It's not about
counting the years....but
making the years count.
My husband and sons have driven off together for a bit of 'mantime'. Oh boy! I thought I would show you what I have been up to the last few days. I have finished making another Mammy doll and she turned out really cute. The material I used was from a shopping spree Heather and I went on several months ago to a farm near Meckering.
Mammy still needs hair and maybe a ripped piece of material to tie on her head and some shoe laces. I'm going to make a couple more dolls in the next few days. During these holidays I have also been given a big bag of wool from one of my lovely friends. It is full of 8 ply mixed colours. I can think of a few good things I can make from this stash.
I had to laugh today, I go out the backyard to find all the boys together huddled around Brandon's car. A new exhaust system is being fitted and they're all excited about that....give me wool any day!
I have attacked some of the 100 weeds that have sprung up in our yard this winter, and millions of nasturtium's are also popping up.
I had myself a visit to the craft shop a couple of days ago and just couldn't resist buying the baby wool. There are a couple more babies about to come into the world soon, so I can knit up a few cardigans for them.
The school my boys attend will be holding a quiz night, and it's been hard work organising everything to make the night a success. This is my first time being involved in a quiz night, but it should be a great night. That has kept me on the trot these holidays. The local businesses have been very supportive and lots of lovely gifts donated.
I have met up with several friends over these holidays and enjoyed ourselves going out to the local cafes around the town. We are off to the city tomorrow for a spot of shopping, lots of craft shops down that way!! Hope you all have a great weekend and take care. Kind regards, Anita.
