It has been a while

Gosh it has been nearly a month since I last posted, can’t believe that has whizzed by so quickly.  Over the pond has had lots of snow and we have had and are still having very nasty bush fires down south and it is flooding up North, what a time!

I have finished the second baby blanket and the proud pop picked it up on Saturday, he was very pleased with it, so pleased that he gave me more for it than I asked as he appreciated the time it took.

tn_Baby BlanketIt has a bit of a pink tinge, but was just the camera and night photo taking.  I also made a little something for the baby, idea taken from here I popped a little bell into the middle and had a lot of fun making it.

tn_Baby toyI have started a toy for my granddaughter called Janet Smith, from the Janet Smith Can’t Knit book bought from the lovely Suzie

tn_Janet SmithWith instructions to knit it in Raspberry pink with a pale pink and white dress with a pink and white polka dot butterfly button on it….

tn_FunnyHow could you so no to that! haha, she is such a funny kid, I had her Friday early morning until late Saturday afternoon.  We made play doh, and salt dough hearts that she painted and took home (didn’t take pic) we made pom poms and pop corn and we had lunch with my work colleagues, she had fun and so did I.  We have Australia day here this weekend and have today off (Monday), because I don’t work Fridays and Tuesdays I am having 5 days of holidays…happy dance!


I went here for a couple of days during my Christmas break, it belongs to my ex hubby, so I went down when Kaila was there, she stayed for almost two weeks, it was so lovely to get down to the sea and it was HOT 40 deg!


A couple of little jugs in the bathroom cabinet at the beach house, so sweet.

tn_PressyMy mum had a birthday, a big cup and saucer pot plant holder and a bunch of flowers.

tn_High TI made a High Tea, Red Velvet Cup Cakes, Brownies, Buttermilk Scones and Cucumber Sandwiches, was delicious.

tn_ShoesRed Suede shoes were bought, oh my how I love these and so comfy.

tn_Hearts A little bit of this was started, must finish.

tn_Cross stitchThis was purchased to Cross Stitch this……

tn_Robin CSHow sweet, I am in love with Robin Redbreasts. I also bought some material to do a spot of embroidery on, will show that next time.

Till then, take care all, sending hugs and kisses.

Sandi xoxo

    Hello Sandi
    I know just how you feel because it seemed like only yesterday when I read this your latest post and thought to myself I’ll leave a comment later and look now its 10 days later!!! Dear me time so flies by! I see you have been very busy on the craft side of things. The baby’s blanket is lovely and is that a rattle you have made for the baby too? I shall have to pop in and have a look at that pattern it looks like something ideal for a little present for a student of mine who is expecting her first. I whizzed past the pic of your mother’s birthday feast much too yummy!!!

    Groan! I could do with a break away to a place like that ………lucky you!

    keep well

    Amanda 🙂

    there’s a robin nesting in the roof of Bruce’s stable- each evening around 5 he hops in, sings us a lovely song and then goes to bed.
    Each morning he’s ready and waiting to see what grain the horses might’ve spilt from their brakfasts so he can peck it up.
    Greetings on a very rainy Sunday morning
