Wonderful friends

The road to a friend’s house
Is never long
-Dutch proverb
Hello, I realised something this morning.....throughout this last week, I visited almost all the people that I hold very close to my heart. When you think about it,  that doesn’t happen very often. I missed out on a couple of people and will catch up with them very soon. The sharing of holiday photo’s with two of my dear friends was amazing and because the photo’s were of Italy.....that stirred up the wonderful memories of our trip. It was lovely to visit with you my dear friends. 

A gift given to me....I will treasure it!

I was on a mission these holidays to make as many show entries as I could and my time was well spent. I will have to show and tell after the show as I would like to keep my items under wrap (secret squirrel) lol. I can show you this......

A baby jacket, 291 stitches cast on, knitting in 2 ply merino wool. Very delicate and very enjoyable to knit. It’s a bit like knitting with spider web...just love it.’
I also had some gardening to catch up with, so this is the section of garden that copped a pruning. The rose bushes have been cut right back and a mile of weeding was done. We had a huge red bin dropped off during the week so I made sure to fill it as much as I could.

Beautiful homemade biscuits from ratbag Heather the feather. These are the yummiest biscuits ever!!!! Heather is a wonderful friend....even though she gets out of control sometimes. Lol

A lovely Homespun magazine to browse through!!

Well tomorrow it's back to work for me. Had a wonderful holiday, though it went way too quick, it will be great to catch up with the tribe at work. Hope your weekend is a hum dinger  one for you!!!!

Cheers, Anita.

Holiday fun

Friendship is made up of little things – a pat on the back, an unexpected phone call, a small gift, an unexpected phone call,

a note of thanks, a batch of chocolate chip cookies.....
Hey......good morning!! Lol I have been almost like...under ground the last couple of weeks. I’ve started my holidays and true to my word, I have tucked into making a start on my show entries. I have also been making other things as well, like these head bands that have been sent to market.

The girls around town have gone wild on head bands and as quick as I have knitted them, they have been sold.

The mixed weather we have been having as given me some much loved time in the sewing shed. What do you think of my hoot owl? 
His eyes are yo yo’s with beads sewn around the rim, bits of left over cotton fabrics and embroidered stitches around the sections of belly and wings.

I also have started on a cute little cloth doll. The pattern comes from an old edition of Handmade and is giving me many hours of pleasure. 

I have just finished this little embroidered gift that I have made using bright happy colours. This will be going to the tourist centre for sale.

Things that make me happy.....
Smiles   laughter    feeling loved   a warm fire place   knitting
Hot cup of tea    Italy  friendship 
What makes you happy? Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for dropping by.
Cheers, Anita.
