Kia ora and welcome. I am Caroline Larnach,  a lover of all things creative, from Auckland, New Zealand. I am a primary/elementary school teacher by profession, but these days I am at home raising our beautiful baby Amy.

My siblings and I grew up in a creative home; we had a ‘making cupboard’ stuffed with resources to encourage creative adventure and I was taught to sew by my mother, the talented artist Katy Sanson.

I learned needlework at the knees of my grandmothers, one talented in cross-stitch and tapestry and the other adept at free-form. From those beginnings, I developed an illustrative embroidery style that blends traditional methods with an aesthetic inspired by the worlds of tattoo and street-art.

My parter, the handsome KT, and I make things for our home together too, combining forces to design simple wooden furniture and accessories.

This blog is a fusion of my interests in craft, gardening, cooking, DIY, sewing and creativity. You’ll also find glimpses of my home and snapshots of favourite corners, as I take you on my creative journey.

Welcome to my world.
