This is the accent felt I like to go with my plain felt when sewing a hippocampus. Yep, that’s how I roll.

Magic crafting

I need to do some more felt critter making. So I need some more felt after decimating my last stash sharing it with the darlings.

I’ll be buying 42 beautiful pieces once again from my favourite etsy felt seller. They are lovely, all natural, with beautiful colours, and very soft.

MMMRRRGGGLLL!!!

Ah, Warcraft. Your strange, compelling universe continues to enthrall me. I have a very soft spot for the Murlocs, but I hate a lot of the WoW merchandise around, which I find to be fairly tacky. But of course, combine any passion with Etsy, and you have a recipe for awesome.

I try to make displays in my library that are seasonal as well as topical and literature-inspired. I’ve been thinking for a while that I need to do an Alice’s adventures in Wonderland themed table. I’m not at all keen on cashing in on the movie, and I refuse to buy movie tie-in merchandise for the collection. However, it has sparked the darling’s imaginations, and anything that gets them reading some of the classics can’t be all bad.

I’ve searched long and hard for an Alice doll that isn’t too dark and spooky (there are a lot of those around) and isn’t an instantly obvious reference to the movie.

Lots of Looms

I’ve got a lovely term coming up where I get to do a lot of things I enjoy. I’m going to be doing some soft sculpture with one group and need some more looms. I don’t really want to spend the money, but I will have them forever then and can claim them back on tax.

The darlings are loving the giant French knitting looms, so I have to buy some more.

I have a lovely wooden round knitter that I enjoy very much. It makes great hats and scarves. The darlings are keen on sewing at the moment, so I thought they might also enjoy a set of giant French knitting looms.
