HOME TODAY! NO HOSPICE

As my vehicle does not have a Warrant of Fitness right this minute, I am staying home today.
The car park wardens down in Manurewa are like bloody Nazi's and will ticket me quick as wink... so I'm not taking the chance.
I can little afford the new tyres let alone a freakin' ticket as well.


How typical that I have spent all me money on a new rug... and BOOM... need cash for tyres!  Grrrrr.  
I can pick up me new rug next week.  I will enjoy it anyway!


As ya probably know, Steve and Bex had their 12 week scan yesterday... here is the best picture of their baby:


ABOVE:  this little baby was very, very active... so this is probably the best photo they got.  12 weeks and 2 days... Due 1/1/2013.  Steve objected to me and Bex referring to baby as 'The Rugrat'... so we await a new nickname that meets with his approval.  (he wanted to call baby 'FOE'.... yeah right!)


Now, as I'm not going to Hospice today... I'm gunna sew!  Yes indeedy I am... Yaaaaa.


ONWARD...


ABOVE:  I'm sewing!  I really am.  And I've decided to work on UFO's today  (UnFinished Objects)....so first up is the placemats I SHOULD have finished months ago.

  13. Do you do your binding with handstitching? I find it hard to sew accurately using the sewing machine for the final fold. So I use a zig zag stitch instead to finish up.
