We’ve had a tough couple of weeks with all of us getting the dreaded gastro. One of the worst bits about this virus is seeing your loved ones be so sick – all the time knowing that it is a ‘sure thing’ that you’ll be suffering likewise sooner or later.
But we are all good now and I’m ready to face my uncompleted projects:
Clockwise from top left
1) Little granny sqare blanket. I’ve just got to finish stitching the rows together! My aim is to have this done in the next couple of days so I can dispatch it off to the newest baby on the block 🙂 It’s small, but just right for keeping a newborn toasty in a pram, bassinette or carseat.
2) Two skirts. The same A-Line skirt pattern as before. All that’s left on these is the closures and the hem of the polka dot skirt. I think I’ve nearly come to the end of my enthusiasm for this skirt pattern and it’s time to move on…. maybe a to a tunic style top.
3) Latch Hook Rug. Last Saturday (just before I got sick), I took an Adult Ed class with Jo Wild – latch hooker. I made a start in class and will continue once I’ve got the crochet project finished. More on this later!!!
4) Linoprinting. Me and my friend Kate have planned a linocutting/printing playdate for tommorow 🙂 I love my creative friends!
In other news, Jasper started at ‘Family Day Care’ last week. I am very ready for some respite after nearly 15 months. So once a week he gets to spend 6 hours with a nice lady and some other children and I get to do whatever the hell I want!
Winter in Hobart is glorious. Today it’s cold, but it’s also very sunny and clear. Perfect for walking around with a pram and a rugged up (sleeping) baby 🙂
Here’s a few piccies I took in our backyard today 🙂 I should have taken a photo of the washing on the line… always a cheery sight (unless it’s raining, then it’s very uncheery!)
