Stanley and his Mother... and other bits.

Stanley would like to introduce you to his mother. Her name is Stella but you are welcome to call her Stanley's mother. I think she is a very vintagey rabbit, and she particularly likes to wear bright red lipstick. Stella is a bit furry but only in a nice soft way.
This is my current knitting project, an extremely long white and yellow striped scarf for winter. Both balls of wool are 100grams so I am wondering what I will run out of first, patience or wool.
Now, down to business. First of all, huge apologies for not posting anything for the last week. It has just been one of those crazy times where life is busy on every front. The boys have had their school boat day (that is where the photos are from), a huge scout mud slide day (on the farm), a day trip to Rotorua, school, birthday parties (not their own), shenanigans and so on and so forth. One of those really wonderful times when you can almost see them grow with all the challenges coming their way. Can you believe the photo of Hugo above - he is not even five yet (but give him two weeks...).
This photo is of Archie with his cousin William sailing an optimist. Goodness only know what they were talking about.
They just grow so quickly. There is hardly anything left of him being 7... 8 is looming to0 quickly!!!
Lots of love,
Kate xxooxx.
P.S. Thank you so much for you wonderful comments on Flora, I can't wait to get another up soon.


  1. I love Stanley and Stella!!I just downloaded pattern for Flora today morning. Actually want to make a bunny family. Thank you so much for the pattern!!

  2. Is Stella a bit racey? I think she's holding a cigarette in her hand and leaning a bit too suggestively against the wall!! xox

  3. I'm loving the stripy scarf, it's very cute!

  4. Oh I love Stella. She looks like she'd be the mum at school that all the other mums are quietly jealous of, and all of Stanley's friends think she's oh so cool, and Stanley mostly doesn't mind kissing her goodbye at the scho gate, as long as none of her lipsticks smears off onto his cheek!
    Does Stanley have a dad, or perhaps maybe a super cool 'mum's friend', who rides a vintage motobike......

  5. Those little Stella and Stanley are such cutey rabbits!
    Kate :)
