Having real friends is better 
than having more friends.
I am certain that I am possibly the luckiest girl alive. I am surrounded by so many loving friends, and they bring happiness and joy with them when we meet. This week I was so happy to catch up with friends of mine, John and Jane, whom I hadn't seen for ages. What a beautiful catch up we had, such a strong feeling of 'belonging'. Love you two heaps.

My holiday time is chipping away slowly and even with the heat we have had, the progress in the yard is coming along nicely. This is the beginning of my "All roads lead to Rome" path, made from the stones from Neville and Chris....(more beautiful friends).

More work continues on my path as it will continue into the back section of my Italian area. Here I have pruned the Bougainvillea to just a single stem, as instructed by Harry and Anne.
I'm stoked at how the creeper is humming along too. Awesome!
I found this cute hanging light in Bunnings. At night time the light changes colours, it is lovely to watch as it turns.
lol...Milo is walking to Rome...and into mischief.
As you lovely ladies know....I never tease anyone. I made this little wall hanging using some leftover squares of pirate fabric and stitched the word 'Pirate' onto the top of it. There are little pockets to hide valuable treasures in it. I made this out of inspiration from the two pirates in my life from the gym. Did I mention the names Ian and Alan? lol
A while back I made some beanies and must have put them away somewhere special (forgetting all about them actually). I decided to dress them up a bit using some crocheted flowers. I'm so glad I had a go at learning to crochet.

Oh Milo is so precious
These are my latest creations and very handy indeed. Lovely hanging tea towels with crocheted tops. The orders for these little gems have gone through the roof.
  Another scrap project are pot holders with hanging tags on them.

 My wonderful neighbour Lorraine had no use for this yarn so she gave it to me. I immediately turned it all into winter header warmers for girls. I've tucked them away for next winter's stock.
I will share a few more photos of my plants.... Society garlic, growing nicely.

 The always beautiful Chain of hearts.  

Now my lovelies, hubby has just told me it's going to be a very hot day, so it's time to go out and water the garden before the heat sets in. Special kisses to Verbena and Ale, and to all my blogger friends.
Warm wishes and see you next time.
Ciao, Anita.
