Hello dear friends.....I missed you all last week. My week was so busy that my feet ran one way while my head went the other. Throw in a visit to the dentist in the city, preparing for Christmas, having an all day market, preparing a new order for stock at the Visitor’s center and working full time = crazy.
This week is my last week of work and I also work four full days. It means busy time at work because the library pretty well gets cleaned and packed away. Book stands are taken off the shelves, toys packed away and desks moved to one side of the library so the floor can get a thorough clean.
In all this I have still managed to happily make some projects to help sooth my soul. Come with me and I’ll show you what’s been going on......
I’m thinking of everyone’s waistline when I made these knitted Christmas puddings, the tag reads “No calorie Christmas puddings’. I placed these puddings on a napkin with a little fork and label and wrapped it up with cello paper. A cute gift.
My favourite project at the minute is crocheting little bags for girls. I am having so much fun with these. I’m using the variegated colours for the main section of the bag and then a solid colour for the straps. I add flowers using a brighter tone to pop it off.
Here are lovely handmade library bags. I’m loving the bright colours I used to make them with.
......and here is the old stallion! Lol I won’t pick on him too much today, he has been quite good lately (
which is a
miracle) and in this photograph we were at a cosy little cafe settling our
nerves before we went in to the dentist.
How do you like this? A double yoker! Hubby was cooking breakfast and two days in a row he cracked open two eggs, both with double yokes. We get pretty excited about little surprises like that. lol
Some interesting sculptures? In bright colours in the lovely city of Perth.
We came across this character whilst in the city. How groovy is he?
I can’t resist showing off Heather the feather’s work of art. These are her specialty ....baby clutch balls. Very popular with the customers and very sweet. At least making these keeps Heather off the streets!! Lol
Now that I have well and truly caught up on my blog, I am going to attack some ironing, have another cup of tea, visit my sister and then come home to stay inside. We had 43C here yesterday and today we are having a cooler 36C!!! It is the Australian summer after all. Lol
I throw you handfuls of love and beam to you warm hugs. Have a beautiful week my friends.
