About Me

  Welcome to my blog!



Hello kind readers, my name is Wendy and I am a mother of two, designer and crafter, health care worker, lover of all things vintage, nature and animals. I truly believe you should spend your time doing what you love! 

I have an insatiable need to create with a very active imagination!  I grew up with a  clever grandmother who was both a knitter and sewer of the most intricate and scary patterns that always turned out beautifully.  I could never work out how she could knit, talk and watch television at the same time!  My mother was a dressmaker in the 60's and 70's.  Think flares, hotpants and tie-dyeing.  Mmmm...nice!  

My style is quirky, a combination of granny chic, vintage and bright, modern.   If you love this mix and enjoy making too, then this blog is for you!   I am inspired by color, color everywhere!  In nature, books or magazines, signs, anywhere.  It stimulates me and gets me out of a slump when coffee does not work!  A serious right side of the brain affliction I think!  I love the unique, the different and stepping out of my comfort zone.  My children are a constant source of inspiration as they have both grown up to follow their dreams creatively with music and within their professional lives.

I get enormous joy out of designing and making quilts and craft projects, some of which I have had published in Australian magazines such as Homespun, Handmade, Country threads and Patchwork and Stitching.
