16/52 year of happy

Four things from my week that made me happy.

1. I was given late acceptance in a little craft festival at the end of last week, it is on next Saturday, so I have a week to get some finished things together!  I have decided to make a few chunky scarfs, they are fun to knit and can be finished in a day or two.  This week I am going to be crafting up a storm!!  Hopefully I'll have a few tadah moments to share here.  I think I work well with a deadline, very motivating!

2. Gary and I went for a drive into the hills to a bulb farm and I bought some lovely bulbs for my Spring garden. I am giving tulips a go this year, so gorgeous, and also a heap of new freesias and ranunculus and some pink daffodils, looking forward to Spring already!

3. It is sale time at the big fabric/wool/craft supply shops at the minute, and I couldn't resist getting some new wool at heavy discounts.  I'll show you the rest of my haul later! 

4. Knitting in the car, it just feels like very productive time!  I hate just sitting there with nothing to keep my hands busy.  (I end up just falling asleep!)

I had lots of other things I could have added here today, the weather has been beautiful and Autumnal, leading to many happy moments just pottering about in the garden, or sitting outside with a cool drink.
It is going to be a busy week around here, I hope I can get everything done in time!


How has your week been? 
Lots of happy moments I hope!

  9. We're having the first real week of springtime weather around here so this week is all about the garden for me. I can't wait to dig in ad get thins cleaned up, plant the potatoes, turn the soil. Exciting days for sure.
