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.

ideas for october

Delivered the next "batch" of goodies for the October issue of Ideas magazine today. I LOVE doing work for them and can't wait to see these cushions on their pages. With the August issue that's on sale at the moment, they inspire me to yarn bomb a chair (page 6), wear turquoise and red (page 21), knit fingerless gloves (page 66) and buy the September issue (page 131) with the deck chair cover and round cushion I made for them a month ago.

5221 people "like" them on Facebook. Follow this link to see why!



Delivered a crocheted deck chair cover and round cushion today. It will be featured in the Spring issue of Ideas magazine, with the patterns that I designed.

It was a treat to meet Dala Watts (creative editor) and Lynnae Endersby (photo editor and stylist) at Voila! restaurant at the Cape Quarters shopping centre in Cape Town. Dala oozes creative energy and I think she and her team does a wonderful job to present crafting in such a deliciously contemporary way as they do in the mag.

Amazing to know that Ideas magazine sells 85000 copies each month. I'm definitely 'liking' it on facebook!

Here's a link to a crocheted scatter cushion done in a granny square pattern (on their website). C x
