Off The Radar

Posted on | December 5, 2017 | 13 Comments

Summer has started here with a bang – as in storms and rain. Our state had severe weather warnings out and there was a lot of rain in some areas as well as flooding. No flooding here but a lot of rain and the garden is happy. I know the weeds are growing fast.

I have completed a full set of Lynette Anderson’s stitched decorations in time for Christmas.

Each one now has its wooden button attached and is ready to be used as bowl fillers.

Some knitting has also been completed.

This knitted as a size 2 in lovely yarn from Bendigo Woolen Mills.

Not a lot else to report from here as the last two weeks have been quiet on the stitching front. I have been off the radar as hubby had full knee replacement surgery. Lots of trips to visit hospital and then time at home. I must say that I am amazed at how quick the recovery is. No crutches needed anymore and minimal pain. Now that I am not needed as much I will get back to reading and commenting.

How many days until Christmas?

Cheers, Karen
