It's grocery shopping weekend I think? Yeah it is, I just checked what we did last weekend, no shopping.
So. I shan't let it bother me, it's a necessary evil after all.
What are the plans for today?
Dunno. Stew is having a sleep in. He went to bed quite early last night, I was slightly crabby cos it meant I had to stop sewing.
Probably one of the few disadvantages of having my sewing room in the same place as we sleep.
I did do a tiny bit of 'sewing' last night. I wanted to check out me new variegated threads. I made two little samples:
ABOVE: Bex has been busy with her crochet work too... she's made lots of small toys, rattles, blankets etc for friends. And these too... pretty little hats. I quite sure she's hoping for a baby girl!
ABOVE: She made her first owl yesterday too. He turned out really cute I must say. The pattern didn't have the blue inside the owl's wings, she added that herself and I think it looks really neat.
I'm keen to see her next one now.
We are expecting Kelly and Rena for the weekend, they should arrive sometime late this morning.
Whoops! I crept back to bed after feeding the dogs and checking all the news on the 'net, blog etc.
And kinda woke up at around 10.30! Stew got up around 9 and started doing the washing, what a man!
Now it's lunchtime and Kelly just arrived. Still don't know what our day's plans are.
MARLENE: we are going to be out your way tomorrow.... coffee?
Taking Teddy to meet a lady with a view to him being adopted by her.
The last time I tried true 'Free Motion' quilting it was on Lemony, my Husqvarna sewing machine from hell.
I simply COULD NOT get it to work at all, and gave up.
This afternoon I decided to try with McDreamy, and while I've got about 1000 hours practise to get it right, I at least did some:
ABOVE: terrible eh? lol. I've got heaps of time to improve, cos I can't get any worse surely?
Here's something you really shouldn't say to your son:
"Wow, that is really hard!" While looking at a part of his anatomy!...
BUT... let me show you what I was talking about:
ABOVE: he hit his knuckle on a bit of wood just now... and it's immediately swollen up! And it's getting bigger...
End of Day: whoops, I forgot to do it!
