Bits and Pieces..

It's been another busy weekend with the monkeys. Lots and lots of running around after the kids on Saturday and family up today.

Most of my crafting has been finished a couple of swaps so no pics yet. I have added the stitchery antenna's on the scrappy butterflies, and started on a Christmas stitchery too. The butterflies are from a pattern called "the Butterfly Collector" by Lynette Anderson Designs.

I managed a bit of time out in the jungle of our front garden and cleared a heap of weeds. I even let the visitors have a go!

Annie must have been at your place. She is the only visitor I know who is happy to pull weeds (LOL).

Those butterflies are amazing - that quilt is going to be fantastic.

My weeding gets done by my mum when she comes to visit...and she mows the lawn. I am useless.

It's the worst part of Spring isn't, the sudden take over of weeds, I just want to drive passed our house at the moment!!!!
