Is anyone still out there? I've been such a bad blogger lately and I don't even have a good excuse. Things have been fairly quiet for us lately although we did make a trip to Tucson a few weeks ago to visit Pete, Maree, Brendon and their new little arrival Joshua. We had a great time catching up and while we were there went to visit Old Tucson Studios where they have filmed a bunch of movies and tv shows including Little House on the Prairie, Bonanza, Wild Wild West and The Three Amigos. Here's a few snaps from our trip!
Love me a Cowboy!
This set was used in The Three Amigos.
Apart from that, I've been knitting like a crazy woman. I have quite a few finished projects that I haven't got around to posting. The first are my Jaywalker socks:
I love them, they are so bright and HAPPY! Details....

I also finished a scarf for mum's birthday. I didn't get a photo but it is the same as the scarf I knit for my nana for Christmas (shown below):

I'm currently in the process of making a vest for myself, as well as a birthday present for my sister. Photos to follow soon....
In kind of knitting news, a few weeks ago I went to the movies and saw "Music and Lyrics". I really enjoyed it - pretty much what you expect for a Hugh Grant film (and I've got to admit that he's not too hard on the eyes either). I thought that Drew Barrymore wore some really cute clothes too, especially a grey lace cardigan which you can kind of see here and here. I might have to try and find a similar pattern somewhere!
Finally the past few weeks of baking have consisted of:
Week 9: Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookies". This is a recipe I've been using for a while now and one of the easiest!
Week 10: Nothing (hey, I was in Tucson)
Week 11: Banana Choc Chip Muffins
Week 12: Orange Macadamia Nut Cookies
