School Holidays are Here.....

Fun Fun Fun....Ok I do enjoy the holidays but never the ones in the middle of winter as we often end up stuck inside watching TV or the kids are each other batty. At least over the summer we can head across the road to the beach to build sandcastles or go for a swim... or we can even take a walk down to the rocks around the base of Mount Mauao to look for crabs and starfish or even just walk down the road to the park for a swing.

So not much sewing will get done over the next couple of weeks, but I will probably get more knitting done...especially seeing I found an old knitting book in the op shop the other day and It had a few interesting patterns I would love to try and make and eventually adapt! The one that caught my attention was a knitted sleep sack... actually it had two different patterns so it should be fun playing around with them! At the moment though I have started knitting a creamy yellow shrug to go with my xmas dress', using a Bamboo/Merino blend Yarn and have also started a Lavender 100% Bamboo Shrug as well.

I have also checked out a new market that started in the Mount and will look at having a stall there come September.
