What have I been doing?


This is a beanie I had promised #2 child. The first one I made was a little tight so it went to #3 and I knitted a slightly larger one. It is a little hard a gauge the finished fitting size but it all worked out well.


This is a little baby cap I made a little while ago.


After loving the red baby cap I wanted to make one for my brothers baby ( yes I am going to be an aunt, woooowhooo) but wouldnt you know it I could not find the same wool again. I will post a photo later of the new blue one. So instead I have been making these baby socks. Now I know what to do with all those little bits of left over sock wool.

New member of the family


There is a new member to our extended family. My mum has got a new puppy. It has been 18 months since their beloved spike drowned outside their house. He was a very old kelpie who had gone deaf and blind.
Now there is a new and energetic little bundle of doggie energy in their house.
He is the cutest little thing, and little is the word . He is a cross between a mini fox terrier and a shitzu.
When he is fully vacinated I will be able to have him over for play dates with my boys. Cant wait.

hens in a row


After reading the lovely willows blog a while ago I decided to have a go at making her coney dogs. But of course I needed to do a little tweeking to them to accomodate my family. I used veggie sausages and a kangaroo sausage and a chicken sausage. I also made a bean/tomato sauce for the vego dog. With all these changes I am really happy to say that they went down really well. Thankyou Willow.

This has been the view out my bedroom window lately. I have not worked out why these native hens choose to sit in a row like this but it looks rather cute, and atleast while hey sit they are quiet. If you have never heard a native hen then let me tell you they are loud and are best described as a squeeky bed spring, over and over and over. Hmm they look good sound horrible.
