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.

craft share friday 4 may


Gesels hier op facebook verder oor die gehekel ...

Geniet jou naweek! C x


thank you!

BAIE dankie vir elkeen wat my geluk gewens het met my verjaarsdag vandag! En dankie dat ek kreatief wees en mooi goed met soveel mense reg oor die wêreld kan deel! C x

(and THANK YOU Alicia Paulson for allowing me to use this beautiful photograph today!)


aaah ... albizia

Nogsteeds my favourite restaurant. Behalwe dat ons Lientjie se ongelooflike kos eet, neem ek (gewoonlik) fotos - kan jy sien hoekom?

Ek het PicMonkey gebruik om my fotos te edit. Of moes ek hulle eerder gelos het soos hulle is ...


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


... something from fient 

Cecily (or 'Fient' to family) is the owner and curator at Fient Lifestyle Gallery. Her shop is at Duncan Yard, Hatfield Pretoria and filled with objet, clothing, accessories and her own 'inventions'. I, on the other hand, am now the owner of a whimsical wire birdcage and 4 occupants. C x

it is time

Anisa het dit begin. Maryna (haar kombers in die foto) en Annelize s'n was net die laaste strooi. Ek MOET ook 'n Babette kombers hekel. So, die patroon is uitge"print" en ek het 'n sak vol oorskiet wol wat regstaan. Kan nie wag om te begin nie ... een of ander tyd hierdie naweek. Geniet joune! 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


original cath kidston from london

A beautiful gift from an old school friend visiting from London.

In a gorgeous paper bag.

Celebrating a 28 year old friendship (fltr: Claudine from London, myself and Sonja).


long weekend away

My family and I spent the last 4 days in the picturesque town of Dullstroom, in the beautifully decorated holiday home of a very special and generous friend. She managed to find a lovely spot where she created a space for escape and rest. That's exactly what I needed. C x
