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.

abigail brown

"'My grandma had a beautiful patchwork bag she kept all her fabric scraps in, ‘ the raggy bag’, and when I was old enough to display my feelings of desire for this magical object full of wondrous bits of colour, pattern and texture, she made me my very own, much littler version." - Abigail Brown's website 


elsbeth eksteen

Wol word soos verf op haar kwas, ag ek bedoel hekelpen. Elsbeth "verf" eintlik as sy hekel. Sonder grappies, ek is MAL oor haar kuns! En oor haar. Sy doen werk op kommissie en jy sal haar in die hande kry by 083 218 5610. Of op facebook. C x


happiness is homemade

I truly believe that the best gifts are homemade. This beautiful plate was a gift from Karin at our last Craft Share. Karin used lace to create the flower border. I LOVE everything about it, K! Thank you again. C x


fibre artist in pretoria

I can only describe Marianne as a fibre artist. She spins and dyes merino, mohair and cotton yarns herself, and has a wealth of knowledge on everything relating the subject.

Handspun yarns sell for R1,20 per gram, variegated (more than one colour) yarn for R1 per gram and handspun 100% Merino for 80c per gram.

Marianne can be contacted on (072)425 7855.
