More baby knitting and liberty lawn hexagon quilt

 Love knitting these little cardis from baby bamboo. Knitting in one piece  from neck down is very easy and fun to do.
Have begun a hexagons quilt from 2 inch hexagons, my ambition is a king sized quilt, ha! I am making it from Liberty tana lawn only, I have been collecting  it since the 70s so I have quite a stash. Anyway this as far as I've got.....

Finished the cot quilt. The main orange-y liberty fabric is very quirky with houses on fire, factories, windmills, man working on allotment garden, prams, bears in racing cars, quite odd but lovely.

Olive picking

I went olive picking at our friend's olive grove yesterday. We harvested about 100 kilos of olives which will produce about 5 litres of olive oil. Makes you appreciate olive oil even more. However Flinders Island does produce particularly beautiful olive oil. (Correction we picked about 140 kilos which will produce about 18 litres of olive oil)
