Hump day Wednesday

Who dreamed that beauty
Passes like a dream?

-William Butler Yeats.
Hello! I can’t believe I have managed to slide in a mid week post, but I’ve done it!! Lol. The boys have gone out shooting so I thought I would show you what I’ve been up to the last few days. I made this cute little pink top, though I’ve changed the front  bands and did garter stitch instead of what the pattern instructed. Click here for the pattern.
Sweet pink top.
A few crocheted blocks to help use up my scraps of yarn.
Some crochet blocks
These will become more of those little TV blankets I was making for the library.
This news will shock everyone.......I have a mobile phone!!! I know I sound like I’m from the stone age days but yes, I have a phone. I have been terrorizing one of my work mates with text messages and I think she loves it.
I am also working on a baby jacket but I will show it when I have finished knitting it...which won’t be too long in the waiting.
A few more beautiful pictures of lovely Italy.
The Colosseum from inside.
Only a small walk away from our Hotel
Handy for tight parking!

Well gals, I am off to hang out in the sewing shed for a while until it is time to cook tea. Rissoles tonight, with mashed potato, gravy and vegetables.  Yum. Not long until the weekend.
Cheers, Anita.

I love that little top you knitted. Must remember where I saw it when I want to make it.
I do not have a mobile phone and neither does my eldest son. We are the only 2 in the family. I think it may drive his siblings and his wife crazy but he refuses to get one. I don't need one since no one needs to know where I am 24/7, LOL. They can email me.

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww the little top is so cute - so perfect for a wee girly :) I have a cellphone but only because our local bus system runs on an "on demand" system during parts of the day, and it's the only way to get the bus. I don't want to be available 24/7 - like Dolores, they can email me, lol!
