Treasure Tuesday

It's Treasure Tuesday again. I can't believe how quickly this week has gone by.
This weeks treasure really is one that I am sure a lot of you have and consider to be your most precious. It is my

I also promised that I would post a picture of this "Scribble and Stitch" project designed by Janet of Wildcraft Farms that I completed a few years ago now and relates well to todays treasure -

I have just had a very busy but fantastic weekend spent with my family which is what has inspired this weeks Treasure Tuesday. My parents both are celebrating their 60th birthdays this year so my brothers, sisters and myself decided to throw them a surprise party which we had this last weekend. This is the event that I had been doing my scrapbooking project for. I put together an album for them titled "Our Journey, Our Lives" and did pages that related to them and each of their children. My sisters helped out by doing the pages that related to them. I haven't had a chance to take any photos of the pages yet but will try to do it this week and post them for you to see.

My parents were totally surprised and had no idea that anything was going on. My brother and sister in law and their two children even came over from Melbourne as part of the surprise.

For current projects that I am working on, well, I have decided to have a go at knitting some socks. I have been inspired by various blogs that I have read and so I did a search on Ravelry and found some easy instructions to make socks in the round. I am not sure how long this will be a WIP but hopefully I will finish them not just one but two.
I have also found a pattern for Sock Monkey Softies through Don't Look Now which I am thinking of making for my neices and nephews for christmas.

Well I think that is enough for now as my sweetheart needs to use the laptop and I want to do a few rows of my sock.
