PINKY... AND FINGERS CROSSED

So... 'PINKY' is finished.. and it rocks! I have yet to make a bag I don't like! Every one is cute in it's own way.

I am now taking a break from sewing for a few days because...

THE MACHNE GOES BACK TODAY for the 7th TIME. And if it EVER... EVER... EVER craps out on me again after it comes back they HAVE TO REPLACE OR REFUND. I have been nice enough about this eh?

Therefore, this morning I am going to Howich to drop off said machine, then I am going to come home and do.... blog reading! I need to catch up on what you buggers have been doing while I've been enjoying my weekend! lol

And after that I might just do some lovely housework. Stew's sister Khady is coming by this evening to pick up the bags I have ready for her Gallery... I hope she likes them!

ONWARD...

11.48am, just got home from dropping the machine off and getting the groceries. I tried out Pak N Save in Botany, not a bad shop. GUESS HOW MUCH I SPENT? Come on.... guess!.. it is a fortnight's worth....(and NO BLONDIE, ya won't win a prize!) lol

WHOOPS! I am putting the groceries away and...

Found these... ummmm.. can ya tell we don't eat many potatoes now? Can ya? *smiles*

End of Day: have had a lovely visit from Stew's sister.. and a lovely dinner too. AND she loved the bags for her Gallery.. which was neat. Good boost for my confidence. Time for bed! nite nite.

  5. Assuming it is a weekly shop it would be $200 but am sure it will be more as your weekly shopping is heaps more than what I would spend for a family of 4 lol....

  14. I can't even guess on the groceries. I don't cook much and don't much like to grocery shop, but I bet it was a bunch. I agree that all your bags are cute in their own one-of-a kind way. Once again, good luck with the machine.

  20. Reminds me of my in-laws. Sometimes they forget to bring in their groceries and the vegetables and fruits end up spoiling in their car on hot days.
