Stourhead

and a seventh birthday

Stourhead

We celebrated Oli's 7th birthday this year with a walk and a cream tea at Stourhead. Just us. It was sunny and very hot, like the day he was born, but the walk down to the lake was beautifully shady...

A Fourth Birthday

and a giveaway winner

A Fourth Birthday

Hello. I feel like my posts are getting increasingly sporadic as the end of the school term approaches - I apologise. Life is full of end of nursery and school activities, birthdays, anniversaries, revision and a constant feeling that I have forgot something!

I’m just popping in today to announce the winner of the Pearl Lowe Vintage Craft Book giveaway and share some photos from Lulu’s 4th Birthday…

Hello. I hope you are having a lovely week. It’s Lulu’s birthday this week so I’m trying to get organised (when I say ‘trying’ I mean writing lots of lists and not really getting much done.) But I thought I’d pop in and share some images of the crochet collars I designed recently for Knitcrate...

Crochet - Granny Square Blanket

Hello! Thank you to everyone that entered the knit Collage giveaway. It made me very happy to read your comments (and that you love beautiful yarn as much as I do!) I meant to post this last week but I got hit with a virus that left me only feeling able to do the necessities like feeding the little people! I’m feeling much better this week so I thought I would post the winner and show Lulu’s FINISHED crochet blanket…

Kaffe Fassett

A Life In Colour Exhibition

Kaffe Fassett

It's half term this week so all the children are home - which means a good dose of chaos here! I've been working on lots of projects but as I've not had the time to photograph any I thought I would share some of the photos I took from the Kaffe Fassett exhibition last weekend...

Pin It Forward UK

Pin It Forward UK

I’ve been happily pinning away for a few years now and have found it so useful and such a source of inspiration. So when the Pinterest team asked if I’d like to contribute a post as part of the UK launch, Pin It Forward UK, I was very excited. For the month of May 300 UK bloggers will be sharing what Pinterest means to them and some of their favourite boards…
