Missing in action.


Very little is needed
to make a happy life.
        Marcus Aurelius

Hello everyone!! No I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth, here I am. Thanks to all my blogging friends who sent me emails checking on my whereabouts. It’s all good, just a really busy couple of weeks. Millions of meetings, reports to write and playing catch up. I am now back to the safety zone of the sewing shed. Here is what is happening today...

My Craft Work banner for the agricultural show in the section I take care of.......
Just scrappy bits of materials stitched together.
My show entries all boxed up waiting to go.....
 
Love my knitted doll? She’s from Jean Greenhowe’s
 
collection. Fun to knit up and very cute.
A little baby sleeping sign, now that there are babies in the pipeline, this has a home already.


I have started to crochet a baby blanket using blue, pink and white colours, in 8 ply yarn. I will make as many squares as I can to make as many blankets as I can.

More nieces and nephews, more nieces and nephews!!!!

More little beaded dolls on the way.

I hope you all have had a fantastic week and I can’t wait to visit you all in blog land.

Cheers, Anita.

You have lots of things for the show. I just love that knitted doll. I just bought a Belinda Jane pattern from
http://www.etsy.com/shop/dollytime. I loved her cardigan. Good luck in the show. Glad you are back :)

Report writing is always a super busy time. Glad you are at the end of it and back to sewing.
Your sign for the show looks great and good luck with all your entries.
Love the baby sleeping sign and of course there had to be some knitting or crocheting in there, too.

I can't believe how busy you've been, yet still made so much! Look at those boxes of show entries! I learnt to knit as a child and had a Jene Greenhowe book, I loved it and now have a few, even though I rarely knit!
