It’s must be soft & wooly 🙂

Clouds of Colour

Hello! I hope you’re all well. I just wanted to share with you a crochet cushion cover I have made since being at home. Mum is a HUGE collector of wools so I put some to use and learnt how to crochet a simple granny square, you can check out a tutorial here. I made two large squares, using this technique, to cover one of mums old cushions. I would love to make one giant square for a blanket!

How cute and granny is this!

Earth is the third planet from the Sun and the fifth largest:

 orbit: 149,600,000 km (1.00 AU) from Sun diameter: 12,756.3 km mass: 5.972e24 kg
The Earth as seen from space

Earth is the only planet whose English name does not derive from Greek/Roman mythology. The name derives from Old English and Germanic. There are, of course, hundreds of other names for the planet in other languages. In Roman Mythology, the goddess of the Earth was Tellus – the fertile soil (Greek: Gaia, terra mater – Mother Earth).

It was not until the time of Copernicus (the sixteenth century) that it was understood that the Earth is just another planet.Earth, of course, can be studied without the aid of spacecraft. Nevertheless it was not until the twentieth century that we had maps of the entire planet. Pictures of the planet taken from space are of considerable importance; for example, they…

Must be a whole lot healthier than Nutella! Definitely worth a try 🙂


Creamy-smooth chocolate almond spread ready for toast, dolloping inside crêpes, or drizzling on pancakes or waffles. 

Being hundreds of miles from roads or specialty stores and becoming more curious about how foods we take for granted are actually created drives me to experiment. Today’s challenge? Nutella.

In high school, a German friend introduced me to this chocolate-hazelnut spread that looks a little like peanut butter. But sister, it’s not peanut butter! Nutella is sweet, creamy, and chocolately and is great spread on fruits and breads and a whole lot of other things, or scooped out of the jar and eaten off the spoon!

I found a recipe, but of course I modified it to fit the items in my pantry. Substituting almonds for hazelnuts, and armed with my new stick blender (with nut chopping attachment), I set to work. As I processed the nuts from a grain to coarse  flour…

Like flowers on a wall

convergent journey

Para Clocks is a new project to create custom-designed parametric wall clocks. I love these because:

a) They remind me of the beautiful geometric designs you see in Gothic architecture all across Europe. One of the first that comes to mind is the famous Rose Window in the Notre Dame. I find symmetry and geometry so pleasing to the eye, and the parametric designs of these clocks do a great job of capturing classic beauty using modern techniques.

b) My friends are the creative minds behind it. They’re not paying me to do this promo, but naturally I’m happy to support their work!

And of course, c) The clocks are lovely in and of themselves. Below are a few ready-made Para Clocks designs:

The way the Kickstarter process works, backers make a pledge to support the project. The funding is only paid out if the…
