ANOTHER YEAR HAS PASSED ME BY!!!

Hello to the few bloggers who follow Marynan's Craft Room!!!
Lots of things have happened since I last blogged!!
DH and I don't mind the grandchildren as much any more!
They go to Daycare three days a week now.
Miss B will turn 5 in September and
Master K will turn 4 in October.
How the years are flying by!!!
They are an absolute  joy to have around.
 
I have been doing more English Paper Piecing using Sue Daley's Prairie Rose fabrics.
 
During the current Winter season I have been knitting some 8ply & 10ply berets/hats.
They have turned out beautifully as the photo will show.  The 10ply Bendigo Yarn Wool/Angora is just beautiful to work with, so soft and luxurious!!
I joined a fat quarter swap late last month and have already sent my partner her two Red and White
Heart Fat Quarters.  Guess what?  I forgot to take a photo of them before I sent them.  I am in the Birthday Swap too, and I hope Heather has received her gift.
 
 




(Here are three of the six hats I knitted, burgandy one in Totem, purple is in Bendigo Wool/Alpaca
and white one is in Sirdar Balmoral Wool/Alpaca)
Knitted a black one in Bendigo Wool/Alpaca for my DD.  What colour would she want but black??
They are so snuggly and warm and cover a multitude of hairdo sins!!!!!
 
After Council Approval, we had a gigantic tree removed from our front yard.  We had the tree chipped and extended our front garden and planted two medium sized Grevilleas that should grow to
three metres or 10 feet, that will bring heaps of Native Birds and Insects in as they grow, they are
already flowering.  I also planted some more Native Correas they flower during Autumn and Winter and will bring some colour during these colder months, also Native plants, are very WATER-WISE
plants after about 2 years.

 
See these lovely bananas - our very first bunch - and they were delicious!!!
The bigger ones were only about 5" and the rest smaller, about 100 in total.  They ripened all at
once, so bananas were coming out our ears by the finish.  We gave about 1/2 of them away to
relations, friends and acquaintenances.  They were sooooooooooo sweet and tasty!!
