Why is it that a bunch of flowers makes a room feel brighter and happier? I like to have a bunch of flowers on my kitchen table because it lifts the room and makes me feel happy.

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!

This week I felt the need to learn how to knit continental style. After 2 years of solid crocheting I followed my intuition, picked up my knitting needles and did a youtube search for continental knitting.

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).

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.

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!

I love entering my crochet into country shows and I get a bit excited when I get the competition schedule of my local show. Little did I know when I received this year’s Chinchilla Show schedule that I would end up improving my crochet skills. I’d love to share with you how it happened so you can improve your crochet skills too.
