Home cooking

You can't beat home cooking
The planning..gathering..preparing..
It's all sooo goood...
My favorite gadget at the moment is my little bean slicer.....❤❤
Slices them so fine and they cook on seconds..
Organic grass fed beef mince
Organic sweet
Homemade soup ..full of goodness all natural..💚💚
Oh and a delivery of yummie yarn
And the sweet intoxicating fragrance from wild freesias..

Funniesh day

You know those days when the weather is not hot or cold ..,rainy or sunny ... And the skies are all confused??
Well that's today ..
I am say on the beach waiting for my Elsa bear to get her pre summer shave at the groomers ..
I am sat looking towards the group of islands known as shoal water marine park and doing a bit of quite contemplating..
I can see the brown dots over at one of the islands beaches and they are moving..
They are sea lions..
Basking in the warm light
Oh to be a sea lion ..,
No worries..,
Also finished the crochet shawl
Sorta turned out okay
Hope it fits the brief??

Beach day

Glorious day
Visit to dip toes in the beautiful Indian Ocean...
This is our local beach just a short stroll from our beach cottage home
A taste of what's to come
Blue clear sky..crystal clear water
Not many people ..there never is
Still found time to crochet
Nearly there

Vintage favorites

Those of you who know me know I adore anything vintage...
I think it's because they have already lived a life?
If its had a life and it's pretty..
I will love it..
Now where's my hook?
Woke at 2 am due to a wailing cats chorus and decided to crochet a square or two..
Certainly worked dropped off no problem..,zzzz....
Now where's the bloomin hook??

Knit or crochet??

Knit or crochet?
People ask me which I prefer?
Socks are mindless tv knitting and when my mind needs clearing..
Crochet I love ..
Grows quick
Pulls out even quicker
Color therapy
Working on a commission at the moment
So not as enjoyable
I really do love them equally
Depending on my mood..

Another sunny winters day

I love sunny winter days..
New liberty fabric to play with
Strawberries in a crystal bowl...
Recycled planter boxes found on the roadside collection...
All in all a typical bright winters day
Can't wait for summer...
I never thought I would ever say that
But after been here in oz coming up to our 16 th year ...I am tolerating winter less and less
I adore the light here
Bright sparkly light
Clear and blue
And the most amazing stars at night
Twinkle on black velvet
Almost every night
Love it ..

Day out

What better way to spend a day than with a good friend...
Solitary beaches
Stormy skies
Plenty of fresh air
All in all a great day
For blowing away the cobwebs.
