🌷Happy Mother’s Day🌷 
Hello young ladies, it’s lovely to catch up with you all. I send a big hug and good wishes to all the Mother's out there. Today we recognize how special all Mothers are but we really know that they're special every day. I plan on having a day of finishing off some crochet orders but in that will come the normal duties as continuing with the clothes washing.

So many things have been going on in the world right now and getting back to a normal routine is certainly taking some adjusting. Here in Western Australia, many of our restrictions have been relaxed even further, with the good news that state borders will continue to stay closed. I am very happy about that.

One thing that has stayed the same is my many projects I have continued to complete. My favoured  project has been finger less mitts for all ages. I have tried a few different patterns to see how they look and which ones I prefer to make. As always there were a couple of knitted pair made as well.

 I was very excited to stumble across this interesting little pattern while looking for a scarf design that was different and unique. I found this on Youtube.
The pattern consists 4 rows that are repeated over and over to desired length. Typical of me....I have not attached any buttons yet. The 3 loops serve as the button holes. 
I couldn't help myself, but I found this cute crochet stitch, so I had to make a baby cardigan using it.
 I loved it so much...I had to make a second cardigan.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ 
This is a new bloom in my garden. Pink geranium flowers, very pretty. 
I have now completed the sitting area I was working on. Last post I had finished one side of the paved area with farm rocks, but hadn't finished the other side due to running out of farm rocks. Many thanks for the farm rocks Chris and Neville. πŸ’–πŸ’“πŸ’–
But here it is....all finished. 🌸🌸

 I'm not sure if I'd shown you these delicate little baby booties or not but they were another amazing pattern I found on the net. I love trying out different techniques in crochet, as it builds up my skills. I thank Youtube for being a visual teacher. 
So now my friends, I'm off to enjoy the rest of my day. I wish you all a fabulous day and wherever you all may be, I hope you're doing one of your most favourite things you love to do.
Ciao, Anita. πŸ’

Buongiorno a tutti!      Good morning everyone!🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹

A beautiful morning to you all! This morning I wake up to the amazing sound of rain, and an indication that our autumn is slowly trickling in. There's a chill in the air as the cold wind invites itself into my kitchen. Such a nice change from the truly tough summer we had this year. 
 The cold weather makes me pretty excited because, though the hot weather made no difference to how much knitting and crocheting I did, the cooler weather is nicer to work in.  I treated myself and purchased these lovely rolls of yarn. They are 150gm rolls of loveliness and I'm looking for the right project to use both. I have had some fun in making little bootie and hat sets for babies.

I will be selling them on line because, as everyone knows, we cannot yet have group gatherings but the sales can still go on via internet. I am happy with the colours I found to make the sets in and I'm not sure about you all out there, but....good yellow tones are a bit tricky to find.

And the hats keep rolling in.  
It seems like I've been treating myself a lot  right now....another visit to my favourite shop in town....a beautiful pair of shoes and a cotton scarf!!! I've worn the shoes already, what a comfortable pair of shoes.

Right now the school holidays are happening and one of the projects on my list was to tidy the yard. What luck, 25 600 x 600 pavers came up for sale and I was there so fast to buy them. My lovely husband loaded all of these heavy pavers into our vehicle and then the mammoth task of unloading and moving them into our yard. We were very tired after doing that but then the next day...the other hard work started. 

So here is one area that was transformed.
                         And my Italian area also received some cheer.
I'm going to get some flat rocks from a farm to finish off the edges.
I sit here and the places my thoughts take me πŸ’žπŸ’•

Now I have my sight set on this area. I will be replacing the plants that were in the hanging baskets, the summer was fierce. Maybe you can give me a few ideas. The side wall is part of my sewing shed, made of tin. I welcome any suggestions.
Oops....more woolly hats popping up. They're almost popping up like mushrooms around here. 😁

So...there is one more week of holidays to go and then I return to work. In this week, full concentration will be on the yard, new stock for my on line sales, doing a couple of medical appointments and catching up on general tidying.

During this time of isolation, I'm reflecting on the things that really matter to me and leaving all the unnecessary things behind. It has given me, and I would say the whole world, time to have a good long look at ourselves. Where can we improve ourselves ; how can we change in how we treat our environment ; living life to the fullest? We have this time to do that thinking. πŸŒπŸ™
 I wish you all a beautiful day, stay safe and send love to all corners of the world.

Ciao, Anita. πŸ“
