I have something lovely to share with you all today, something I have been anticipating with delight ever since I first heard about this fabulous project.
I'm sure you all know the amazing crochet whizz Kate Bruning from the blog Greedy for Colour, her wonderful crochet creations have been putting a smile on my face for ages.
I always love to see what Kate is working on, it is sure to be something original, whimsical and inspiring.
Well, Kate has just released her latest book "Let's Go Camping" full of truly fabulous patterns for mini world adventures.
The publishers sent me a copy to look at and share with you, and I have to say it is my favourite crochet book already!
There are patterns for mini teepees, ice cream trucks, lake houses, boats, long boats, mountains, trees, and of course Kate's famous retro caravan complete with all the gorgeous accessories that you would imagine would go with each set. And that is just the tip of the iceberg. There are so many cute things to make in this book , that I really don't know where I will start!
I'm thinking I will make a lake mat and slowly fill it with little boats and flowery islands surrounded by a lush forest of trees and a camping ground around the edge with a caravan and colourful teepees.
And that's just for starters! :)
The styling and photographs and are truly beautiful and showcase the magic and detail of the worlds Kate has created.
............the lake house set, so cute!......
.......love the mini bunting and stripy teepee! .....
......This river scene is just so darn cute!! And the roof comes off and there is a little bed and furniture inside, so clever! I love all the little elements that Kate has included in each different set, so detailed!
Aren't the hydrangea pots fabulous! I am definitely making some of these, I think they would look gorgeous hanging from my Christmas tree too!
I feel so glad that Kate has made this book and written all these wonderful patterns down in one place, her imagination is so fertile and I just love the scenes she creates. I can't recommend this book highly enough, it is completely inspiring and appeals to me on so many levels, it is playful, whimsical, original, colourful and super cute! Thank you so much for all your amazing hard work Kate, it has truly paid off with this adorable collection!
So, after all that gushing, I am happy to say I am having a giveaway!
