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.

knuffels à la carte

Knuffels à la carte se website laat my dink aan 'n tombola tafel by 'n kerk bazaar. Ontmoet vir Clio, Suzy, Lilly en Lucy (hierbo). C x

transformation

My oudste het 16 jaar oud geword (sjoe). En ‘n baie mooi sestien daarby...

So om dit te vier, is daar partytjie gehou by ons huis Saterdagaand. Ons partytjieresep: deure oop, meubels uit, goeie musiek, lekker kos en goeie vriende (die keer hare). Dit werk elke keer.

Dit voel soos gister wat ek haar as ‘n pap baba in my arms gehou het. Ek moet dit sê: Sy’t so gou groot geword en al is die tienerjare nie maanskyn en rose nie, bly sy my mooiste hart-se-punt.

Ek kan nie wag om te sien wat sy met haar lewe gaan maak nie.

ideas magazine

Hierdie is definitief 'n boksie wat ek kan tiek vir die week. 'n Naaldesakkie (wat ek BAIE graag eerder vir myself wou hou) vir die April uitgawe van Idees Tydskrif. Wie weet, dalk kan ek 2 ure afknyp hierdie naweek en vir my ook ene maak...

Drie dinge is verseker: ek is mal oor die grys/geel kombinasie, Ebony&Ivory se lint is die beste en ek kan reguit stik.

Hoop jy geniet joune (die naweek natuurlik!) Cornel x

anne-valerie dupond

Using reclaimed textiles or worn clothes, French textile artist Anne-Valerie Dupond hand-sews these sculptures on commission. Amazing!

i can never get enough

of how fabrics influence each other.

Just finished 12 for a friend's shop, Succulent Decor. These aprons will be worn by staff members. I'm sure Anisa's clients would also want to wear them. Mind you, I want to wear one!

So be it.

This one turned out to be a lot of FUN - like it's owner!

Promise I won't blog about every ... single ... one.

for mona

A more traditional combination of colours and designs. A fabric I would call Antique Rose (colour Teastain) on the outside with three different types of ticking stripe and some left-overs of a paisley fabric by Ralph Lauren Home thrown in!

Many happy hours of knitting and crocheting, Mona! C x
