Mistakes are valuable.

They show us the correct

path to take next time.

Good morning to you all! A big Happy Birthday to hubby today,, he’s turned....
53 years young and is in pretty good shape for an old rooster!! Lol  I have had some emails from bloggers in blogland regarding my header photo. Where was the photo taken you ask? It is actually from our trip to Italy on the island of Capri. It is in the lovely  San Michele villa of Axel Munthe.  I would love to make this image bigger but can’t work out how to do that. Can anyone help me with that?

Had a fantastic week, lots of started and not quite finished projects. Here’s what I’ve been up to....

Cute little top down baby cardigan knitted in 8 ply. This one is for sale, any queries email me.


Knitted a couple of sweet owls using bits of  leftover yarn. These are both made in 8 ply yarns.

How sweet are they?

It must be the season of the owl because here I have made a start on another owl using fabrics.


Love the beaded eyes?

And speaking of material......is this not heaven? An enormous bag of fabrics given to me. The owner no longer wanted the material?????? What is that? Lol
 
A bit of Christmas happening as well. I'm still going with this project, need to stitch the hearts on to the tab.
I had a lovely cup of tea with my ratbag friend Heather,, of course the afternoon was fabulous with her company (she didn’t act up too much). This incredible friend of mine is on a roll with these rather special little aliens. Take a look.....

 
 
Girl ones and boy ones

I love the way Heather has stitched all sorts of bits on the aliens, and these little creatures are about 7 inches tall. They must be a pretty good project to do, it’s rather kept Heather out of the trouble she would normally get into.....Love you to bits Heather xx.
I had bit of a search on the net yesterday and did you know that Italy has 29 volcanoes. – some active and some extinct. How does such a small country have so many volcanoes??!! We still plan to go back there regardless of the volcanoes. Today I am planning to wonder back out to the shed before it gets too hot and keep going with my projects. Last weekend the plan worked, so I hope it does this weekend too. Have the best weekend ever!!!!

Cheers, Anita.

LOVE love love the colourful sweater (cardigan) - the colours are fabulous! The knitted owls are cute too - I wish I could knit - those look pretty simple, and a good way to use up scraps and leftovers :) The beads on the other owl's eyes are really cool - they add a lot of dimension to the eyes - it never occurred to me to use yoyos for that part, let alone to embellish with beads! Must try :D
