Anyhow, its nice to go for a drive and look at our new area - lots of sugar cane currently in flower whilst other cane is getting cut and transported to the mill - took these photos on our way
I've been a few times now to meet up with some of the other girls down at the sewing shop - attended
the club meeting last Saturday where they showed us how to make a quick scarf - knowing I had some fabric that would likely work well - I gave it a try and am pleased with the results, while the colour doesn't suit me, it will work as a gift for somebody else!
I also pulled out the hexies from ages ago!!!
Last Wednesday during the sewing morning I found a
little purse pattern using hexies so naturally I purchased the pattern and have spent some time this morning working on making up some hexies ready to begin this project which I think will make some lovely little gifts!! It occured to me that it just might be EPP week with Anthea from Hibiscus Stitches which it is, so I'm linking up with her to share the EPP love! It's been rather nice pulling out my little material bits to make up some hexies with them!
|Yarn Cupboard is now sorted|
Evenings are seeing me continue work on the cardigan ........ the knitting of the band seems like an endless task as each row currently takes around 30mins to complete due to the huge number of stitches sitting on the circular needles!! I think I only have about 5 or 6 rows left of the band - Hooray!! Then just one sleeve to knit up after that and it will be done!
I've begun the process of putting in some applications for work - hoping to just pick up a couple of days a week - 3 at most is really all I want but it depends on what turns up .......
in the meantime, I'm enjoying setting things up in our house ........ which is very much feeling rather homely already! I'm really enjoying getting back to doing some baking (biscuits and a lemon slice yesterday)
and I wouldn't mind making a batch of lemon butter a bit later. I'm really enjoying this slower pace of life again, and the easy good nature attitude of everyone we seem to come in contact with here! And I've been pleasantly surprised yesterday by a kookaburra coming into the yard for a visit with us! Naturally I threw him a couple of goodies and he was happy enough to hang around for a couple of photo shoots lol At some point I'll begin doing more in the garden and get a few herbs growing and things that bring the birds and bees in for a visit and provide some fragrance and flowers for us to enjoy ....... all in good time!
