Puttering About

It's rainy and gray outside today, so I've been just puttering about the house. Spending way too much time perusing other people's wonderful blogs...but I"m kinda glad I did. I found a site I have not seen before and just fell in love with it!  What a talented lady!  She has a really cool Star-Spangled pinwheel craft you can download, print out and make for the fourth of July.  I wanted to, but I'm out of color ink at the moment...darn it. (Trip to Office Depot needed)  Coz I just have to have several of those pinwheels to decorate my table with. 
Craft Hope: Handmade Crafts for a CauseShe also makes adorable little softie toys that just make you smile to look at. I'm going to have to make one for little J. It's called a Pupkin...a little puppy that is dressed like a little boy. Little J will adore it. He loves puppies and is currently begging for one.  The pattern for it is in this just released book which you can order from Amazon. I'm ordering it today! Can't wait to make stuff from it! 

Also wanted to share this delightful summer photo with you. It  just made me happy to look at it this morning...and I wanted to share the happiness with you! 

Hope you're having a creative and crafty day!  Til next time...
Love and Happiness...♥ Kate~


  1. Hi again Kate!

    Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog the other day. It's been lovely to get some comments straight away! I loved your needlework in your previous post - quite fancy having a go at that but I honestly think my boyfriend would ask me to leave if I start anything else at the moment! I've posted an update by the way - do stop by and check it out!


  2. Hi Kate! For the cushions, I didn't have a pattern of sorts. I just crocheted rounds to fit an inner then crocheted two sides together. Check out this lovely lady's blog she has tutorials for the flowers, the edging and the rounds too! Voila! You will have a cushion made up in no time! Hope this has helped! Have a fab day!
