...it's a good day to do a catch up post
Due to the migraine, I had to cancel my haircut on Monday (What!?! You're getting it cut again?!?!) and helping out at the hymn singalong at Kanangra (aged care facility) on Tuesday, but was up to going to Latrobe and Devonport with Marnie yesterday for an appointment she had and also some shopping. So while I was waiting for her I browsed the op shops and picked up a quilting hoop and a book (The Quilt), then to the patchwork/craft shop (will try and remember to take a photo next time) for buttons for Hazel's cardigan (but couldn't decide between the green and the wooden ones, so will see which look best when I get it sewn up), and some yarn for a new (oh dear!) project. I'd only gone in for the buttons, but you know how it is, or maybe you don't, but I know how it is for me, and I couldn't resist! It's pure wool (from Bendigo Woollen Mills but this store in Latrobe stock it) so I bought 3 balls of Bloom. The colourway is called Spring (in anticipation of), and I thought of crocheting a blanket, but when I started it last night I found the yarn would often split and also the variegations did not show up as well with the crocheting, so have decided to knit diagonal (mindless) squares. It's really nice to knit with and I like the way you can see the colour graduations...
I also bought some parsley at the nursery to plant in the garden as I expand my herbs. Now have mint, sage, rosemary, bay and parsley.
Still working on my crocheted blanket and reading (along with about 5 other books) this David Bercot book...
and browsing the latest Victoria mag
And here's one Anushka sent through to me recently of little Jaya (now 7 weeks old) taken while they were out walking...
obviously his dreams are sweet with the little smile on his lips :)
Hoping life is sweet for you too!
