whip up round up MAY 09 (D)
Weekends are already so hectic here, with kids sport and activities
taking up the whole of Saturday morning - school working bees or
cleaning the house filling in the remainder of Saturday - which leaves
only Sunday to get anything done - gardening, mending, general
household maintenance - when is a girl supposes to craft?
Anyway just received the latest mixtape zine in the mail -
and there is a little article from me in there about crafting with
kids - love the cover and there is a handy little pullout calendar
too. Also Ina
sent me this link to Melanie
Falick books - where Larissa - author of the fab book knitalong is
organising a charity knitting event.
