Crochet Update

Not too much to report on the crochet front this week.  The weather up until yesterday had  still been quite hot and humid.  Not the best weather for crochet.  Today the rain has been falling with more forecast over the weekend.  Bliss!


My garden enjoying the lovely rain!

I did manage to get a few rows done over the last week and hopefully I’ll get a chance to add to it over the cooler weekend.  I sat in front of the Winter Olympics and worked a few rows.  I was actually trying to absorb some of the cold snowy weather to cool myself down.  Unfortunately that didn’t work.


Looking like a clam shell!  Poor rainy day dark light photo!

Not too much longer now until Autumn arrives.  Hopefully the weather will start to cool down too!





Crochet WIP

Have I ever been enjoying working on this new blanket of mine.  There’s nothing like the rhythmic row after row of crocheting.  It is the perfect project for watching a little telly at night or squeezing in a few spare moments in the morning before work.

Here it is…


I’m hoping to make this a quick project so I can over to my little friend.  I know she will love it!



A Little Tour of Our Own City

The weather yesterday in Brisbane was wet and cool.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining at all.  Friday’s temperature was the coolest February day we have had since 1961!  It made a nice change from the heat and humidity we’ve been having.

Anyways, with the wet weather there wasn’t a whole lot of outside work able to be done.  Yes there is always plenty of inside things to do, but we decided a day out in our own city would be a nice way to spend a few wet, rainy, cool hours.

A New Crochet Project

I haven’t done any crochet in soooo long!  I’ve missed it.  It dawned on me over the summer holidays that crochet would now be my favourite type of crafting.  It’s normally something I can do anywhere anytime, just so portable.

Living in the subtropics in Australia, there really is only so many crochet blankets or quilts (another favourite thing of mine) our household needs.  I think I maxed out the need long ago.  So how do I  fulfil my need to crochet?

Summer Holiday Round Up

This last week saw me return to work after a long and relaxing holiday.  The first few weeks are always busy with organising and celebrating the Christmas period, but after that it’s all about relaxing.

Hubby also had a couple of weeks off this summer, so we were able to get away together.  Of course this was spent in our camper trailer!

Home renovations

Living in a ninety-one year old home there is always work going on.  We’ve been in this house for twenty-four years now and we have never painted it!  As we are planning on moving to our Cootharaba property in the next couple of years the time has come to get serious about finishing off this house.

Happy New Year!!!

During the last week, between Christmas and New Year, we spent a few nights up at our property.  It had been quite a few weeks since our last visit.  We follow the weather there and knew we had received quite a bit of rain.  We were quite certain the grass would be long and in desperate need of attention.
