Morning Sparkies,

I was looking out the window at the view from the games room window, the light and shade in the grass... then a head popped up ... a 28 ... a small parrot and buddies ... eating their way along the hillside. Great camouflage !!!

Yesterday was sad, Beauty's old owner comes over each year to spray the fire breaks, so that the firies can get around the block if needed. She heard the bike coming and 'roared' a huge "blah" sound. Hubby went out to talk to the guy and said " Don't forget to spend some time with the old girl".

No need really she RAN after him all around the paddock "blahing" loudly ... sad...

I worked on Mr E's cardigan this week trying to work out how to put a letter on the front, did a trial and had to undo the whole thing it took hours, but these days I am not one to give up and gave it another try :)





It looks good and when the button band goes on it will be centred :) ... phew ... :)

Hubby worked Monday Tuesday and Thursday this week, and will return next week nearly to commissioning stage.

I am continuing to work on Christmas presents :) have sent off DD's birthday package of hats and scarves lovingly knitted by Mum :)

The weather is warming up and in the 19-22's Deg C here. Nice :)

Thinking of you all

Hugs

Christine

    My mom was a great knitter. She would knit every spare minute and was never afraid to rip. Instill have a couple if things she made for me. I can knit but not very well... I think a scarf or teo is in my future as we are on the verge of winter.

    A great view from your window!

    Sorry I don’t know much about “Beauty” and what you need to do every year.

    The “E” looks great! Great perseverance!

    It’s been hot here! And humid too!

    How nice that you’ve completed DD’s birthday hats and scarves!

    Take care and stay safe!

    Funny, we looked out our kitchen window and saw today a family of 4 huge sandhill cranes. Loved it! Always fun to see cool looking birds nearby.
    Animals always remember. I wouldn't say that's sad about Beauty and her old owner. I think it's sweet. But, maybe sad she can't be with him anymore. She would be the same way with you two, if she got a new owner.
    Even Yuma a wild panther remembers us when we go to the wildlife park and it is such a cool feeling.
    Very nice - the scarf and well done on the E!!
    Have a good day Christine. emoticon

    I love the color of the sweater. The E turned out great. Your GS will like it for sure. I just heard the Owl Hooting. Odd, since it is 12:30 pm. Guess one of them woke up for a bit. Enjoy your weather, and give Beauty a treat for me.

    The sweater is beautiful! I remember when you were having all the fires in your country---Now we are in our state and the two neighboring states. Surrounded by wildfires---not that i meant to get started on me! I am glad those are behind all of you now and hope things continue to go well for you!

    I think the sweater looks great! E will love it, of course, since it's from Grandma!

    Sounds like you'll need to give Beauty some extra love for a while, in case she's really sad. :(

    That knitting work looks good, congrats!!
