It has certainly been a while since I posted – for that I apologize!

I have been very busy in the intervening time – July was a week away with the family, with lots of little bits of crafting going on ready for a swap – crochet mats, I-cords, doilies and washcloths. Since then I have been doing so much – started doing art journalling for myself, paper crafting, lots and lots of knitting, some crocheting and a little bit of hand sewing. Most of this crafting, especially the yarn work, was for swaps, and I have received some wonderful items in return.

Currently in 3 swaps over on Crafster, so got lots and lots of crafting to do – mainly knitting, but a little bit of sewing as well – will post about those later 🙂

I also received a wonderful present from LeslieHappyHeart (someone from Craftster) for my two boys – I haven’t got access to a camera at the moment, so as soon as I can get some pictures I will show you the awesomeness that found it’s way here from Williamsburg VA.

Thats about it for now, so happy crafting, and I’ll try to keep this up a bit more from now on 🙂

Why ‘Thread, Needles and Pins’? Simple really – thats what I use most in my crafting.

Thread can be anything from fine sewing thread for hand and machine sewing, through to super chunky knitting wool, and taking in lots of different threads in between.
I use the thread with various different tools – sewing needles – both hand and machine, knitting needles (or pins if you prefer) and crochet hooks.

I will be back soon with posts of things I have done recently!
