Yesterday I was clever and wanted to change the world,
Today I am wise and I am changing ๐ŸŒŸmyself. ๐ŸŒŸ

Good morning lovely people! It is better to be late than never, so here I am finally. ๐Ÿ˜Š I have had an interesting time with my camera being naughty over the weekend...all the photos were too bright for me to use and I've finally discovered why. I had knocked one of the settings off. lol. So now I can share....

This week I had a lucky find on our local Sell and Buy page on Face book and look what I have acquired....
Costing me $10, is this beautiful design piece by Anna Grandler from Australia. I almost passed out when I lifted it, it is so heavy. I had planned to hang it on the wall but I'm terrified it will pull my wall down. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

I promised to make a good start on making lots of new stock for the summer markets and I am very happy to say that I have stuck to my plan. It is tempting to sit in the pool and swim all day because of the heat we are having, but I have made the effort not to do that. Here are three girls bags made out of cute girl fabrics. I don't do enough sewing so I'm getting stuck into that more and I can tell is hard to put down the crochet hook and knitting needles.
 I haven't put down the crochet hook or knitting needles altogether though because at night I still make things. Do you all like my unicorn bag? I was very happy with the end result. It was quick, easy and pretty. I hope this sells well at the markets and I have started making another one, just so I have a few hanging there to entice people.

Would you like the pattern for this? Click here! ๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿฆ„
 These are the latest woolly hats and messy bun hats that have been made from my needles. In some cases I have used 3 yarns together to give a textured effect and it knits up faster. Some of the hats have a crocheted flower on it and some I have left plain as not everyone likes the flower on it.
 This lonely little head band will join the other mixed design headbands. I am not making anymore of them right now because.....I didn't enjoy it. It looks pretty but it's not something that excited me. ⛈
Well my loves, I am off to do some more sewing today. We are expecting a sizzling hot 40C today and if I can stay indoors today...I will be a happy girl. I hope you all enjoy your beautiful day wherever you are in this world.

Ciao, Anita. ๐Ÿ˜‡

Aahh....yes the only person we can change is us, isn't it; the world will have to wait. =) Your little unicorn bag is gorgeous. A little one who is four years old informed me the other day that unicorns are on trend! That little bag will fly off the shelf. So happy to see you are still whipping a creative storm over there, Anita. Happy New Year to you, too♥

It is a never ending cycle to try to keep up the supply of stock for the markets.
Well done with all you have finished, especially considering the heat.
The bags you have sewn are lovely and the crochet unicorn bag is a delight.
