When I count my blessings

๐Ÿ’–I count you twice ๐Ÿ’–

Well, hello there!!!!! I’ve been a little bit busy making baby booties for our market

 supplies. Heather the feather and I had a real shock when we went through our box of

 baby booties and discovered we were extremely low in them. 

So here is my little stash…...

To be very honest, the last couple of weeks have been busy on all fronts!!!

 How many times does this happen to you....your weekend is all planned out,

 usually overloaded already and suddenly something comes along and pushes 

you to the limit? ๐Ÿ˜‚ I said yes to someone giving away bricks. I realised later

 that my husband had the vehicle with the tow ball and the trailer at home

 was full.

My friends, Chris and Neville come to the rescue with their big farm truck and 

the day is saved. Turns out a trailer wouldn't have been able to tow all the bricks, 

so the truck was a life saver. The total of bricks were almost 200. These are the 

bricks pictured below near the trailer that would never have been able to bring 

them home. 

Some of the bricks have become the paving in my Greek garden and the rest will be 
added to my Italian garden. Many thanks for coming to the rescue Chris and Neville. 
You people are amazing.๐Ÿ˜˜

Here is another pretty little poncho creation of mine. I'm thrilled to bits with how this 

little piece came together. I love mixing all my leftover yarns together and making 

something special and eye catching.

 How amazing is this crochet edge? I have made it before however, I'm not sure what 

the stitch is called. They look like little bobbles and add such a pretty touch to the 


 Oh and here is Miss Poppy being naughty. My husband is on the other side of the door 

doing his shoulder exercises, so Poppy decided to go around the other side to see what 

is going on. She can't help herself but to investigate.

Another friend of mine will be moving away soon. Lovely Hetty(Pictured left with the 

fish lips ๐Ÿ˜) who is one of my instructors for exercising. Hetty was my instructor many 

many years ago when I first joined the gym. I am happy for her because she will be 

moving closer to her son but sad she will not be around here anymore. Beautiful Anna 

(behind me) will also be moving on.

So my year of friends moving on continues and it feels strange. It is part of life and it is 

a lesson for me. I have always appreciated my friends and the lesson is to continue to 

always make friends so you have an endless supply of them. They are precious. All this 

has made me wonder as I grow easy will it be to find friends?

In the meantime, I am going to continue to enjoy myself, the friends I have and to keep 

loving my crafts. I hope you are all going well and I send my love to everyone in Italy 

who are in lock down. 

Ciao, Anita.

You have been busy with all your beautiful makes. Those booties are so pretty but it is the poncho that has particularly caught my eye. The colours are fabulous and the bobble fringing is gorgeous. However did you do it?? Your Italian garden looks like a heavenly place to sit and watch the world go by.

So sorry your friends are moving. I have had several move in the last few years and it is hard to keep up with them, I think not talking about your daily life makes it hard to keep in touch. Love the poncho and the wonderful bricks for your garden. Stay safe.

That is a big job with the bricks. Glad you had some help.
The bootees look so sweet.
