Clean out

Very little is needed
to make a happy life.
- Marcus Aurelius

I have been having a bit of a clean out of my cupboards, and while doing that, I found some cross stitch I had made for a class room display when Cory was in year 6.

I found the designs in a cross stitch book at the library and some of the patterns were stunning. There is a huge design of King Tut, and all sorts of other things egyptian.


Oops! There's those fingers again. I'm going to have to hide them.

All of the material were just odds and ends, and really was very handy to have them laying around. I enjoyed doing the cross stitch pieces and the kids at school really loved them too. The hangings went on display in the classroom along side the books the teacher had. Cory was very proud too. Nothing is too much for my children.

A friend of ours gave me this tiny cutting from his garden. Some sort of succulent and just look at it. It has really grown into a huge thing, sorry I'm not sure what sort it is. I love the red lining on the end of each section. Since crafting has invaded my life, my knowledge of plant names has just dwindled to zero.

Had to share this stunning rainbow with you all. We had a down pour a couple of weeks back and Cory took a photo of this stunning rainbow. I love rainbows, they are special.

Next posting I have some creations I have been wildly hacking away at, so I will show and tell. Oh I have just finished my book 'Ma, It's a cold aul night an I'm looking for a bed' by Martha Long. Want a good read, get it from your library. It is book number three, so get 'Ma, he sold me for a few cigarettes' first. 

Better take off, more washing to hang out, get tea started because my three petals will be getting hungry soon and then some crafting. Hope you all have a great night. Take care. Kind regards, Anita.
