I'm just dropping by my blog to say a quick hello and I hope all my friends in blog land are going well.
I'm still knitting, crocheting and creating.......hiking has also joined my hobby list.
💕One kind word can warm 💕
three winter months
We have another cold winter day here, with the occasional speck of sunshine peaking out from behind the clouds.We pray for cool weather while we struggle through the last throws of our summer; it is that way every year. 😅
This last week or so I have been knitting in chunky yarns, not something I really like because it stains my hands. Every now and then it is alright knit to with. I really love the texture of chunky yarns and the fact it knits up very fast. Here I have made a woolly hat and scarf set, ready to sell at the markets. The colour is called apricot, it is very pretty.
I had to look twice here, but look what has popped up in our lawn.
Due to popular demand in my community, I have knitted more baby items in this colour. All the huge whites, oatmeal, camel colours are being asked for, so Heather the feather and I are knitting madly to meet demand.
Winter is the time for comfort, for good food, and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk near the warm fire: it is the time for home. ☕⛅💞
Hello lovely friends! I welcome you to my blog, we may be in the throws of our cold winter, but there is warmth right here, so stay a while. With my slow mending pinky finger, I have been plowing through lots of commissioned crochet and knitting orders. Though the broken tendon had held me up, but not entirely halted my hobby.......I have now gone wild again. 😂
Come with me and I'll show you what I've been up to.....✈✈✈
🌷 In the town I live there seems to have been several premature births, and the little mitts I have been knitting have reminded me how precious life is. These little pink and white pair are about five seconds big, they fit on a small geranium leaf. It is incredible.
Actually......😅...there seems to be lots of babies being born in our town right now. Perhaps due to people staying home more at the moment? 👀😄 Heather and I are both knitting like wild things to restock our stall at the markets. And the markets!!!!! that just went crazy last weekend.
This little jacket and boot set is knitted in a preferred colour in our area right now. The neutrals, oatmeal, huge whites are our biggest requests. I do like making things in these colours but I am happiest when I can get my hands back on to the bright colours.
Winter has arrived....
And so my friends, our winter has arrived. The grey clouds, the sprinkling tap from the skies, the veins of the creek beds that join our main river are filling. It is very exciting for our community that water comes, and our farmers are overjoyed.
I am also overjoyed with excitement at my purchase on the weekend. I was quick enough on our local buy and sell facebook page to buy this bargain of two pedestals, pots and plants. I cannot tell you how excited I was when they were unloaded and placed at the front of my house. I will be repainting the front verandah in the coming months and it will be a happy place to sit.
I didn't mention that while spending months waiting for my tendon to heal, I have also had chemotherapy cream treatment on my nose for skin cancer. All is good at the moment but I thought I would share a laugh with you with the new freckles that started up. At the end of the two weeks of applying the cream, my nose was like a scarlet colour. lol I didn't think it was so funny then.
Every year when we prepare for the Poultry auction, the Agricultural girls get together to set up the pre loved items table. We always have a dress up and photo session when we finished. We are just too beautiful.There was also a coffee catch up with the old gym crowd. Always so lovely to catch up with these beautiful ladies too.
Well lovely friends, it is time to go once again. As my finger is now at rehabilitation stage, I'm hoping to be able to share more of my craft works. See you next time.
Always remember.... you are braver than you believe,
stronger than you seem,
💕loved more than you know 💕
Well hello there you lovely people 🌹 I hope all is going good for you wherever you may be in the world. Our weather has slowly made the long anticipated change that we, in Australia, are waiting for. In my part of Australia anyway . The nights are cooler with a subtle breeze, and the daylight hours are leaving us a little earlier at the end of the day.
Another thing that has come to an end is my holidays, though these ones were a very testing time for me. I have had this broken tendon that has plagued me for months, however I am at healing stage and can remove the splint more and more each week. At this time also I have had two weeks of chemotherapy cream applied to my nose to kill the cancer cells that have been growing. My nose is like a big hard rock and as red as Rudolph the red nosed reindeer 😅and I am not feeling at all well. The good news is though that the treatment is behind me and on I go. 👌
There is always a balance in life, and even though I've had some challenges, I also have some amazing news.....I can crochet and knit again. 🎉🎈🎉
I'm very happy about that!!!! 😂😂
Here is my bag collection so far, a few are missing as they have been sold.
I must've been on a bit of a roll with using scraps because this beautiful creation is exactly that. There is no actual pattern for it though. What I did was made a few granny squares and joined them together and then found a yoke pattern from the internet and went from there.
This will fit a child aged four or five years old. I have always been drawn to bright colours and stripes. The different coloured buttons will also add to all that brightness going on.
Now that we have a kitten, I discover that they are a fair bit of work. Every day I have to vacuum the house. All the fluff and pieces of stuff that is chewed up and left all over every floor in the house is unreal!! Frank thinks he owns everything.....
....and when he has finished exploring and destroying everything.........😇💕💕
