What Im planning to visit:

Mirka Mora

What Im working on:


Well after the excitement of the weekends drawing challenge Ive decided to start the week with a lovely project inspired by Her Library Adventures. Ive been wanting to crochet one big square for a cushion for awhile now I think Im ready for it so when I saw Sophies lovely efforts I really had to start one right then and there......well ASAP. A coupla rounds here.......a different colour there and look how far I got without even trying!
The only trouble is I had great intentions for finishing off my wrap around skirt? but just didnt feel up to it. Next week Ill get to it no worries.

Do you not just adore these woolly legs? I do!
 Im thinking it might be one of the projects for when Matriarchs arrive next week hopefully. Patriarch (Uncle) had a hospital visit scheduled for next week so Matriarchs may have to delay visit.

I hope not because I had plans for a picnic at Heide Museum of Modern Art with a visit to see the wonderful and inspiring Mirka Mora exhibition.
Fingers crossed!

A superfood packed breakfast: Oatflakes, cinnamon, blueberries, skimmilk, homemade plain yogurt.

I do love those rainbow happy stockings, too! Those must take forever to knit though (at least for me, as I am a sloooooowwww knitter...)

Hi Elizabeth!

yes Im not a fabulously fast knitter either but I figure that once you got going they are that long you would just have to get quicker as you progressed along....well Im hoping thats what could happen otherwise they might just be kneehis or anklets :)

2) like those tights (they're wonderful!)

Three good things about you! Please show the tights when you've done them!

for years i have wanted to spend an entire day/weekend/week at the heide museum.
i am seriously obsessed with that time in australian art history and all the artists that came from there in various ways.
