A moment of weakness


Hello all,
Last Thursday I was overcome by a moment of weakness when Cath Kidston announced a special offer day, it would have been rude to not have a little peek , there's no harm in looking is there ?
I couldn't help but click " BUY " when I saw these enamel tin mugs, perfect for camping and they match perfectly with my picnic bag.


I have never been so excited about mugs before, sad I know !

I'm hoping to make a start on some bunting this weekend, to adorn my tent and then my log cabin. I have decided to use colours from the CK mug that the children bought me for Christmas, such pretty colours.




I can't wait to get started, just need to make a decision on what pattern to use. I am torn between the wonderful bunting by Bunny mummy or the equally gorgeous pattern by Crochet with Raymond . Decisions, decisions....

As well as spending far too much time on the Internet shopping for tin mugs, I have been working on some boys booties. I had been asked to make some booties similar to my Mary Janes but for a boy and came up with these....



I've also made a little newborn hat using front post double crochet stitch, as I love the way it looks.





I'll leave with you a few piccies of Dudley who has had his first big boy hair cut this week.





Speak soon xx

Don't you just love CK? I bought my Mum another bag last week for her birthday and was rather displeased to spot the discount day happening two days later - how typical!!

Crochet bunting is one of the things on my "To Do" list....

Those mugs are so bright and cheery and yes they do match your picnic bag beautifully.
Making crochet bunting is so much fun and the colours you have chosen are lovely.
The boy booties are cute and as for those baby hats, squeal, how cute are they?!!!
Dudley looks adorable, how I would love to give him a big cuddle.
Enjoy your Easter.

Well, if they match your hamper that well, how could you nót buy them! Whenever I see those lovely hats, I keep thinking... I wonder how to make them for grown ups ;-) I am a hat person afterall.
Happy Easter,
Esther.

The mugs are loverrly. I have a 'thing' about mugs, got loads of them, still always drink out the same one though!! Those boottees are very nice as is the newborn hat. I wish I could crochet!

Those are a lovely couple of mugs, anything polka dot get's my vote. Looking forward to seeing your bunting - gorgeous colours x

I love the new makes.
Use both patterns one for the tent and one for the cabin!
I didn't get to taste the bread the greedy lot who came over ate it all. . .

Hi Jacey! Those polka dot cups are so cute and they match your bag perfectly. What fun! That Dudley is just absolutely adorable. And the booties and cap are precious for the little ones. Have fun making bunting for your crafting space. Best wishes and blessings, Tammy

I don't blame you, I love cath kidston! My new mug arrived during the week. ^_^ I love your dog loads and those crochet hats are perfect!

Love those CK goodies! Even my 12 year old daughter has got into CK and Im also responsible for getting my bestest friend's daughter into it as well by getting her a CK book for her birthday!!! Mind you, the best friend also feeds my habit, she bought me a pair of CK mugs!! So she only has herself to blame...

Jacey, I don't blame you choosing such gorgeos mugs, I get excited about such things too xox Love the idea of CK inspired bunting, pink and green being my favourite always. I sewed some bunng for our camping trips but i think I may well be inspired to crochet some up this year xox

The Vintage Kitten said...

Ooh your mugs are gorgeous. Its quite normal and not odd at all to get excited over mugs......... I do, LOL! X

Carina said...

I love those mugs. I bought one last year and it has been imported now!!! Sitting on my desk so that I can see it everyday.

Those red tin dotted mugs are just gorgeous!!!!

And the booties are adorable.

Enjoy making your bunting. I'm off to do some hooky business myself.

Not quite sure how I got here, but sure am glad I did. What beautiful work you have. I'm a new follower for sure. Off to have a better look around.

Susanne said...

Jacey I think I enjoyed every photo you posted. The polka dot cups and bag are so cute, the colors for your bunting are perfect choices and the little flowered hat and the booties are so sweet...and when I scrolled down to Dudley I had to laugh out loud at his adorable face and his big boy haircut. Who couldn't love that dust mop!!

Sconch Textiles said...

I am also a new follower - and loving reading over your posts! I have to say, I never really 'got' CK - but then at Christmas we were given 2 little CK mugs - and now I'm hooked! Very excited to hear from my mother in law that there is a CK outlet store near her (Cambridge)!!

I just happened upon your blog this morning and have been having an enjoyable look through your posts. I'm in love with these baby booties and was hitting "older post" a lot, hoping to find a pattern you might have shared. I saw your puppy in a different post, but in this post you offered his name. That stopped me dead in my tracks! I have a Dudley also! But he's an English Cream Retriever and MUCH larger than your adorable baby! Dudley is NOT a common name...how fun to see another! And those polka dot mugs...toooooo cute! I love polka dots! Have you shared your bootie pattern anyplace? If not, are you willing to share? I love the look of the FPDC effect! Hugs, Annette
