WISHY-WASHY WEDNESDAY.


 Just a little catch-up with nothing much.  Been quiet here of late with a few appointments and just generally doing the usual mundane housework, cooking, gardening and a little crafting.  Even the poor camera has been under utilised.  Hoping all will settle soon and some normality come back.

A few snaps I've taken of my knitting & sewing and DH's woodwork.



Cassie's dog coat.



Tilly's dog coat.

The top photo stayed local and the pink one went to Wales.
Our podiatrist is now on maternity leave and I presented her with this little quilt for the new arrival.
I'm looking forward to finding out if she has a boy or girl.  She already has one of each.

My quick and easy colourful baby pattern with a teddy bear quilting pattern.

DH has made DD a side table to go beside her lounge and we haven't delivered it yet due to all sorts of things, but hopefully during the school holidays so we can see her 2 children.  This table was made using mostly pallet timber.  Doesn't it come up nice with a lot of hard work.
The table.
A little bit of nonsense now.  Looking out the front door  one afternoon as I walked past, I noticed "something" out of the corner of my eye move on the footpath & when I realised what it was, ran to get the camera and luckily it was just wandering past next door.
One ibis, though you usually see them in flocks, but we do have a lot around about here anyway.

All for now, but at least I've made the effort and should hopefully keep up with a few posts each month to get back into the swing of things.
Enjoy the rest of the week all, take care and huge hugs from down under.
Susan.

  3. There's going to be some snug doggies both sides of the world in those lovely coats. Oh, how cute is that teddy bear quilting, perfect for a baby quilt. The table is beautiful, K really does have a talent with wood.

  7. I love the ibis, we used to get hadedas in Africa - another type of ibis, strange name but it is after the sound they make - Ha! De-dah! they are smaller than yours, but so familiar :D

    1. Thanks Kate. Over here they have the nickname of "bin chickens", but I've never seen them near a rubbish bin yet. We also have smaller ones which have more black colouring. I'll try and get a photo of them too at some time.

  9. The quilt looks a perfect size for a new baby, I'm sure it will be much appreciated. I love the dog coats and Tilly's is a lovely colour - hopefully I'll be seeing Eileen sometime over the Easter weekend so maybe Tilly can model it for me :)

  10. How wonderful to see the Ibis in yourgarden. The quilt will be treasured for years. The dog coats are wonderful and useful too in this sharp wind and cool weather we are having over here:)

    1. Thanks Rosie. They usually hang around wetland areas & creek beds, but occasionally walk about in the strangest places. Getting cooler here now & leaves everywhere.
