My new project. I bought this yarn on Wednesday.

It's 30% corn and 70% acrylic. Who'd of thought of corn, huh? It feels really nice. I thought i'd go for another beret. This one turned out MUCH better. I LOVE it! I will actually wear it...although with the weather these days i probably don't need it. I crocheted it with a 4.5mm hook.

Finally Daddy's boy.
Nicholas never used to really like his daddy. He was super attached to me. Still is. But since he was forced to spend 4 days straight with his daddy while I was in hospital with Lachlan, he discovered that daddy is kinda alright.

I've finished!!
My new beret. I'm not sure i'm really a beret person but i'll give it a go. It was a great project to work on.

Here it is! THE beret. I finished it and then had to undo half of it because it was wrong. There doesn't seem to be any decreases in the pattern when there should be. So i'm doing it again.

I LOVE the puff stitch.

I feel restless. Life is pretty good at the moment i guess but i still feel like there should be more. There should be more to life then housework and cleaning up after kids. More to life then the mundane routine. I read, i knit, i crochet, i sew, i talk to friends but it doesn't seem enough. I don't know why. I have a husband and 3 gorgeous boys. We spend time together and have fun. But it feels like something is missing. What? I don't know. I asked Graham this morning when we are going to Canberra. I need something to look forward to.

Another thing thats getting me down - my MOF board. Why does the actions of one person have to affect the whole group? It makes me so sad. I feel like my friends are slowly disconnecting themselves and it makes me want to do the same. It makes me want to leave. But can i leave my friends who have been there for me for 5 years? If i leave the board will anyone keep in touch with me? Am I a REAL friend? Can i really be friends with people i've never met? But at the same time i need friends. I need people i can talk to about anything and everything. I need the sisterhood that comes with that. I love my 'girls'. Sometimes they are the only thing that makes me do my housework.

On Saturday we went to Brisbane. I was supposed to go to the Temple but we got lost and by the time we found our way there we were too late. So instead we took some photos up on the Kangaroo Point cliffs. There is a stone gazeebo there that i thought would make a cool background. I've been looking for cool backgrounds now thanks to my friend Misty. :) Here's some pics that i took of Nicholas and Graham. Ethan didn't come with us so he missed out. And i have some new cute pics of Lachlan. He's 3 mths old now and growing up so fast. I may cry.
