…Creating on the Hill…

Life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them

….creating and organising together = comfort…



yesterday was a great day of planning and organizing….two parts to the day…

part one was with two friends..both designers..both creative…very talented..they make a good team,they compliment each other well and i was lucky i had both in the same place at the same time.

We had our chosen beverage…i was able to resist the sweet goodies..my knees need some relief after last weekends dancing (excess weight on knees = pain)  so i am  removing the extra weight by cutting out the extras. Our planning notebooks were filled, dates and ‘to do; lists agreed on

and much to my delight I got a gift too..

this beautiful pincushion is so so cute and I was thrilled, it came in a gorgeous box ( yes you know me well…i will be re-loving it soon!)

24th June 4

we agreed that the tiny container could also be used as a shot glass( if times got stressful while sewing!!)

these pincushions are part of a wonderful group of women the Tohoku Grandmas that prove that when disaster strikes….stitching can give comfort and strength. The principals that Quilts for Comfort N.E. are building their foundation on.

Part two of the day was spent at home where we are moving forward with our home organizing project, we have decided to clear the decks and put order in our home…it will help us we think move forward, with clarity but also store the precious treasures in a better way

we have an assortment of record players stored…anyone remembering their first single/45 they bought?…mine was Donny Osmond ‘And they called it puppy love’…closely followed by David Cassidy and ‘Cherish’..memories

The Crafts House is a small studio on top of a "hill"..a place to create..a place to breathe..a time just for you.. I'm the luckiest person to spend my days creating the art that i love..meeting like minded creative friends..sharing time in the palette of life..

  1. David Cassidy was my heart throb!!!!! I used to watch the Partridge Family on TV. That was some 40 years ago. OMG you have triggered so many memories. Thanks for that.


  2. Love that creative space we can dream xx


  3. Well done for resisting the cakes Sandra Dee you are very good!!!
    I was trying to think of my first single can’t remember but can remember my first LP I bought it was Prince Charming by Adam and the Ants!!!
    Hope David can fix those machines they are lush!!! Xxx


  4. Hi Sandra – Love the showcase of cakes!!!! Well done for resisting temptation. My first record was Summer Nights from Grease but I grew up with 80’s stuff! I loved my stacking stereo and my dad made me wall brackets for the speakers! The posters were Michael Jackson & Duran Duran! Happy days! I’ve just sorted out my craft space and now it’s so neat and tidy I don’t want to craft in it! K x
