If you always do

what you’ve always done

You’ll always get

what you’ve always got

Anthony Robbins.

A big happy good morning to you all, around here at Hayestackhayes bodies are just beginning to stir and it’s almost 10am!!! Last night was full of action with helicopters flying over looking for 2 escaped persons from the detention centre. One has been located and the other is still roaming around our town site somewhere.

Besides that action, someone had dropped off a knitting pattern for a plum pudding and for the life of me I didn’t know who did that but have since realised!! Lol. Have a look at these little cuties.....

 
I could eat these!! lol
They don’t use much yarn at all and I made two different kinds. The original pattern has no bottom and you actually fill the pudding with sweets wrapped in clear food wrap, a foil patty cup, and wrap the whole thing with cello as a gift. I made two of those and I thought it would be fun to also make some puddings with toy stuffing and crochet a bottom as a base. What do you think? I immediately shared with Heather and we made some on Christmas day. Just a good way to keep Heather out of trouble really!! Lol and I also sent the pattern to another friend, Ashlee, for her mum. Oh boy, I hope you got your lunch on Christmas day Ashlee.....I did send the pattern just before lunch time!!
Still full of Christmas spirit, I made a Christmas doll ornament to add to my tree. I had some gorgeous fabric left and had to make something out of it.
Sweet doll

Heather’s daughter Suzie sent me this rather cute little reindeer she made out of corks....how very clever it is. I’ve named the reindeer Heather by the way!!


Thanks Suez

I catalogued this cute new book into my library and had to try out a pattern I spotted. A cute little koala. I used 8 ply yarns and it knitted up in no time. It will end up at the library of course.
 
Fab book!!!


Koala blue

Some fantastic gifts I received for Christmas.......
Fabric is always the right thing for me.

Gorgeous cup from Heather the feather


I’m off to make some breakfast now as my tummy is grumbling like mad!! Have a terrific weekend and stay cool.

Cheers, Anita.

Looks like a lovely way to start the day. I think the missing escapee may be cooling off in your swimming pool!!
Those little puddings are gorgeous. I agree with stuffing them instead of adding lollies. That way they will always look good instead of empty.
Lovely to see your other decorations, too.
The koala is sweet and the book looks full of ideas.
We have been lazy here watching the cricket while I slowly pack up the Christmas decorations.
I finally found my sewing room yesterday, so maybe a little stitching will happen soon.

Hope they find the escape soon......not in your pool like Karen said...
Love the plum puddings with stuffing and bottoms closed.
Cute Angel and Koala...
Can see many nice projects made out of your new book.

Gosh Anita - sure hope they find the escaped prisoner soon!! Your christmas puds & your new angel are just SOO gorgeous ... I think I love the idea of the stuffed ones best - they would probably sit better. I am glad you are still making some christmas decs too ... as I am over here :-) Hope you have a wonderful New Year Anita. Julie x0x
