And Winter is Gone...

Winter has come and gone and spring is here.
And I have been hibernating - well one would think that because my last post was wayyyyyyy back in April. I haven't been really - just very busy with the everyday things in life and trying to stay dry and warm!!!

There as been colour in my winter somewhere - beautiful leaves or

bright little splashes of flowers and fruit

now though, they are hard to find among the weeds! (and the weeding cycle continues - this is a big long task this year because I have been hibernating inside away from the rain, cold wind and sunless days!)

not much crafting as been done but it has been colourful and fun

finally using some of my 'yarn snob' yarns

outside it has been wet and dreary, rain is now a weekly event!!
no time for the ground to dry out.

a lot of time spent with winter family

and a little bit of winter preserving and getting ready for spring and summer preserving.

an end of winter family addition - William Eric Brill born 23rd August

William and Oliver - a very proud big brother

and the nicest part of winter

Spring of course has brought with it some warmer sunny days, flu bugs and a sick Karah - hopefully she will start to be on the mend over the weekend.
And of course this weekend is the Bathurst Bloggers Meet and I of course couldn't go - I KNOW the girls will be having a fabulous time and look forward to seeing many blog posts and heaps of photos!!
Time for this little beaver to hibernate for the night - lots planned around the house tomorrow and maybe a little stitching on Sunday!!


  1. So nice to see you poking your head out to have a look around again Kerry! Congratulations on your new addition! Oliver looks like a giant compared to his tiny brother. Your winter looks easy, except for the rain of course. We don't have anything growing here in winter. Lots of crochet during grey dreary days is a balm for the soul ;) Have a great weekend! Sorry you weren't able to meet up with the bloggers this time

  2. Yay for blogging.
    😔 You couldn't make it this weekend. Hopefully next year!

  3. Miss you.... You better be stitching with up on Sunday........ Take care.....

  4. Oh, it's lovely to visit your place again, Kerrie. You certainly have been busy. Love those woolly pretties you have made. I guess with all that rain, surely it means there will be lots of lovely green grass very soon. Love the photo of the basket of woolly things by the cosy fire. Have the most wonderful week.

  5. Lovely to see your name pop up Kerrie! Sounds like you've been doing heaps, even if not much stitching or yarn-love. Beautiful new bub to adore... and lovely happenings in your garden... drats to those weeks!
    We've had so much sickness all winter, it's the first time in years I'm actually looking forward to the warmer months.
    Take care! x

  6. Sooooo good to see you back. I can see you have done the crochet-a-along and it looks fantastic as does the other one too. LOvely family pics.
