You can get into a lot of trouble on the internet if you don't have enough work to do. Seriously. Trust me. I've done it.
So many great projects there, beautiful fabrics and yarns of all kinds, and creative people to follow. But you need to boost your willpower before you look - so much temptation. Mine goes out the window at this time of year and I get excited about projects that I want to start for the year.
This summer I have been really drawn to some knitting projects.......but more of that in another post.
For a long time, I have had my eye on this wonderful quilt
so I thought I might have this bubbling along beside the other projects that I have.
I sort of have an idea of the colours I want to use......starting with these.
GORGEOUS....can't wait to start - but I need to wait for the papers to come.......stay tuned!
Last week I decided that I needed to get out of town for a few days, so we took a short trip to the Goldfields region of Victoria. We stayed at a lovely B&B called Keebles of Clunes.
A beautiful Country House with a glorious garden.
View from the breakfast room.
We had fun exploring Clunes, Creswick, Maryborough, Maldon and Bendigo.
We visited the Museum in Bendigo where they have this gorgeous Leonard French piece.
Lots of great food and wine throughout this region....a great short break if you need one.
And a bonus for me - I discovered that I can knit in the car (provided I don't have to read a pattern or look at my stitches) so I took a project along and got a heap done.
Here is a bit of it. My lovely daughter wanted a plain V-neck and we found this gorgeous Manos del Uruguay yarn last year that has been waiting for me to start. Knitting up so fast and really lovely to work with.
Have a great week.
