You did, as always, such an amazing job. It is a real testament to your character that you got there. No easy feat considering have two children and this - your craft, is something you do in your spare time.

Put your feet up and machine away and enjoy a WELL earned break...not too long though!

I am so looking forward to seeing shadow box...


Congratulations on being published again. Echo looks very beautiful and intriguing. Glad to see your ideas still are flowing despite arduous deadlines.


I have to go find a copy of the mag..congrats! :)


I'm a little sad not to be in the same city as the markets but I am looking forward to what's coming next.



I wish I could be in sydney for that weekend! your stall looks great, Alison. Congratulations! I am thinking of participating in some markets in Melbourne later this year myself with some new things I am working on... See how I go with meeting my own deadlines, guess :)

You know, I've been secretly ogling your stash on Ravelry, and I'm looking forward to seeing some divine black socks in the making!

I've been messing around with dye - if I ever manage to perfect the art of the dark dark skein, I'll send you one!

Watcher here. I wanted to write a response for the post you wrote about your adorable children, two posts down.

For Max, have you ever considered having him film himself on a camcorder or even on a digital camera, and then watch it together (even if it's a few seconds long) later on in the day? That may help him understand why he could be watching something done during the day but it's nightfall. Also a wonderful creative outlet for him to create his own "fictional" reality TV. Just a thought. Mostly wanted to suggest a way to help him understand TV better. It is indeed a weird concept to grasp. I didn't have as much trouble with that as just a decade ago there weren't things like "reality TV" to confuse me with fictional programming. After all, most programs were fake to begin with. :)



The market sounded great, I really wish I could have been there. I don't know where to get a copy of stitch from here, I must search as it looks such a nice magazine.


omg omg omg the japanese book... !!!!!
so wish i'd been able to come to the markets - they look just incredible.
