You are somebody's reason
to smile.
Good morning beautiful people! My greeting spreads to all points of the world, wherever you may be. Yesterday I went for a drive with my newest friend, her name is Rosa (pink in Italian). As I drove her back to the pavilion, many people starred and laughed. I am a very cautious driver....Rosa had her seat belt on and was sitting in the front seat. I made Rosa, she is one of my scarecrow creations.  The town folk are used to my shenanigans anyway.๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
 I have finally finished all my commissioned orders from the markets, the crocheted tea towels being the last of them. It has been very successful in the way of orders this year for Heather the feather and I. Now comes Christmas gifts, so the creativity has to begin. What can we come up with? lol we will see.

Meanwhile, I am having fun just dabbling with little projects. I love to find interesting little flower patterns to crochet. The photo below doesn't do this little flower much justice but it is pretty and was fun to make.
 Out through the bushes pops the bright crocheted squares that will become part of a little girls poncho. I am playing with design in crochet and there are so many patterns out there waiting for me to play with.

Today I stay for only a short time as I have much to get through before the new working week starts. I have my husband and youngest son away go karting and they have traveled five hours away to a place called Kalgoorlie. They are there for a big karting event that attracts people from all over the state. 

The prize money is very substantial and my son has won $1500.00 for winning in his class. He came first and broke the fastest lap time set. I am so happy for him, he has worked hard to become excellent in his craft.

That's it.....I'm off to do the many chores that the fairy God mother has not done. May you all have a wonderful and happy day.
Ciao, Anita. x

Tanti auguri from a wet morning in Italy.. I am snuggled on the sofa with our cat Grigio which I think is where I shall stay with my knitting. I’m envious of your crochet skills, It’s a pity I never learnt as you make some beautiful things. Have a good week and thanks for your visit to rural Lazio.

There is always much to smile about when I visit your happy place, Anita. It seems Rosa is the perfect travelling companion. I can just imagine everybody's smiles as you drove past. Congratulations for your son. He must be a whiz at go-karting. Love all your colourful crochet pretties. Well done you for getting all your orders finished. It seems you are always feverishly whipping up pretties for customers. Have a great week!

Hi Anita. I am a bit late getting to you this week. I'd like to think your new friend is well behaved, but knowing you I am sure that is unlikely. Hope she enjoyed the drive.
Well done getting all your orders up to date. I am so pleased you have done well with all your crochet and knitting. You deserve it with all the work you put in.
And well done to your son, too. Obviously takes after his mum with his success.
