I'd love for you to pop on over and check out the gorgeous shades of Silky Merino, Sock, Rios and Arroyos - all by Malabrigo and if you do please tell me what you think, I love feedback!!!!
I also think I now know why I've been on such a lull for the past couple of months... Here at the 'Weekes' family we are very excited to be welcoming a new addition - Yes that means that I'm expecting bub #3, can you believe it???

I'm 3 months pregnant and am feeling a little nauseous - I can definitely say that this time 'round I'm having 'day long' sickness and not just sickness in the morning, blrrr.... Hopefully by week 20 all will be good...

time and time again.....

There's something about the Queen Anne Scarf that keeps drawing me back in, time and time again... For this blue version, that I made as a gift for Connie's dance teacher, I used Malabrigo Rios. I love the way that this gorgeous family owned company kettle dyes their yarn - the variegation's are simply divine...

Some more crochet : : I've had the picture of the little stars below stuck on my SLR camera since early December of last year.... A bunch of these little treasures were packed inside a very plump envelope and posted out to my loved ones with their Xmas cards last year... The pattern was by the very talented Lucy of Attic 24 - and what a bonus it's a freebie!!! I used Debbie Bliss DK Cotton for my stars - the shades in this range are deliciously vibrant, perfect for making a statement on your Xmas tree or for something even better - hang them on a door knob all year 'round!!!

I'm spending more and more time out in the garden these days - with Autumn settled in and the temperatures slowly declining I'm enjoying re-potting some succulent and Aloe Vera pups....

I have this stuff EVERYWHERE!!!! I love how it doesn't need much water to keep it alive, you can neglect it for months and it will fend for itself and every time you turn around it produces lovely little pup's ready for the transplanting - now that's my kind of gardening!!!

Here's hoping you've had a glorious Autumn weekend where you are...
