Scarf It Forward 2014

 Scarf It Forward 2014 | blog post by Homelea Lass

This year I launched Scarf It Forward to wrap warm scarves around the necks of parents that were struggling to make ends meet. I wanted to make their days a little brighter.


An amazing group of Scarvy Ladies volunteered their time, materials and talents to achieve our target, and the scarves were thankfully received and distributed by Helping Hands Outreach Project. A big thank you goes to all involved for making this happen!

Do You Need An Inspiration Injection?

Do you need an inspiration injection? | a blog post by Homelea Lass about the Artful Business Comference


Every now and again I find myself getting a bit stale. Not in an old piece of bread way but in a thinking kind of way. I find I need to step outside my regular routine and inject some inspiration into my thoughts to keep them fresh and fun. I like to think of getting an inspiration injection as “investing in myself”. One of the ways I do this is by attending the Artful Business Conference, and you can still get access to the videos! Yay, it’s inspiration time!

My Pumpkin Soup Recipe – wholesome and delicious soul food

 My Pumpkin Soup Recipe - wholesome and delicious soul food | blog post by Homelea Lass


Pumpkin soup is soul food. As the first spoonful enters my mouth it’s delicious goodness spreads and it fills the cracks inside me with it’s warmth.


Somehow pumpkin soup always makes me feel good on the inside, so I thought that I’d share my soul food recipe with you. This is how I like to have my pumpkin soup – with plenty of garlic, a bit of rosemary and lots of organic goodness. It’s great to have as a light dinner, or for lunch. (If you want to read more on how to eat more wholesome food pop over here).

Ebb and Flow | blog post by Homelea Lass   

Last week I got knocked down by the flu. It was like I fell into a deep, dark hole where it was difficult to summons the energy to move. While I was at my sickest it felt like I was missing something, but I just couldn’t put my finger on what it was.

Crochet a Field of Wild Flowers

 Crochet a Field of Wild Flowers | blog post by Homelea Lass


Creating brings me joy. It feels good to get hit by a flash of inspiration, and I love getting immersed in the design process of sorting out what materials to use and the intricacies of how to make it.


The beginnings of my crocheted Field of Wild Flowers Rug started with a flash of inspiration. I’d been admiring Linda Permann’s Dots and Poppies Baby Blanket pattern for awhile and I had the intention of making it “one day”. I’d bought Heirloom organic cotton yarn to make a different rug but decided the yarn wasn’t suitable for the pattern. Then one day I decided that the yarn and Dots and Poppies pattern should go together – bingo!
