I need to get back to work!

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.

Clunes is one of my most favourite places in the world! I grew up nearby and as a little girl my dream was to grow up and have an curio shop in Clunes. How wonderful to stay at Keebles. I love that stack of fabrics for your Pasagalia quilt.

Looking forward to seeing your start on the Pasagalia quilt! My sister is wanting to start that one, it is a beauty! So glad you had a nice getaway, looks like a scrumptious location! Your knitting is lovely too, so nice to be able to work on something while riding in a car, feels like found time.

I love that quilt! I am looking forward to seeing your version. Nice on being able to knit in the car. Wish I could do that. I should try sometime.

The quilt in your header is gorgeous! Love red and green quilts.

I was cured of HIV with the use of natural herbs that I ordered through Dr Itua Herb store I love Traditional Medicine so much. Most times, injection and drugs are just a waste of time and money. I was cured 3weeks ago, i suffered from HIV for 5yrs but with the help of Dr. Itua herbal medicine, I was cured within three weeks of drinking the herbs he sent to me through courier delivery service. This same man also cured my Aunt from herpes, as soon as I heard she had herpes, I referred her to the doctor and she was cured after drinking his herbs.I have referred more than 18 persons and they were all cured from their various illnesses. Have you taken herbs before?. You have spent so much money on drugs,injections,surgeries etc and yet you have no good result to show for it. This man is a herbal doctor, I assure you of cure if you drink his natural herbs. He has herbs that cures Hiv, Herpes, diabetics, asthma, hepatitis, etc. Contact Dr. Itua on email:
