Last week if you'd asked me what day it was, I would have had no idea! That week flew by.
This week? Nah. It's dragging.
It's mid week and I feel like I've done nothing at all.
Housework. Pottering around the house, and bugger all else.
Feeling a bit 'meh'. Looking forward to the weekend, when Steve, Bex and the boys arrive. That will be when our little Hobbit Playhouse will get assembled. And more importantly, it will GET OUT of my sewing room!
ABOVE: I'm still working on the bloody number sign!
The numbers are not affixed yet. I'm playing around with blue glass pretties. And I have to drill the holes in the top to attach it to the doo dacky above. But ... it will get done and put up THIS WEEKEND.
Do you think it's better than the 1st attempt? Just plain rectangular, no black border. Just the blue pretty at the bottom?
I think Lacy and I will go into Hamilton today, just to blow some cobwebs and crabbiness away.
Shopping is great as a de-stressor eh? *smiles*
Soooooo.... On our way into Hamilton, I decided to go to... Morrinsville. Just because I can.
ABOVE: I wanted to check out Wright's Fabrics again.
Milton Wright has the best selection of Batiks in the country!
I drool openly in his shop. *smiles*
ABOVE: That's Milton. I told him I'd put him on my blog, free advertising! And oh... look above his head and to the left a little!
That's one of my coasters! I gave it to him a few years ago, and he's had it displayed in his shop ever since. How cool!
ABOVE: I wonder who did that for him? Wasn't me. But it's cute.
ABOVE: I got these fabrics from him... really lovely, funky colours. The one on the right is for my new Dresden Plate Quilt... which I haven't even started yet.
After Morrinsville, we went the 'back' way to Gordonton and stopped and looking in a craft shop... but the only thing I loved was almost $2,000, so I left it there.
ABOVE: Lacy bought these bits 'n' bobs in David's Emporium, for Keera.
And that's our day trip done. Lacy has now gone out for a drive... to Tauranga I THINK.
Had a quiet afternoon, which was nice. Feeling really, really crabby about stuff that is out of my hands, yet I get dragged into the middle of shit. Grrrrr. Sometimes I wish I wasn't soft.
