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.

Entries in inside our house (34)


in our house

WHERE: in our diningroom/kitchen

WHAT: a really cosy corner, the bench is Gustavian-inspired, the colour on the wall is Auberge from Plascon, the cushions and scatters are all "home" made, the bird houses are not nearly enough and the orchid is fake!

WHY: my favourite spot in the afternoon where I curl up, with the stacking doors open, listen to the birds, feel a breeze on my skin, watch the kids play cricket on the grass, while I'm doing something crafty. And a pot of tea at arms length, of course. I LOVE my home!


i love colour (in and around our house) this morning


Hope all my lovely friends have a marvellous weekend! C x


one of the reasons why i love my mother

She took something that doesn't belong (a weed from our garden!) and put it into something I've never used (don't know why) in exactly the right spot (just look at the colours) without me even asking! Thanks, Ma! C x


at my house ...

... we are experiencing ill-health. First Sebastian came down with Chicken-pox, then Benjamin with a fever which has come and gone for the last 5 days (but no "pocken chicks" yet - that's what the kids call it). Christi was diagnosed with severe Tonsillitis yesterday. And now Tippy! She's the Whippet on the left (Chloe, her sister, is on the right). This morning when we got up, her mouth was swollen and she has strange small bumps on her back. Is this Sympathetic Pocken chicks? I'm off to the vet.
