I couldn't think of anything to blog about today at all... so I asked Stew.
He said why didn't I work on a UFO and blog about that?
So that's what I'm doing.
I started making this cloth for the BBQ table before Christmas:
So, I'm not going to use it as a tablecloth now, I've decided to make it bigger and have it as a quilt or quilted duvet cover. Maybe for Griffin's bed?
It's certainly 'boyish' enough.
So today I will work on adding extra length to it, and then add borders to make it fit his bed.
I don't have much of the matching fabrics left, so will just have to work with what I've got.
Keera only has half a day at kindy today, so I will try and get as much done as possible before she gets home.
I'm doing well with the tracking ... having the 'accountable' Magic Tracker sure is helping!
I THINK I'VE BEEN VERY BORED, FOR A LONG TIME... ha ha ha!
Ha ha! On my way back from dropping the kids off at school/kindy I decided to go to Aqua Fit again.
So I got in me togs and was about to head out the door when I spied all the bloody envelopes and invitations for my Mum's 80th Birthday sitting on the dining table.
DAMMIT! Dammit... I took me togs off (and put clothes on.. and yes, I needed to clarify that, before some twat suggested I was naked!), and proceeded to start putting them in envelopes and addressing them all.
What a shit job! It's taken me 3 full hours to get 60 invites done, and I've run outta invites and I need half a dozen more. HALF. A. DOZEN. I will print them out on me computer, stuff going into town for just 6 invites to be printed out. *sigh*
So funny, as I'm about to head out to post said invites, and me Mum rings. We yak some, and she adds two more names to the list. So now I need 8 more invites.
And I've run out of time, and will have to post them after I pick up Keera now. Maybe once the big kids are home and can watch her for me.
I don't want to drag her into town, it's RAINING. Like ... rain all day so far! BLISS
I hope it's raining down in Christchurch, those poor buggers are battling an out of control fire on the outskirts of the city. Homes have been lost, hundreds evacuated and people must be so scared.
I just read the news and no, they haven't had any rain, and the fires burn on.
Hit a bit of a low this afternoon... so just sat and did some hand sewing. I also put a comfy lazy boy in my sewing room, so I can sit in it and watch TV in comfort ... and do the hand sewing in there now.
Stew is home, and has gone to get some fish n chips for dinner. Gotta have one night off a week from cooking!
Just finished getting the last of the invites into envelopes and addressed. I managed to track down the last 3 people on my list thanks to Facebook!
Gotta love that FB sometimes.
Bloody tired, off to bed soon.
