We have just had a little break in Lincolnshire visiting our families. I love going up in the autumn because it is so very autumnal up there. There are so many trees and my mum's garden is full of apples and pears and dahlias. All very inspiring to an absolute... Continue reading

Autumn has definitely arrived here, the weather is greyer and we come home from our dog walk soaked through despite the raincoats. This is when I like to pull out a crafting book or two from my shelves or even treat myself to a new one. On Friday, to my... Continue reading

thank you Beth, how lovely to have kitties, we have a kitty chaser in the form of a (fortunately) very lazy whippet! The kitties are always too smart for him and never get caught Kate x

Over the last few weeks I have been having fun sketching kittens and cats and girls with cats. This little kitten pattern is a simple pretty pattern. I've stitched her up in my favourite pinks and reds (although of course you could use your own favourite happy colours). I even... Continue reading

Getting January presents done now is a great idea! I think January is the one time of year that we don't have any birthdays so it's a nice quiet month for me. I do like the idea of choosing one or two designs and stitching them for different people. x

This year I thought I was organized! I thought I would have the hallowe'en panels ready in plenty of time for any hallowe'en stitching and the little caravan, putting up the tree and new lavender girl kits all ready with no mad late nights working and rushing. But then fate... Continue reading

This week my trusty little Ricoh camera finally gave up the ghost and I had to learn how to use a grown up camera! The truth is it was never my camera in the first place. Everyone in our house loves photography apart from me. It's my guilty secret, I... Continue reading

Hi and thank you for your lovely comment. I'm sorry that you are in pain, I imagine it's hard to get comfortable. The flower globe is a free pattern that is available on the free stuff page of my blog http://www.lilipopo.co.uk/free-stuff.html I think the girl that you saw might just have been a one off and not a pattern unfortunately. The flower gardener and in the garden both have flowers and girls on them but I don't yet have a circular pattern with girls and flowers. Hope this helps Kate x
