Progress...


...on the garage and woodshed...

 nearly finished




After much rain, and the river rising, the swan's nest was only just above water level...
 council workers raised the nest level with some hay


The river levels are down again now...

 see the eggs!!



On the Yarn Along front...
 hats for Haiti



Still reading The Girl Who Played With Fire (it's a big book...570 pages!!!)

Knitting beanies for Etsy and browsing my new mag from last week...


Spring is in the air!!

  1. Agree you can feel that Spring is close! Love seeing the eggs - we have lots of black swans around here, but no nests insight that I've seen. Do you get your mags from the library??

    1. Hi Sharm! I think I spoke too soon about spring. Rain, rain, rain here today :(.

      Re. the mags...I do borrow some, but they only get an Aust. home, gardening and food one at Deloraine library, so I tend to buy as well...probably too well :)) xx

    1. Hi Michelle! Getting there with the garage, although it is taking longer than they thought :(

      It looked like the swan had abandoned the nest yesterday, but she was back on it today, although there appears to be only 4 eggs now. xx
