I Actually Miss Blogging!

Well got the tittle of my post done but now sitting here going what the he** am I gonna write about!

I realised last night that I actually miss blogging, not that I was ever the most prolific blogger around and I am sure my posts are not the most riveting that anyone has read but I have realised that I miss putting an idea, rant, finished project out there - ha ha finished project yeah I bet you are all saying "having seen one of them in a while" LOL. I am currently having a bout of startitis, not sure if I want to crochet, knit or cross stitch, I should really be getting the sewing machine out but the amount of energy needed to wipe the dust off it is just not worth it.

Well it is Friday in my little part of the world and I will soon be setting off for home and once there, it might just be wine o'clock and I can sit down and watch episode 4 (?) of Outlander. I am currently recording these and saving them as I have been watching them each week but interruptions abound in my house so I am saving them to rewatch in November when I will home alone for a week, oh apart from the dogs but they enjoy watching tv with me LOL. Oh and one more thing I look forward to on a Friday night is getting the groceries delivered, yes I have jumped on this bandwagon and love it, no more fighting over the last lettuce, specials being sold out, I just order online and it gets delivered to my door....... (happy sigh with glass of wine in hand)

So where ever you read my blog from I will be returning to try and post more regularly but until my next post Ciao :)

Amazing What You Can Achieve On a Cold Wintery Weekend

Yes winter is coming (sorry couldn't resist a GoT reference LOL) and with it comes the crystal clear cold days, and what does one do on these days, why get out early get the chores done and then sit in front of the heater, watch DVD's and finish off some crafty stuff that has been lying around for a few weeks.

No 1 achievement was finishing off my Kindle cover..... used Lily Sugar N Cream cotton yarn. The Sugar N Cream was purchased from HERE

No 2  knit a scarf from ruffle yarn - this yarn also came from the same place as I got the cotton from for my Kindle cover.

No 3 continued on my current cross stitch project - Glendon Place "Franks Family Portrait", stitched on 28ct Pumpkin Flambe from

Quick Update

Well the cooler weather has arrived with a bang. We had decent rain for the first time in months over the weekend and this morning it was 8deg C when I got up. Brrrr.

We are heading over to Melbourne on Friday for a long weekend, catching up with the many friends that now live over there, hitting a couple of AFL games and fingers crossed some shopping. I probably only have Sunday morning to myself but that is enough to send the boys off and give me some me time to hit the stores.

Here is an update of my Lizzie Kate Mystery Sampler as of last weekend. I have now retired it to the "purple basket of works in progress" and pulled out something else that I have had sitting around unfinished for years (photo to come of this later :) )
