The most beautiful line is
“But, I love you”
The most painful line is
“I love you, but”. ..........................................
Good morning my beautiful friends....I have missed you. The last couple of weeks we have been without the internet and I must say I survived fairly well, only missing the fact I could not blog or email and leave comments on your lovely blogs. But all is good now.

I had been commissioned to make a baby set for a dear friend of mine, a blanket, booties and beanie. A beautiful baby girl is on the way so pink and white yarn was put to the works. I could knit or crochet the items, so I thought I would do a bit of both.
Crochet the blanket........

Knit the booties and beanie
And I couldn’t help but throw in a cute little headband as well.

I rather adore the contrast of the cord in pink against the white. I have enjoyed making this set.

 Lovely Lizzie, I hope you are pleased with this as much as I had the pleasure to make it for you.

Heather and I have the markets on next weekend, so here are a few more beanies to add to the collection.

We are having heaps of fun at the markets and for anyone thinking about having a stall of their own, I would recommend doing it. We have met many lovely people who are stall owners and it also gives you the opportunity to met up with old friends to chat with.

I also can’t wait to go and visit Anne and Harry from Our Patch plant stall. They have helped inspire me to get into the garden again and I will be buying more plants from them this coming weekend. I probably didn’t mention that to my husband. lol

I rescued these animals from being given away. They are beautiful and soft, all they needed was a wash. 
I noticed there were some teddies and they will do nicely as a Best dressed teddy for the show in September.

I have a funny story for you about this magazine below. My dearest darling Heather was ‘showing off’ (as usual!!!!) lol about getting her little hands on this magazine, tempting me with all the glorious patterns inside....basically tormenting me and showing off that she had this magazine and I didn’t. 

Being the innocent, kind, patient friend with the halo that I am, I just nodded and said how lucky she was. The next Monday at work I found a note and the same magazine from another friend of mine on my library desk. That will teach you to be a show off Heather. lol

Oh’s so good to be back. Lol. Well I have a terrific week ahead of me I’m sure. I don’t know all that awaits me but my plans are to enjoy myself. I had heaps of fun stirring up the kids at school last week and them bantering back at me, so I’m looking forward to another week of that. Hello to Dusty and Edge, they are two great little farm boys that are so funny.

I will be visiting my favourite blogs later on today and I can’t wait until Verbena returns from her holiday with some beautiful photographs for me to see. I hope you’re having a wonderful time my friend.

See you next time,

I love that set so much. And I am a sucker for stuffed toys too. I love them. When I was little, I didn't have any other kids to play with where I lived & not allowed to have a pet, and my stuffed toys functioned as friends and pets. Glad you are back!

Sometimes a break from the internet is a good thing. Looks like you have loads done for your stall, the baby blanket, hat and booties are wonderful.
Hugs to you,

I Love all of your beautiful creations.

I love you and Heather - what a beautiful friendship. It must have been made in Heaven. Money can never buy a friendship like that.

Getting in the garden will be good for your soul.
Sending hugs and love.

Love the pink and white set. It is so adorable!!
And i know the beanies will be snapped up with our cold weather that has hit us!
Have fun with all those soft toys. It would have been a shame to toss them.
Enjoy that fun new book. I think hat is the one I saw the other day and it had the possum scarf repeated in it that I had made. There were a lot of lovely projects in it.
