'In the depth of winter I finally learned
that there was in me an invincible summer.'
Good morning lovely people and hello winter! We are waking up to amazing grey clouds with the sun peaking through to say hello, I am still here. Finally the rain has come and we are sending prayers that Mother Nature will send the rain to our beautiful farmers who so need the paddocks soaked with water.
I took a few snap shots from my front yard.💖
I love how this part of the garden always makes me feel happy. Green, white & red.
As I was standing outside this morning admiring the array of grey tones in the sky, the birds were going crazy. Flying by and overhead, non stop. I was quick enough to catch a photo of this little cute bird. And then he was off.
Aside from the beauty of nature during winter comes the best
excuse reason to keep spending heaps of time knitting and crocheting. Heather the feather gave me a rather interesting colored ball of yarn. The colors of the winter months all joined together, so what better plan to knit it into woolly hat, mitts and ear warmers.
In fact, I loved the ear warmers so much that I made more. I found the pattern on the internet somewhere.😂 It is such an easy pattern to crochet.
I discovered a new brand of yarn to knit with, the Birch brand. I don't know if any of you have used it before but I'm about to find out how it works. 🙏
I was very lucky this week because I came across a simple, quick boot pattern for a new born baby. I used 8 ply, 4mm needles to make these cute boots. I am now making a woolly hat to go with them. Some one will love these when they are finished.
Actually, to be honest, I had a pretty good week last week. I like taking some quiet time to reflect on positive things that have happened to me, it balances your mind.
I bet you could do the same thing. All those little things add up and outweigh the negative. For me, the restrictions from Corona virus have lifted so much, I met up with my crazy bunch of Ag Society friends, had afternoon tea with Heather the feather, found some amazing patterns and also found this beautiful warm blanket at the Op shop for $5.00!! I am blessed 💝
Well beautiful friends (see, another positive), I'm off to do some jobs......I have to actually get dressed first. lol I hope you all have an amazing Sunday, stay safe and happy. See you all next time.Arrivederci! Anita 🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒
