Colour all the way ...

Ooooh - I have so many exciting little projects to show you but
I just have to be patient for a little bit longer ....
I cannot spill the beans just yet.
 It's safe to say though that there has been colour involved -
I know !
Quite unlike me with my greys and taupe's,
but I am loving it.
It's really very true that it's quite invigorating to step outside of your
little box every now and again.

 I just have to show you this little bag of loveliness though -
I am quite head over heels with these gorgeous little pompoms.
I will come back to these and explain all, I promise !

Yup, more colours -
both pastels ...

... and brights.
But one thing I can definitely tell you about is what I am working on right this very minute .
Having got a little stuck making Spring flowers
I discovered a really sweet  pattern over at Little Woollie and suddenly an idea sprung up ...
a little Spring blossom tree for Easter.

I'm not completely sure that it will work out as beautifully as it looks in  my head
 but I'm certainly going to give it a good try.


  1. All very exciting indeed!! I look forward to hearing more as and when you can share! xx

  2. Gorgeous little pastel flowers. Don't worry, I am absolutely certain it will all be beautiful, you have such a gift for this stuff. Love the white tulips. I'm intrigued to see what else you are working on. I shall try to be patient! Have a good week Kate. CJ xx

  10. I haven't seen anybody post any picture of white tulips yet. They are beautiful! Sometimes white just can't be beat, especially if you're going to elegance. Love the squiggly pom-poms. Can't wait to hear what they're all about. I still love my pom-poms hanging on our fireplace I copied from your blog. :)
