Wishing you yesterday’s promises,
today’s dreams and
Buon giorno! It is official.....I'm hooked on knitting those cute little birds and basically I can’t seem to stop. Lol. It’s funny when you find something that you really love to do, then everything else goes in a heap. Another terrific week has zipped by and I have accomplished many things, not only in craft work but also life in general. Check out my week with me.....
My cute little knitted birds that are slowly building up at my house...
I love these, so cute.
A girl’s wall hanging that I’ve made a start on. I will keep you updated as I go with this project. So far I have pinned the pieces onto the calico, stitched the ric rac on with embroidery thread......
Totally love the colours and pattern
Thinking about what to do with this little piece of knitting that was given to me in a give away box from a friend. I'm still having a think about what to do...it will come to me.
My fine feathered friend Heather has been busy with her craft work too and when she showed me her finished work I had to share it with you all. Such a steady hand and a neatness about her work.....doesn’t defy the villain she is!! Lol Oops....my halo slipped just then. The colours, the cute teddy, I love it all. The pic was taken on my mobile so it doesn’t show up as well as I’d hoped, but it is a glorious piece of work done by a talented young lady.
Gorgeous work Heather
For years I have driven past and thought fondly of all the fun we had as kids at the sale yards. I have watched as it has stood there in its own company and as bits have fallen apart. My biggest shock was to be told that soon it will disappear, how broken is my heart! I thought I would take the photo’s I would need to heal my heart and etch the memory in my mind forever.
Looking from the roadside you would think that it is mostly still intact, however when you get up close most of the pens have now been removed. When I saw this my heart skipped a beat, but I have enough in these photo’s to still feel all warm and fuzzy. As a child this smelly, dusty, peaceful, free place was a safety haven for me and a great place for all the kids in the neighbourhood who could be what they wanted to be. We could pretend we were sheep, or farmers or monsters, depending on the childhood game we were playing. Hidey was pretty fun to play here.
Today I am going to whiz through the ironing and then hack away in the sewing shed. I'm keen to make more progress on my mini wall hanging....oh and in the afternoon do some knitting. I can see birds happening. The cheeriest on Sunday’s to you all and may the week ahead be all you can dream for.
