mollie makes & annie

recently my friend annie watts and i did a fun photo shoot for mollie makes magazine. here we are spread out on a beekeeper’s quilt.  (the quilt in the photo was actually a GIFT from lots of lovely owlies around the world!  i was glad to be able to get it on some real display in such a lovely magazine.  i know some folks have spotted their own cute puff!  :)our friend katy-jane took our photos & we had such fun, ive posted some of the cutting room floor ones. we hula-hooped like wild things! we used “water hoops”.  have you ever tried those? they have water in them to weigh them down… so when you hoop its LOADS easier.  no wonder i could never hoop before!   i love you water hoop.  you are so so rad. i’ve been practicing the vortex trick where it spirals up over your head and then back down.  yes i often get smacked in the face but its fun to try.  so, in other news… ive have had a very BUSY summer so far.  i’ve just returned from a wee trip to england to do some singing and recording.  then somehow we planned a fairly impromptu trip to iceland!!!! there i met up with some other designers and we took photos near the ocean and climbed magic rocks. LOTS more details and photos to follow on that i promise.  except for the ones where we swam in the blue lagoon. i promise swimsuit photos will never surface! SO if’n you wanna take a peek at mollie makes click here to subscribe.  ipad version here. and if you wanna meet my friend annie i highly recommend it!  you can see her designs on raverly here.  if you dont know her already youll probably freak out over her cute stuff!!!

    Love your blog, love your patterns….and I loved swimming in the Blue Lagoon in Iceland, too. So much that you can do with that “mud!” I’d love to try the beekeeper’s quilt. It looks quite intriguing. I’ve found a new knitting blog!

    so glad to find your blog! I love your patterns, especially the bee keepers quilt, I remember you doing an interview about this when you first published the design and the excitement in you was noticiable and very infectious! I’ve just read the interview with Liat of KnitFreedom too – lovely! x

  17. Renna says:

    I just read your very interesting interview with Liat at KnitFreedom. I’m always amazed at someone who possesses ‘many’ talents. I clicked the link Liat gave to preview your music, and found your voice and gentle sound quite beautiful. I’m happy to discover your knitwear designs. I love the whimsy that makes them stand out. I see the ‘catching butterflies’ in my future.😉

  18. Jane says:

    I’ve visited your blog several times ( I already get owls, thank you!) and I just noticed the owl background on the web page. Today I came through Liat’s link from Knit Freedom. Besides everything else, I love the way you decorated your nest – looks like a lovely place to live!
