Spring Finish

I have been playing with this wool for awhile now.  Trying different patterns and not getting any of them right!  In the end I decided to just do some free style crotchet, and this is what I cam up with.

The wool is just beautiful and I enjoyed working with it.  It was a late night EBay purchase that arrived one day at my front door.

My garden continues to bloom, and steal me away from the house.  I love bulbs and the reward you get from the wait, and the preparation in the Autumn.

These are some new treasures that have found their way to me.  Symbols of new beginnings, strength and beauty.

I had trouble taking a photograph of my new scarf . . . maybe it was the time of the day. . . but this gives you an idea of how it looks on.

A Spring Finish
. . . and I'm off to Les Mis tomorrow with 'Miss Flowergarden' who is turning 17 next week, as a birthday treat.

Oh, what a beautiful morning

 Now this is a story. . .
 I should have taken a before and after - I found this old chair on the side of the road a few months back.  I gave it a new life.  Looking from this angle, I need to put something underneath so you don't see those springs - but I was pretty happy with the result.

These are a few of my favourite things

Playing with my new camera lens on my day off.

What a WEEK!

 Last week at school was H U G E
It was our Bi Annual Arts Week.
 All week (with the exception of a few classes here and there) were dedicated to creative arts.  My idea of a little slice of heaven.
 There was dancing, singing, workshops of all shapes and sizes . . .
 . . . a visit to the local Art Gallery
 Guest Performers
 I did happen to sneak in a little bit of gardening with the children
 Collaborative Projects
 and heaps of fun stuff
 All culminating with a Public Exhibition on Friday arvo
 Each classroom made their space into an Art Gallery

 It was amazing
 It made me feel very proud of our school and students
 and thankful that I could be part of it

 This is one of the Trojan Horses from my room
The alternate years we have a school concert . . .
but I think I like Arts Week best!
