Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.

Marcus Aurelius


Hello there lovely people 😎. So many things have happened since I posted last, and I just can't believe it. My youngest son and his girlfriend have made the move to the city and will experience all that comes with living away from home. I wish them all the best in the world and I know it will be amazing for them. I do miss them dearly but would never hold them back.

I have been crocheting like a wild woman, getting orders completed, making a start on my show entries and making gifts for babies. I found this pretty baby jacket on You tube and thought I would have a go at making it. I love You tube.

I've actually made heaps of beautiful things and when I've finished making all the commissioned items, I love nothing more than having free time to make whatever I want to. One of my favourite things are the circular crocheted vests. The one below has been made for the markets and I had some of the colour left over so I made a cute little beanie to match.

I am continuing to add to my poncho collection and this cute little number below is still in the making. I need to add a tie and tassels and it's done.

I have been very successful lately on our local Buy and sell Facebook page. I managed to pick up some cement garden edging for $60 and here I've made a start in the garden to include them. I still have to re-arrange the brickwork now but that will be an on going project.

I also was lucky to pick this amazing bird bath up for only $50 and it is very heavy.....and one of the nicest bird baths I have seen in a long time. It was on the Facebook page for 13 minutes when I snapped it up. By the time I got to the sellers house they told me they had received so many messages from people wanting to buy it. How cool.
At work I have received over 700 little reading books that I need to catalogue and cover. Volunteers have come to help me with getting the books done quickly. Here we have the lovely Neville and Chris helping me with the covering of the books. Thanks you guys, you're just gorgeous.

On Saturday I babysat my great niece and nephews, but before I left home Mr Balloon decided to fly over and be all beautiful. πŸ’“
So, as it is after 10pm, I think I'd better think about settling down for the night and getting some sleep. Thanks for dropping by and visiting me here. Peace be with you. πŸ˜‡

Ciao, Anita.

Still crocheting up a beautiful storm of pretty pretties! The little birds always grow up and leave the nest. =) That is a fabulous birdbath and won't it look great in your garden. The edging was a fabulous buy, too. Your winter garden is looking great. Down here, I am afraid Jack Frost has left his mark, so all is rather burnt and glum. Not to worry, spring is only about 3 or so months away.

You've been busy! Cute little girl jacket and fun ponchos. Great buys and the birdbath is fabulous. 'Winter' here too, rain and wind the last week, no yard work.

Such a pretty pink jacket ... you’ve keep busy making nice ponchos too.
You’ve had some great pick ups on Facebook to aid to your lovely garden....

You are busy again. And of course the cold has arrived so people want their winter woollies. The garden is looking great, too.
