Weekending

1. I'm over half way now on Emerson's Camilla Blanket and I am still in love with knitting it. It is my biggest project to date and I was worried I would fall out of love with it along the way. So far so good. I love watching those fans forming.The nights are getting cooler now and I hope she'll be using it by Winter.

2. We've had a week of rain, with another week forecast. There has been Lego, play dough and balloons to keep a certain boy amused, as well as rain coat and gum boot jaunts in the garden.

3. We visited the Qld Art Gallery and the Museum yesterday. Another perfect rainy day activity. I brought this $10 print home with me from the gallery store. Cheap, beautiful art. (The framed picture in photo 2 is another gallery store purchase.)

4. My cheeky little laundry helpers, who played 'throw the cloth nappies at Mama' and rolled around laughing.

5. My veggie-store-brought sweet potatoes sprouted, so I'm growing slips from them. I recently harvested my first sweet potatoes from the garden and I'm hoping for an even bigger harvest next time!

6. Cut flowers from the garden. My dream of filling the house with flowers I've grown is slowly becoming a reality.

7. And they smell amazing.

8. These delightful roses change from pink, to peach, to yellow as they open.

My second eye surgery is today. Hopefully I will be able to be back in this space in a couple of days. In the meantime take care.

  2. Lovely photos. The blanket is amazing Christina and I can see now that it is laid out like that, that it is a VERY big project - she will love her big-girl blanket. Good luck for surgery today. Mel x

  4. Beautiful photos, your Emerson's blanket looks amazing, I've been making a granny blanket very slowly for the past two years so I can appreciate what challenge it can be. In my garden in the UK we have similar Rose that works in reverse to your one, ours goes from yellow to peach/orange to pink.I think it's a Florabunda Rose. I hope you're surgery goes well.
    best wishes

  8. Emerson's blanket is simply beautiful, the colour and the pattern are great together. You have done so much already, I'm sure it will be done in time for winter here. I wish you all the best too, for your next surgery.

  10. That blanket is just beautiful...I am sure she will cherish it for years to come.
    I love your step cabinet...we have one too but it is bare due to a certain climbing toddler!

    I hope your surgery went well today.
    At least you have the operations behind you and now can just focus on recovery.
