What's been happening today?
Not much here. Just a normal old Friday that seems to have come around extra quick this week.
I went down to my parents place today and had a nice lunch and pottered in the garden a bit, we visited a strawberry farm in Red Hill only to find it doesn't open for the season till next week. Doh.
Andre is still home recovering from his op, (think - lots of computer time) I think he is looking very well and is definitely ready for school next week.
We have a kind of long weekend here, with the Melbourne Cup running on Tuesday and a public holiday, so lots of people take Monday off as well. Technically the boys have school, but lots of kids are away so not much is done as far as school work goes. I think my boys want to go to school, so it will just be a normal day for us. Still feels like a holiday though.
I'm going to spend the weekend trying to restore some order in a few rooms here, cleaning and tidying a big mess. And I should be able to fit in some crafting and cooking and gardening if I try hard!
Thought I would show you a couple of things I started yesterday (got a bit tired of the flower motif, so mixing it up a bit). The little shape at the top is my first attempt at a heart, I think with a few modifications it will be right for some cute Chrissy decorations.
Also started another cushion in the Bendigo cottons, felt like doing some rows, and something small was just the thing. Maybe another thing for Christmas?
Had a quick look in the Oppy on my way home and found these nice aqua, blue and lime check blankets. There were 2 single bed size, and a bit of a bargain, so I had to grab them.
I did think of Claire over at Sweet Birdy Love and her lovely upcycled blanket toys when I saw them! I have a few ideas for these, involving the sewing machine.
Not sure if they are wool or acrylic, does anyone know how to tell the difference?
Anyway, I'm sure they can be used for something fun, such nice colours!
OK better go and do something!
Have a great day!
