Tell me where is fancy bred,

Or in the heart or in the head?
-William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice
Good morning to you all. We have a sunny Sunday morning happening here in our part of the world, just the sort of weather to get you in the mood for knitting or sewing. I have finally finished my baby blanket that has taken me forever to make. I loved the pattern of the blanket and enjoyed knitting it to the very end. The edging is done in a delicate lace pattern that was very simple but effective.
Delicate baby blanket
Yesterday I found some material that I'd forgotten all about and thought it would make a nice table cover for one of the book display desks at the library, so I got stuck into some sewing and did just that.
Table cover
I had a walk around the garden yesterday and discovered the front yard is busting with pretty roses. I'm having a bit of trouble settling down from our trip to Italy and seeing how bright and colourful the front yard is has helped settle me down. Italy had so much beauty that everything else is hard to compare it with. Slowly I'll settle.
I have some more photo's from our trip to share.....
Tower of Pisa

 A beautiful gem of a building tucked away in the tiniest back street ever. Could you believe this is hidden away? 

More of beautiful Italy
Well I'm out of here to go and enjoy that lovely weather we are having. Can't wait for next week end to catch up with some of my blogging friends at the craft show in Perth.  For now have a wonderful Sunday and see you soon.
