My creative space.

In my creative space today I am crocheting another Kokeshi doll. I'd love to know the secret to making them seem cute, mine seem to look cross.

Bren is pouring me love heart lattes. Behind my coffee you can see the artwork we are working on for the postcard designs we will release to announce the January opening of our farm shop.

The girls are doing sticker mosaics. Its pretty crappy being sick and having three kids at home at the same time. But it does make life a lot easier when I remember some of their birthday prezzies I had hidden away for times like these.

I am crocheting more soap savers.

And I have a bit of a baby shoe production line going on.

  5. I can't believe you can do all that while everyone is sick! You are amazing. Those little shoesies are so sweet and I like your crocheted dolls, even if they do look a little cranky. Maybe they have reason to be..who knows what goes on in the mind of a doll. Can't wait to see the postcards. Lovely to see you & Bren in Thaw too xo

  6. Kate those baby shoes are divine, I love them! I'm not expert in koshi facial expression, but I think it has to do with the angle of the eyes - if they are a line and they angle in a bit like a 'V' they tend to look more cross. Try changing the angle of the eyes and see what happens. Hope you feel better soon!

  24. Wow Kate talk about busy! But luckily you've had the heart shaped, love filled coffee's to keep you going ;)

    Would love to know more about the soap savers ... which brings me to what I was crocheting whilst OS .. kinda face cloths I guess ... except they seem very loose ... perhaps should have done trebles instead of doubles?

  29. I was delighted to hear you mention you've been working on baby shoes, as I've been up to the exact same thing! Love yours - particulary with vintage elements - nice to know someone else loves re-using this stuff as much as me. Everything here is lovely. x

Thanks so much for stopping by...

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the way....so I'll apologise now, just in case.
