aka Jaime - I appreciate the creative side of life
Interests: Thank you for sharing your creative wonderful ideas with me. I find reading blogs very inspiring and get much joy from taking your suggestions and applying them to my own life. Maybe one day I will be brave enough to take the plunge into keeping my own blog. You are all so open, honest and generous with your posts and I couldn't help thinking how unfair it is of me not let you in a little and tell you about me. So here is my updated profile! Things I adore Jane Austen, my frizzle bantam chicken trio, Mr Smoked Cheese, cooking using home grown produce, African drumming, hand sewing, knitting in front of a wood fire, my cat Belle & the starry sky

Looks like I got well enough to check in here just in time. I have everything in common with Miss Clara and now have cravings for a cupcake. Love the new banner I would imagine you have been dreaming in code lately. Very fab!

Hi Meg, I truly think you and your business is fantastic but 3am is just a wee bit to early for me. Very disappointed as the new book looks fantastic and would have loved to get the scoop!

These things must go in circles because seeing the above photos have absolutely inspired me to get off my butt unpack the IKEA boxes I brought 2 months ago and set to straightening up my crafty space. Goodness I don't even have the wonderful exciting excuse of being pregnant. Better get to it!

What a wonderful and very practical idea which could became a precious keepsake in the future. I reckon this could also be a good personal touch for wrapping a small gift doubling as part of the present.
Very lovely it is such a sweet surprise when you turn a quilt over to find such a beautiful hidden design. Do you put labels with your name and date on your quilts?

I found that doing a clothkit skirt was a great way to dip my toes in first feel comfortable with the process before diving right in. Fingers crossed, I am sure it is going to look made for you!

You could do a "huckleberry finn" themed 2nd birthday with fishing rods, picnic lunch, straw hats, making little rafts they release in the water could be super cute fun. It must be lovely to have such a precious place so close to escape to.

I recently picked up some seed packets of kale more out of curioursity then anything else as I had never heard of such a thing. She said it was a bit like lettuce and was I was thinking of growing it and worst case I would feed it to my chooks. Just wondering what you do with it?

I know I am late to the party but I didn't want to let this one go without saying thank you for sharing so much with us and congrats on this big milestone. You might consider getting the blog printed in book form through somewhere like blurb in celebration. Looking forward to continuing to hear about sprouts, kittens, papery goodness and all things you!

I was so upset this weekend when one of my little cats brought in a darling brown tiny bird which I promptly rescued and let out. Unfortunetly it hid in the bushes and I was unable to see for certain that it could fly not too much later I spotted my other cat having it for dinner. I really don't mind the cats catching and eating mice but it breaks my heart and makes me feel so guilty when they eat little birds. Just wondering if you have come across this with your barn cats and how you deal with it?

The wee felt book would be a perfect activity for doing at a book themed party like the one I saw over at Amelies House in Feb. I of course grabbed my copy of Alphabet glue and can't wait to get cracking with my nieces this coming school holidays.
