Hello, hello , hello. I feel like it has been ages since I last posted but , like everyone else, we have been settling in to the new normal.  I now shop for my parents and pick up their prescriptions leaving everything on their doorstep. They are very active people but they both have plenty to keep them occupied. Dad has his workshop, vegie garden and his bees to look after . Mum loves tending to her garden, stitching, knitting and reading. Both my parents experienced the polio epidemic as children and WW2 restrictions here in Australia so they are quite happy staying home.

I did the happy dance this morning when my parcel of yarny yumminess finally arrived from the UK. I love Stylecraft Special DK  yarn as it is machine washable and feels so lovely. My 3 year old munchkin  loves snuggling under my crocheted blankets so I am going to crochet a blanket for him to have at his home. He keeps telling me " bwoo is my favrit colour grandma" so I ordered a few balls of the yarn in different blues, a cream and a grey.  I am going to use Attic 24's Dune pattern .

I love crocheting with Armour crochet hooks so I ordered 3 more different sizes to add to the 3 I already have. Before you ask, no, I do not have any association with the brand of yarn or crochet hooks, I just love using them. 

I have made progress with my little hand pieced quilt. It looks a bit messy but all the 2 inch blocks are placed in order.

I haven't been stitching much despite all the available time as I have been quite tired. I had 2 carcinomas cut out a week ago, one from my forearm and one from my cheek. The one on my forearm was ok but the one on my cheek was cancer. I am so glad I went to the skin doctor when I did because I was thinking if postponing it until the pandemic was over. Just call me Scarface now lol. 

Keep safe and well.

Angel Blessings.
