|Hair accessories & a brooch|
Another couple of hats completed while travelling. I wonder if I will ever see any of my hats being worn?

There was a spectacular sunset one evening. The sun glowed a vivid red before setting.
|Still trying to keep busy while travelling, with hand craft. These brooches & hair decorations are for the girls in my family.|

I keep telling myself to NEVER start another knitted project – I don’t really find it relaxing, I am not good at it and make lots of mistakes. But somehow I forget all this and buy a kit like this. The end result is pleasing – lovely & soft. And the weather is still cold so I will use it this year.

I am in a bit of a rut, have mainly only worked on baby hats, but I had the joy of passing on about 10 of them to a yound friend who now lives in Vanuatu & is expecting a baby. I doubt the local hospitals there have the same routine of putting a hat/beanie on newborn babies' heads, so my little hats may help a little.
Have a good week, and if you stop to look, do leave a message!

So I managed to finish a few craft items.
These squares are part of a blanket - in the making - many more to go! They are made with 2 threads together.
The baby hats are destined for a local mothers hospital.
Check out the china in the background. I have a shelf full of jugs, with crochet covers (not made by me).

I also took the time to record some of the baby hats - they are so cute!
After lunch by the water, I explored some op shops in the area - found fabric, pottery, bags, pot holder, even a new pair of thongs for 4 yr old grand-daughter. Interestingly, the thongs cost more than I had paid at a major chain store a few weeks ago, but I could not get any small enough for her then.
And, being Australia, thongs are SHOES, not ladies underwear - just realised it might be seen as a reference to my underwear shopping!
And I realise I have been spending more time shopping than creating......

No, this is not another hat - although it might work as one - it is a portable bowl I made to use in our caravan - it folds flat, a very useful attribute when space is at a premium, then makes a great bowl for fruit or veges. And it is washable. It was made from canvas fabric I bought at Spotlight.
This is a bag made at the last Stitches & Craft Fair I attended. Its made from recycled clothes.

I also managed to add tops to hang hand towels, have not done these for a while. The first one was so nice I packed it into a plastic container & wrapped it as an interim engagement present for my niece - so no photo of that one. The second one...........well, it did not end up as well - but it will do the job just as well. Better luck next time!!
