Crocheted Rock No.2

It took me a while to get round to doing it, but here's my next crocheted rock.  I used a brighter variagated green this time and made the pattern up as I went along.  The illustrations are from "The Complete Book Of House Plants" by Russell C. Mott and illustrated by Alan Singer, which I picked up at a second hand bookstore.

If I Were A Busker

What's not to love about a catchy tune who's vid comes complete with a granny square blanket?

Also, tee hee at 2:57.

Perpetual One

Just recently I (and some other bloggy commenters) won a lovely little suprise from Georgina of Perpetual One just for leaving a comment on her blog.  It was very unexpected and dreadfully nice.  Wasn't that kind and sweet of her?  Here she is!

This gorgeous pic is from Georgina's blog
I have been wanting to visit Georgina for ages - she has a gorgeous caravan-stall at the Peregian Beach markets in Queensland and her next market date is on April 17...not far away at all!  She sells all sorts of lovely vintagey, hand assembled goodness there, has her own Etsy shop, and has even been featured in Country Style, which is one of my most favourite mags.  Good-O!!

This one is too  
So you can imagine my delight at being the recipient of a lovely little brown paper envelope which held a pretty little package inside.

And just look what it was!  A gorgeous vintage hankerchief, hand embroidered with the word "hope" and a sweet card from Georgina, herself.

So lovely, no?

Georgina, do you know - I had some pretty dreadful, nasty things happen to me last week and the very thing I needed most of all was just a little bit of hope.  Thankyou for sending some (and on a hanky to help dry my tears!)  You've no idea how much your small kindness changed my week.  I will hope...over and over.
