I'm a wicked girl!!


All is change: all yields
its place and goes.
-Euripides

Buon giorno to you all! We are enjoying a lovely long weekend here in my part of the world and it is the start of the school holidays. I have been up to mischief again, how unlike me! Sometime ago I made a replica doll of our local high school Principal (who has a fantastic sense of humour and we love to terrorize him), now I have made a new jacket for the “John” doll. Many thanks to his lovely wife Jane for supplying the material (lol) and to Marilyn for handing me the parcel with the material in it!!! Do you love his new coat?

The wool dangling down is from where we tried to hang the doll once!!! oops!


How cute is he in his jacket?

I am really looking forward to plodding around the garden these holidays, here’s some super fab pics of the garden.....
Geraldton wax


Geraniums & stock

During the week I have found time for more knitting too... If you are interested in making any of these patterns I have linked them in previous posts, so you can go back and get the patterns from there. Some of the patterns are done in 8 ply and 3 or 4 ply.

 I thought I would share this with all those lasagna lovers out there. On a recent trip to Italy we stopped off at a fantastic restaurant to try their food. The lasagna was to die for and if you want to try the recipe just type in the web address on this card and have a go.
 
See where one of my tea towels from Rome ended up....I can't bring myself to use it, just admire it and remember.
 
  I watched the Dockers and Hawks footy match yesterday and so sad for the Dockers that they didn’t win, maybe next year guys. I’m off to visit some favourite blogs of mine now, so I do hope you enjoy your weekend.

Cheers,  Anita.

Haha, your poor principal! He must feel as if you're all ganging up on him, what with his wife sending fabric in too. He looks fabulous, and such great fun too

I love the doll. A great coat for him. The Geraldton wax flowers are so pretty and the little jackets are lovely. You have been busy.

Good to know there are still some principals out there with a sense of humour. Great fabric for his new jacket.
Pretty little things you have knitted up there.
Plenty of pretty flowers in your garden.
Enjoy the rain.

We are all Hawks supporters so it was a great day for us but I did feel sorry for Matthew Pavlich such a great player and fantastic career, maybe next year. Love your principal I'd love to see what ours would think if I made a lookalike of him!!

My brother was very pleased with the AFL result! Your John doll is very amusing, love the coat. The Geraldton Wax is so pretty; we can't grown them in our heavy clay soil. Love lasagne but have only ever made it once -- way too much messing about for me!
