A Round Tuit 175

Hello again and welcome once again to another Round Tuit.

Today I wanted to share a couple of pictures with you. At this time of year here in Cairns, there are a lot of controlled burns around us, so the air gets quite smoky at times. This makes for some pretty sunsets, and beautiful reflections in the leaves:

I took heaps of pictures, but none really seemed to do the light justice!

Oh well - maybe you can imagine a bit more from the photos!

Let's get to this week's party anyway.

Tuits are very hard to come by, especially the round ones. For years people have been saying, "I'll do it as soon as I get a round tuit". Well now you can have one of your very own, and all those jobs that have needed doing will finally get done!
Here's my favourites from last week's party:
First of all, these super cool 
crochet spiderwebs from Fitzbirch Crafts:
I'm going to try this and have shown my daughter who is also learning to crochet so she can try too!
For lots more great ideas, head on over to

Next,  another Halloween craft - a neat 
Bats in the Belfry Mobile from Sew Can Do:
Always lots of fabulous ideas at:
Sew Can Do

Finally, this neat 
DIY secret diary from Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom:
So simple! I love it - and so will my kids!
