More Books and more crafting

 Happiness consists not in having much,
but in being content with little.

I have been for yet another visit to the library to collect books I have requested in. I have been surprised at how many sweet projects I have discovered in some of these books.

Oh my miniature tea set is in the way. My girlfriend Heather bought those for me, she does know my weaknesses, and tea sets are one of them. The pink craft book has some great ideas in it. There is a pattern to make a card to give at Christmas time and plenty of other things to make that I haven't seen before. The Girl mechanic is actually a Popular Mechanics edition, can you believe that! It is very interesting and has a bit of everything in it: woodwork, paper craft, beads for paper necklaces etc.

These little treasures were bought for me as a gift from my lovely sister-in-law Lee. She so precious and much loved by me. Not just because she selects lovely gifts for me and she is a gem of a person.

See this funny little turns into.....

On one of Heather's trips to the eastern side of Australia, she returned wielding this lovely box. It was a gift for me and when I opened it I thought it had fallen to pieces. Heather assured me that it had not. It is like one of those whatnots. You can store beads, cotton, thread anything you need to contain while you're crafting away.

My photo came out a bit bright but the colour of this wool is fantastic. I purchased the wool in town at one of the local craft shops and it is a dream to knit with and stunning colours. This is one of the last beanies on the go and will be donated to the local hospital here in town.

Now the next photo is a bit naughty, so if you think you might get a scare don't go any further. I pulled this out of a bag of carrots from the shops. I got a fright when I first saw it but I had to share with you. Have you ever seen anything like it?

Isn't this really suspicious. No it is not rigged and I certainly did not grow that thing. Truly I found it in a bag. On that weird and wonderful note I had better choof off and get tea started, we're having carrots tonight. lol Until next time take care. Kind regards, Anita.

Thank you for your comments. After seeing the carrot I don't think I would even eat it. It has got to be tough.
