 I had cause to celebrate recently with 50 good reasons
I threw caution to the wind and had a party
It was great fun and quite liberating!
 I have been quiet these Winter months, but certainly not idle.
I've been learning about my knitting machine with a scarf above for my sister.
 I've crocheted Attic 24's Stripy Blanket - started at the start of Autumn and finished first month into Winter = 4 months of lovely work. It's a beautiful blanket and so warm to snuggle under on Winter nights.
 I've kept my eye on these lovely neighbours.  The small one is now walking and chasing my pussy cats around!
 A spot of Winter gardening of course.  Still not finished pruning the roses yet.
 A trip to the Melbourne Zoo with friends during the School Holidays.  I found the most fascinating bit was when a diver went into the tank to clean the glass.
 The bubbles were AMAZING!
 I liked this elephant too.
 I knitted some new mittens on my machine.  Even used the Ribber, and made a pattern.  Very Fancy - as you can see I was proud of myself.
 So you see, I've been busy, but just not blogging - feeling happy with life but forgetting to share - sorry!
Preparations underway for America

Annie your knitting and craft skills continue to astound me. Remember to come and give me guidance on a project and tell me what to buy prior. I'm running out of time. I bet the cats will be up to the challenge of playful neighbours, especially Angus he's special and I miss him, Monty is trying to be more affectionate but alas my heart is elsewhere now, lol. Are you ever getting in the garden? I try but last 10 minutes then freeze over!

What yarn-y wonderfulness you have going on there, Mrs. Flower Garden! Just beautiful - each and every one. And those bubbles are quite something!
