Happy Father's Day

To the world you are
one man,
to us you are the
world.

Happy Father's Day to all the Father's out there, I hope you are having a glorious day. Here in our neck of the woods the sun is shining (right at this moment anyway) and Pixie thinks he is in heaven. A cup of coffee and a cooked breakfast, he's on top of the world. My male tribe are all up the back yard right now fitting a stereo system into Brandon's car. It's quite funny to see them all buzzing over a new sound system.


I on the other hand have been buzzing about my craft work and what I have managed to finish this week. I have made to cloth dolls and a cushion to use as prizes in our Quiz Night coming up in a couple of weeks time.

I had a little stitchery that I wasn't too sure what to do with so it has become the centre piece of the cushion. I wasn't really wrapped in the cushion as I was making it, however, now that it is completed it isn't half bad.

On the show front, I found a cute little hand puppet set to knit from an old book. The funny thing was that by the time it came to knitting the tongue, the instructions on how to knit the tongue was not listed!!! so I just made my own. The puppets will go to the library after the show, they will be loved there.

And still having fun with knitting, I thought just for something different at the show, I might make a cup with yummy cakes to wet the appetite. I must say, while I was knitting the cup all I wanted was to drink tea.
I have almost finished knitting a baby top for someone special, so I won't show and tell that one until the stork has arrived. Kind regards, Anita.

I have to admit that I am really enjoying the sunshine too. It is so good to feel that warmth.
The knitted puppets are something different and will definitely be a hit with the kids.
I adore your knitted tea cup and all the delicious goodies that go with it. They look fantastic!!
I hope you have a chance to sit with a real cuppa and enjoy the sunshine this weekend.
