Unfortunately their technique of lying on the weeds in a brave attempt to smother them, isn't really that effective.
Nor was nibbling at some errant grass. The idea had merit, it was just a little slow in the execution.
In the end, we decided weeding in the hot sun wasn't it all it was cracked up to be, and to retire until later when it's cooler.
Spring has sprung in Sydney and today is a really warm, sunny day. All of the flowers are in full bloom and look and smell lovely. My vegie patch is sadly neglected and over-run with weeds though, so I think I'll be spending today getting it ready for some spring planting.
Yesterday, I made another bag from the pattern my birthday fairy sent me. This one is plainer, but has a cute little pocket at the front.
And from now on in, I guess a lot of my crafts will be devoted to some of the Christmas swaps coming up so I'll have to restrain myself from posting photos so I don't ruin the surprise. Or get a little creative and take some teaser shots, like the one below.

The tote is just the perfect size. I think it will fast become one of my favourite, most-used bags.
I put a magnetic snap closure on it, to secure all my goodies. I bought these recently from Vintage Inspirations which I can thoroughly recommend. I placed an order on a Thursday night and had my goodies in my mailbox on Monday morning! And the snap closures were something like 25% of the price I have seen in some other places. They had lots of other bag goodies too.

And this gorgeous bag kit:
