Friday Favourites

by Kate on July 1, 2011

I was looking through my flickr favourites the other day, wondering what is it about some photos that makes me hit the ‘favourite’ button. Is it the colour, the project, do I find it inspiring or do I simply just like what I see…for no paticular reason. My mosaic this week is about all these […]

Show & Tell:

by Kate on April 20, 2011

A new addition to my ‘white’ collection. As soon as I spotted this on etsy, I knew I had to have one. It reminds me of the many screaming moments we had back in the baby days and how well I didn’t cope. The lovely Susie had me at her place yesterday, doing some other […]


Winding Mesh Scarf

by Kate on April 19, 2011

Confession: I can knit but I’m not a knitter. I truly wish it were different as there are so many beautiful knitting patterns out there but I just don’t find it as relaxing as the hook and it all comes down to making a mistake. With the hook, it’s a simple undo and re-work…with the […]
