Amazing What You Can Achieve On a Cold Wintery Weekend

Yes winter is coming (sorry couldn't resist a GoT reference LOL) and with it comes the crystal clear cold days, and what does one do on these days, why get out early get the chores done and then sit in front of the heater, watch DVD's and finish off some crafty stuff that has been lying around for a few weeks.

No 1 achievement was finishing off my Kindle cover..... used Lily Sugar N Cream cotton yarn. The Sugar N Cream was purchased from HERE



No 2  knit a scarf from ruffle yarn - this yarn also came from the same place as I got the cotton from for my Kindle cover.




No 3 continued on my current cross stitch project - Glendon Place "Franks Family Portrait", stitched on 28ct Pumpkin Flambe from http://www.fabtastichanddyedfabrics.com/

Quick Update

Well the cooler weather has arrived with a bang. We had decent rain for the first time in months over the weekend and this morning it was 8deg C when I got up. Brrrr.

We are heading over to Melbourne on Friday for a long weekend, catching up with the many friends that now live over there, hitting a couple of AFL games and fingers crossed some shopping. I probably only have Sunday morning to myself but that is enough to send the boys off and give me some me time to hit the stores.

Here is an update of my Lizzie Kate Mystery Sampler as of last weekend. I have now retired it to the "purple basket of works in progress" and pulled out something else that I have had sitting around unfinished for years (photo to come of this later :) )

Lizzie Kate Progress

Sorry for the quality of the photo, it was taken on my phone.........This was the progress to date late Saturday afternoon. I was watching Game of Thrones Season 3 so didn't get as much done as I would like.
I am really enjoying stitching this and as of Sunday afternoon (while watching Mad Men) I had added another pumpkin and I don't have much more to do before part 1 is finished which is the boarder below the two pumpkins.
