I don’t quite know what it is…

oh Cath.  Cath Kidston!

…but combine the general cuteness of all things Cath Kidston--

…the fabric, the yarn…

@ Quietly Stitching: Cath Kidston inspired blanket

…the florals…

…all the household goodies…

colorful cottage style by Cath Kidston

…and I’m a complete goner!

Then, you combine all that with needlework--

Cath Kidston Stitch! by Cath Kidston,

…and I’m in absolute heaven!

Couldn’t help but snatch up this fabulous needlework book and get to work!


Tied up in all the rest of my obsessions above noted, I love England.  All of it.  And I really love the design of the Union Jack.  I’m so very grateful that I’m an American girl through and through—but a couple hundred years ago, this was the flag of my people (without the adorable flowers, of course!).  And it has always had a place in my heart, as well…


…so I chose this beauty for my first project.

And then, I found I just couldn’t stop!


Happily, included in the book was a smaller version.  In a brighter color scheme.  What’s a girl to do?!


Just the feel of the lovely wool yarn ask I worked with my hands was a joy—now to just figure out what these sweet canvas pieces will be…..


…I’m quite sure they’ll let me know!

See you soon!
