I think this one is my favorite - I just adore vintage doilies :)

And look how yummy these home grown baby beets are....lightly steamed they became my lunch the other day...mmmmm I love our vege garden :)

Quick one!

Just a quick post from me.....lots happening here with my kiddies on school holidays and not much time to myself.
First I think I'll admit something.....Oh the shame!
I've finally dug this poor UFO out of the dark depths of a cupboard where it has been sitting.....I started this cardi for myself way back at the start of 2012 and it's pretty much been waiting on two 3/4 sleeves to be finished *sigh*, not really sure what happened other than other things just seemed more important to make ..............insert bottom lip out......... anyway determined to finish it this month so I WILL be able to wear it this winter! Hold me to it!

Getting past the shame and into the other things LOL
I just fininished this cute crocheted circle shrug for a friends daughter - the combination of colors is sure to brighten any winter day :)

These squares are for the same friend but my contribution to a blanket that is being made for her new belly bub - so fabulous that a bunch of us are all putting our touch on it. I made all these up as I went.

And of course you want to see my assistant to daily walkabouts is Miss Calliope enjoying a ride in her mei tai carrier......

Here are my two entrys - I adore the doilys I used to make the green bag, what a find they were!!!!!


Have been hooking again too - look how easy it is to turn an empty tin can into something cool :)
I made this one for a swap partner.

Also been making a bunch of bags for my shop - I am very close to keeping the purple one for myself, such adorable vintage fabric!!!!

And who can forget my 52 trees in 2013 pledge back HERE
Well my husband and I are well on our way - so far we've planted out 12 native Hoop pines that we have looked after since they were the tiniest they are in rows down our bush driveway. And we also planted a lime tree in our vege garden.
