Well its the weekend again YAY!
What have i been doing for the last couple of weeks? Hmmmm???
I have been knitting scarves. I have used Moda Vera's Honeycomb mesh and it only takes one ball to make this gorgeous scarf. Here is the pattern and a pic of a pink one
 I've made 5 so far. 4 for girls at work and one for myself ( mine is Cookies and Cream)  I have 2 more to make. another one for me and a black one for my daughter.

I've been to Sydney with hubby and friends and had a great time. I took my new friend Billie
My daughter bought her back form Tasmanian for me just a few days b3efore we flew to Sydney so i thought Everyone takes a Gnome or something to take silly pics so I'll take Billie!!!  hahahaha
Hubby thought I was nuts but he got in one the fun and so did our friends.
While we were walking through Sydney we past a lane way and I saw these hanging from two buildings. I think it is such a beautiful idea in such an unusual place.
That was two weeks ago and its just back to normal again. Well as normal as life can get.

Thanks for taking the time to look, take care. xx

May nearly at the end

Hello everyone.
Can't believe its been over a month since I last posted.
so lets see what we got up to in April
Iwas lucky enough to win Toni's Digi Challenge at Jellybeanscrappers with this LO (above). The Challenge was to do a European style LO using white space and lots of embellishments. Toni is our esteamed leader over at Jellybeanscrappers.

I also won this Challenge. Kym's Sketch challenge (a very talented young lady). the challenge apart from the sketch was to give it a heritage look. The photo is of my mum and dad on their wedding day in March 1961.  I used to play dress ups in her wedding dress which looking back at it know i would have loved to have worn it on my wedding day.

This photo was taken at Grant Burge winery up at the Barossa Valley.  We had my gorgeous
Sister-in-law and brother-in-law come stay with us the week after Easter and we all went up to Peter lehmanns winery for a Ploughmans lunch. We stopped here on the way through Its amazing how a couple of months can change the look of this area.  The year before hubby and I took my cousin to this same spot and i took this pic

The lunch at Peter Lehmanns was just beautiful so was the company
Noriel (on the right) & I enjoying a bottle of Peter Lehmann Princess wine.

And the empty bottle.
So that was a few things that happend in April.

Thanks for taking the time to look, take care. xx
