About





 💖Welcome to my tiny piece of Blogland!💖

I’m a Highlander living at sea-level now, in beautiful Cape Town, South Africa, where I share a 116-year-old traditional Cape cottage with one husband, a motley crew of two dogs, two cats and three goldfish. My children are grown up and living la dolce vita elsewhere ( sad face ). My addictions are, Crochet, Coffee, Veggies, and Life!😃
I am happiest when crocheting in a patch of Autumn or Spring Sun, with my Cat, Augusta ( aka Babe, Babsie, Darling Face, Smoochy) and a cup of coffee close by. I learned to crochet in November 2012… and have hardly put the hook down since!
Viva la Crochet!

My biggest fan is my Cat, Augusta ( aka Babe ). She is my constant companion and has adopted all my crochet projects as her own. 
😻 I just adore her to bits! 😻


Thank you so much for popping by!
See you in Crochetland

Hello, Monday, you hopeful thing , you!

I've been having the most tremendous time crocheting nipple caps! Yes, you read right. Nipple Caps! My daughter is a stall holder at an annual lifestyle expo and this year the theme was *Carnival*. She decided masks and nipple caps would be a good addition to her stall and asked me if I'd be willing to crochet "a few".



Well, " a few" become 162 pairs and honestly I could have kept going! I became completely addicted! Almost every one was different from the next... and again, I could have crocheted perhaps 100 more pairs and still not run out of ideas! So, what sprang up from all this was ANOTHER BLOG! and a Facebook page. Because, you know, we needed *somewhere* to store all these naughty but nice artifacts. They really are little works of art, I thought, and my daughter has framed a candy striped pair! Her name being Candy and all, no surprise.



The hilarious thing is that neither of us would be caught dead wearing them! We'd be falling about laughing. Well, we wouldn't be laughing if we were dead but you get the drift. It's just not our style! However...we had those gorgeous Burlesque ladies in mind, as well as Bachelorette parties, and so on. Most people are A LOT naughtier than I am. I mean, I'm a Nana! :D xxx
