Back to Yarn....

A lovely weekend at home. The children have been playing relatively nicely...washine machine humming, mower mowing, swings swinging, stir fry stirring...and frying...hehe I wanna get back to basics...back to what we alllllllllll love...yarn. The Multi coloured yarn pictured is Sheepychic "Gollans garden", from Sheepychic "my town" range. Mrs Gollan and our Mum were really good friends. Mr. Gollan had an amazing garden with dancing birds, beautiful flowers and also interesting things like peanuts and popcorn which he popped for us in an old fruit can in the shed. hehe...it obviously had an impact on me. Mrs. Gollan spoke once about how she and mum used to sit and chat for hours on the porch while the children played around them. It kinda' shocked me a little 'cos that is exactly what Tye and I have done a lot of. I guess it's too easy to let time sweep over and forget that your own mum was once a young mum like we are now. Of course, sadly...Mum has passed away. I often draw on her examples now as I parent my own little ones. Hopefully I am doing her proud.

This pinkie purplie yarn is my Sheepychic"Grace Woods" yarn. Grace Woods was my gran and she would have liked these colours.

He he...check out the two rascals. I had to go out to feed the chook in our backyard, but it was soooo cold I couldn't bare to take off my big fluffy slippers. With the lawn being damp I popped two fruit bags over my spippers to protect them...of course this sounds quick and easy...but NOTHING at our house is quick and easy!! Thankfully the effort was worth it, as the bags provided an hour of fun (peace for Mum) with a scrunch, scrunch, scrunch sound proving to be rather amusing if you're two.

This photo reminds me that I'm a bit 'behind' in my spinning. Double that!! Thanks for popping into Sheepychic...bye for now. Ruth xx

What can I say sweetie, they are simply breathtaking! I am so excited for you, and I LOVE the idea of a 'My Town" range. Only in your house would someone think to put plastic bags on their slippers, logical huh! I am more than sure you are doing your mum proud, she must be busting at the seams..... now I just need a porch.....
