Catching up

Hello.  Once again it has been a long time since I posted on here so I thought I'd do a catch up post.

The usual things have been going on in life as they do and my days have been filled with crafting either knitting socks or crocheting blankets.  The garden is there waiting for me to get into when the weather warms up but for Melbourne this takes quite a while.  
We bought a second hand caravan from good friends several months ago so have been enjoying planning our first weekend away which is happening soon.  I'll hopefully have photos to share.  In the meantime here are a few of the things I've been getting up to.


Hubby and I enjoyed a day out visiting the Yarra Valley Dairy, one of our favourite places.

 
We saw the Wedge tailed eagle in the distance while there.



I made these bed socks for Mum.  Not quite a perfect fit.


Enjoying the colours of some sock yarn I ordered.

A skein of sock wool I hand dyed using camellia petals, melaleuca bark beetroot tops.
Knitting of socks in progress.

 
 


More socks.  This pair went to Genevieve.
  

Enjoying some colour in the garden.


Hubby and I cutting down branches from the old pear tree in the back yard.  Sadly the tree was diseased and all the wet weather didn't help so down she came.

Working on a stripey throw. Pattern found here.  Using colours from Lucy of Attic 24 cosy pack.



Five jars of yummy home made corn relish.  Delicious with a cheese melted toastie.

Rainbow lorikeets visiting this weekend.  The might be colourful but they are noisy and agressive, not my favourite parrot.



See you soon,

Anne  xx

Wow Anne - you have been busy. Great to see how productive you have been over winter. All that knitting and crocheting, timberfelling and cooking - and the eating out looks pretty good too! cheers Wendy
