 Again the flood in Aus is still making its way down to Victoria with devastating consequences.Today Swan Hill .. Our prayers are with you ..

 Australia Crochet and it's dedicated members are busy making granny squares for the folk of Queensland.. The squares (to be made into rugs) will be sent to Sarah London via blog owner of Hooks and Grannies.. So it looks like my hook is going to be very busy..

Mug coasters..

I first saw these coasters over at Lee's
They looked so lovely I had to make a couple.

Happy New to everyone... Wow hasn't it been busy.
Our home has been a happy place, with family coming and going. Grandchildren playing in the yard, and we were lucky enough to have the sun shine.
