a rainbow crochet cushion - gifted to a special teacher.
Two 10th birthday presents, a knitted light weight vest
and a crocheted cropped cardi, (do you recognise the yarn Jodie?).
 2 crocheted cotton scarves, also birthday gifts.

Another crocheted cotton scarf for a dear friend.
 A very basic and mindless knitted triangle scarf for myself.
and almost finished birthday presents...
I am determined to finish this shawl for myself this week! 
And then I am getting started on the growing Christmas present list of things to make!
What are you making this week?

All of my crochet and knit project details can be seen on my Ravelry Project page.

in my garden;

there is lots of flowering spring colour;

and plenty happening in and around the vegie patch too;
 silver beet, lettuce, cabbage (that hasn't been eaten by a pesky possum since I put in the solar lights) and leeks.

sunflowers, parsley, baby spinach, spring onions, and garlic....
and new beetroot and snow pea seedlings are on their way.
 In the old bath tub I have sunflowers growing well, also broccoli, butter beans, and continental parsley. In the pot is lemon thyme.
These freshly picked beets have been cooked and preserved for Christmas! 
The 4 large beets filled 2 medium jars with goodness!
