If you follow Kate Bruning’s Greedy for Colour blog then you’ll have recognised Stanley straightaway, if not then you’re really in a for a treat. If you scroll through Kate’s posts you’ll see lots more of the cheeky Stanley, his Mum and friends.
So why and how and when did Stanley appear the other side of the world playing his own brand of ‘Where’s Wally?’ Well, last November Kate asked if I would do her a favour sometime and test a pattern from her forthcoming book. What an honour! She sent the pattern recently and I loved crocheting Stanley. I just sewed him up today and what a cheeky face he has! He’s winking isn’t he? Somebody saw him and straight away said “He’s a dude.” He is indeed.
Kate tells me she’s about to send the book to the printers, I can’t wait to read the story and try some more of the patterns. Clever and exciting projects can come out of blogs which begin as chatty crafty diaries of everyday life eh? It’s inspiring.
