Painting fun!

Sometimes kids are so much fun :D
Yesterday we did some painting on the back lawn - wrapping paper was needed - and here are a couple of the photos.
Obviously there was a bit of mess to clean up. Not sure how much paint Hamish injested........ It said non-toxic on the side, so here's hoping no permanent damage!

Woolaholics Small Things Swap

I recently took part in a small things swap for this forum I belong to. I knitted a hot water bottle that I sent off to someone in Melbourne - I forgot to take a picture of it! Darn it all.
But this is the bag we received from a *J* in Perth.
Its lovely, Jenna is enjoying it, and especially hiding little treasures inside it! Its made from recycled Sari Silk, and is lined with green velvet. Thanks to our swapper.

Steiner Quilt all done :)

Its finished and dropped off at the school. I'll admit it turned out a lot nicer than I thought it was going to, but I was still happy to give it away.
I hope they can raise some money with it.
Its being raffled with a granny squares crochet blanket that the parents and friends craft circle made over a few weeks.

Jessica modelling her hat

My sister sent me this photo this morning of my niece in her hat. Isn't that nice! She asked for me to put it on my blog next to the phot of Jenna in Jessica's hat. Done :D
Its very odd..... I didn't know she read my blog! Even more funny is I was about to post some pictures of soemthing I was starting to make for her birthday... Guess thats out until she's received it!

Very happy that Jessica has worn the hat. It will probably go a few more weeks until spring/summer starts hitting NZ in a big way.
