Ate out and enjoyed coffee,

and even had some early morning exercise along the beach!

Toby Ted ♥

This is not a good pic, I'm trying to transfer my phone photos onto the computer.  Our Toby recently won an award at school for public speaking.  He had to take something special from home and present it to the class.   He chose pins from his Dad's head and pins from his broken elbow!!!  Apparently he gave a very confident and informative presentation! I wish that I was in the classroom to watch ♥♥♥
I will draw a winner for my giveaway tomorrow night, so there is still time to enter.

I'm learning how to knit a pair of socks!  I will post some picks soon, happy Monday everybody!

Thanks so much for supporting my blog  ♥ Leah

Why Crochet and Knit?

Why Crochet and Knit?
It feels good to work with beautiful yarn colors and textures! 

Knitting and Crocheting is “portable” – take it anywhere!

  Provides a sense of accomplishment when you complete a project.

If you have arthritis, knitting or crocheting help to keep the fingers limber. 

Knitting and crocheting helps stave off Alzheimer’s 

Adds balance to a high-tech, fast-paced, stressful lifestyle.

Many agree that the repetitive movements of knitting and crochet activate the same areas in the brain as meditation and yoga
such rhythmic repetitive acts help prevent and manage stress, pain and depression, which in turn strengthens the body’s immune system.  PRLOG  

I spent many hours crocheting when my husband was in hospital. I have almost finished my blanket inspired by this one created by the wonderful Dottie Angel ♥
 It's perfect weather for crochet today, don't you think?   Leah

"It's a cinch" headband/ cowl tutorial

I recently made myself one of these,  the tutorial can be found at Craftsnob. It didn't take long at all,  ( in front of the heater and TV after all the kids were asleep in bed ♥♥♥)    I used very thick wool and have been wearing it to work. Keep warm this weekend, we have been having some very "wintery" weather!

Something else for my Wish List ♥

I'm lucky enough to have a snazzy new white iPhone 4.  Every day I email pictures of my husbands wounds to the trauma centre with it,  yay!  It does have many other fun features, which the whole family try to use, Grace can even use the ipod!!  I came across these on the internet recently,  I ♥ Cath Kidston they are just a bit expensive  for me in AU!
