Busy day

Today has been a busy one at our house. After raking up leaves this morning I got it into my head that it was high time I cut down the dead conifer in our garden. Then I eyed up the large willow tree (the one that is dropping all of its leaves) and I must have had a moment of insanity because I made a very rash decision and decided to take the chain saw to that one as well.

 So, I'm not much of a 'woods man' and I almost took out a window and railing around our veranda.

 Andrew looked on with much concern, and plenty of instructions!

 By mid-afternoon I was pretty much over my rash decision. Guess what I will be doing for the next few
days...maybe even months!

On a brighter, craftier note I have been meaning to show off these amazing bags made by my very clever friend Kristi. This one she finished off when she come to stay. I sent this one to my sister for her birthday and she loves it.

 This one Kristi made for me, its totally gorgeous and totally unique. Thanks again Kristi!

Yesterday I received this very funky photo from Kristi. Not only can this girl knit shes pretty clever on her computer as well, and her OTP projects are something else again!
Thanks Kristi

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
