The Crafter's Way 131 - Blogging Around Australia

 Here is this week's Messenger column , Blogging around Australia.

It’s been a while since we visited some of the inspiring craft blogs in the creative world. I thought we might stick close to home and blog around Australia. Apologies to the Northern Territory, I simply couldn’t find any craft bloggers from that neck of the woods. this blog is our first from NSW. This is a really easy to navigate blog with categories on craft, amigurumi, knitting and sewing. No tutorials. NSW be sure to check out the author’s gorgeous knitted then felted slippers. ACT The author has been blogging since 2006 so there is a lot of content here, unfortunately not all of it is craft. What’s there is inspiring. ACT One to make you re-think the joys of instant gratification. ACT Anybody who has a stash addiction will relate to the author’s recent de-stashing dilemmas. Vic Trying to craft using recycled materials. A girl after my own heart. Vic One of my favourite pics from this bunch. The author says, “My work is quick, not pain-stakingly perfect - there is too much else going on to worry about perfection. Tasmania More knitting, Just in case you weren’t aware that knitting is hugely popular. SA. The author has a novel way of displaying here finished creations. WA My other favourite due to the Reverse Applique. Qld Gorgeous, gorgeous images of the artist’s illustration ad calligraphy work. Qld I got itchy fingers when I started seeing the images of these felted creatures.

Enjoy your trip, it’s cheaper than a holiday.
