Hello there! Thanks for visiting.
I'm Suzy. I live in Sydney, Australia with my family.
I have always loved to make things. I knit and sew and print and cook and take photographs. I like travelling to new places, red things, stripes and chocolate. This is my space to document the things I make and the things I do.
When I first started writing here in 2004 I was living in Tokyo, and it was a blog about being a foreigner in Japan. And then it became a kind of craft blog, as I started to sew more and learned to knit. I moved back to Australia in 2007, and have had two children since then. Right now (early 2014) it's about making clothes for myself and the children, restoring old furniture, cooking from scratch and trying to live sustainably in the inner city. And the occasional quilt.
