Sewing, Food, and Stuff
That is Kimba. No particular reason, just that she looks gorgeous in this pic. :)
Yesterday morning I was wondering what to do with my free day. So many options. I decided to clear my study desk off...
And turn it into my sewing table. :)
I spent the morning sewing with Friends DVD's playing on the laptop next me. I managed to get the blocks for another quilt for me and Ross finished. I just need to buy the fabric for the sashings now, so that will be next month before it is finished. Then I will have 2 tops finished and just need to quilt them. I am hoping they will be done before the end of winter as they are for snuggling on the couch, but there is a pretty big time factor involved, and with my studies I am not sure if they will be done to use this year.
I also got some filler blocks done for a group quilt I am putting together. This is going to be for a gift, so I will not be able to post any pics until it has been given and received. :)
I spent the rest of the afternoon doing exactly what I had planned. Absolutely nothing. :) It was awesome.
This morning we decided to have pancakes for breakfast. I cheated and used this.
Only because we still had it in the cupboard. Although this says "No Artificial Flavours or Colours" on the container, it does have preservatives including an anti-caking agent (which is nasty stuff) so I will not be buying it again. From now on pancakes will need to be made from scratch.
I was planning on having it them with Maple Syrup, but it had gone off, so I had some lovely organic honey instead.
Yummmmmooooooo. Now I am waiting for Mum to come over to teach me how to make my own bread. I can not wait!
