Long Car Trip....

After a few repairs here.....

and some more under there....

We were ready for a long car trip which involved lots of this....So we could pick up this....My new baby.... LOL!!!
The beauty of long car trips is that you get heaps of knitting done.
I got this little cardie (pattern free from Ravelry) finished for Miss Connie early on in the trip and then she wore it the rest of the way... (she has it on in the pic above, too cute)And these seat belt covers I whipped up for Little Millie's car seat straps... They were super easy and if you'd like the pattern just leave me a comment and I'll email it to you...
In about an hour I'll be hitting the road again. We're heading down to Melbourne for a wedding this weekend and can't wait to see the gorgeous bride and groom walk down the isle... I'm really not looking forward to seeing all of the bush fire devastation though. I think it may be a big eye opener for my little family as we drive through affected areas...
Have a great weekend...

  6. Lucky you having a nice new car. I love Connie's little cardigan, how gorgeous and she looks very cute in it too. Those seat belt covers look great. I used to use ones made out of sheeps wool for Isabelle when she was little and they were great. I hope you dont see too much devastation along the way, it looks eerie enough on tv.
