Lots to love

This weekend there has been plenty to enjoy...like this jar of mixed haberdashery & assorted bits it's been a treasure trove of goodness. Some of the things I've loved have been....

..last minute cuddles with daughter number one before she headed off on the big Drama class trip to New York City. That's her in the green cardie. (There's been quite a few tears from her mum over the last twenty four hours as the reality of her actually leaving has hit. She's So Far AWAY!)

Special finds from our local Sunday Market...a gorgeous grey alpaca scarf ($3!!!), two dear little tins for pins & sewing bits, a lovely loaf of Red Beard bread and how about this amazing jar of goodies?! Can't wait to open it and see what's in there.




Two footy fans heading off to watch the Lions with Dad. How exciting! (I can forgive Bill for having the Wrong jumper on..just this once though William!) Daughters three & four stayed home with mama which was fun too. (Hey, it's a bit quieter with only two! just a bit though...)


Learning to crochet (again) granny squares via the fantastic Attic 24's tutorial (and watching The Bill, FROM THE START!!!) Wow. I am loving making the squares and I think I finally have the hang of it. This lot is destined to be a warm, winter blanket for daughter number three.


And finally this sweet present. The colours of the granny squares remind me of this pretty potted plant from daughter number two as a thankyou for a happy birthday. Aww...! Hope your weekend was fun too x

Oh good luck with your girl away. I am sure she will be having a ball and missing you badly.
I love the finds at the markets...that is the best feeling...xx

I love the colors of your granny squares and they do look just like your geranium!! My heart goes out to you missing your daughter. I'm just contemplating sending mine to a six night sleepaway girl scout camp this summer. I can't imagine the pains when it's a BIG trip. I'll be thinking of you.

Oh hugs for the lonely Mama! It only takes one missing element doesn't it? She will be fine and safe and on an adventure, all the good and sense you have put into her will come into play and keep her safe. Before you know it she will be back in the fold and planning her next move!

Yep you have got the hang of those squares, looking good! Checkout the "granny squares pool"on flicker, so may great ideas
