It's been a while..

The sun is
new each day.

Oops, this week just slipped by while I wasn't looking! As a matter
of fact I am glad this week is over as a couple of
not nice things happened. But each day
is a new day and I look forward not backwards.

There has been a fair bit of rain happening and I'm glad for our farmers that the
rain is here. It has been great weather for burning the fire's nice
and toasty in our little cottage. Great knitting weather too! This is what I've been
up to.....

.I decided to make myself a scarf out of this wool that Heather gave me. It is so soft and nice to knit with, I was sad to come to the end of the project, so I started knitting something else straightaway.
I was snippy with myself when I didn't work out the
amount of wool needed for this cute little short sleeved cardigan
I started to knit...

Once I got this fair I looked at the remaing wool and knew there would not be
enough. I don't ususally make that blunder but I did
this time. So this is where I stopped with it.
I will dig through my stash in a quest to find the right
amount of wool in a nice colour and make this
cardigan. It is cute.

As I was annoyed with the blunder I thought to myself.....well why not start knitting for
Guardian Angel, that will start soon, may as well get a head start on it.

I don't know where in the world the clothes will go yet this year
but last year the clothes stayed in Australia to help the people who lost
everything in the bushfires in the east of Australia.

Today I slept in until 8am!!! I'm a 5am - 5.30am girl, so 8am was a big sleepin for me.
I fed the chooks and guinea pig, had breaky, did the dishes and then
Cory and I went on a venture to the shops. The boys just love On The Buses TV series
and had a look around for any of those DVD's..unsuccessful but will keep looking.
Cruised around, Cory is checking out the price of an I-touch and then we
went food shopping. It is best I never turn my back on the trolley
or let Cory take control of it, as somehow some other food
finds its way into the trolley.

Cory's friend Corey has come over for a sleepover, so that gave me some time to sew.

Now there is not pattern to this, I just made six petals and a centre to fit and cut out
foam and put it inside. The pieces aren't sewn together yet, as I have to top stitch the petals
and the centre piece and then join it all together.
I thought a bright and big flower for the library would like nice hanging from the wall.
When I finish it I will take a photo of it in the library to show you how it looks.

I am saying some prayers for Heather as her hubby is not too well. I will beam the prayers her way
and hope the best for Bob.
I'm thinking that some bodies will be starting to get hungry so I better get on with things.
Hope you have a lovely weekend and chat with you soon.
Kind regards, Anita.

Your scarf looks lovely and too bad about the cardigan, the purple is a beautiful colour.

Have you tried JB Hi Fi for "On the buses" dvd? I have a feeling I have seen them there.

Happy Monday.

What is with boys and shopping trolley's? It is great though having a son to carry all the shopping in when you get home! Love your new scarf. Looks like plenty of knitting is happening in your place.
