A house is no home unless it contains food
And fire for the mind as well as for the body.
-Margaret Fuller, Woman in the nineteenth century.
Good morning all.....It’s really cold!!! Apparently it’s 5 C this morning and all week we’ve had 2 C in the mornings. Oh well it is winter! Lol. This week was a wow of a week craft wise. I’ve been doing.....
I found a super great knitting pattern for a scarf that only took the night to knit up. Click here for the pattern.
I am into knitting cowls at the moment and after seeing many different designs, I decided to make my own design from scraps of pink tones. I cast on 100 stitches in pink 8 ply, using 4mm needles. About 8 rows of moss stitch, then changed colours and went for it. It turned out pretty nice actually and will be worn on Monday morning for work.
Making an owl mobile.....
I finished making the owl mobile that is now happily housed in the library and causing all sorts of funny comments from the kids. I’ve even named a couple of the owls after some rather ‘chatty’ girls.
Some garden inspecting....
This succulent started off as a snippet from someone’s yard. Look at it now!! It has
exploded in size. It really loves were it is situated in the garden.
couldn't help but touch these ruins laying everywhere in the Forum
My next up and coming projects to keep me out of mischief. I’ve got some stitches on the old knitting needles, plugging away at some baby bootees which I will show and tell next time. Today is meant to be a lovely sunny 20C....hopefully some rain will be around the corner somewhere. Our farmers are needing some rain...fingers crossed. Hey, have a terrific weekend gals, I’ll be zipping around blog land to see what everyone is up to.
See you next time.
