Ziss Week.

I love my little teensy tiny and very old fashioned rose. The only problem is that they are too small to go in even my smallest vase so what to do with them - pop them into a miniature salt shaker which a friend gave to me a long time ago.
This week has been very quiet. Archie recovered well from his bout of croup but we have all been left pretty exhausted. Usually I can't wait until night time when the boys are in bed, the really good shows have started on t.v. and I can dive into a project. However, over the past few nights I have been lying aimlessly on the couch, counting down the minutes until I can slink off to bed. Last night my lights were out before 9pm - unheard of!!!
So not much to offer up on the making front I'm afraid. Hugo and Jonno have been busy though. Hugo decided to make another butterfly house with my cake cover and became very frustrated after setting it up nicely with flowers and leaves, when he couldn't find anything to occupy it. Jonno is such a nice dad that he snuck away, found a cutting stamp/thing and some pink cardboard and made butterflies. He then filled up Hugo's net and came into the room shaking them up as though they could really fly.
Hugo was thrilled.
This is my only contribution to creativity this week. A stripy back for my hexie cushion.
This post is being written from bed. It is mid morning and there seems little point in rushing around. I have an addictive book, Gabrielle Hamilton's 'Blood Bones and Butter', clean sheets, boys doing farmy things with Jonno and a headache. I ask you... what would you do?
Have a good weekend.
Lots of love,
Kate xxooxxooxx.


  1. Hey kate, i am doing the same - lying in bed listening to the rain and catching up on a bit of blog reading, a very lazy morning! Hope your head feels better soon, and i love that stripey cushion back, once again you have created something fabulous!! Have great weekend, julie:)

  2. Given that i have overdone myself this week and am learning my limits I am also going back to spend more time in bed and maybe read a few more lines in my latest library book. Rest well. Cherrie

  3. How blessed you are to have such a thoughtful husband. Hope you enjoyed your lazy morning!

  4. Lying in bed with a book sounds pretty good right now. I love the striped back for your cushion.

  5. Dearest Kate

    I really love your blog, so pretty, colourful and inspiring. I do hope you don't mind but I have made a pair of your stunning angel crochet wings and have linked your tutorial on my latest post on my blog. I want the world to see how beautiful these are and hopefully more baby angels will be born this Christmas xox Penelope
