Carnival is in....
Spring holiday around here is busy busy busy.... last weekends lovely stitching and this weekend is gardens...
Although there is still a horrible drought the flower festival brings in a lot of income for the city so water is pumped in ...
These poppies were outside the Information Centre... of course our local bees are very happy at this time of year
They also had these lovely beds of pansies....
Meantime my lovely stitching cushion has had to be retired.....
you can see why …. it's very tired and most of the stitching is no longer there!
This cushion was made in a round robin stitch-a-long that I did many years ago.... and made lifelong friends as a result
Note to the lovers of EPP - the hexagons have held up very well!
In my own garden the Dendrodiums (spelling) are looking wonderful... such a lovely show - well done to Hubz the gardener
Hubz had some business in Brisbane so I was able to hitch a ride and go and spend a few hours with Michelle... here we are in front of some of her wonderful art
Car journeys have meant some knitting has been done and a second penguin jumper is completed
… and whilst I was with Michelle, and of course many other evenings I have been working on getting more postcards stitched
I only have 4 more to stitch.... but of course lots of blocks to put together
My son and his youngest daughter are coming to visit in November.... little Miss 4 nearly 5 Grandiegirl has not been before and she (with help from her Mum) made up this lovely date caterpillar. She can tear off a circle every day to see how many more sleeps to go.
I'm a bit excited! It's almost 3 years since a cuddle.
Righto, Gotto Go... cuppa time. Hubz and I visited more places today so I need to sort some pictures.
