Kate East­wood

Just Pootling blog­ger Kate is an English de­signer with a big imag­i­na­tion. She told us: "My idea for bunting came from the idea of fresh sea breezes blow­ing wash­ing on a line or sails on boats and I thought bunting was the per­fect way to cap­ture that feel­ing in some dec­o­ra­tive cro­chet for the home. I used rus­tic rope to hang the bunting on, and some pieces of drift­wood for the hang­ing loops as these re­minded me of col­lect­ing 'trea­sure' as you walk along a beach."

Tanya Eber­hardt

Lit­tle Things Blogged cro­chet de­signer Tanya lives in Greece. She is a self-con­fessed yarn lover and for this month's de­signer chal­lenge, she used the ve balls of Noro yarn to whip up a pretty hang­ing man­dala hoop. When we asked her about the de­sign, she told us: "What in­spired the de­sign were the lovely boho, earthy yarn colours which lled me with a sum­mery wan­der­lust feel­ing!"
