I'm thinking our summer and Mother Nature is joining forces in our parts and giving us a hard time!!! We had a weird summer thunderstorm here yesterday that left us without power for around 3 and a half hours. I checked on Heather across the other side of town and she was ok. That little moo cow had her power back on after only a short time. Moooooo!
We were getting a bit concerned about all the food in the fridge and freezer, our temperature was about 39C. But you know what? Keep calm.......it is all good now.
Last time I blogged, I told you about the whopping big snake we had....well, sadly we came to the conclusion that one reason we were getting bigger snakes coming in was because of all of our chickens. So with a heavy heart we found them all a new home out on a farm.
Thanks to Jim, Lisa and the kids for taking our chooks and Chester. I had to text Lisa a few hours later to see how they were and she kindly sent me a couple of pics.
On a happier note I have finally finished my beaded dolls. These little girls are off to the Tourist Centre to be sold. I really dig the fabrics I purchased, so bright and happy.
Cute little covered coat hangers
Knitted headbands for newborns
Knitted hot water bottle covers
This little cotton cutie is still on the go. It is a free pattern here. I have knitted it using a cotton yarn, but I believe the pattern is for an 8 ply yarn. It is a knitted from the top down pattern, and that suits me just fine because there is not much in the way of stitching up.
Today's plan of attack is to get some sewing done before it gets too hot. I am going to make some more ruffle bags to sell and one is already sold even before I've made it. lol
I'm also going to do some silent prayers for our Aussie friends down south in Western Australia at Yarloop. They've suffered a devastating fire that has wiped the town out and the fire is still on the go. In fact, across Australia the bushfires are burning away.
