Welcome to my 'other blog' the one that explores my crafty side. I have been a maker of 'things' since childhood. By nature I'm creative. I still love to write, and you can click on this link to visit my blog: Hanging On My Word, which is where I indulge in the thought and word side. Although a teacher by profession, I don't offer tutorials. This is my showcase of projects I like to share. So pull aside the curtains and let's begin (I'm a bit theatrical too!).

Twinkly Tomato


I know, I know, but I couldn’t resist. This was a request from someone who saw the (free) pattern  on Ravelry by Amanda Berry of Fluff and Fuzz, and said "I want one!”. In my stash were two reds; one more suited to a poppy and one just the right colour but with lurex thread running through it - hence the twinkly bit.

Once again, I tried to emulate Amanda’s, but instead of looking comical and cute, my tomato looks somewhat menacing, like an extra from 'The Attack of the Killer Tomatoes’ - I’m sure that’s a film.


He looks a bit more placid on the ketchup bottle (copying Amanda again).
Find him with all my other crafty projects on my Ravelry page.
