I was thinking how much more can this corner of the world cope with? Fires, Floods, Cyclones and now Earthquake across the Tasman. Thoughts for all as you get your lives back together.
We had about 66mm rain in 24 hours on Friday - a welcome gift when you live on rainwater tanks. Farmers may not be happy, but we have no control over what the weather and nature dishes out to us.
Today is our 31st Wedding Anniversay - a milestone where divorce is commonplace. I'm happy to be married to someone who tolerates fabric, wool & threads so well about the house (and it's just as well coz there's so much of it)
Enjoy your day

|Bella Baby 'Sugar' 4 ply|
We had so much rain last week, that the ground is still soft. Not that I'm complaining, asit's watered my trees & shrubs in nicely & I can see grass slowly coming up (and probably the weeds too). Such wierd weather we seem to be having.......
Enjoy your week....

Tuesday, 8 February 2011
I've had a painful few days - tooth needing a root canal, but nothing compared to the floods, fires, blizzards etc around the world - just feeling sorry for me.
Finally finished this jacket. It's not for me, but a friend (hope she enjoys wearing it). Was fun to crochet, but I always like to see things go to their new home.

|Baby bootees in 3ply|
I ended up with the baby yarn from my late mother in law. This lot is in 3 ply, as there's mainly just odd balls, probably enough for 1 to 2 pairs of bootees, then I'll need to do colour matching. I did try to get some more 3 ply in Spotlight, but noticed they had almost none, (lots of 4 ply), so I grabbed some.
Why am I making bootees? Am starting a bit of a stash for daughters & their friends - thought it would save some time when I get asked again & then I have assorted colours depending on gender etc. The top row is in wool and the bototm row is in Nylon - I much prefer the wool - so soft & really nice to work with - & should wash well too.
The big quilt I'm working on keeps running low on sewing cotton & I have to wait for more to come in - so pictures will be a week or so (at least) away.
That's it for now - thoughts to those in any part of the world affected by crazy weather.
Bye for Now
