I do enjoy linking up with Peg and Kris for this "one project a month" as it's good to be able to look back and see what's been achieved during the year. Of course I've also been keeping up with my two BOM's but since they are a block each month the projects won't be actually finished till the end of the year! The 3rd pattern is just out for down the rabbit hole as it get released the very last day of the month, so I'm currently working on cutting out little leaves for the flowers - I'll show you during the week sometime.
This weekend gone we had daughter and partner come for a quick visit while they were up from Melbourne to attend a christening. With the cold weather now beginning I gave John the beanie I made up for him in January and he was thrilled with it! A very good reaction and he's planning to wear it to and from work!
For those wondering if I've started attacking that load of cotton yarn that arrived last week ....... well, of course I have lol ......... I've begun work on a crochet ripple blanket for our youngest grandchild Jaxson in Bubblegum Crush, Orange and Lime Crush which were his chosen colours!

I fell for some magazines during the week and finally got to sit on the front veranda over the
weekend with a cuppa and begin having a bit of a read of them. I'm really missing us not having our vegie patch - not much point with the house on the market ...... however a pumpkin vine has decided to grow in one of the patches which is kinda nice to have them covered in something! It has quite big leaves compared to the normal pumpkin vine that has been growing here. It's growing so fast that it already has a few decent sized pumpkins that can be seen growing! I'm wondering if it's a Jap or maybe a Queensland Blue ..... guess I'll find out soon enough lol
That's it for me given this is the third time for writing this,..... I'm feeling a little despondent the past few days so I sure hope that passes soon - at least this week is my "short" working week so I'll get more days at home later in the week to get things done.
