Lovely little bernie...:-*
Ur gal's knitting is sooo neat....god bless her...she ia already blessed with such a creative mom to encourage n support her in her arty learning...


That Little Lady of yours is quite impressive! Her enthusiasm is inspiring, I'm sure, but also her knitting is splendid, especially for a beginner!! Bernie is darling. My Dad's name was Bernie, and he was dearly loved, as I am sure Little Bernie is, too. xo

I love the knitting! What a great job she did. Do you knit, too?


Well done little lady, your owl is perfect.

I'm looking forward to seeing your new bag with the beautiful stripey yarn mummy bought you.

Good luck at school this year!


this little owl is so cute, your daughter has very good taste in crafts, i think we can see where it comes from ;) good luck to her!


That rainbow yarn is gorgeous! I keep picking it up and stroking it every time I'm in John Lewis but I can never quite justify buying myself any. She is one lucky little Lady. And very clever too - what a lovely owl! Clever girl!

How could we not fall in love with your sexy new hair-do, your bubbly personaliy, your sharing your wonderful life with us. Not to mention your creative and colorful decorated and whimzy creations. Now little lady is fallowin in your footsteps. My.......so amazed with you and all the love you give.
So here I am, so far across the pond in Lovely Oregon USA, crocheting along to keep myself from falling down the rabbit hole, because hearing how you keep your smile and your love of life going, it just has to do some with all those wonderfully colorful yarns.
Thank you oh so much for allowing us peaks into your life. You are special and yummy and some kind of wonderful.

I'm impressed by your daughters knitting; it is so even; she should be proud of her work. I was only wondering the other day if your little people do any of these crafts and if so hope they will carry on these crafts . . . it is so important that these crafts do survive for many moons to come. My daughter (21) has done a little basic knitting in her life but it is not very even and it she has done so in fits and starts and as a result she has unfinished projects in her room - but then I have too! One day .......... hope she continues to enjoy and produce fine work.


I just discovered your blog and *love* it!!! Beautiful crochet, beautiful countryside, beautiful photography. You are making me excited about crocheting again (I had dropped it in favor of kntting) and I actually purchased 17 yarn colors last night to make a Granny Stripe Blanket. :-)


I love the photos of your home and all the colourful decorations you've made but I've often wondered what your husband thought when he came home to a new hooky project.....go on, make a HUGE sunflower and surprise him! ;-)


Wow, every time I read your posts, I think what a talented, smart woman you are. And that you really should be paid for everything you share. Your writings, crocheting, photography -- all of it is just amazing. thank you for sharing !!


Thank you so much for your blogs - they are so inspiring. Thank you for letting us into your wonderful creative life.


Hello hello! I've been reading your blog for a couple of months now, but haven't commented 'til now. Little Lady impresses me with her knack for knitting. My only attempt at it resulted in needles, thread and instructions being tossed angrily across the room. I'll stick with crochet, thankyouverymuch! So, Little Lady, my hat is off to you!

Bernie is wonderful! You did a great job Little Lady! I love the yarn that you selected for your stash. Beautiful colors. Can't wait to see your next project. You are very talented as is your Mum!


I love the fact that your little one is following in her mother's footsteps!!! And the yarn is very similar to what I've seen you post!! What a great outlet for her and I LOVE that she's starting her own little stash!! LOL

Well done little lady - lovely owl. Aaaand that knitting exhibition ooooh how lovely. I would soo have enjoyed it. I knit fruit, veg, cakes, etc so just up my street - I'll have to keep going because the more there are they better they look. Don't know about a sunflower though it would need to be tall!

I've been really inspired by your site, I have made a few bits and always follow your blog.

Do you have anywhere I can upload a couple of pics of things you've inspired me to make?? xxx


Your daughter did an amazing job. I am teaching my daughter to crochet as I cannot knit, yet. I am working on it. I just love your blog you are an inspiration when I feel like not working on my WIPS, but then I see what your doing and my mojo is back , Thanxs ever so much and keep up the great work. Also if you could design a crochet pattern of the giant sunflowers, I would buy it in a heartbeat. Sunflowers are one of my favorite flowers and I have an empty corner that is begging for some color. Thanx again and best wishes.


So I'm going to gush a little. I love your blog. I love how you share your life, thoughts and creativity. You inspire me to keep on fitting in my little projects when it seems like I have too many other things to do. Just wanted to say thanks.


And thank you, my dears!That is Little Lady and Lucy!
Attic24 help me to learn English (yes indeed),a beautiful,vivid,real English and inspire me to give value to all the little things day by day...
Your owl, Little Lady is very,very pretty. I love it! I look forward to your next projects!

The owl is so adorable! She did a very good job!


So cute!!


Bernie is beautiful. Great work, Little lady.


I wish we had captured the first crafting that my sister and I did as we watched Saturday morning cartoons at 7 and 8 years old. I hope she knows how much we love to watch her grow.
