Saturday 24/02

Hello!! How can it be February already?? Life has become extremely busy, both of our girls are studying at Chiropractic at university and the boys are getting older too! Caid is in his second last year of high school and Kye will be starting high school in a couple of years.

Here’s some news from our side of the world πŸ™‚

Delilah drinking water just outside the front door, this is one of her favourite spots to quench her thirst.

Hard to believe this boy is now 12 years old! He’s enjoying learning about animation on Blender and has even started his own YouTube channel!

This is the cake he wanted, Overwatch, it’s a computer game that he enjoys playing. An amazing confectionary chef called Tiffany made it for us, she is SO talented!!

Erin made a wonderful discovery in our Bamboo bush yesterday, a Rainspider nest! The Rainspider mom is sitting on top of the nest in the photo, she is huge! The nest is literally the same size as it is in the photo. SO exciting!

This is the little zebra I made for someone over in Australia πŸ™‚ He’s on his way there now. I really enjoyed knitting this sweet softie and will have to design a pattern soon. I used pure wool from Nurturing Fibres, a stunning South African yarn dyer and he has been stuffed with Merino fleece, so 100% natural!

Our days are becoming cooler now that we are heading into Autumn here in South Africa, I’m looking forward to the colder months πŸ™‚ What have you been up to lately?

Have a lovely Saturday!

Hello there,

It’s such a busy time of year here, my oldest daughter has just passed her second year of Chiropractic! Yay!! I’m so very proud of her πŸ™‚ My second oldest has just passed her drivers test (wow! lovely!) and is busy with her matric finals! So much going on, time is flying and Christmas is almost here. Kye painted this beautiful painting on Friday and has decided that he quite likes to paint now, I love how it turned out, it’s hanging up in the dining room for everyone to see.

I’ve been wanting to knit a fox pattern for the longest time, so here he is, almost done, I just need to knit his tail. He also needs a name, so if you have any suggestions, please post in the comments.

Happy weekend!



Knitting and Cycling etc…

Hello friends, it’s been a long while since I popped in here to share about our life! It’s good to be writing again πŸ™‚ Β Winter is finally over, it wasn’t as cold as we anticipated and we only lit a handful of fires, Spring made a brief appearance and then Summer took over. We’re still waiting patiently for the rains to come, it’s incredibly dry, our garden really needs water. Rain is forecast for this entire weekend so here’s hoping it happens. Our chickens have also finished their yearly molt and we are being blessed with many eggs daily.

We have also moved all of our chickens into the wooden house, there were two separate houses but we’ve removed the smaller one and now they all live together.

I’ve been busy knitting a couple of custom orders for rabbits and alpacas πŸ™‚ The pattern for the large Alpaca can be found in my Craftsy shop.

Bailey is such a blessing, she is so sweet and has a lovely nature… We’ve had to visit the vet twice this week but she is much better now.

I’ve started mountain biking more with Richard, this was the Transvaal Galvanisers race we did together to raise funds for The Apricot Tree school. It was a chilly morning but lots of fun!

Love the sunsets while we are out riding.

Erin went with her boyfriend to his Matric Farewell recently, don’t they look wonderful! Her dress was made by Benita Colete, she is amazing!!

And one more photo of Bailey…

Have a wonderful weekend!
