Easter bunnies

 
Someone at knitting made a few of these. So someone else had the idea we should all make them and send them to the Royal children's hospital in Melbourne for the sick kiddies at Easter 
 Think that might of been me!lol 
So here are my first two. Neither one is perfect. One of the eggs is too big as I got carried away and kept knitting, but I'm sure some little boy or girl will love them 
And with each one I will get better. I hope! 
 
I just love their little tails 
So I'm going to be making a few of these. Each week to add to the pile we send off. 
Hopefully we get a good many to bring smiles on the faces of those kids stuck I hospital over Easter  
Especially ones that won't be able to eat chocolate 
It's a great way to use up all those half balls of yarn!

Wedding day

 
Today we were very privileged to attend the wedding of Dale and Vanessa 
Dale works for us but we have know him since he was a  School boy. He had been at school with our kids
They have a beautiful daughter Mia who is two years old 
So another one of my adopted children is now married and on the road to the rest of their lives 
Hubby has dropped me off at our cabin. We are staying in town rather than driving home 
And he has gone back to continue partying on. 
Chronic pain has cut my party days short. But I wouldn't of missed this for the world 
Seeing all my children's friends happy And getting on in life. Makes me very very happy
So a long and happy life to the newly weds 
May they always be as happy as they are today 
See ya xxx

A little affordable luxury

 

It's been hot here lately. 
So very very hot. 
Yesterday I spent the day in my sisters pool and loved it. 
We used to have one. But once the kids grew up and didn't use it we got rid of it. 
And it was a lot of work. Which I just couldn't do anymore 
But I did miss it 
So I went to Kmart and got this. 
It was only $25.00! Including the pump!
So if you need me. I'll be here for the rest of the day 
See ya xxx

Party girl

My beautiful girls. Over the weekend we had melody's first birthday party. 
She isn't one until the 13th but it's a busy time of year with one thing or another so this weekend was it  

 
Her cake. Isn't it adorable. Minnie Mouse is a favourite in the house 
 
And here she is with her nana eating some birthday cake. That's what grandmothers do. We conspire to feed granddaughters cakes and sweets lol 
I'm sure she had a wonderful day. Lots of beautiful memories to treasure 
The years are flying by too fast. 
See ya xxx

Baby surprise jacket. Done

Well I finished the jacket and even sewed on the buttons. 
I have lots of buttons I bought years ago when they were on special. So I finally was able to use some 
I think it turned out well. And it will fit perfecfectly 
Although melodys birthday isn't for another two weeks. Her parents are having a BBQ party this weekend so I'll get to give it to her then 
Now I've started another for the charity pile at knitting group. We had our first meeting for the year yesterday 
I think I may make a few now that I have remembered how to make them 
Only one more day till the weekend 
See ya xxx
