Camping


I'd like to be able to say this is a photo of us on our recent camping trip - don't we just look super organised - but alas it is a photo from my book Cooking for Campers that I picked up recently at the op shop for $2. We have just been camping, but being the newbies we are didn't manage to cook anything over the fire except the requisite marshmellows. All other meals were made in the camp kitchen or take away. Looking at the photo I guess this family must of been packing a trailer, because our Subaru Outback was packed to the hilt and we wouldn't have been able to fit in all that food and extra gear. But no matter, we had fun, and relaxed. I managed to knit a little bit more of Lucy's sock which at this rate will be finished sometime in 2008 if I'm lucky!

I have managed to get a little bit more organised and finished Miss Z's black lamb from the pictured japanese book - she has been appropriately named 'Wooly' (ps. it is hard to photograph black softies)

Another top for me - with the bad self photograph


And I signed up to Amitie's blog membership and these lovely fabric sample's arrived in the mail. Click on the button to the right if you would like to see more about them. They have a great range of fabrics.

And thanks Justine for getting me involved.

LOVE the black woolie!! So cute! Cute top too! The fabulous fabric you got was designed by Sandy Klop (American Jane) who I know! She works at a quilt shop near me. Isn't it cute? I'm making a teacher quilt with some of it!

cute top! and cute softie!

(the next time you have a big patch of sunlight streaming in, lay him on something light [like a sheet] and take pix without the flash. i think that will work. and he's so cute!)
