And hang on now....

Didn't think I didn't have any crafting to show did you?  LOL

Crocheted bookmark.
A mat for my table.

A grey birdy.

A newborn pressie.

Garden Goodies!

You prepare the soil, plant the seeds and then you get to eat the yummy goodies at the end!!!!!

These are 'Jack be little' pumpkins....our first time growing them and aren't they just the cutest! I roasted them whole and ate them with a spoon! I've saved the seeds too ready for next years crop planting......

And look at the yummy greens that are starting to produce - silverbeet, peas..Oh and some parsley thrown in cos it adds to the flavour when steaming :)

And my first ever strawberry jam - quite proud of this one.....Our strawberries are producing heaps now.
Soooooooo much better tasting than the shop bought jam too!

Another month and a bit and we'll be heading into spring here in Australia so it's time to be thinking of our next seed plant up - Corn is definitely on the list as well as a big selection of flowers to help out the native bees in our area (not to mention it helps our plants pollinate too)

Swiss cheese in Paris....

And the beauty is finished......a swiss cheese scarf in Malabrigo lace yarn - colorway 'Paris night'. It couldn't have turned out any softer or lighter than it is, such a pleasure even if it was a tedious pattern at times.
I used the modifications made by another raveller HERE to make my scarf and I am so glad I learnt how to do a one row buttonhole because it is just ingenious!!!!!
