By the sea

I’ve got a new Crayon Chick goodie, baby blankets. It started as a present for a friend and took on a life of it’s own with lovely orders coming in already. And with a couple of weeks of winter still to endure I couldn’t be happier with a job that keeps me on a couch snuggled into a pile of scrummily coloured yarns, with time to let my mind wander.
The Sea
These lovely blues and sea greens have had me thinking of those stormy days at the beach, too rough to swim, perfect for exploring rock pools, beach-combing and eating fish and chips.
Don’t you just love the way colour is so strongly linked to memories and feelings.

Susannah - Wow, that blanket looks heavenly! And I too love how colour is associated with memories….that blue blanket brings back memories of hot Melbourne summer nights, at the beach with so many others enjoying life, soaking up the sun and the sand and the brilliant blue water. Happy Sigh. xx
