Morning Sparkies,

Another hot week here, no fires close to us. We even had some rain, the foal on the paddock next to ours would not have experienced that :). I love the 'firsts' when my babies were growing up :).

I have completed the two Gilmore Girls hats for the 2021 visit and DD's pom poms arrived and I sewed them on too :)

They look good, have packed them away.

I will work on DS Mrs Claus and the Carollers this year and then start some things for Miss A and Mr E.

I went out with my friend on Thursday, it was swelteringly hot, amazing what you will endure to go to the shops :). Bunnings was like a sauna, though I did pick up some things for DH as his birthday approaches. Hope they are useful to him, I have no idea what they are for :). I usually ask for a list but took advantage of the opportunity to get him a gift he didn't know was coming. We shall see ..... :)

We both love going to second hand stores and browsing so it was a lovely time. I am quite isolated up here and took advantage of seeing people and bustling was great. Not so when Hubby goes out he cant wait to get home :).

Thanks for stopping by, for you lovely comments,

Hugs Christine

    Like the hats! emoticon
    In the hot weather, shopping- going in and out of Air conditioning is preferable getting in my steps.

    You do amazing things with yarn. Sorry you are having such extreme temps. emoticon
    Yesterday we had snow, sleet and finished with freezing rain. I spent hours chipping ice off my driveway this morning. I wish could share some of our weather with you. emoticon

    I love your hats—so cute and I bet they are really warm too. Going out with a girlfriend is such fun and love it when they enjoy the same kind of stores/shops that I do. So glad you got some rain and the fires are not near you. Stay safe. ((HUGS))

    The hats look great!

    And yes . . . how fun for the foal to experience rain for the first time!! With baby Henry, I've enjoyed each of his firsts just as I did with our kids . . . and of course there are much more firsts to come.

    Always more firsts to come for us big people too, of course . . . I'm watching out for them!!!

    That’s mostly where I shop anymore is second hand stores and garage sales. What a lovely girl day and just being out and about. Love the Gilmore hats as you prepare for your special visit and seeing those two grandkids and spending time with your dear daughter. You sure are food at what you do! Every thing you make looks perfect and especially when made with so much love

    I love the hat!

    Hope things cool down a little for you. How is Beauty tolerating the heat?? Poor dear. Is she in the guest room yet?? LOL

    Hugs and here's to a good week ahead.

    The hat looks great, as do all of your crafted items! You are quite talented my friend!

    I'm glad that you got to go out and spend some time with a friend hitting the shops. Sometimes a day spent browsing the shops with a friend can recharge the batteries that get run down just going through life.

    I hope the rain was refreshing and enough to wet things for a while at least to keep the danger of fire at bay. I hope you get some cooler temps and maybe even some more rain soon.

    We could use those hats here in snowy Canada. Really pretty.

    Love your work--you are so talented. Thanks for sharing; and glad you got some rain. How nice you got to spend time with your friend. And I also think it is fun with a friend going to second hand shops. (I think my hubby is like yours---I can see his heart is not into it---and he's happy to be home when not working. Take care and glad you showed the hat. It really is lovely!

    The hat is adorable. You should start a business.
