New Hex Blanket

There's a gorgeous blanket by Lutter Idyl that I've had saved in my Pinterest folder for ages now. I've loved it forever :) So, when searching for ideas for a new project, I decided to have a go at making my own version... and here it is! I won't be putting it in the shop because it's not my design. It'll just rest in the presents drawer now until needed :)

Colour Me Happy Harlequin!

I've crocheted up my Harlequin Blanket pattern in a new colour scheme... what do you 
think? This colour combination makes me feel all at once warm and cosy and happy :)

It's now in my Etsy store :)

Birthday portraits

Long time no see! Unfortunately, I've been swamped with the day job but I have made 
some time to start a new little ritual... birthday portraits to document the last fleeting 
years of childhood. My eldest has already left the nest and it's made me realise I need 
to capture time with them while I can and treasure where we are now. 

These photos were taken exactly one year apart, and I'm amazed at the difference one 
year can make. 

Also, now that photo albums seem to be a thing of the past, it's a small way of keeping
a curated record of sorts I think :) Do you still keep a photo album? How do you document 
the years?

New Harlequin Pattern

I've released a new crochet pattern in my Etsy store – my version of the fresh + bold 
Harlequin design :) With loads of instructions, both pictorial and written, it's an easy 
pattern that even beginners can use to create their own blanket.

It's the perfect time to get in early and start on your very own Harlequin blanket in time for 
the Winter! 

You can find my Harlequin pattern here :)
