Life is great!!

Offer others what you have to give...
your time, your ear, your concern.

Best news ever!!!! I am to be an Aunty again!!! Congratulations Sam, I bet little Hudson is over the moon to have a new baby brother or sister on the way. The knitting needles are out and working. I love spoiling the little ones with handmade gifts.

On Saturday I helped in the Pavilion at the Perth Royal Show doing PR work for the regional display of our area. I had such a super time and sharing the day with an out-of-control fun person topped it off. Here are some pics I took at the show......

And just keeping in good form below is a Mad Hatter cake. How appropriate!!

Out of this world patchwork

Above :this amazing piece of woodwork was produced by Megan. What a great effort.

 On the knitting front, I have now started on other projects. A simple headband with a cute little crocheted flower and yellow button.

 I’ll be making more headbands get stock up for next year’s sales. The pattern is here.

 A Yummy knitted edge I’m working on right now. It’s called lines and squares lace. Want to have a go? Here’s the pattern:

                                                                                                      You can use this pattern for any ply yarn so you will need to use the appropriate size needles for the ply of yarn you are using ie. 8 ply wool you would use size 8 (4mm) needles.

K2tog = knit 2 stitches together (this makes 1 stitch)
M1 = make one by pulling the yarn forward

Cast on 14 sts
Row 1: K2, m1, K2tog, k1, m1, k2tog, m1, k7.
Row 2 and alternate rows: Knit.
Row 3: K2, m1, k2tog, k2, m1, k2tog, m1, k7
Row 5: k2, m1, k2tog, k1, (m1, k2tog) twice, m1, k7
Row 7: k2, m1, k2tog, k2, (m1, k2tog) twice, m1, k7
Row 9: k2, m1, k2tog, k1, (m1, k2tog) three times, m1, k7
Row 11: k2, m1, k2tog, k 2. (m1, k2tog) three times, m1, k7
Row 12: cast off 6 sts, knit to end.
These 12 rows form pattern. Repeat until you get desired length.

Our new additions to the family

I’ve had the best weekend and I’m now enjoying 2 weeks school holidays. The weather is glorious today so I reckon the sewing shed is calling me. Lol. Hope life is as sweet for you as it is for me right now. Have a great week.

Cheers, Anita.
