When I'm not stitching, I'm crafting (of course!)

I love hand-stitching, but boy doesn't it take a long time to finish a project! Sometimes I just want to do something quick and easy, or try a completely different craft.

A couple of months ago I went crazy making fridge magnets. I made some from comics, some from maps, some from vintage music. Then I made some from my favourite Japanese Chiyogami papers. (When I say some, what I really mean is LOTS. Once I started I couldn't stop.)


I ended up cutting out snippets of patchwork quilts and applique projects from annual Australian Patchwork and Quilting diaries and turning those into magnets too. I've listed some here in my shop, I hope you like them.
