Come here you big beautiful cup of coffee, and lie to me about how much we're going to get done today! ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜Š
And a great big beautiful Good Morning, Ciao to you all!!!!! Such a glorious day is the Sunday, with sun shining, the soft melodies of Simon and Garfunkel playing in the back beautiful. 
My creative week had kicked off with the making of some cute little crocheted girls woolly hats. In Australia we call them "beanies"...(for my Italian friends) ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’š 

For Elisa and Federica....the pretty plant still grows.
I planted one of my new bushes and I am watering it with love and pray it grows well in its new home in my garden.
While I'm out in my garden I thought I would take some photo's and share them with you. A knitted cardigan suiting a little boy....with no buttons sewn on usual. I've knitted this in an 8ply acrylic yarn. The size will fit an 18 month old - 2 year old child.
Now back to my cloth doll from my last post. She does look happy today does she not? As I was painting her legs I'd managed to get paint in places I didn't want them and many of you had suggestions on how to fix that problem. Many thanks to you all for wanting to help my with that problem.
I went for painting further up the leg.
Another favourite pass time of mine is to make the tea towels with crocheted tops. I have made these in preparation for the Christmas markets as they are favourites for many people to give as gifts. Yes you lot, have a laugh....I still haven't stitched the buttons on these either. I don't mind you laughing at me. lol
Today I will be doing some stitching on these mug bag covers. I have made these before and thought they would make beautiful gifts for people to give at Christmas.
Now my friends, I have to get a wiggle on and do a few chores before I can reward myself with some free time. Enjoy your lovely Sunday and hopefully next week when you drop by I will have stitched the buttons on every single project I need to put them on. Bet you anything I'll get it done. What do you think? ๐Ÿ˜
Ciao, Anita.

Good morning precious people! A lovely Sunday to you all. After a busy day yesterday at the markets, a good night sleep and a strong coffee this morning…..I’m charged and ready for this beautiful day. The weather was pretty hot yesterday down at the markets and our energy was really zapped, and just to dig the heels in… was a very quiet market. It did give Heather the feather and I some much needed catch up time though, so it was a success after all. Lol The Monster truck event was also on the same day which makes a big impact on how the crowds attend.

As promised, I share a photo of the bench I scored for a low cost. This will be another addition to my Italian themed garden that is an on going project. It was very heavy to lift and comes apart in three pieces. My two sons helped me collect it from a property just out of town. At the moment it is near my sewing shed until I clear away an area in its forever home.

Though my week has been full of action and wonderful things it seems that as far as my craftwork goes, it was a little ‘bitsy and here and there’ type of week. I started making a cloth doll and she’s very pretty. I painted her shoes and left it to dry but somehow I managed to get paint on her leg. So now she’s just sitting there not quite finished. I’m slapping myself!!!! lol

Ho hum….finished the beanie finally, but no flowers made yet.

…..still going on this beanie…….

Oh yes….one bootie made (no ends sewn in)

Well after all that tragedy I do have some consolation…..I have these beautiful plants that I purchased at the markets yesterday. Of course as I’m on a roll with not finishing anything….they haven’t been planted yet. lol

We’re all still laughing about being scary fairies at school. Here I am with Scary fairy Debbie. We had a blast.

….and scary fairy Louise.

From the last post that I did a couple of you asked me how I managed to keep those big glasses on and I will show you. See how the arms go in really small here and they extend out once they are near the frame of the glasses. It was no trouble keeping them on at all. Such fun!!!

I’m wearing the smile you gave me.

Thank you all for sharing a little piece of my Sunday.
Ciao, Anita.
