Knitted Coat

this is my version of the pattern shown below....
just using up some old wool gifted to me....
and the little ones found some patchwork pieces....
and put them to good use in the dolls house....
as mats....

Alphabet Cushion Cover

A very retro alphabet fabric passed on to me from Simonne. Now a pretty cushion cover with ric-rac trim.
Bedside table, a kerbside throwaway.
White lace doily, op shop find.

Pay It Forward Day

Life has been in our way.....but we have been creating in our spare time.
Simonne has been stitching lots of patchwork quilts & bags, & hooking yarn into rugs & bunnies.
I am trying to transform blank canvases into something else & when that doesn't quite work out I just re do an old painting, as the one above. A watercolour made over with crayon.

As today is Pay It Forward Day I would like to say a thank you to Rebecca from, & share her link with you.

 Rebecca is taking orders for 'prayer flags' to raise money for OXFAM for Nepal.

You will find more information at 'Naughty shorts' on Facebook.

As the rain is falling & darkness closing in I am so grateful for the comfort of my home, but also feel so sad for all the people who  will be trying to sleep under tarps & tents or maybe in the open tonight & for many nights to come.

Summer Is Here!

 some favourite flowers......hydrangea......
 a spiky sweet smelling flower of mother-in-laws-tongue.....
 white hibiscus, grown from a cutting......
 an oldy but always have geraniums in my garden.
 & now for a bit of hard working husband transformed this ugly overgrown corner of our backyard, with a bit of help from me.....
 cleared all the weeds, levelled the ground....started the fence.....
 rocks for the bottom of the fence & garden edges.....
 put in new  steps up to the existing deck....
 built a new bar table from scrap timber.....
when all the construction work was done i planted the garden.
i think my husband could change from sales to landscaping.
