My wonderful life

My own mind
is my own church.
Thomas Paine

A friend gave me some advice about how to get rid of aphids. All I have to do is wait for the ladybirds to come......and they have.

There are so many ladybirds, I can't count them all. I do know they are having a wonderful picnic though. This year I don't know where the time went, but I forgot to cut back my rose bushes. I can't believe how the roses have bloomed this year. What is that? The roses have bloomed in bunches this year and the weight on the flowers are pulling down on the branches. They have actually covered over some of my other native bushes.

On the craft scene, a lot of knitting has been done around here and also last weekend I found one of the best editions of Handmade ever. I rather like Handmade and in this edition there are so many projects that I want to make. All nice Christmassy ideas. Here I have made Mr. Pudding.

I happened to have some brown velvety material in the cupboard along with leftover wadding. The wadding has been used to make the custard on his head and red felt for the berries. This will be a great addition to my Christmas display.

We are having one of those warm days today and this morning I managed to do some weeding. I am trying to get as much weeding done before there are any chances of snakes hiding in the bushes. That time of year I'm afraid. Apparently there is some forecast of rain so I'm not sure what the end of the day will bring.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend and see you soon. Kind regards, Anita.

What a delight those lady bugs are. They arrive when needed, feed themselves and don't ask for payment! Can't complain about that!
I can't tell you anything about roses. No Knowledge in that area at all!
Love your pudding, though. I have to agree that it is a very good issue of the mag this time. I have cut out the pattern for Michelle's little felt stockings - the ones on the front cover.
Good luck with the weeding.
