The next half year

Well the next half of the year has started....

the curry is slowly stewing away in the oven, a great way to use left over veg and odd bags of frozen veg. 
This will be for dinner tonight after going out and enjoying a high tea at the Hilton Surfers Paradise to celebrate a girlfriends yes I am still 50 birthday. We are both the same age only differ by 3 and a bit months.

Beds made, dishes done, washing out and now time to finish off the vest i started over 18 months ago. All joined now but to sew in ends and sew on the buttons.
 I am going to sit in the sun and complete this.

To bring you up to date I have completed a cushion cover out of some lovely yarn from sirdar that they no longer make

and I have finished Tony's beanie, but silly me didn't take a photo before giving the beanie to Tony.There are 2 pompoms that i made using the pompom makers... and i also didn't take a photo of these either!

There are several other UFO's in the pipeline like a basket for storing things on my vanity in the bathroom,
socks....well i am really going to have to put my thinking cap on for these as i half left them in the foot and ....
and a red crochet bag...
and i made a poncho last year using a mohair yarn from patons/cleckheaton and the pattern short changed me by at least 8 this is going to be undone and you know how difficult mohair is to unravel once its been crochet/knitted..this will be converted to a rug as a Christmas i better get going on this.
never mind the cardigan i want to make up for myself for this winter....
the birthday present for my sister 
for my mother
for friends
not enough time in the days....

i better go and stir the curry.
