Well this past week has been quite busy and, although I'm still awaiting my delivery of Stylecraft Special DK (maybe today, I tell myself every morning), these hands have not been idle! I didn't want to start anything on a large scale, for that will happen when the new yarn arrives, so instead a couple of little personalities jumped off my crochet hook just to keep me 'employed'.
Well, yes, employed probably is the correct word because I've had requests recently for more of these little fellas. Would you like to have a look? Same as I've done before but different colours - well we much have changes of colour mustn't we!
And as you can see I tried my hand at a pin-cushion too, which I'm quite pleased with; it'll serve it's purpose I expect!
Yesterday, being Sunday and a lovely morning weather wise, we took off on a drive to an area near Albany, Western Australia which has become another of our favourite spots: it's part of one of the popular walks for folks around here who enjoy taking in nature - called The Luke Penman Walk - after the Doctor by that name who did a lot of botanical studies in this locality during his lifetime but, sadly, died at a young age. It's such a beautiful spot to relax and unwind.
And of course, for me, the water views are sheer magic!
I did take some pics from the 'billboard' at the carpark entrance to this lovely area and I expect if you click on these they should enlarge and allow you to read the information, or part of it! I hope so!
Gosh, I do hope this hasn't bored you 'out of your brain' as they say!
Our younger daughter had her birthday on 1st May - May Day - and here are pics of just a little of her birthday 'stash,' and the Raspberry Chocolate Torte that has become a big favourite around our place - for special occasions only of course!!! Oh yeah?
I hope I haven't overloaded you with pics this time, and I do apologise if the taste buds are cranking up after feasting your eyes on that cake? Mine are because I haven't had lunch yet - but - lunch will wait a tad longer because - guess what - my lovely yarn has just been delivered - oh I love our parcel postie - so I'm off to open up those bags and spill all that lovely colour out all over the place. Then I'll take pics to show you next time!
Have a great week and happy crafting!
