Merry Christmas all :))

Merry Christmas blogging friends..
Today this beautiful gift of a Christmas cake was delivered to us ...

Our friends on the Eastcoast of Tasmania made 40 cakes this year.
Not only  do they make cakes, they will have 30 people for Christmas lunch.. To me this is Christmas Giving..

Thank you to all the people who donate their time to work the soup kitchens around the Christian world.    Merry Christmas to all :))

Evandale Market and Killiecrankie Farm

After a night of heavy rain and damaging winds, the sun managed to smile through on the folk and their wares at the Evandale market today..
Hubby found a uke and I found Lee. I had read on her blog, that she would have a stall today, so being so close , we had to call in and say "Hi" to Lee and her mum..
The wind was playing havoc with all the stalls and keeping things in place was a job on its own.
I have had the pleasure of meeting a couple of cyber friends from the mainland over the past couple of years, and I have to say  what a pleasure it was to meet Lee and her mum.. It adds another dimension to blogging..

Christmas Bunting

I made my Christmas Bunting today.
4 large , 3 small..So quick to crochet too :))
I was looking through a couple of blogs I follow
here and Scotties here and I wanted to make something like the buntings they had already made... I liked the way they were hanging outside, the happy colours took my eye so into my stash to look for Xmas colours .

I am really pleased with the outcome.. thanks ladies :))

Log Cabin crochet rug

Log Cabin Crochet....I found a great blog on the net Dutch Girl Diary. The picture and a pattern of a pot holder can be found by clicking here  When I saw this rug I had to make it ,.. You know you get that feeling of .. nothing will stop me now, a must have, yes, you know what I mean??
The white yarn is actually , what I call a cacky green.. One more row and it will be complete..
Having said that, it is quite small. Possibly because the yarn I used is an( Aus) 8ply  and used a 4mm hook .It only measures 24 ".. But it would make a lovely dolly blanket or maybe for a little dog I know..
Thanks for stopping by, don't forget to leave me a message, I love to get them.. Hope you have a blessed week.. :))

Girls Day Out :))

Today is girls day out,My friend Tina 
and I have been getting together for a couple of years now, some times we go out for lunch and shop, or stay in and crochet..
The sun is out at the moment, so we may just go and take a peek at Spotlight, they are having a great sale on wool and cottons at the moment..
There is a granny pattern I would like to make.. I found it Here.
I will need to buy more yarn, (music to my ears ) as my stash has diminished greatly. :))
I have been trying out the Queen Anne's Lace scarf.. I must say it is addictive.. crochets up so quickly, a few more gifts in the stocking .
