In Santa's Sleigh...

That's where these are now...on their way to my SSCS partner all the way around the world in....shhh it's still a secret.

 Another finish this month is this long shawl. It's Tunisian crochet - a simple lacy pattern - just a slight variation on Tunisian simple stitch. I wanted a long shawl I could swish around my shoulders. Now I'm on the hunt for a wooden peg or pin to help keep it place. Only a season or two late.

At the recent Wine and Food Show, we bought a number of cheeses...well okay... a lot of cheese. DH put the expiry dates on the front so we eat them in the right order. This one didn't last long.
 It was DELICIOUS!!!! We thoroughly recommend it - creamy, buttery, smooth.

Now I have to find out where in Brisbane I can get it.

Wanted - suggestions.
We are putting in another garden bed. I hoping to screen out some neighbours and create an outdoor room. We went to the nursery this morning looking at possible plants. I need fast growers. I'm not young enough to wait years for my green screen to grow. So gardeners out there, what would recommend.

Have a good weekend everyone,
