Day 29

Day 29

Finger knitting.

On a mission.

We are going to teach as many people as we know.

They are going to help us.

Then we are going to make it into a coil rug.

The coil rug will then be donated to the Children's ward
of our local hospital.  

So far we have taught a bunch of people to finger knit.

They think it is cool now too.

And -

some of them took some yarn to school and taught their friends.

We think they are cool.  

Thanks for stopping by my place today.

Helped by my fabulous family.
Put together by our fabulous Market Angels.

Day 25

Day 25

The last game of soccer for season 2012.

The legs of champions.


Each and every pair of legs you see here - Champions.

The other team were short 2 x players.  

Three of our players took turns in wearing the other teams jersey to even up the numbers.

Told you they are Champions.  

The future needs these kiddies, 'cause that's what it should be about,
helping your mate, no matter who they are or where they come from.

The future is bright with beautiful people.

Thank you little Tigers - Thank you.

Day 24

In every outthrust headland, 
in every curving beach, 
in every grain of sand,
there is the story of the earth.

I missed yesterday.
It was *ugg*
but I am better now.
I had some pasta sprinkled with parmesan cheese for dinner.
It was yummy.
It stayed in my tummy.

Today is more market stock that I am tagging tonight.
Towel holders.

I like towel holders.

Thanks for stopping by.

Day 20

Day 20

Crochet flowers.

Bring on Spring!

These will be for sale at my next market on Sunday.

They have nothing on the backs of them, so you can be creative too.
Use them when wrapping your next gift, pin on a cardi, sew some onto the tops of your socks,
attach a few in a posy to your library bag, use with your cardmaking/scrapbooking, thread a bobby pin through them and attach to your pony tail, decorate a pretty party table with them scattered like confetti.

Thanks for stopping by my place today.

Day 18

Day 18


This rose is part of a massive bouquet that was handed to me
by our little soccer team.  

It was so big that I had to carry it in the crook of my elbow, because my
hand could not fit around the base of the bouquet it was THAT heavy.

Lucky for me it was really sunny.
Cause I had my sunnies on.
There was a bit of sun in my eyes and 
the water started coming out.

They are the most awesome group of kids - ever!
Their parents are the most fabulous parents - ever!

I truly have been spoilt.

Thanks for stopping by my place today,
have a wonderful Saturday at your place.

So looking forward to long summer days.

Today brings us to another Friday.
A reminder to me to stop for a moment.
Just a small moment to breathe.
Have you stopped to take a breath today?

My little quote for today -

There's no other love like the love for a brother.
There's no other love like the love from a brother.
- Astrid Alauda - 

Thanks for stopping by my place today.
Happy weekend to you.

Day 7

Day 7

I love colour charts.

I placed an order for more yarn. 

There were colours that I don't already have.
Some ordered by my customers for stuff that they want me to make for them.
So I HAD to order more, and while I was there, I ordered some other colours, you know, just in case.

It was fun choosing the colours.

Now I just have to wait for my postie to bring it to me.  

Hurry please postie my friend.  

Thanks for stopping by my place today.

Happy Tuesday to you.

Day 6

Day 6

Boats that bring in our fresh fish.  
I love fresh fish.

I got to spend the day with my hubbie today.
Just the two of us together.

I think it's been about two years since we have just hung out together (minus kids) for a while.
Last year for bank holiday I was working.  I do remember a function last year that we attended, you know, with a full table of people - it was a 'work thing', so I am not going to count that one at all.

Today it was just he and me.
We went out for lunch by the water then we walked along the water just where this photo was taken.  
No wonder I love blue and green together so much.
The water sparkled, the sky shimmered, we held hands.

We are all home together for dinner tonight too.  
It's a fabulous day.  

Thanks for stopping by my little place today.  
I hope your Monday has been full of wonderful.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Enjoy your evening.

Day 3

It's a Jenga Garage.

Pupil free day today, a rare day at home means catch up for Mum and a jammie day for my boys.  
They love their jammie days and there has been lots of car play, cubby house play, and a spot of reading.  They still have the whole afternoon stretching sunnily ahead of them.  

Today is also Friday, my take a moment Friday, so I will incorporate that here too.

hmmmm, thinking, thinking. . . . . . . . . . 
ok with the help of my boys today, they have chosen a Dr. Seuss quote, how apt for today.

Fun is good.

Thanks to my boys for this little quote for today.  

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a fabulous Friday at your place too.

Day 2

Shadow girl meets lone leaf.

I love shadows.
I love leaves.
I love leaf shadows.
I love shadows shaped like leaves.

Did you know that the word 'leaves' is a Homonym?
You have 'leaves' as in pretty, normally green, attachments to trees, shrubs and other plants, then you have 'leaves' as in some sort of departure, as in a train pulling out of the station or a person removing themselves from the room, or quitting a job.  Oh there are lots of ways to use the word 'leaves'.

Thanks so much for stopping by my place.
have a lovely evening at your place.

Photo A Day for August 2012

Photo a day seems to be really popular.  I used to love checking out where everyone was at, it's a lovely way to connect when we don't live around the corner.

For the last 31 days of winter, I am also going to do my own photo a day challenge.  The only rule is that there are no photos of peoples faces.  No other rules.

You are also more than welcome to join in, please let me know and stick your link in your comment.

There are a few reasons for doing this and they are - get back to my blog - pull out the camera to capture a moment of each day - reconnect with my blogging community - slow down even just for a moment of each day and really 'see' what surrounds me instead of barging through the day with a full toilet roll bolt of 'things that need to be done'.

Day 1.  
Full moon.  
Thank you for peeking out behind those clouds just for me tonight.  
My inspiration for this project.  

Thanks for stopping by my place tonight, have a wonderful evening at your place.
