I'm happy because I have finally finished this tea cosie/cozy/cosy !!
It's for a dear friend and was ordered some time ago.
Every time we caught up for coffee, I secretly hoped she wouldn't ask how it was going.........
Well, now it's done, hooray. I hope she likes it...........
I added a little more detail to the cups and teapot........
I'm very happy with how it turned out.
Now to the other 3 cosies on the list of UFO's...........
A few posts ago, I showed you how I made my Autumn Leaf Wreath.
Quite a few leaves were left over, so I decided to do a little more decorating with them.
I was hoping to create a 'windblown' effect............
We had friends visiting from Queensland on Wednesday night.
They commented on how lovely the leaves were.
For O/S readers, Queensland doesn't really have the 4 distinct seasons like we do here in Victoria.
They miss out on the beautiful Autumn colour and Spring bulbs, but then they don't get frosty mornings and cold weather like we do here and they can grow Mangoes and Avocados in their backyards.............How good would that be?
When I lived in Queensland I really missed the seasons, I was so happy to move back here and enjoy all those wonderful seasonal differences.
I'm happy because this beautiful Sasanqua Camellia has finally flowered for the first time.
It's been in the ground for oh, 3 years, but due to the drought, has struggled and looked very sad.
Last Summer all the rain we received kick started a growth spurt and now we have lovely delicate flowers.
No words needed for the above pic..........
Cheery Jonquils brightening up the kitchen.......... heady perfume, I just love them.
I planted half a dozen Jonquil bulbs when I lived in Queensland, hoping against hope that they would grow and flower.............one actually did and that one flower perfumed the whole house.
As soon as you opened the front door you could smell the perfume.
It was at the time when we were selling our house and moving back to Victoria.
Certainly beat the good old percolated coffee aroma as a house selling tip........
Last but not least this DVD just happened to fall out of it's rack at the supermarket and land in my trolley..............really? Of course..........not!!
I saw this wonderful film at the cinema and loved every second of it.
If you haven't seen it, beg borrow or hire a copy, it's worth it.
Meryl Streep is brilliant as Julia Child along side Amy Adams who plays fledgling writer Julie Powell and Stanley Tucci is wonderful as Meryl's husband.
Things here in the Sweet Birdy Love household have been a little on the quiet side this week. Not alot of crafting going, still getting back into the swing of things.
No. 1 has been away in Melbourne visiting friends and doing some recording with them.
But he's home now and things are no longer quiet..............he bought a new amp.............
Don't get me wrong.......I'm more than happy to have him home, nothing like one of his hugs, he rests his chin on the top of my head.
Wasn't it just yesterday, when he was cradled in my arms?
I started back at work, after 3 weeks holidays...........I survived and didn't need retraining !!
Feet were a little sore after standing up all day, it was nice to get home, kick my shoes off and let out a sigh of relief.......
It's also been quite cold, well, cold for this neck of the woods, so time on the couch in front of the heater with a crochet project has been a must.
Reading your blog posts makes me happy too, seeing what you're all up to in different parts of the globe.
So thanks for popping by mine and if you have time to say 'hi', I always love to hear from you.
Till next time, take care,
