My new shop is now open!

Hi everyone! I hope you have had a good weekend. It was a long weekend here in Australia as we were celebrating Anzac Day. I have spent the last few days excitedly stocking my new shop. Yes! New shop!

Madu: Needles, Hooks & Notions

Madu.etsy.com specializes in needles, hooks and notions. I have super smooth and light bamboo needles and hooks, cute little stitch markers and row counters, and beautiful silk needles and hooks organizer roll.

The bestest bit is that it will always offer FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE!

So pop on over to MADU, have a browse and whether you buy or not, add it to one of your favourites shop ok. I hope to be stocking a bigger range of stuff over the next few months.

Thanks guys and I’ll see you back here on Friday with a couple of crafty FOs. Enjoy the rest of your week! 😀

Crafters rally to help Haiti

It feels my heart with warmth knowing how quickly the crafting community has responded to the Haiti emergency. Yarn Harlot threw up the knit-signal encouraging knitters to make directed donations to the MSF, the Craft Hope Etsy store opened its doors to handmade donations and 100% of the proceeds goes to Doctors without Borders and many Ravelry designers have pledged part of their proceeds to help Haiti relief efforts.

I am doing my small bit to help by donating 50% of the proceeds of all my patterns on Ravelry from now till the 31st of January to the MSF; Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international, independent, medical humanitarian organisation that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, healthcare exclusion and natural or man-made disasters, like the people of Haiti.

Ravelry store: http://www.ravelry.com/stores/salihan-crafts

If you have queued my patterns for future projects, why not buy them now and help me do my bit. If you are not interested in any of my patterns, please check out all the other great patterns on Ravelry who have pledged to help Haiti.

Thank you so much crafters.

My Craft Space

I have organized my craft space and I’ve kept it clean and tidy for a few weeks now. Hard to believe that my new system stood up against overly enthusiastic stash enhancement shopping sprees and even more yarn acquisition from a generous friend and the dabbling of yet another craft hobby and most importantly, “I’ve-got-a-great-idea-that-I-must-do-it-right-now!” moments!

Computer workspace
Ifa, my female cat, pretty much lives on the printer. The only time she gets up voluntarily is when I’m cooking or eating or when it’s her dinner time. I normally kick her out of the room halfway through the day so that she can get some exercise.
My computer workspace

Craft workspace
It’s so good to have a table just for my sewing and crafting. The white board and stackable storage boxes helps keep me on track and in check. Cats have learned to keep off this area, otherwise, Mummy goes psycho!
My craft workspace

Store related containers
Two of my 50 litre containers hold my store related materials, stock and yarn. My thinking is that if these boxes are overflowing, I’m not selling enough products quickly enough. Time to re-think a few things.
Store related containers

Yarn stash
The largest of the containers is 57 litres and it holds all my stash yarn. I really can’t afford to have any more than this much yarn. I don’t have the space or the money to let this grow any bigger. I have enough stash yarn to keep me knitting and crocheting for at least one year! Although, I will make allowances for free yarn. I’m not that silly!

Knitting WIP
I have Shawl Collar Vest [pattern] and Feather & Fan Comfort Shawl [pattern] on my needles now. I am almost finished with the vest and I’m obsessively knitting it every chance I get.

Crocheting WIP
These are hot off my crochet hooks. I’m just waiting on a delivery to put the finishing touches on them. Watch this space for my new Christmas crochet pattern. Coming very soon!

Did you like the voyeuristic peek into my craft room? I’ve shown you mine, now show me yours. 😉
