My best friend is the one who brings
Out the best in me.
Hi gang! Boy....have I had a busy week!! Lol...My darling husband came home with three little ones that had come out of a tree in the bush. Let me introduce to you my three new charges.....
Only a mother could love those faces.
These little chicks are called twenty eights. They do turn into colourful birds but are not particularly welcomed in all gardens, especially people with fruit trees in their yards. They do damage by picking out seeds of fruit and then leaving the rest behind. These little guys will live in our aviary unless there is a refuge somewhere that takes them.
So every three hours they are fed. I feel like I have triplets. Lol.
This week my crafting time has been very productive though. Come have a look......
Stitched the buttons on my head bands.
Anyone heard of the crochet term: bphdc ? This pattern has that and it was a bit tricky, but if you are a crocheter you will be fine.
These are for small girls, but if you would like to try this pattern click here.
Oh...oops!...a quick tea break with my favourite magazine. Lots of goodies in here
A sweet little baby beanie.
An interesting knitting stitch that I just had to try. The pattern is called ‘Slippy mesh stitch’....(apparently).
It’s a stitch I have never seen before until the Royal Show where the stitch had been used in a baby set. Even though I have knitted forever, I don’t fly well with the new terms and abbreviations used in the knitting world, so I hoped this pattern wouldn’t be in those terms. Thank you Youtube for your help. Lol I decided to watch how it was made instead. Click here if you are interested in this stitch.
On Friday night the Ag. Society members had a BBQ night and celebrate the success of this year’s show. Of course there were booby prizes and I won 2 of them. The hankies were for me to wipe the sweat off my face as I was close by when the judges were inspecting and picking our knitted items to pieces!!!! Even though I won first prize, it was all too much for me to be within earshot to hear how they go through the work. The eye covers are so I don’t see them doing it!!
A nice little surprise came in the form of this cute little tin. I helped a friend out with some knitting and this was my reward. Thanks Dale, you didn’t have to.
What will this coming week bring I wonder? I’m hoping for a fabulous, fun week. I’m starting on new projects so I can show and tell next week. We have rain here today at Hayestackhayes, a lovely sound before our summer starts. Hope it’s not bad news for our farmers because there is hay on the ground.
See ya later alligator!!
