Earthquakes, Wooly blankets, zippers and teacosies




As I write this my thoughts are far away with my friends in Christchurch as they cope after Tuesdays 6.3 earthquake. I feel helpless being so far away and unable to do anything very constructive. As is the awesome- ness of all people crafty I will join with other crafters donating product to help raise funds for Christchurch, So watch this space for more info on that to come soon.
Also there is a neat little project called Softies for Christchurch. People are invited to make a softie ( knitted, sewn, crochet etc) and to donate it for distribution to kids in CHCH. I will be making a few softies and have set myself a challenge to invent some Boy themed softies. ( photos to come soon)
Speaking of photos, sorry I have not been updating facebook and blog as much as I want too, but I have been challenged by having my computer go on strike, so currently I'm working on a "borrowed" laptop from our "other" work.
Recently I have been working on some NEW products ( very exciting!) which I will debut at Craft 2.0 in Wellington at Easter. So watch out for some vintage themed goodies. A few little pics of Morepork doorstops which have been very popular lately. I promise some new zipflower photos soon.
