Keep Your Valuables Close!!!

Let me set the scene......


Just before Xmas DH decided that he'd surprise me with a gift that was destined to save me a hell of a lot of wasted time on the business front - a Smart Phone... I was SO EXCITED!!!!! I was now able to email and blog as well as catch up on all my other Internet Stuff 'on the go'... I loved my Smart Phone and treated it accordingly...

That was until last Monday night, my first night away at camp, when after less than 15mins of sitting on a bench top in our hostel, unattended as I bathed my Connie Girl, my new Smart Phone went missing... At first I assumed that it was simply misplaced, I searched and searched and searched and searched - for a whole week and nearly went crazy in the process - but now after confirmation from my provided I know that my phone was in fact stolen.....

Although I cancelled my SIM as soon as I misplaced my phone there are still precious pictures that remain on the hard drive of my missing Smart Phone...

I am absolutely devastated!!! Even as I type this post I still can't believe that something like this has happened - surely I must be mistaken??? Right???? Why would someone want to 'steel' my phone??? Are there really people out there like that????

So now, I sit here without a phone. Being isolated like we are out here it's a 10 day, minimum, wait before my replacement phone will arrive but do I really want it???... I'm not a religious person but I do believe that you should 'do unto others as you would like done unto you' - right??? I could never imagine taking someones private possession for my own gain - could you?

At least I managed to download this pic off my Smart Phone the day before School camp.....

Another Liesl....

This week, in between School lessons, I've been putting the finishing touches on another Liesl cardigan....
Liesl 1
I simply love this pattern!!!! For some reason it just seems to fly off the needles and no matter how many times I make it, each and every time is a pleasure.... For this Liesl version I've gone with a capped sleeve and wide neck opening. I made the size 42' even though I am only a 38' - I wanted a lot of give this time round'!! I used 7mm needles and my yarn of choice is a DK weight - sorry but the brand is a secret for now... All I can say is that I'm very excited to now be stocking this gorgeous Australian yarn in my Shop and as soon as I open back up I'll tell you all about it.....

Yes that's right - I've had the doors of Jellywares closed for the past 5 weeks through the heat of Summer. This has given me just the right amount of time to do a little Spring cleaning while I take a well earned break spending time with my family... As most of you know I school my Connie girl from the farm and this year we have moved our schoolroom to the heart of the house to make it a little more interactive. Next week we are away on a School Camp and as soon as we return things should be back to normal... I'll be returning to my Shop in Cobar town for Friday and Saturday, while Monday to Thursday will be School on the farm... 

So here's hoping you've had a fantastic start to the first School Term for 2012 with your little ones - we've been reading lots of 'Pamela Allen' books and enjoying many an old fashioned nursery rhyme....
