St Patrick’s Day Celebrations

I hope you all have a great St. Patrick’s Day and that you’ve got something fun planned later that involves at least one pint of Guinness! Franklyn the Frog has started his celebrations already…


Heaven knows what state he’s likely to be in by the time I finish work and get to join him in the garden!

 Here’s Franklyn with his cousin Fernando doing a bit of sun basking earlier today.


Though I have to say that being tropical forest frogs (Fernando is a Red Eyed Tree Frog and Franklyn is an Australian Green Tree Frog) they have certainly been enjoying the record levels of rain during their vacation to the UK. They never got used to the icy temperatures though and couldn’t wait to get out and warm up their cold blood with a bit of sun after all those gray skies. Hopefully the sunshine and mild temperatures we’ve been having in recent days are going to last a bit longer yet (please!). I keep eyeing the sunny patches of my garden enviously and hoping I’ll get to enjoy some sunshiny St. Patrick’s day shenanigans with my little green friends later on. But if the weather takes a turn for the worst I might take them to the pub instead, if Franklyn is still sober enough to hop that is!!

Enjoy your celebrations!


Karl and Karla Koala

Well it’s been a busy few days trying to tie up the loose ends of three new patterns. I keep saying that once I clear the backlog of half finished projects I am going to make myself concentrate on just one design at a time. But I can’t seem to stick to that so, I guess I’ll just have to manage ducking and diving, flexing the multi-tasking part of my brain until it aches!

It’s always immensely satisfying to finish a pattern completely, list it in my various shops and strike it off my ever growing ‘to do’ list. So I’m feeling happy today that, despite a few color disasters (how can you go wrong with grey, you ask? Well, OK, since you asked – first time too dark, the eyes and nose didn’t show up well enough, second time too mottled, the flecked yarn I chose seemed fine in real life but when photographed the poor koala ended up looking like it  had a nasty rash. Third time lucky you say? Oh no, I ran out of matching yarn on that attempt!   But all that’s behind me now, and I’m finally happy to introduce them to you. So at last, and without further ado, (drum roll, please)…….Karl and Karla Koala!


These two baby Koalas are quite alike as peas in a pod. It’s one pattern from which you can make a girl or a boy just by changing the color and position of the bow.
As Koalas are famous for being such picky eaters I thought it would be wise to make sure the pattern includes instructions to make their all time favorite eucalyptus leaves.


Mmmm, yummy eucalyptus leaves, wouldn’t be the same without a lovely pot of tea to wash them down with!


Just remember not to get your Koala wet, they turn from cute to terrifying in seconds!
