Speak with honesty,
think with sincerity,

act with integrity.

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.
 I’ve made some super cute little beaded doll brooches, these are my specialty. They really give the Christmas cheer.
 I just had to sneak in this gorgeous photograph of my creeper that is coming along nicely. Do you love the flowers? I do.
Some sweet knitted baby booties! Every spare second I knit up more booties or beanies for next year’s winter market. These go so fast.
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.
 I fell in love with the little flowers. I made only five petals instead of six for this project but if you are interested in the crochet flower pattern, click here for the free pattern.
I can’t help myself....here is number two coming along. lol
 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.
By the way....our visit to the dentist is better this time. I did say to one of my blogger friends that I would let you know how it went. Hubby got a warm hello and a few friendly sentences....I received a quick hello and just had to answer a few questions he asked me as he worked on my teeth. I responded only with yes or no answers. That was better than last visit. lol

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.

Ciao, Anita.

Well, my dear friend - your soul should be Very Soothed!!!!!! What beauty you can create and spot to appreciate. Your creeper is certainly lovely ! Yes, I love flowers -they are the one thing I miss so bad in the Winter time.
I thought of you yesterday when I read an article about a spot in Australia -forgot where it was but it said due to the rains there have been an overload of mice and thus, an overload of SNAKES -even falling through people's roofs -through drain pipes and they were warning people to be so careful . I wondered if any of this was affecting you?

Packing up a library at the end of the year is a huge task. Well done. And I am amazed that you have had time to work on projects in the middle of all this.
Lovely work on all your dolls, puddings and bootees. All are lovely.
Glad the dental visit went well.
I have noticed the hot weather has been getting around your area for a bit now. Good luck.
