Latest finishes and a close call

First, here are my latest finishes.

1.  Red House in Winter by LHN





2.  Frosty Flakes by LHN.  I got most of this finished on Sunday - the V8's were racing at Bathurst  so watched that on TV all day, then it was the final of  The Block on TV that night.  Both had dramatic finishes.  I grabbed some time last night while dinner was cooking and added the beads before I had to go out.




I'm still working on old wips.  Next is another small LHN ornament - Pear Tree.

I'll have less stitching time for the rest of this month.  I like to sit down and stitch for an hour at night when all my jobs are done, but DD has amateur theatre performances over the coming 2 weeks as well as sport and I will be out 5 nights a week with her for the next few weeks.  DH is going to be in Vancouver next week so I need to be organized.



I was driving DD home from school last Thursday afternoon when we witnessed a car accident just in front of us.  It was on a busy suburban street, lots of traffic going the same way as we were, but still moving close to the speed limit - 60km/h.  A 4WD coming the other way swerved into our lane and hit a car head on, a third car couldn't stop and hit the second car from behind, then ended up on the footpath.  We were 2 cars behind and I think I said a bad word as I was braking.  All I can remember is seeing car parts flying in the air and a car shooting across the road.  I was amazed there were only minor injuries.  The driver of the middle car was fairly shaken up.  The driver of the third car was a learner and did a fantastic job - he had some facial grazes from the airbag and his mum hurt her wrist.  The second car would have been a write off and the third car had lots of damage to the front.   Not an experience I'm in a hurry to repeat!


I'm enjoying the warmer weather here as we head into summer.  It's still a bit cool some mornings and very dry.  We could do with some rain, but not if is accompanied by violent storms like they just got down in NSW.

Blogger seems to be playing up.  I'm only getting email notifications about some comments?  Sorry if I haven't replied to you.

Wishing you all flying needles and safe driving.
Until next time.
