.. pretty leaves and crochet.. 2016-3-23



 It's been a too long since I last blogged...  Sorry about that..  xxxxx

Have been a bit busy and got side tracked...

Autumn is beautiful....
..  I love the beautiful colours  of Autumn....


Clear skies and gentle warmth...  perfect.....


Mum had good reports from both her renal and heart  specialists...   healthy and stable...  good to hear.



I made 2 pretty scarves in the last couple of weeks they were fun to do....



I'm crocheting a rug at the moment...
I'm using 4 strands of 8ply yarn and a 15mm hook.......  each ball is in it's own bag so the yarn doesn't tangle......

.......  I'm using the yarn that came from my friend Edna's place when she went into care and can no longer use it.

We had a visit from this huge caterpiller yesterday....... I have no idea where it came from...  it just appeared fully grown and eating my Impatiens......  this morning it was gone...  I would love to know where it came from and where it went to....  Nature's secret I suppose....
.... it was very fat..  and very hungry..


.. I was very happy with this still life of fruit that I set up and photographed.....   I love the colours and the sunlight...




..  Have a great day.....
I'l be in touch soon...
Hugs...  Barb  xxxx

Autumn is coming .... yay... 2016-3-6

..  I'm feeling little touches of Autumn weather here in Sydney Australia.....   the days are getting windier and the heat of Summer is lessening....  
Great weather for washing and drying...



Leaves are starting to change colour, too .......


 I'm looking forward to cold Nights...   love having the windows open when it's cold....   I drive Hubby and Mum crazy...  


Hubby has joined a local Darts Club.....   he hasn't played darts for many years but is enjoying himself......
We now have our own darts set up in our Back Room ....  which I call the Play Room.......
Hubby has spent days getting everything 'just right'  for practice and play..


...  he's a happy man now....   and I'm glad it ended up on his side of the room.... he wanted to hang it on the front of my craft shelving.....  I was horrified..  so pleased his plan changed without me having to be too definite with my opinions...




Merle, Mum and I have decided to try  going to Bingo every second week to see if that helps Mum... she is very, very tired these days.....  which is totally understandable at her age....






... Jules, our Cocktiel turned 16 in January this year and Kyton will be 13 this month.....  we really are a household of 'Oldies'  xxxx
... Ky still likes to help with the gardening.....  




...some local Lorrikets that come into the block of units/flats next door to us ....  there are a lot of trees and they go from balconies to trees on and off all day.....  very pretty... but Noisy..  xxxxx








..  I hope you have a wonderful day and I hope that Spring is starting to show it face in the Northern Hemisphere ... like Autumn is here......  

I'm going to put some of my colouring in pages on my other blog....   Through my Eyes   .. if you are interested to visit...
 

Hugs to all ...
