Although the sun is shining in Canberra today, and the sky is the bluest of blue, and we all have an extra hour in bed :), apparently the calendar says that it’s starting to get a little chilly.

In preparation of the chill, it is time to consider, the possibility of perhaps bringing out the woolen goodies, and as such Soft and Lush is now alive and ready to be taken from the lovely shelves, and tables of Shop Handmade in Canberra.

Here is the first lot of softness in shop.

It’s true, i have crafted some new Soft and Lush, Dress Bling Rings as i like to call them.

Some are styled on antique buttons, some have sparkling goodness that I have whipped up, and others combine old earrings, bits of brooches and odds and ends.

All come together however to give you a taste of some of the luxurious touches that Soft and Lush offer. These will be landing in Shop Handmade in April.

You can see all of them on Facebook.

Enjoy Axx

Well here is the proof, my offspring and I have been hard at it, with all sorts of yarn and sparkling goodies to deliver to Shop Handmade for our April awakening.

It’s been a long time coming, but the collection for Autumn/Winter 2011 is more sparkly than ever giving the beautiful mohair that additional sophisticated oomph!

Here are some photos of our labour of love.

Out of hibernation

Oooh hello my soft and luverlies. It’s been a long time in my cave, or should i say enjoying the outdoor sunshine, wind and rain 😦 . Summer didn’t really seem to arrive, only briefly visited for sporadic periods.

I am glad to let you all know, that my hands have started the big journey into my woollen basket of goodies to start crocheting all manner of accessories for our autumn and winter of 2011. I’ve already finished one piece, let’s call it BIG SOFTY…only because I miscalculated and it has resulted in a grossley oversized beret with pompom, which my daughter laughs at heartily and thinks is silly. Boy this one sure is going to be a winner. Photos to come. 🙂

Looking forward to getting all warm and cosy with you again in the months to come.

Send a hello if you feel the need, I always welcome comments.

Ciao for now

Sleepy time

Hello folks, well it’s been a while since my last post. Truth be known, amongst all the last minute crocheting, and the nearing end of winter, it seems that life in the fast lane is slowly coming to a standstill…and so, my soft and luscious friends, it is nearly time for me to hibernate for the warmer months where I shall away and hermitify in solitude and emerge a butterfly with treble crochet wings in the cooler climes.

Thank you for the eyes and interest during winter.

Love you until next year.

Soft and Lush features in the front window of Shop Handmade, just like a proud mumma seeing her kids on display – silly? Definitely! But makes me smile none-the-less. Thought I’d share these pics of all the winter woollies on display for consumption.

Well it seems like a small eternity since I have delivered stock to Shop Handmade, or even managed to add a new post to this blog, but alas, I have and I just did…and I’m feeling a whole lot better now. There has been a small quiet on this front due to illness, the influenza and trips to Sydney to see off dear dad on his overseas sojourn, as well as family landing in the ACT for the long weekend. And so productivity slowed to a standstill for quite some time.

However, the mice have been fed and are running around that wheel producing all sorts of crochet goodies. Here is a small selection of the deliveries today.

Enjoy. Adelina x.
