Monday night Travis Cloake and a couple of rookies from the Collingwood Football Club came to Yarrambat to do some drills with the boys. There was even a hand-balling competition which Nelson won. He was lucky enough to get a new Yarrambat Football bag. The zip's broken on his old one so now I don't have to buy a replacement!Here's Nelson getting Travis' autograph on his footy jumper.
I cut into one of the pumpkins that had popped up in the garden from the compost. It was so orange that it stained my hand. I made a big pot of yummy pumpkin soup with it. It's fantastic eating things that have come out of your own garden.
I have been getting a little sewing done.I made this bag for a friend's significant birthday.Another Dee Dee Dolphin.
I've also been a bit lucky lately and have won a few prizes from blogs.
I won this a little while ago from Jo of Jo's Country Junction and forgot to post about it. It's some tape to fuse pieces of batting together. I haven't had a chance to use it yet. Thanks Jo!I also won these gorgeous wooden buttons and pattern from Lisa of Button Bliss. Thank you Lisa.This parcel arrived from Michelle of The Raspberry Rabbits. Two beautiful applique books plus a couple of raspberry chocolates and some tea to enjoy while I read them. Thank you Michelle (and Harrington).
