The Sweet Smell of Home...

After yet another long car trip I've finally made it home.... No matter how much fun I have while I'm away or how well my Mum looks after me nothing beats the feeling of coming home.... So today, while nursing a really bad case of Mondayitis, I sat in my favourite spot in the garden and just took a big breath....

Take Care... :)

p.s. the pics are of the matching top I made for Miss Connie that I mentioned in the previous post.

Busy....

I think the title says it all....
I've been so busy since the Easter break with visitors that ended up staying for an extra week, a trip to Mum's and a visit down to VIC to see my sister for the first time since she moved to this beautiful town 3 months ago....

I'm back at Mum's house tonight and not too sure when I'll be venturing back to the farm...
(little millie at my sister's house in the swing)
Millie has been an absoulte angel through the whole expedition but Connie (my 2yr old), now that's a whole other story... LOL!!! Don't get me wrong she's a great kid but at the moment she's really testing some boundaries....
(miss connie at lunch on the road)
Not too much crafting to report seen as though I've been the driver this trip (DH didn't come with us).... I've had a chance to do a bit of night time knitting though, producing this for Little Millie...

It's a super cute little sweater but I omitted the sleeves to make it a top...
(full view of sweater... sorry about the angle!!! I don't know what's wrong with blogger tonight, this pic was the right way around until I uploaded it... das anyone else ben having this problem??)
I have another one on the needles in the same colours for Miss Connie but have decided to omit the side neck opening as the neck whole is fairly generous and for my version not really necessary......

I have loads of great goodies from my trip to share with you all but that will have to wait til I'm back home.... I even got a chance to go to this amazing place. OMG I'll definitely be venturing back there in the future...

Take Care :)

Stocking Up...

This weeks knitting has seen the completion of a matching bunny hat for miss Connie...I love this pattern by Susan B Anderson from this amazing book... This woman truly is an inspiration when it comes to all things itty bitty... I've also managed to knit up another one of these little pebble vests, this time for my step brothers baby boy which is due and day now....I used 5mm needles instead pf 4mm and a 10ply yarn. As a result the vest has made up to be a size 6-9 months instead of newborn which is just perfect...
Can you believe that Easter is this weekend??? Where on earth has this year gone???
I have visitors arriving for the long weekend on Thursday so am off to town for the day today to 'stock up'.... What fun things have you got planned for the long weekend???
We've got a heap of sheep to muster and while I have the extra 'manpower' around I'm planning on putting it to good use and painting the girls cubby and building a garden bed...
(that's the cubby in the background of the pic above, definitely needs a coat of paint... )

Have a happy Easter everyone and Take Care... ^_^
