Jennifer Rose

gilly looks so cute with her me first look :p

love that colette dress, its very pretty and posh looking :)

i need to find a pair of rainbow socks, or the wool to crochet a pair :)


OOh - love the Boo socks. Retina searing but such fun.


I also thought Julia's speech was brilliant and felt very proud that she never let the bullies get the better of her - well done and looking forward to "the woman after that" too !
love those doggy antics at the gate - its so nice to have a welcoming home-coming :)
the boots look very special and also loving the jelly-roll quilt and rainbow socks xo


I thought it was utterly ridiculous getting rid of Julia to put Kevin back in. They ousted him in the first place with her and now decided to go with him again. I think they should have just gotten someone totally new if they werent happy. Your boo socks look great, love all the colors.


Love the socks and the tumbling blocks! And the pups are so adorable with their tricks and their greetings. I am very tempted to order the Colette dress pattern but I won't have time to sew for a while. Can't wait to see yours!


I love MrsDrWho's socks. When we were on our cruise last year to NZ I nearly bought a ball of this yarn from a wool shop in Dunedin. I still bought some Opal, but it was a cotton blend. I also bought some wool/possum mix :)

Gilly & Peri look so cute waiting for you at the gate....my naughty little daisy broke a paling on our side gate today & escaped. She knows I can't catch her & was missing for about 20 minutes. I was getting very worried as she doesn't have much road sense. Fortunately our road is very quiet.

I still think feminism has such a long way to go. When we can refer to a female Prime Minister without even a thought that she is a female or a male Prime Minister a male for that matter, then I think there will be true equality.


I thought Julia's speech was very graceful, unlike Kevin, who did not acknowledge any of her achievements as PM. UGH. Still he's not as hideous as Tony. Sorry to get a bit political, I'll stop now. Except to agree with ou, I do hope there will be another woman, and that Australia will be more deserving of a female leader, and show appropriate respect.

I like that Colette dress pattern very much. Not sure it has pockets? If not, it should! I also love your jelly roll quilt variation, that looks very effective.


I admire your former PM and love her quote about 'the woman after that...' If only the US had a woman who could say that!
The green boots with orange stripey lining are fantastic- perfect color combination- flaunt the lining!


Lovely socks especially the Boo socks as the colors are gorgeous. I am also into knitting socks too and I have so many patterns in mind.


I'm very excited to see your Colette dress - it is very pretty!

I do have a soft spot for those labrador faces :)


i cant even think about the JG/KR situation without steam coming out of my ears. the rampant sexism and misogyny was worse than anything ive heard in australian public discourse for a long time, and people who deny that are living in cloud cuckoo land. grrrr. she was most gracious, and made me cry. i will miss her in public life. and yes im with rosered, pockets in that dress no? your girls are very cute, i would be tempted to give them kisses on the nose poking through the fence like that!
