.. Hello again.... 2015-8-7 ..

Hello everybody...

I'm having a bit of a whinge about our weather...
 we're having a really cold spell here in Sydney Australia ... ( I know it's Winter... but...)

It's a bit of a shock to me because we have just had the most beautiful Spring weather and I was hoping that Winter had slipped away quietly... but NO it's back with a vengeance...... OR ... maybe I'm just getting old.... ..whatever ... I know I love my heater at the moment... xxxx 

 ...the only one to go outside is  Kyton .... 


Even with the heater on high Mum has a cardigan on over her dressing gown...  it's that cold..


One of my sisters has had heavy snow falls where she lives..... this hasn't happened for a long time...  it's been snowing in places that has never had snow before....  too cold ... Come on Spring.....  I want to pack the heater away... 



Spring and Autumn are my favourite seasons....  nice and mild..

OK ... enough about the weather.......

My throw rug is almost finished.  I've used 12 colours so far and the last colour  will be the brown.....

..... I'm really happy with it.....  I plan to do another one using balls of variegated  yarn in various colours....   looking forward to this.....


Big news .....
I went and had my hair cut really short.....


.... I'm happy with the look .. I haven't had it this short for many, many years.......
I can wear some of the hats I have made now..... hats don't go too well with twists and clips in the back of my hair.......

I made this scarf along time ago and Merle knitted the hat for me... I think this is probably where my habit of making hats and scarves started from.....

... trying out my new look...
( I think I'm getting better at taking selfies... just have to work on the backgrounds lol..)
I'm learning to relax in front of the camera.....



garden near Mum's specialist'srooms


Impatiens in my garden... I love how this flower and the Camellia below are just like people... a little imperfect, but so beautiful..


Camellia in the grounds of the hospital where our friend Edna is... she has to go to a nursing home from here..mre memory is too bad for her to live alone any more  


a lovely Grevillia at the hospital


Callistimon or Bottle Brush buds at my friend Merles place

 Have a great day everybody...
Hugs... Barb  xxxxx

  1. That is short but it suits you.
    Your hair looks lighter in colour too did you get a highlighter put in.
    It is cold I have on tights and pants, a vest, t-shirt jumper and jacket. I just warm inside.

  2. I'm feeling cold too this year, more than last year.
    I like your hair short, the hat and scarf set looks really nice on you.
