What a big weekend this was. It may have been Blossom's 18th birthday weekend, but we were all caught up in the celebration! By Sunday morning we were all tuckered out and in need of sleep.
Late Sunday afternoon Blossom and I decided to sneak out alone, and drive up the mountain to the Heritage Tea Rooms for a restful afternoon tea under the trees....
It was so pretty in the sunset, and the drive back down the mountain was absolutely breathtaking.
Today it was life as usual, and after driving her to work, I came home to brew my first cuppa for the day while I enjoyed quiet time with my Bible. Then it was time for catching up on washing, vacuuming, washing Bob-the-dog, ironing, dishes, and general tidying. Thankfully I had taken time yesterday to prepare a large pot of soup, so for lunch I nourished my tired self with spicy vegetable soup, and some gluten free sun-dried tomato and spinach muffins...delightful!
Last night I finished writing the next issue of Elefantz HOME, and emailed it away to my precious proof-readers. I don't know what I would do without them! Thank you girls. xxx
It's all done now - mistakes repaired, and just about ready to be emailed to my subscribers...
Before the weekend I finished my version of Amy's free design. I really love these fabrics and they make my little table runner shine!
This will find it's way to a friend very soon; someone who I think lives this out in her life all the time.
I am in a small online swap group, and our current theme is Winter Wonderland. My partner was Maree, and this is what I sent her. A quilt stitchery bound in lace, my favourite book on knitting, and a bag I made and filled with pampering goodies...
Any day now a parcel will arrive for me, but I have no idea who my partner is. Very exciting!!
I found a few things online recently that I'd love to make. I am hoping that over winter I'll have some 'holiday' time where I can sew just for the joy of it, and not as an occupation. These look like fun...
