........ I posted an update!!
Our Fathers Day Beanie project was a roaring success. I collected 297 beanies and distributed them between 5 Aged Care facilities. Every man in aged care received a beanie and the excess I gave to Meals on Wheels to be given to whoever they thought might not otherwise receive a Fathers Day gift.
They were all packaged seperately with a little greeting card and I made sure that each nursing home received all differ...Read Full Post »

My last blog posting was in March -- I cant believe it's been that long......... well, no, I tell a lie....... I've said many times before I am the world's worst blogger...... it's not really a surprise so much time has passed since my last entry!
Obviously a lot has happened in those months both personally and to knit4charities.
Personally - we spent 5 weeks away from home, house-sitting for my niece and having a holiday with our grandchildren. Ano...Read Full Post »

This week I spent quite some time with a new friend who has battled breast and other forms of cancer for 21 years. It was amazing the information I gained from her regarding headwear and prosthesis.
If you've read my blog you will know that knit4charities has recently been knitting titbits (breast prosthesis) for mastectomy survivors. Until this week I had never seen an actual proper prosthetic! Now I have seen one I have realised that our knitted or croche...Read Full Post »

and I am going on holidays tomorrow YAY!!!
Well, I tell a lie because I still take my work with me If I left it for 3 weeks it would take me 6 months to catch up so much easier to do a little each day -- keep on top of things.
We will be spending Christmas with DH's cousins in Bendigo. So looking forward to seeing them again and also catching up with some of our knit4charities group members while I am there.
I am just so organised!!! Normally...Read Full Post »

Well that's my excuse!!
Since I last posted an entry my DH has been in hospital having his hip replaced. An amazing operation that seems to remove the pain along with the damaged joint. This is what is taking up all my time -- assisting him with the things he cant do because he's not allowed to bend his hip joint more than 90 degrees. And, of course making sure he does all his physio exercises, going to appointments etc etc.
I did get some knitting done while...Read Full Post »

8 rugs finish and still more squares to put together They are all packed up ready to send off to various charities.
I played around with one of them adding a band that extends beyond the width of the rug, put in some button holes and buttons -- voila -- a wheelchair lapghan. It secures around the waist to stop it from falling off. This one is going to a nursing home!
