Gone cowl mad

Friendship seems to
find me  when I need
it the most.
A glorious good morning to you all! I’ve been MIA the last couple of weeks,...I didn’t seem to be able to slow down at all, but it’s all good now. I seem to have gone ‘cowl mad’.....I was rummaging through my scarf box and spotted a cowl I had knitted last year and that was it......out came the knitting needles and the knitting began. Here is what I’ve been doing.....
Pretty blue cowl with a super duper white button

Lolly pop colours for little girls..

This one has been sold...cute baby blue with a crocheted flower.
Catching up with Heather the feather is always a fun experience, so while we were having afternoon tea, Heather whipped out her latest finish. Isn’t it just gorgeous? I imagine it kept her out of trouble for a while too. Lol
(You may think this is a Grandma....but it’s really the wolf!!! Lol)

Here are some Mother’s Day gifts I made for the primary school stall.....

Cute little gifts
Plastic spoons, with three yummy lollies, wrapped it tulle and ribbon. They all sold!! It was a quick and fun project to help raise money for the school.

What else have I been doing?......
Visiting the local library and finding a book full of great quilting and patch working idea’s...

Loving  these home cooked biscuits that Heather baked...they are very nice.

Admiring Max, while he sits, pondering on a video chair outside. He thinks he’s human I’m sure!

Slowly chipping away at my mini quilt, being made for a girl. I’m loving the fabric I’ve chosen for the border,.. it is very sweet.

I’m off now to enjoy my Sunday morning. I’ve had a great weekend of doing mostly the things I want to do, Enjoyed the Dockers game against Geelong last night. Great game Ashlee!! Lol See you all again.

Cheers, Anita.

You sure have been busy Anita - as usual :-) I am loving all your new cowls & your bits & pieces. Glad to see you managed to get your header enlarged too. Your friend Heather sounds to have a good sense of humour. Love the pic of your dog too - have a great week, Julie x0x

Great projects Anita!!! My bff knitted me a rainbow coloured cowl b/c in winter my nose gets so cold, even inside the house w/ the heat on and it's extremely uncomfortable. I teased that I wanted her to knit me a nose sweater. The cowl is beautiful and worked like a charm! Kept my whole neck and ears warm too.

Great work on those cowls. They look lovely. And heather's blanket is great,too.
I remember the days of the Mother's Day stall. Always a great idea for the kids and not expensive.
The quilt is going well.
Enjoy a cuppa with those lovely biscuits.

Lovely to catch up with your busy-ness. Gorgeous colours, fun and friendship and yummies.
Hope Max found the answer to his pondering :)
