weekend links

Thursday morning fog and frost

Good morning! Or good afternoon whichever the case may be. I wanted to thank you all for the encouraging words yesterday. Violet seems to be returning to her normal sunny self. It is always helpful to remind oneself that "tomorrow is always fresh with no mistakes in it" - Anne of Green Gables.

  • If you don't already know (I didn't) this was a great little tutorial for a lined zippered pouch.
  • Though you may heard of this by now,  (perhaps via these lovely bloggers sites here , here and here) if you haven't please take a minute to read.  If you feel strongly about this issue it is very simple to download and email a letter to the minister.
  • How adorable is this for a little girl? Also instructions for the girl-at-heart.
  • Make a simple colouring book to add to presents for little ones. I did this one yesterday, tying with twine, and gave one to my niece and nephew with handmade pencil cases.
  • Currently knitting this cute design

Hoping that you all have a simply wonderful weekend.


  1. Oh have you been taking photos near our house, brrrr, that is so cold. I left my children at school yesterday, it was still -5C, brrrr, Canberra, love Posie

  2. That's a beautiful photo even if it is very cold. Have a lovely weekend x

  3. That line from Anne with an E is my favourite quote of all time and has got me through many a difficult day of mothering. The frost is gorgeous and so is Olive, even when she is under the weather, so much easier to forgive them when they are so cute. melx

  4. Goodness brain not working, I meant Violet , but she does look like a little Olive to me too. melx
