Felt Xmas Deco's & Anmatjere

I have finished the set of 4 felt xmas decorations,penguin,santa,rudolph and xmas teddy

Each time i made one i made three of them so now i have 3 sets for the xmas gift box.

I got my stitchery blocks trimmed up and got the other blocks cut out too for this xmas wall hanging.

I am off today to have my Pulmonary lung function test and straight after my Echo heart ultra sound,i had my chest xrays and blood tests done before i went to Darwin,so fingers crossed i will be do more without struggling to breathe soon, after my next Dr's visit.

Some pics taken at the caravan park in Anmatjere Northern Territory.
The aboriginal lady statue was very tall,at least twice my height and she is with her child and a big goanna.

And the man was standing up on the hill behind the caravan park he was also very tall and you could see him for miles along the highway.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

A Finish & A Recipe

I have finished another felt xmas decoration ,this time its Rudolph.

So while i was on the go i made 3 of them,they are all packed ready for xmas,the gift box is slowly filling,lol.

I have been making our bread now which we enjoy more than the supermarket bread.

I made some Potato,Chorizo & Leek soup ( i used onions as i didnt have any leeks ) to have with the homemade bread.
Hubby reckons its the best soup ever.

 Here i have included the recipe in case any of you would like to make it.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend,its going to be a cold wet one here.

More Finishes and a Country Pub

I have finished my felt teddy bear xmas decoration.

In fact i got three finished for the gift box.

Coming back from Darwin we decided to stay at Daly Waters,the caravan park was next to the pub but was full to the brim as their was a rodeo on,so we had a drink and pit stop before we headed off again.

This was the service station across from the pub.

Lol you never know what you will see in the outback,i had to look twice yes they are bra's hanging from the ceiling,lol.

Oh dear yep this side had undies and jocks hanging from the ceiling,lol,looked quite strange.

Lol i found the way to the toilets,i have never seen it spelt that way before though.

I hope you all have a wonderful day.

Coming back from Darwin we stayed at a little place called Wycliffe Wells ,its a well known spot for UFO sightings.
Lol an alien caught me,cant run as fast as i used too,lol .

 It was a fun place to look around and our grandies would've loved it here.

 While we were there we met up with another lovely couple that came from Rockhampton and we are keeping in touch and lol her name was Sheryl spelt the same way as my name.

 Top right hand pic is of the restaurant but its closed down and looked like something the paranormal investigators would love to look through at night lol.
What the lol we also found Elvis and the hulk,and our grandsons were so excited about the hulk,lol,so funny thought they would be more interested in the Aliens,lol.

I have slowly been doing a bit of spring cleaning and i found these 2 lovely lanterns to go in my loungeroom when i went shopping last week.

 I found this great recipe on pinterest for fluffy Vanilla pikelets and oh boy they sure were yummy,i will make these again when the grandies come up.
If you would like to make them here is the link.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

Alice Springs

While we were in Alice Springs Hubby went off to a trucking musuem and on the way he dropped me off at the local agriculture show,i also love seeing what the CWA ladies make and bake and also to see all the wonderful entries from the local people.
I bought the CWA cookbook and have already cooked a few things out of it,and i bought hubby some homemade cumquat marmalade which he loved,wish i had bought 2 jars of it,lol.

There was lots of lovely knitting and sewing and lots of clever plants,love the turtle in the front of the bottom right pic,very clever whoever thought of that.

I loved this beautiful quilt made by one of the CWA ladies.

This quilt was lovely too.

I also got the other 2 santas stitched up so now i have 3.

I am enjoying making these felt decorations up.

Hope you have a lovely day.
