It seems all I’m doing lately is playing around with hats and brims, but I’m so excited to share with you this version of the brim (and it looks exactly like the ones in those photos!). So excited in fact I couldn’t wait for my model to get back from school – so here it… Read More I think I’ve cracked it – that hat and the brim! (Russian Cloche/ Panama)
It seems all I’ve been doing lately is playing with lovely mercerised cotton – specifically the Yarnart Begona – which I have to say is amazing to work with! After that hat, and then the other hat, I decided to play with the brim yet again. In the original wonderful pictures of the hats, and… Read More Yet another hat……
A couple of weeks ago I made ‘that hat’ – you know the one, the wonderful facebook pictures of the little girl wearing wondering summer hats, very intricate and covered in beautiful flowers and beads. You can see how I did it here with the help of Louise’s post. Then I decided to try the other one,… Read More The 'Other Hat'
This week has flown by, I remember sitting here at this silly hour of the morning sharing my sunrises lat week while the house slept…. and here I am again!

We lost the scavenger hunt piece of paper within minutes and had to trek over a stream to retrieve it, and the promptly forgot we were supposed to be collecting things as climbing trees and stomping in muddy… Read More A walk in the woods
What a glorious day! I had a little mooch around the garden, and noticed I actually have some flowers! The first washing hung out on the line this year- definitely makes me think Spring is coming! The Girls (as I affectionately call them) are out in the garden free ranging – this is Dhylis, my… Read More The first day of spring
It was half term last week, and we deserted the usual British weather (which I’ve since been told was horrible), for some sunshine and a well needed rest in Cape Verde. We arrived in rain – one of the 7 days of rain the country apparently has – and it showed as nothing was ready… Read More Some time in the sun
We visited my parents this weekend on the South Coast. Here are a few photos of what we got up to – there are some crochet ones too, but they’ll go into another post hopefully with the pattern. Then we went rock climbing and to the beach …….. Beautiful
