He is settling in so well with us, I couldn't be happier. He is currently on the eldest's bed snoozing, tonight it may be the middle tween's and then tomorrow, it will most likely be the youngest's. Nothing like a roster to keep things in check. My only concern is our front fencing and the cars that like to speed around the bend. Until I can sort out a solution, he is on a retractable lead when outside with us, and then let free inside the house. He loves a trip to school and is slowly sniffing out the neighbourhood (and leaving his mark!).
New yarnings were cast on...
In the form of a vintage vest pattern. It's been a while since I've done any knitting and the arrival of a new baby in the extended family was enough motivation to get the needles out again!
Strange things continue to brew on the kitchen bench...
I have been crazily sewing up little girls smocks to sell!
I think I am fast becoming addicted to fabrics from yesteryear, I find them so sweet! Last weekend saw the Suitcase Rummage back in town and I took myself, the 11yo and her chum down for the day where we enjoyed a fun day out..lovely blogger who had her stall close to mine. Several stall holders had returned from the previous rummage and it was a really nice feeling of a growing community.
After the 11yo's stall commenced with a quiet start last month, it really went off this time around! She sold out of her origami cranes on string and had quite a few takers for some cards and origami fortune cookies! As you can imagine she was totally stoked and absolutely made her day!
This week I have been a tourist in my own town.
Do you ever do this? I can't remember the last time I was up at the top of the mountain viewing the lookout, but with my mum entertaining an overseas visitor, it was a great excuse to join them.
And there is nothing quite like a friend's 40th birthday celebration calling everyone to wear their 'Ugly Frocks' to get one feeling good!
Enjoy your Sunday, people!
