Opp Shopping

While my daughter was here, we did one of our favourite things Opp Shopping! these are my bargains. This wonderful book was only $3.00. Some really lovely fresh country looks in this book.
This cushion insert, brand new, I will be able to use as filling for toys. Much needed at the moment until I can go to the Pillow Factory to buy a large bag.

Charity Makes for 2011

Crochet blanket a hat and booties and currently working on a jacket to match. The Jacket will have the blues and purples in it too. Notice the background? A long awaited and much needed new ironing board cover, Lovely and bright.


I have been absent from blogging for a while, and this is the reason, My daughter came down from where she lives near Bathurst. She drove down all by herself. She has gone back home now and is back home safe and sound, driving such a long way, 9 hours with breaks. My nieces daughter was Christened this Sunday and it was such a lovely special event. The weather was perfect!
This is one of the things i made her, a wrap over cardi with crochet trim. I was unable to finish it on time cos on one sleeve the wool is not the same colour! A caution to those who knit at night. look at the yarn carefully. I had made two pairs of booties and a pair of mittens that i was able to give her on the day. I just have to re do the sleeve then i can give this to her too.
