Give me strength!! lol

Act as though it
was impossible to fail.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson.
Did everyone have a lovely Christmas? I sure hope you did. Our home was humming, especially with our new bundle of trouble joy. I’m so excited to finally show you what Heather’s gift looked like wrapped up in the stitchery tag and calico ribbon I made........

You like?
Milo also enjoyed his first Christmas and even though we tried very hard, it was impossible to get a still shot of him parading around in his Chrissy hat I made him. I stitched his name across the front of his hat....

He certainly had a ball playing in the paper. He popped all the balloons by biting them and we were very fast to get rid of the pieces of balloon before he ate them.

 Amongst the handmade things I made for gifts, these are a pair of knitted bed slippers I made for my sister Rosa. She is bed ridden and feels the cold, and so she loved receiving them.

What’s this?
no Milo!!


Stop that!!!!


Is that some baron land Milo has landed on? Oh no....that would be what’s left of my once lush garden!!! Naughty!

I suppose you didn’t do this either Milo?

He’s chewing everything!!!! Lol

In all this fun and madness, I managed to knit a pair of fingerless mittens. This pair I kind of concocted a pattern and went for it. You may think I’m mad knitting in this heat....yesterday we had 45C. Man it was hot, but when you’re a knitting addict you just can’t stop.

Today I’m plodding around the house, probably not going too far as I get up early to do doggy training, water the garden, feed the chooks and do any job that will be too difficult to do later in the day.
Have a super week guys and Happy New Year.

Cheers, Anita.

It's nice to hear Milo can keep your mind off the heat. I don't think I would fare well at all in 45 degree heat. Winnipeg was -45C (with the wind chill.)
Happy New Year!

Oh Milo!!! lol What a cutie pie though. It's wicked cold here. 14F. Brrrrrr

Astrid said...

LOL on Milo! We have two dogs, adults now, once they were puppies too! :) Beautiful slippers and fingerless mittens. 45 degrees?! OMG! I should stop complaining about the 30+ here!

It looks like you had a lot of fun at Christmas.
The ribbon and tag on heather's gift looks fantastic. Bet she loved it.
Milo looks like he is well and truly keeping all of you on your toes. They love to chew everything, don't they!
I can't imagine you ever stopping knitting!

Wow Anita, I can see Milo & his mischeif sure fills up your days, he is sooo gorgeous. I think Heathers parcel looks wonderful with the tag & ribbon you made. Have a wonderful, creative New Year & keep up with your creations for 2015 :-)
