wall hangings

Inspired by my monthly woman's circle, I decided to felt this moon cycle wall hanging.. although it is not so much at the hanging stage yet!

I like my knew awareness of the moon's phases and it is interesting recording the effects on my daily life. I haven't discovered a pattern yet and I think it is difficult when life is busy and the effects of night time parenting are always an issue.

I am also working on a wall hanging for Ben's room, which is of 'The Faraway Tree'. We read a chapter each night before bed and I have to admit I look forward to it as much as he does!

The stories remind me of my own childhood always with my head stuck in a book, and Enid Blyton was one of my favourite authors :)

little longies

These little longies are ready and waiting for a bubba who is coming earthside any day now :) I love the green and brown with a hint of blue colour way so much ! I might have to dye up some more and knit Arki a pair.. hmmm.. I see a theme emerging here.

back to normal ...

We have all well and truly settled back into our regular rhythm now after a very busy Adelaide trip. Returning home I realised I didn't take nearly as many photo's as I wanted ! But I have images of beautiful autumn leaves and tree lined streets etched into my memory :)

I will admit that the thought of staying with my MIL for two weeks had me shaking for a while, but it actually turn out to be a very healing time. Before we left home I went through a letting go process and managed to go with a relatively clean slate and an open mind...

So our days were taken up with visiting our ageing relatives, old friends and Geoff's brothers' and our darling little niece.
It was just lovely to spend time as a family ! It is hard to get Mr 15 to do anything at all with us at home, so it was extra special :)

It was really nice to come home and just get back to normal.. we are just not used to such a fast paced life LOL.
