I received this lovely parcel from Lyn in New Zealand.
Thank you Lyn I am sure I will put all these beautiful things to good use.
A BIG thank you to the elf for her fantastic organisational skills in putting this swap together.
this is what happens when the elf has a little too much to drink on Christmas eve and then eats too much for Christmas lunch.

Are these not the cutest little things. I was luck enough to win these in a give away. Lisa and I have been chatting for years, she takes lovely photos and knits gorgeous thing some of which she sells. I have put a cotton reel in to show their size. I have the sneaking feeling that these 2 will disappear from my house and go live with Gemma as she loved them, or perhaps I commission Lisa to knit Gemma some as I think I would like them to live with me.
They are knitted in the softest wool.
My SSCS parcel has arrived from Lyn ........ cute little pudding ornaments.
Thank you Lyn I will wait patiently to open my other gift.
A BIG thank you to the elf supremo for organising the swap.
and finally some cuteness our friends dog had puppies 3 weeks ago they are the sweetest little things. This one had just had a big drink and could not lift its belly off the ground.

An Advent Calendar for Charoltte.
I have had fun bringing this together hopefully I will get a pattern written for
Christmas in July 2012 LOL.
Gemma and Sean moved into their new home on Monday, I frantically put this together as their settlement was quite short.
A new quilt for a new home.
and the bag of goodies to fill the advent calendar which is on it's way to Moonta as I type.
I am amazed that every toy you buy these days has some sort of warning attached to it. I have not bought stuff for small children in such a long time. Is there no common sense any more we live in such an over protected world.
Well that was my little rant for the day.
Have a great weekend.

Sadly while out walking I found this after a windy night how clever are these little birds to weave their nest just using a beak and their little feet.

After taking some photos Tony and I headed to Grange for a bite to eat and a walk out the jetty. It was an hot overcast evening, with the sun peeking through the thick cloud cover.
I was out and about the other day and I happened to have my camera in the car.
I had to pull over and take a photo, it made me smile.

So if you can send me your snail mail address i will post you a pattern.
Last weekend was the Port Adelaide Festival Tony and I went for a wander on the Saturday night to see the buildings lite up and then again on Sunday as the weather was lovely.
I have loads to do at the moment but I have spent the afternoon make scrunchies with my niece, she is off on her Netball teams end of season trip. As is everything with my niece it is always last minute we made 20. They are off on a house boat for 3 nights it did sound like fun however I think I would like it more with about 18 less girls.
