about me


Hello! I’m Cornel and I blog about things that inspire me, things I’ve made and Craft Share, the craft group I started in 2009.

You'll find lots of crochet on my blog, as well as my crochet and sewing projects for Ideas Magazine, since September 2011.

he's still here!

My mom spotted him yesterday after lunch. Couldn’t believe it! He’s still here. I’d said a little silent prayer 6 weeks ago when my garden engineer, Adam, decided it was time for the carrot plants to go to the compost heap, not knowing if our little chameleon went there too! Our carrots (see here, here, here and here) had become inedible after being left in the soil for too long, although their flowers gave us enormous pleasure. I phoned him the next day (Adam, not the little reptile) to ask if he’d seen any strange looking green “animal”. I didn’t know what the Ndebele(*) word for chameleon was. He assured me he saw nothing and didn’t by accident kill anything either. I’m totally relieved now that he’s still at home in our garden (our chameleon, not Adam).

You’re doing such a good job at disguising yourself Inwabu, its good (not) to see you!
