Time Flies

Whether you're having fun or not it would seem ... it would also seem that it's all work and very little play for this little blogger lately. With some knitting at night, I have finished another cloth in the variegated pink "Giggle" ... another for the Christmas gift box.


1 small tick for OPAM, CTTY and 1XmasItem.  The crochet rug is also finished ... just need to weave in all those ends and then add tassels.

One stitch at a time.     >^..^<

OPAM Finish

I do have a small finish to share for April's OPAM ... a knitted jar cover using up some leftover wool.


Still recovering a fortnight later after the yukky throat etc hit ... Dr said "rest" so I've been sitting crocheting :o)

Just a Little Brag Post

Yesterday was our local show and while I spend the day helping out in the office, it's always nice to have a couple of entries in the pavilion ... the more the merrier and we always have an excellent display of flowers, cooking, craft and much more for our little show.

I was lucky enough to catch the judges eye with these two entries.

Needlework Section

Photography Section

I'm afraid there hasn't been a lot of time for anything else much ... I did start another new project, crochet this time (just can't stay focused for long) ... and have been adding a couple of rows each night. It was a kit using 3 strands of no. 8 wool and a 15 mm hook.



The cool change in the weather has been nice but I'm not liking the yukky throat, tickly cough and hot eyes this morning ... I'm off to crochet some more ... the rug is big enough now to keep my knees warm while I work.

Happy Sunday

FNWF Results

Chris Hemsworth kept me company last night while I knitted and stitched with friends for FNWF. Snow White is a lucky lass indeed ;o)

First I was able to finish knitting this so soft cloth in 'Giggle' ... one for the Christmas Gift Box. Love how the variegate has formed a crisscross pattern.


Next onto this Needle Case stitchery which will also be one for the Gift Box.



While Mum was visiting she trialed a pattern from BH&G for a jar cosy.


Thinking some of these would be nice for little gifts and I have plenty of jars.

Thanks Cheryll for hosting another fab Friday ... looking forward to seeing who else was busy last night.

Happy Weekend

Another Week Down and FNWF

Hello April ... do you know it's supposed to be Autumn? Where's the cooler weather!

You'll find me tonight under the fan, watching a little TV,  knitting and perhaps an embroidery stitch or two for a change.  Pop over HERE if you haven't signed up yet for ...



Another busy week with family visiting to help with the muster.  Just love spending time with this little monkey ... who just loves being in the outdoors.



While enjoying some outdoor time with camera in hand I snapped this beauty.



Hoping next week will be a little slower and I will find some time to go blog visiting and just maybe do a little sewing ... who knows?  For now I'm off to reheat leftovers for dinner and settle in for a bit of sewing/knitting With Friends on this Friday Night.

Cherished Memories

Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.


Forever in our memories
Our beautiful grandma, great grandma
and great great grandma


When someone you love becomes a memory,
the memory becomes a treasure.

Forever In Our Hearts

Those we love remain with us
for love itself lives on,
and cherished memories never fade
because a loved one is gone.

Those we love can never be
more than a thought apart,
For as long as there is memory
they will live on in our hearts.


Forever and always
Our dearly loved mother, mother-in-law,
 grandma and great grandma.

FNWF - Mudcake or Brownies?

Oh the dilemma! First I cooked brownies, followed by a choc mud cake before popping a lasagna in the oven now that the weather had cooled down enough to even consider turning the oven on.

Brownies and a milo ....


Then back to business ... putting the final stitches into this sweet pattern.


Thank you Cheryll for another lovely Friday Night with Friends xx

After all that beautiful rain and some amazing rainfall totals in neighbouring areas, all that water has to go somewhere. Taking most things in it's path.


This road is the one I travel on to get to work...once the river is high enough to spill over the dam spillway, water backs up the creeks.


If it's flooded ... forget it!

This weather also plays havoc with my internet. Just to post took ages so not much blog hopping happening ... most times I get "error loading" and then nothing happens.
