Nothing else MATters

Making some good progress on Tash’s currently.  Finished a page this week. Only 3 more to go!!! Can’t wait to get this out of the way.

With the first monthly meeting scheduled for Crafty Bitches this weekend I suddenly realised I needed to get my a into g and get my craft done.  Would be rather sad if the person who came up with this idea and who is also the host had nothing to show for her monthly endeavours.  So I made a door mat.

Kinda looks like it was drawn on my a 3 year old with sun ripened crayons but I will take it as a win for a first attempt.  First daughter tells me its too cutesy and therefore sucks, yet my cousin is all excited and wants me to make her one identical.  Considering locking first daughter out of the house.

Am going to turn the smiley face in yellow into a paw print I think as it really doesn’t resemble a smiley face in the slightest.

Enjoy your week everyone xxx



Cross Stitcher, knitter, home cook, HVAC specialist, avid movie and TV watcher, reader and mum. I work full time and I'm not very good at sitting still so I love to try all sorts of crafting things from scrap-booking to ceramic work, but mostly I stitch. Heaven & Earth designs would be my favourite. I have had some major health scares in the past few years that I would not of expected to experience for at least another 20 odd years (born in 1971 so am currently only 45). Due to this I have a bucket list and its full of things right from books I must read to adventures I must achieve before I croak. I am always at the gym making myself stronger and healthier to fight my challenges and achieve my goals. Before the challenges I thought there would always be enough time and was just drifting along. You know how it is. Work, chores, kids, sleep, get up tomorrow and start again. I didn't really have any clear goals. I knew I wanted to travel but that was pretty much it. I was gaining weight steadily and didn't do anything much outside of the house and work. Since the challenges I have managed to get almost front row for both the Eagles and Elton John (expensive but you can't take it with you right), have had a day tour Kayaking around a lake and hiked the Tongariro Crossing. None of these would I even have considered 3 years ago. This is only the beginning :D Life is a gift and its what you make of it. You want it then you best be prepared to go get it :D

    1. Thanks 🙂 One of the ladies bought her mother who wanted to change it to witches but I refuse haha 🙂 May need to change it though as the husbands are thinking of starting up a craft beer club for the same time. I see this ending in dial a drivers everywhere 😀

      1. Crafty bastards? If they do set up a beer club, may I recommend Parrot Dog? Though it would mean a trip to Wellington if they wanted it fresh-poured at the cellar door. On the other hand, bitches and bastards alike could probably have a crafty weekend here.
