My friend the wonderful, clever, crafter JenPen has moved to Sydney from NZ and we have been doing lots of craft together. I feel like I have my very own sewing/knitting/crochet teacher available day and night.
She was heading out to the recent Mathilda's Market where I knew Retromummy was going to be selling some of her fabric cheap. I asked Jen to get me some that was suitable for Ben, cute, but boyish. I love what she bought me!
I buy a lot of mags, but have never actually subscribed to any. That is until I bought the first edition of the new SBS food magazine, FEAST. It has wonderful recipes as well as the sories behind them, it's really special.

Multiple hospital visits to the burn clinic.
The tears and obvious terror of your 2 year old, and not being able to do much else, other than cuddle, soothe and try and distract with bubbles, books and wiggles dvds.
Knowing that God was and is with us, and that he is still good.
The prayers of friends and family around the world.
Friends and elders at Church laying hands on Ben, anointing him with oil, and praying for healing.
The way that God chose to answer those prayers with better than expected healing, and the avoidance of skin grafts, after we were told it was almost certain he would need one (or more)
I managed to pick up a few bargains like a cardigan for Sarah reduced from $139 to $10!!
I also bought this bag of scraps ($10) which looked like it could make a great scarf.
And here it is! (As with all my sewing, it could use a good iron and the threads cut off).

Tonsillitis for the 2 grown ups. Dave went to the Dr, got the AB's with a repeat and we are sharing. True love.
On a positive note, the house is coming along. Not sure where this girl came from, but she is keeping an eye on all those tradies.

After reading this post from Ann Voskamp on developing habits, I chose 3 daily practices to work on:
1. Reading my Bible
2. Eating 2 pieces of fruit
3. Doing some kind of exercise
Ben loves helping me read the Bible.
The one habit that I have struggled to develop is the fruit eating!

Thanks to the fabulous knitting teacher Jen (who has recently moved to Sydney from NZ - check out her blog, she is very clever!) , I am now rocking the knit 2 purl 2. My rib scarf may actually be finished by winter...
I am a newly converted Veggo, and loving it. I feel great!
Our MAKEDO arrived and we have made so many great things with it. Put this stuff on your Christmas list!

I discovered this blog and the author Ann Voskamp not very long ago. I feel incredibly blessed. The way she writes is beautiful, and the words point me in the direction of Christ and his Word.
I have ordered her new book from Amazon, and if it is as good as I think it will be, I will order copies for my girlfriends too.
