Thanks a bunch!

I made my Farmer Boy a bunch of rainbow carrots.

The truth is I've had a crappy old week. I've been sick, Miss Pepper has been sick and the rest of the family have sort of lived off the bare minimum. But he's been there, holding it all together the whole time. He's been feeding, driving, cleaning, shopping, dressing and even plaiting hair. He is so ace.

But of course he should have been out doing farmer things. I know I'm worried about how far behind I am, I can only imagine how far behind on his to-do list he is.

So I made him a bunch of carrots to say thank you! I got the knitting pattern from this book.

Rainbow carrots have sort of been our signature crop for the last few years and I thought he deserved a bunch.

He'll most probably tie them to the mirror of his tractor or his ute but now I'm thinking I might need a bunch of my own for my wool basket.

Thank you all so much for your wishes of health this week. I hope your weekend is all kinds of wonderful.

See ya. XX

  2. It seems like the perfect way to thank him. Our visitor has come down with gastro and is leaving tomorrow and I am praying that he takes his bugs with him so that we wont have sickies all over the place. Wishing everyone a healthy weekend.

    And you have inspired and encouraged me. I started a knitting project last night. I know! Shocking isn't it? I'll have to blog about it tomorrow to prove it!

  10. He's certainly a keeper - even more so if he appreciates such crafty goodness!

    My Boy tried to grow a carrot rainbow; he planted the seeds but all but one came up orange!

    Hope everyone is all better now...

Thanks so much for stopping by...

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the way....so I'll apologise now, just in case.
