Sunshine in Winter.

Paper cranes are such a good way to fill in a few minutes at the end of a studio morning.
I haven't been spending much time up in the studio as all of my work seems to be much more couch based with crochet hooks and knitting needles. When all of the sunshine floods in though, it changes my focus as I don't want to waste any of that precious winter light.
The boys revelled in the weekend weather, making bird houses to go with the milk bottle feeder that Archie made at Cubs. Archie decided he had better grind up the bird seed with the mortar and pestle as he thought the seeds might be to big for their little beaks. Awwwwww. I love my big boy.

And to answer a question that keeps cropping up. The pattern for this hexagon blanket comes from Lucy at attic24. Her patterns really are the best.
Time to cook dinner for the fam!
Lots of love,
Kate xxooxx.


  1. Aww, your boys are so cute, Kate. It's great they are taking an interest in nature. Meanwhile, what a fantabulous blanket! The colours are to-die-for.

  2. I had a little time out with Stanley today. He's so cute! xxxxx

  3. I love visiting your blog as it's always so uplifting.

    I'll definately be using your colour way ideas for a similar blanket if you don't mind. The colours stand out so beautifully.


  4. I made my first paper crane ever just the other day...inspired by you.

    I have even been looking at sock patterns yesterday....inspired by you.

    Best not wait for socks....me not looking at pattern any more, just too bloody hard!!


  5. I can count on you for always having something colorful and wonderful to feast eyes upon!

  6. Just found your blog via Attic24 and am in love with your version of the hexagon blanket. It almost looks like polka dots (I am a fan of all things dotty!). I'm inspired to try one though I'm very new to crochet :)
