There is no fireside
like your own fireside.
-Irish proverb

Hello, I hope those who celebrate Christmas had a wonderful time. We had a fantastic Christmas, most of the time hanging out in the pool. It was 44C in our parts, but having a pool is top fun. I have stitching together some left over squares to make myself a table topper for a small desk in the library. It measures 20 inches x 40 inches and will make a nice display with the books.
I have knitted a small bird from leftover yarns and it is a pattern I have loosely copied from the net. I decided to use buttons for the eyes and stitch on the wings.
Another knitted bird that can be knitted using just normal yarn or you can knit it in a furry yarn. I tried the furry yarn as I have a tonne of it, but it was tricky sewing on the eyes and beak. Still a good result. Click here for the pattern.
More knitting than sewing going on around here, but while it is so hot outside I may as well get some knitting done under the air conditioner. I could do some housework, but lets not go there. lol. I am knitting a few extra baby garments to sell, so I have started with a cute white beanie. It fits a 3-6 month old and is very soft.
The tribe has come back home so it looks like lunch is on the cards. Wherever you are I hope you are having a great time.
Cheers, Anita.

I am back from holiday and catching up on all your news! Looks like you are keeping extra busy. With all your hot days it must be hard to spend time in your craft shed. We sure are grateful for our air-conditioner, too. Keep having a great holiday break!
