The world’s greatest treasure

Is the small, simple pleasure of

spending our time with good friends.

Well, hello there!! What a glorious morning it is in my little corner of the world today and I hope yours is too. I woke up so early this morning that all my ironing is done, minutes for meetings typed and sent, washing already on the go and my instinct is telling me that I’m going to get lots of time to knit and sew today. I wonder how well that plan works out?? Lol

I found some super duper yarn at the local craft shop this week and knitted this cute little baby top.....

Love the colours!
It is a favourite pattern that I found free on the net.
Sweet as
Click here for the pattern.

Another favourite here for instructions.

Hubby and I shot off to the suburbs on Saturday morning and found more yarn. How did that happen? There’s going to be lots of knitting going on around here.

Can’t  forget about the beads I found in Spotlight. I did have a look around my own town but couldn’t find these sort of beads, that’s why I didn’t shop locally.

And this is my little project I’m on at the moment.

Christmas is coming.
A cute little Christmas boot, pattern found in a magazine. When I finish posting this morning that’s where I’m headed....out to the sewing shed.
How about these eggs?

Blue eggs!!!!

Unusual colour you say? Absolutely. I actually saw these eggs at the local agricultural show and thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. No, they are this funny colour. One of the farmers told me the breed of chook that lays these eggs are called Araucana.
Hubby came home a couple of nights ago from a farm and had been given 2 cartons of eggs. Yes, these funny little blue eggs were in the carton.
Well I’m about to head off to my sewing shed to keep making my Christmas boot. Hope you are all having a fantastic Sunday and everything is going great for you.
Cheers, Anita.
