Of a night time in front of TV instead of sitting there and dozing off as I have done in the past I now keep myself awake by knitting and crocheting squares to be sewn up as blankets for Wrap with Love. The fabric wraps are made from leftover fabric given to me mainly by my mother and a friend. I usually use either fleecy or flannette as backing fabric. They are made to the same dimensions of the knitted rugs - 7 squares down and 4 squares across.

Of course I just had to do a bit of stash building again this weekend. I remembered during the week that there were a few pieces that I did not get last weekend and just "had" to go back for them and of course spotted one or two more and at $1 and $2per metre how could I leave them behind! I like the end one for its novelty value of cocktail glasses, cheese and crackers and olives - placemats perhaps.

This kookaburra is a frequent visitor to our garden and takes advantage of the clothesline to sit on and survey the backgarden for "edibles". I just caught him about the have his lunch. He is not at all shy and was quite happy allowing me to take his photo.
