Another hobby?!

When you have a house full of fabric, wool and children, do you really need to take up another hobby? Well, apparently my answer is yes! LOL

I have always wanted to make a mosaic, so for six months I have been collecting and reading, trying to get myself organised to have a go.

Well, here's my first attempt...still got a lot to go, but you get the idea.

I especially love the tiles I bought to represent our furry family members.

I have loved working on this. It's like an artistic jigsaw!

It's been too tempting for Gorgeous Girl to not have a play with, so she has been busily working with this mirror frame.

Why do I have the song "Anything you can do I can do better" running through my head? *grin*

Hope you're having a good week!

One little blue beanie finished for my nephew. Made from a free ball of Chroma wool received from Knit Picks.

The blue goes well with a certain little boys eyes...

Happy coincidence. .

Knitting a beanie for my little nephew and love that the variegated wool has changed colours right where the band has finished.  Couldn't have planned it if I tried. ..

Koala beanie

One of the staff at work was (bravely!) shaving her head for "Shave for a Cure". Not sure if I would choose Winter myself to have no hair...but thought a beanie might help!  So I made her a koala beanie..excuse the dodgy picture, it was finished late one night, handed over the next morning.

I've just returned from a weekend watching basketball at Gosford. Some very exciting games, including Master 10's team winning two games by 1 point!

We headed to Terrigal Beach in the morning before heading home. What a beautiful spot!

I made some progress on my rug,that I'm working on, between games, so hopefully I will be back with a finished photo soon!

Hope you're having a good week!
