    Needlecrafter in the making?

    Last time I showed you the start of my Needlecrafting journey. I’ve actually started embroidering now and let me tell you: just because you can crochet, doesn’t necessarily mean you’re good at embroidery too, haha!

    Trying something new – Needlecrafts!

For me, this is half a world away and I’m so excited about this! Upcoming September we will be visiting Johannesburg, …

    YARN 5 book-a-zine: Rebel daughters & good wives

    Rebel daughter… sounds like me, according to my mother! I can very much relate to the new chapter in the latest YARN book-a-zine ‘Woman’. As you might have figured from the theme ‘Woman’, this issue celebrates several aspects of being a woman. (Rebel) Daughter, (Soul) Sister, (Earth) Mother, (The Good) Wife. Quite the list to …
