […]
