Project: Beanie

Well today I made the easiest and cheapest Beanie ever. Just two small balls of super soft .99c wool and treble (double) crochet and voila! One pink beanie to cover this frozen fairy's head. (wish I had had it on show night)
Hubby and son have put in their orders to. Just not in pink. :)

On my noggin.

Close up. It's actually a bit pinker than the photo. Stupid lights.
Have had my parents staying for a couple of days. My Dad got the all clear from the specialist so they are going to be off on their travels again towards the end of next week. They are going to head north this time and visit my little sister and big Brother in our home town. It was nice having them here for a while. I do miss them terrible some times.
Apart from that life in general has been rather slow. I am still not feeling well. I have started taking Olive Leaf Extract and I am feeling a little better, but then today was a warmer day. I think I have simple gotten allergic to winter, which is ironic because winter is my favourite month. Hubby wants me to go back to the doctor for tests and chest xrays. I've never been officially diagnosed with asthma but I have the ventalin inhailers the doctor gave me when I had broncitus. I really don't feel like going back to the doctor but I guess I should.

Hubby has been able to do a few hours to our bus. Remember Betty our bus? yeah I would have forgotten about it to if it wasnt sitting in our driveway like a big broken down....well... bus! We got some proper etch primer for it and hubby has been sanding and spray painting away. Its looking better and better. We still have a ton of work to do on it, but we've hubby has made a start on it again.

I have been working on a few arty projects that have taken up my time when I'm not running round doing everything else. I will show you when I am done. Oh and Hubby finally finished his bloody massive and weighs a tonne work bench :) So I will take pics of it to.

Today was a very dewy morning, I  found some weeds that had captured some dew drops in between their fluffy little flowers and they sparkled in the sunlight so prettily. SO I want to share with you my dewy morning..

The Bees loved it to
Have a great weekend everyone.
