 You can't go back and change the beginning but you can start where you  are and change the ending.

Well hello there you lovely people. How are you all going?  I'm very sure I've gone bag crazy! 😂💫 Even though our weather has been mostly in the 40C temperature, I have been out in my sewing shed, pressing the accelerator on fast speed and sewing up all these cute little bags.  I've loved it. I'm trying to build up my stock for the Visitor Centre and also for the markets that start up again in February.

I have so much lovely fabric stored away that I really need to put that crochet hook and knitting needle down and sew some more. I now don't work on a Monday or a Friday, due to hours being reshuffled at work. Same hours but all crammed into three days. That's fine for me, so those two days are now dedicated to producing some lovely creations.
My oldest son Brandon and I have made a new vegetable growing area. I have tomatoes growing at the moment and they're positioned in full sunlight. This new area is in filtered sunlight under a tree. I purchased three heavy plastic raised garden beds. I have to admit, I do not like plastic at all. The world is full of too much plastic. On the flip side though, I really love how these raised beds fit in this small area and the sunlight will get to the vegetables as they grow.

My latest project is........another bag. This time I have crocheted the bag. Finally I'm getting through those little lengths of yarn and feeling very pleased that I found a purpose for that little piece of yarn. Yes, I've let you into the mind of a crazy woman. 😄
I still have to line the bag with a pretty fabric and find an idea to be able to close the bag.
Now for something a little different....these little crocheted baby swing tops. I didn't actually have a pattern for these but I did just zoom in on the photo on the internet to guess how the pattern may have gone. They seemed to have turned out just fine. I've used cotton yarns and 8ply and 4 ply, and simply went for it. The element of surprise in how big or small it would turn out was fun. lol

Of course, I always have enough time to knit a little pair of woolly boots for babies. That is like a therapy for me.

Talking of therapy, I'm about to take off to go back into my sewing shed to continue with my projects and making more goods. Everyone take care of yourselves both in body and soul. I've been having a little peek around your blogs too and you have all been making some very pretty things yourself! Thank you for your lovely blogs, I love visiting you all. 💖

Ciao, Anita.

Great to see you keeping busy. Lovely way to use up your fabrics in those cute bags.
Having your hours squeezed into three days sounds like a good idea. It may make it busy at work, but the bonus is having two extra days at home. Yay!
The raised garden beds are a great idea regardless of the plastic. Hope they go well.
And well done finding ways to use all those scrappy bits of yarn.
