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.

what is better

CROCHET?

(which is pretty awesome)

Or crochet with FRIENDS?

Aha!

I thought so.

For more awesome pics of how friends

crochet together,

have a look at our album on Facebook.

If you didn't know,

I started crocheting together with ONE friend

in September 2009, one Friday morning.

More people joined (they became friends very quickly)

and I decided to call it

CRAFT SHARE.

Craft Share is just a gathering of friends

who love crafting,

once or twice a month, at my house.

Why don't you start something similar?

You only need one "friend"

to get started.

craft share on friday 10 may

ShapeCollage (in die App Store)

is 'n oulike manier om fotos te organiseer.

Ek het 'n hartvorm gekies.

Ek kyk met effense heimwee na my lang hare op die foto regs.

Dis heelwat korter op die oomblik...

craft share on friday 26 april

Ek was lanklaas op my verjaarsdag so bederf met

kreatiewe vriende,

hulle liefde,

spesiaal-uitgesoekte geskenke,

die heerlikste eetgoed,

die mooiste hekelwerk

en sjampanje om als te vier.

Nog fotos op Facebook.

unofficial craft share on friday 12 april

A while ago I had the pleasure to meet

Anita Rabie and Lounette Fourie -

the 2 VERY talented decor editors at Sarie Magazine.

Once a year, this talented duo puts together

Sarie Kreatief

(find 12 knitting patterns here)

It's a testament to their love-affair

with handcrafted goodness.

So, without hesitation,

I said "YES!" when they asked

to do a photo shoot at one of my Craft Shares.

Unfortunately I was only able to invite

a limited number of friends,

but the effect was the same:

a wonderful morning filled with laughter and crafting,

while Phyllis Green took some pics.

The pics above, though,

where taken by me -

with my iPhone.

And then edited on www.picmonkey.com.

Our album is also on Facebook.

The next Craft Share will be on my 44th birthday!

Friday 26 April, 'round my diningroom table.

craft share friday 1 march

Of daar nou 16 of 6 vriendinne hekel by my huis met

Craft Share,

dit bly 'n 'treat'!

Ons deel soveel meer as net hekel...

Soos Christelle se oulike krale -

'n gemeenskapsprojek...

Amelia se hopie blokkies vol belofte

Almarie se tjalie in Salomo se knoop (klink so mooi in Afrikaans...)

En Maryna se GROOT versoeking. ELKE. LIEWE. CRAFT. SHARE.

Wonderlik!

PS Ons fotos is op Facebook soos altyd.

PS The photo above is of a special friend, Maryna.

Special because she has a beautiful and kind heart.

O yes, and she sells yarn...

craft share on friday 25 january

Dis ALTYD lekker om te sien

waarmee elkeen besig is...

Hoeveel ure daar gehekel word...

Wat mens nie als vir jou kinders sal doen nie...

Of vir jouself?

So lekker om te sien

dat ek nie die enigste een

is wat hou van die Eiffeltoring nie.

... dat reis in kuns verander kan word

... dat sommige van ons wel al hulle eendjies in 'n ry het

... dat babas gehekelde borsspelde dra.

Wat 'n 'treat' om vir Marlene te ontmoet

met haar ongelooflike handespinde wol

So lekker om net te kuier, te brei, of hekel, gesels...

Ons album is op Facebook.
