The Farmers Market was on at Lancefield while we were away and I grabbed this little bundle of dolls clothes for Maya's baby doll, Jonah H. $4 - so impressed. At the local op shop I found a knitting stitch counter, old and yellow and exactly the same as the one my grandma used. I couldn't leave that behind.

That's Ayden and me. Yep, he is 6'3 and 16 years old. Matt and I were so proud of him, with the ballroom dancing, this partnering, and for dragging me through the Pride of Erin on the parents dance.
So with all this happening, Callum, Kane and Maya were off to their grandma's for the night and didn't get home until nearly 4 today. Ayden didn't get home after the Ball afterparty until nearly 3 am, then off to the casual job this morning for the breakfast shift. I had a quiet Mothers Day. It's very noisy now though :)
The colour is a bit bright on these pics, but just to show you I have finished something. I've been averaging a day a week in Melbourne for work so I've been knitting on the train. Two cute tops for Maya to wear at creche.
Back to Melbourne tomorrow, so I'll be using my first Noro wool bought at Stitches and Craft show last Thursday. I snuck in quickly before a work conference - yay!

Not great when Matt and the three youngest kids were off for the weekend for his mum's 70th birthday and Ayden and I were off in the other direction for family christenings too. Big sigh..
So I was sooo happy to start on my packages from Around the Block. Susie had requested Space Themed blocks for her little boy Gryff in primary colours. Susie even had Spoonflower print up a fabric with Gryff's name to incorporate into the blocks. I just love this idea.
I took a big breath and started on Rita's. Rita from Red Pepper Quilts is pretty famous, especially for her half square triangles and this was part of her theme. We were to make blocks using green, blue and yellow fabrics, that were fresh, modern, traditional, crisp and simple in a range of sizes from 3.5" to 10.5". I hope my blocks are pointy enough?
