Made many years ago and now on a mission again.


OUCH! Demanded her first offering.


Finished! Took most of the day. All hand stitched.


With mala which I did NOT make. This is Carolina Gonzalez work and I bought it many years ago.








Chakra blanket

Moving away a little from charity work with this one having started making my own chakra blanket. This is Style Craft DK light purple (crown chakra) and dark purple for third eye. I went with a light purple as I am not keen on white. 5 more colours to go, but this is a start.


The pattern is by Bella Coco called corner to corner blanket and the video can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I5G9IM24LFU
Very easy and quick considering I only started yesterday. It would also make a nice pattern for baby blankets and bonding squares for the Leeds Children’s hospital.



… I can’t believe it has been that long since my last entry, considering that I only just started the blog at that time. So, let’s see if I can get back into the swing of things.

What has happened since then? Not to sure as it has been to long but a few things listed here:

Redone my Usui Reiki I and II

I covered Crystal Vibrational healing


Hopi ear candling

What am I up to now:

Pilates course starts next month

Considering Barre instructor

Correspondence course for pre & postnatal yoga and children’s yoga

I crochet for Knit, Crochet or Sew for cancer UK and if you want to join, then check out their facebook page here

A little something that I have made. An Angel mala based on 111 beads. The number seems to have more meaning in my life than 108 🙂.


I have used white, plastic crackle beads giving it the shimmer/ glitter effect.



Silver spacer beads and a silver plated wing added.

#2 in the

Crazy Bunch Collection:

A bunny in the making, but I made a different pattern so they are not all exactly the same.


I did have to make a second one because the bunny above was to big for the small fleece that I had left over.


Make sure you stitch everything on FIRST before you sew both halves together.


And here is the finished result.

Mindy Misfit + Candy Crazy



  • I bought some bonderweb, but was too lazy to cut it out and ironing it on so I just stitched everything on without it. Not really happy about it because it just highlights laziness. It also means that the patches will probably fray more than they would with it.
  • I made sure to leave a bigger opening this time and it worked out fine. I also closed it up using the ladder stitch this time which looks really tidy and “professional”. Well, at least better than Mindy Misfits seam and this is what is all about. You can only get better with practice.
  • I bought a bigger bag of purposely designed stuffing which works out a lot better than cotton wool.
