Back again

Wow, three weeks has flown by since my last post. We have had such a busy time here with lots of visitors, there has been no time to open the laptop.

Thomas has been loving all the attention. Here he is with a little friend - it was fun but hectic having two babies in the house for a while, and none of us got any sleep.

Somehow in the quiet times I managed to finish this jumper for Thomas. It was a very basic design, but I hadn't done a neckband or buttonholes before, so it was a great learning experience. I'm quite keen to do another one now, but perhaps something a bit more interesting.

It is still too big for Thomas right now, but should be about right for winter.

We had a great time with another friend last weekend, and we all went on a bushwalk to the top of Mount Majura - Warren managed to carry Thomas all the way - he was quite happy looking around and taking it all in.

I was given these beautiful tulips as an early birthday present, and am really enjoying watching them slowly open up.

Tomorrow we are off to the coast for a couple of days. It will be too cold to swim, but it will be great to get away for a while.

Right now I'm going to have a quick look at my favourite blogs, while Thomas is still napping. Can't wait to catch up on some crafty inspiration.

Just thought that I would pop in and say HI! Followed your BLOG from somewhere else (humm - sorry lost track!) I love the jumper that you knitted for Thomas - I have done two in girly colours - but did not even think of doing it in boys colours - great colour choice too! Humm - think that I need to think outside of the square!
