As I was crafting, my hair kept falling in my face, getting very annoying. So I crocheted a simple headband so everything stays out of my way. It looked a little too plain and I didn't have the motivation to crochet a flower to put on it, so I twisted it to make it less… Continue reading Grey Twist
I was able to finish the kitchen fridge this morning! The handle is aluminium foil with a small piece of paperboard stuck behind it, as it is a little flimsy. Down the bottom on the inside, there's a freezer-like space, with one shelf. Then the main part of the fridge has three shelves, all clear… Continue reading Keep the Cool
Blue's been watching all the other horses going outside for pictures when I need an impromptu post and she wanted to go outside as well. So this afternoon, Blue and I spent hunting around the backyard for some good shots. These two look very autumn-y, don't they? I think this is one of my favourites… Continue reading Blue & The Great Outdoors
After a weekend of planning, I am finally building a little kitchen in Sarah's apartment. Here it is as of the end of yesterday: And here are the modules at the end of today: (the left is for cupboards and the black box will be a stove) (and on the left here is the fridge,… Continue reading Kitchen Renovations

The picture doesn't do it justice, it is truly stunning. Gosh, I loved Stars Above! A lot of… Continue reading My Stars, New Books!

The silver bits on the paintbrushes are aluminium foil, which went on easier than I thought it would. The small paint-coloured dowel is a mixing stick, and I used it to put the paint blobs… Continue reading Paints
Only this morning I finished the Kitchener stitch on the second sock. Oh, they look so good as a pair! My Kitchener stitch looks neater on this sock, which makes me very happy. Little bit hot to be wearing them at the moment, but that means that winter can't come soon enough. Now Sarah's really eyeing… Continue reading Finished Socks!
I think this big, brown cabinet that held my books has turned up in some posts in the past. However, it got replaced with two smaller, significantly paler bookshelves. Filling these up with books and miniature props has consumed most of my weekend, but it's been fun deciding where everything's going to go. Some of… Continue reading Fresh Shelving
I finished the amigurumi Iko who featured in the Project Roundup on Wednesday! She's very cute. Iko is a character from a most wonderful book series called The Lunar Chronicles, by Marissa Meyer, and is the android who is best friends with the main character, Cinder. I used a pattern by Claire of Once Upon a… Continue reading Iko the Android
