my movie has been funded!

So cool, the movie I backed on kickstarter has reached its goal and is going to get funded!




I think I have watched this trailer perhaps 10 times and it still fills me with incredible joy and still makes me a bit teary.

Its not too late to become a  backer and perhaps get your very own copy of the DVD sent out to you, or receive a free download........

The internets. Making it so easy to connect and be part of good things.

Crochet with a Duck and a Llama

It's on again folks.

If you are a fellow ONCian who thinks they might just like to learn the gentle art of CROCHET, well, Alpaca Magic is running another CRAZY ABOUT CROCHET course and you can learn to crochet from a duck.

This was such fun last year. The course runs over three Saturday afternoons from 1:00pm to 4:00pm.

The workshops happen in a sunny warm space at Alpaca Magic out at Sutton. Dates for this year are:

Saturday 16th, 23rd and 30th June
From 1:00pm - 4:00pm
At Alpaca Magic, 2771 Sutton Rd, Sutton.



  • Session 1 will cover the basic stitches, reading crochet recipes, yarns and basic Llama hugging techniques. 
  • Session 2 will have you all ready to start on a lovely project of your choosing - perhaps a nice beanie or noodley spiral scarf.
  • Session 3 will see us finishing up our projects, leaning another new stitch and going 3D into the world of crochet flowers. 



Cost will be $160 for the whole three days including a cuppa, lots of support and giggles and fun, enchanted encounters with the llamas and alpacas, course notes, your very own crochet hook and some practice yarn.

EVEN IF YOU HAVE NEVER HELD A CROCHET HOOK BEFORE AND ARE ESPECIALLY SCARED you are very very welcome. You will be able to buy beautiful yarn made from the fleeces of the alpacas that live at the farm - home grown fleece! Of course you are welcome to use other yarns of your choosing because THIS IS ABOUT CROCHET LOVE.

What do you think? Prospective Gentleman Crocheters are very welcome - CROCHET IS NOT FOR SISSIES you know.

Enrollment forms are available from the Alpaca Magic website. Is this a nice thing to do?

You betcha.
