"You don't stop laughing because you grow older, You grow older because you stop laughing".
Buongiorno a tutti! Good morning everyone! How are you all going? I've been having a wonderful hat festival here. At this time of year Heather the feather and I cannot keep up with the demand for woolly hats, so it seems that it is all I have been making.
I did meet up with a lovely young lady at the markets here in town, who is paying her way through university by holding a stall of crocheted and knitted items...mainly woolly hats. Though she is competition, I have much respect for her because of her determination to raise money for her education, and she's got a similar sense of humour to me.
So below are some of the woolly hats I have made using my left over pieces of gorgeous bright yarns. Over the years I have seen people just disguard lengths of yarn and I will never understand why, when you can still have cute projects that they can be used for.
Young Abby, (from the markets) inspired me to use this yarn to crochet woolly hats. I had been using the traditional 8 ply yarn to make mine but now I am using this yarn which is a thicker yarn and I can't off the top of my memory remember what the yarn is called.😂 I was also inspired to use different stitches as well.
Other than making woolly hats, I have to show off my win. A lady was selling these 2 big terracotta pots on our local buy, sell and swap face book page.....for $20 for both. They are huge!!! The yellow daisies came in the pot already and I was pretty happy about the win.
Feeling very excited about my new Peach tree as well. I remember as a child having a variety of fruit trees in our yard. It was so nice to just pick fresh fruit and eat as much as you liked. I have decided that any trees that come in our yard now will have to be fruit bearing trees. Sometimes I think we waste our land with pretty things instead of useful things. Fingers crossed it will survive.
I have some quick photos of Milo....actually being well behaved...for a change. I seem to manage to catch him with his tongue over his nose in many photos.😊😊
Only being good because there's food involved.
Oh yes, and the handshake that comes when he thinks he's won!
My beautiful son Brandon
Milo....digging his way to China!!!!
This afternoon I plan to sit out here in our meeting place. A nice hot coffee, some crocheting and the husband...to sit and talk a while.
So now my friends I leave you with an insight of my thoughts. I don't feel the need to ever grow old, you're only old if you want to be. I want to be fit enough to run with the grandchildren I hope to one day have, I want to burst into fits of laughter just because, I want to swing off monkey bars, or do backward rolls on the floor. I don't feel the need to ever 'grow up'......as long as I don't walk passed a mirror and catch a glimpse of that face that is now lined and drifting southwards😅...and still I don't care. Here is something funny for you, me having fun. I'm acting like a sloth at Natural movement. lol
