Count your nights by stars, not shadows; count your
Life with smiles not tears.
If there is such a word as 'awesomest' then that’s been my last few days! Boy I’ve been bashing away at the crocheting, knitting, planning, sewing and enjoying my lovely days. I’ve made a good choice in surrounding myself with heaps of wonderful friends and I’ve accidentally found some special ones as well.
Some of my new interests have been through meeting these fantastic people. Now who would ever think I could possibly put my knitting needles down long enough to learn more crochet stitches than I am now doing?!! This is what I’m up too at the moment......
A round crocheted cushion with citrus colours.
The back is done in a single colour but you can use the same colours as you do on the front of the cushion. I preferred this way.
The finished size will be approximately 43cm across. I am going to make another round cushion and because I’m getting pretty confident with crocheting, I will look for another pattern to try.
This one is called Mandy’s Mega Mandala cushion. Click here if you would like the pattern.
I have another pattern on the go, my hands need to keep busy.
Heather the feather had given me some beautiful yarn a while back for my birthday and I’d been waiting for the right project to use it for. I found this lovely neck warmer with big buttons. I’m stoked!!! It looks gorgeous and I wish you could all feel it. With the leftover yarn I made a head band.
Knitted items I will be taking to market.....Can’t keep up with the baby beanies and booties.
Oh and here is another yarn I wish you guys could touch. I was given this yarn so unfortunately I do not know the brand or name of it. It’s beautiful. I had enough to make another neck warmer. It didn’t take long for our customers to get interested in the winter items. A little bit of rain and cool weather and it’s on their mind.
cardigan, it is off centre? Well it’s not this crazy old girl knitting wonky, it’s the pattern. I’m slowly becoming very fond of it.
This is a small collection of my works I have made and they’re going on display at the local library. I was meant to have it displayed in March but I have only been contacted just recently to have my display.
Here it is......
The crazy gang at the Agricultural Society held a Poultry Auction on the weekend. It was Captained by Paul, the Poultry Master! And what a wonderful job he and the gang did, so much organising went into the day. It was such a success and fun. This is a great bunch of people who love to see the community enjoy themselves and bring life to the town.
It was hard to get photo's this day as everyone was flat out. But I have to say the two ladies below in green tops are sketchy sorts!!! lol I don't know what they were doing but I'm too scared to ask! lol
Meet Jim and Neville!
Jim is pretending to be doing some work with his blue shirt on and Neville with his hat on, has probably just finished telling someone a fantastic and funny yarn. I missed getting photo's of the other ratbags, and yes.....Heather was with me too. (She was right out of control) xxxx
Some interested visitors looking at the variety of poultry on show
Thanks for joining me today. I’m about to buzz off now because I still have heaps I want to do. The sewing shed is calling me.....so is the washing machine but I’m pretending not to hear the machine. Lol Whatever you're doing today, live a beautiful life.
Vivere una vita bella
