The birthday girl with my 3 kids..
But I toughened up, packed the car, bought the kids a toy each and some new colouring books and off we headed.. a 2 night stay out in the nether regions of Dandenong and we have survived, we saw the animals, we blew out the candles and of course we saw lots of roadworks (which are a highlight to a 2 year old who has been raised driving diggers and bobcats!)
I didnt get to the Sisters market which was on the wish list, but after 3 hours at the zoo, the kids were asleep before I drove out of the carpark.
The highlight was seeing a baboon with a bottom that looked like a rainbow, and also a monkey that scratched his bum and then sniffed his finger.. (continually!)
Now this week, once I catch up on the washing from the 3 days away, I plan to make a pincushion, designed by the one and only Dear Fii....

I have had no luck locating a size Q hook but I am still working on it. I have had to modify the patterns a bit to get them large enough (due to the hook size issue) and finally, I have hit jackpot.... I have changed a stitch in the brim that makes it easier to find the doubling spot (blah blah blah, It matters to me only I think).. But here are some pictures of my recent crochet creations.. Oh and the flowers are blooming all over the place..
Now this little model , has no idea that his sisters are hiding behind the couch giggling their heads off, but my early attempts would only fit his head...

Time out for me!! - I decided it was high time to sort through the stash and trim some bits for a very special project... While sorting and snipping I found some long forgotten bits and pieces You know when you see it on the roll at the store and think of all these great ideas and just HAVE TO HAVE IT>>>> But I was inspired to make the girls some buntings for their bedroom walls.
We traced the letters, she ironed them on and along we went in a sea of pink...
I have stopped momentarily to refill the biscuit barrell..
Meanwhile here is a sneak peek at the nearly finished Audrey top..
These two tops are only my test sew items, I hope to make them in a linen blend in several colours.. though it probably wont happen in the holidays I am guessing.. Then I hope someone wants to buy them!
It is very difficult to sew whilst counting for the skipping rope or resolve arguments over who had which texta first!!
