Hi! I’m Zoe
I really believe I can be someone who changes the world in a positive way, and that everyone else can be too.
I'm a student, hippie, older sister, bicycle rider, amateur website designer, loom knitter, novice seamstress, and a little bit eccentric.
I love public speaking, photography, writing and cooking. I'm fluent in English, Sarcasm and Bullshit.

I recently accidentally invented a new stitch on my knitting looms because I misread the instructions for an already existing stitch. It’s an awesome mistake though. It’s a muck up of the mock crochet stitch (also known as the z … Continue reading
Not so long ago I posted a sneak peak of a loom knitting project I was working on, the so called More-Than-100-Ways-To-Wear-It, Magic Scarf. I finished the project ages and ages ago and didn’t end up posting about it because, to … Continue reading

It’s really hard for me to write this entry. I hate breaking promises to myself, and this feels like I’m breaking a promise to a lot more people than just me. I woke up this morning, sick. Didn’t feel like moving, being awake, sleeping, did I mention moving? I’m feeling a bit better tonight, but I’m not cured and I’m afraid I might be out-of-action again tomorrow morning. So I had to make a tough decision, do I attempt to finish the book on time and release something less than my best, or do I give myself a little less pressure and work on making the book fantastic?

I am loving making this recipe book! And I wanted to share it a bit more with you, so I’m giving away another free downloadable recipe. This one is not only an old favourite of mine, but it’s also a very popular one. The children I live with love it, my parents love it, and even my friends over at Mission Watoto love it! I hope you love it too… Continue reading
I’m working really hard, but it hardly feels like working because I’m surrounded by this: Continue reading
I never used to be a fan of dates, but they first won me over when mum put them into chocolate date logs. Now I’m loving them in my Grandma’s date loaf with yummy walnuts and deliciousness. Grandma tells me that the recipe is hundreds of years old and she passed it on to me this weekend. Continue reading
One of my favourite science projects was in year 12, when we got to design a garden and then grow it. The group I was in grew green beans, cucumbers, potatoes, oregano and marigolds (calendulas). The cucumbers were the best I have ever tasted, and I’m keen to grow them again. But I also love, love, love marigolds. They make me think of the inch-work song, you know the one… “Inch worm, Inch worm, measuring the marigolds, seems to me, you’d stop and see, how beautiful they are… [etc]” And so, here are some photographs of Marigolds I took back in 2008 with my favourite point-and-shoot camera, enjoy!
