Mr E and Sam have been busy sawing the fallen trees...
...and I have been baking focaccia, and serving simple meals from what needs to be eaten first.
Yesterday and today I baked my olive focaccia, and we finished the salami, cheeses, and fruit.
A small food delivery was made to Woolies last night - flour, pasta sauce - so I have solved the no Self Raising Flour woes. Tomorrow I'll bake a chocolate cake in celebration. ;-)
The bridge is open again as the flood waters have dropped, but we have been told more food supplies will still take a while to get here. That's ok! We have enough for a couple of weeks because I am being very creative.
Miss Sophie, or Princess Sophie as I have begun calling her, has taken a liking to my office chair...
It's like having a hot water bottle in my lower back every time I sit down. She has begun to take over the house, and her 'Princess' title has not been lost on Blossom, who can be heard whispering into Sophie's ear "I'm the real Princess!".
I finally got back to finishing items for the New Beginnings sewing kits this afternoon, just need some more stuffing for the rest of the pincushions.
I have made six from THIS pattern, using 10" layer cake squares. They were all ready for stuffing when I realised I only had a small amount of Polyfill left, so could only complete one.
...and I'll finish stuffing the remaining ones tomorrow.
I also have one pincushion to stuff from these sets I made...
If you want to make a complete kit, or send items to help put a kit together, please email me. We have extended the posting date to March 15th, as the disasters keep the amount needed constantly increasing.
For more information about the 'New Beginnings' kits read THIS on our Gum Tree Designers blog.
I will draw the random winner of my January Challenge tomorrow, and finally share some wonderful Show & Tell photos you've emailed me. Only a few days late... :-)
