Lawns

It's raining again - usually the start of November has meant sunshine, but not this year. I am sure I can see the grass growing before my eyes. The lawnmower broke down again on the weekend. Chris has been talking about getting a ride on one for ages, so I think between dealing with the crappy lawnmower and this great news today he might get his wish. Then hopefully our summer weekends might be a little less stressful and we can all spend some time doing things we enjoy rather then swearing at the lawnmower.
A doll and some little shoes we dropped off today for a new baby called Charlotte.
I've been experimenting with whales and I think I need to do a bit more experimenting. It is kind of half way there.

We got our new lawnmower after the last interest rate cut - I do believe that lawnmowers are the new 'black' as my friends also just got a new one. Is that all the 30 somethings do these days? Mow lawns? I think so...

It must be the time of year for lawnmowers to break down. We knew of 3 people whose broke down last month. Love the pressie, so adorable and the whale is very cute.

What a wonderful gift! They will be cherished. You are on the right track with that whale! I love your translation of the water coming from the spout. You must have such patience!

Love all your recent posts Kate. What a wonderful 1st quilt you've made and even better that it is still alive (only 5 years old isn't it?)
Love your pheasant shirts. Would love one myself.

Kate,
about the whale: I like the idea about moving the eye. I also think maybe the head should be larger/taller.
just a thought ^_^
