A Splash of Colour for the Morning.

I needed to escape the house for a little while and enjoy a bit of colour and some fresh cooler air. It has been such a long hot summer that I began to think Autumn might never arrive. But here it is, arriving silently during the night and welcoming us to the new day with its crispness.
I had to include our dog Bertie and our chook (Chook?, they are all white). Who can resist a toothy grin or a feathered empress.
Archie's hat is now almost finished, he is insisting I add goblin ears (crocheted then attached with safety pins). I am loving the stripes being added in purl - this has given me so much inspiration for planning Hugo's vest which will be on the needles soon.
The bunting is still up in the garden. I was going to take it down today but it is only 1.5 weeks until Archie's medieval feast so it seems a little pointless... and it is so nice walking through the garden with it. The world just needs more bunting to spread that whole peaceful handmade feeling.
Well, back to making Archie's costume, there is nothing like cutting out gingham fleur-de-lis or attaching gold cord... Sorry if I am sounding a little jaded at the moment - the youngest member of our family has begun to wake up a few times during the night, thank goodness he is so cute in the morning is all I can say.


  1. My compliment for your blog and pictures included,I encourage you to photoblog

    Greetings from Italy,


  2. Lots of lovely pics here as always! I would keep the bunting up forever too. I have a waking in the night baby at the moment too. Always just as I have fallen asleep it seems! Best of luck. :)

  4. A glorious colourful start to my morning! Poor you with the sleepless nights - hope it improves soon!x

  5. You're not going to take your fab bunting down are you Kate?! The Birthday party went brilliantly, I can see that from your photos, what an event, all the other mums will be wondering how they're going to live up to your standards! I'm starting to believe you should run a children's party company, because it looks like you're all ready to get up and running with all the partying you've been organising. And the hat looks rather fantastic, looking forward to it being suitably modelled by a cute little boy. Love Vanessa xxx (do you mind if i knit)

  6. I forgot to say, I'm totally charmed by Bertie,what a happy chappie! Love Vanessa xxx (do you mind if i knit)

  7. I love your little bunny, very sweet. And I would keep the bunting up forever if it didn't rain so much in this country! It looks really lovely.
