Hello! Sorry! I've been away for so long! It's a combination of Tilly being more active, going back to studying and just not really having anything to post about. Anyways, while browsing online and in the mall, I noticed that there are a lot of mini backpacks for sale.

But for now, since Tilly is only 3 months old, she really has no choice! Ha! So when JJ requested a bunny hat (he later decided he doesn't want… Continue reading Crochet Infinity Scarf Rabbit Scoodie

You can now purchase… Continue reading Crochet Frida Clutch
Here's something I've been working on since before the baby was born, but have only just finished 2 weeks ago. Partly because having a newborn baby meant that it's a bit hard to do stuff in general, and partly because I had other WIPs. The Hygge CAL by Scheepjes is gorgeous! This is the first… Continue reading My completed Hygge CAL 2017 by Scheepjes
I don't know whether I was scrolling through Instagram or exploring Etsy, but whichever it is, I came across some hand carved crochet hooks. Not hand turned, hand carved. From sticks and twigs. They looked awesome! So unique and different, but also very pretty and rustic. I could've just bought one of these beautiful hand… Continue reading I made my own crochet hooks!
