My Home Town.

I thought I'll share with all my favorite place where I live.

Here is the corner of my street.

This my favorite yes I live by the beach.

In summer I some times sit here with my crochet and stitch away at the moment it is winter in Australia so crocheting is a bit hard to do less then 2min my hands feel like there not there any more.

Next place is the pier there is a bench seat where I bring my crochet mag down and read. I do not crochet on the pier after because I did once and my yarn dropped over the edge never again.

This is under the pier in summer I bring down chair and crochet and read I like it because it out of the hot sun you can hear the waves hit the posts and the seagulls trying hard to steal food off everyone.

Also there is so much inspiration with art work and nature and wild life every time I go to the beach it changes.

This is one thing I did at the beach this year.


Just a quick post to say thank you I now have 50 followers and i can not beleave it when I first started I did not think I'll get one. so thank you all again.

Hello all today I woke up 5.30am and got all the house work done by 9am which is strange for me I am not a wake till 10am so I don't finish the house work till 3 or 4pm then have hour rest then cook tea. So for the first time time I had time to sit down a crochet most of the day and bake.
My new crochet project is trying to finish all my cushion covers here is the new one so far.

Don't mind the blankets in the background it is winter here in Australia so we are rugged up so wish  I was somewhere warm.

My New Toy

I have been looking at these pom pom makers and keep turning it down so while there was a sale I bought one to give it ago. I have never liked pom poms they never turn out right I use to make with two bits of cardboard and they always look like tacky. The clover pom pom maker makes a full and really fluffy round ball like a pom pom love it now time to makes some hats for my pom poms.
