I can change my mind eh?
Like... totally go back on something I said just last week!
I can't HELP it. I saw some super cute things at Ribbon Rose yesterday, and I just have to make them! NOW.
ABOVE: I got these 4 fabrics to make giraffes with! I mean... I couldn't resist! They had a giraffe made up in the shop and it looked so ADORABLE! I must make some!
And the teddy too. So, so cute.
Sooooo.... this means UFO's are once again... going on the back burner. Oh Dear. 😆😉
It's patchwork group this morning, so I'm going to take along the paper pattern, and copy it onto card, then read the pattern and suss it out. I'm not that crash hot at following patterns, so it might take a bit of working out!
Before I head out to Patchwork Group, I am going to ring the Vet and get Tallulah an appointment. She stinks. I mean, really stinks. I think she's got an ear infection, or something like that. She's just super smelly for NO apparent reason.
But, she's been scratching her ear, so maybe that's the problem? We will find out.
ABOVE: Amazing 'breaking wave' clouds over Palmerston North this morning! Wish I'd been there to see that.
Tallulah sees the Vet this afternoon... so all going well she should be sorted out soon.
12.34 pm: And I'm home from patchwork. I got the paper pattern transferred onto card, next step is to cut out the fabric. Exciting!
Everything is growing like CRAZY in the garden! You'd think it was Spring...
ABOVE: I'm not a huge fan of camellia's, but this one smells lovely.
ABOVE: It's been so wet, we have fungus/toadstools growing!
Also, plenty of winter fruit coming along too.
ABOVE: I may only have a small vege patch, but it's plentiful! My rhubarb plants survived being transferred to this little planter box.
ABOVE: This native plant had a baby. I wonder if I can move the baby to another area?
ABOVE: this tree amazes me! It's tripled in size since I bought it... and that was only a few months ago!
And that's all for now. It's like a sauna again today, the only relief I can get from the constant heat is to sit in front of a fan.
One of my new blog readers (Janice) told another blogger about me and my blog a few days ago.
So, Sue W left me a comment saying 'Hi', and I did the same back. Then she told another blogger friend of her's, also named Sue, and we got in touch too.
And today, Sue # 2 popped in to say 'Hi' in person!
We got on like a house on fire, and have organised to have lunch on Friday, here at a new pub... both Sue's and me. And according to Sue # 2, I have to be called 'Sue' too! lol
I don't know how that will work out...
but anyway, here's the two Sue's:
ABOVE: Sue # 2 is a Hamiltonian and SueW is an import from England. I am really looking forward to seeing them both on Friday. *smiles*
Thanks for getting in touch girls, and thanks Janice for starting the ball rolling. (((hugs)))
I took Tallulah to the Vet. As I suspected, she has an ear infection. So now we have ear cleaner, ointment, steroids and eye drops for her. All going well, she should be feeling much better in about a week.
In half an hour I am out again, this time to Weight Watchers. I will be returning the 'Magic Tracker' and starting to use my own tracker.
It certainly does help tracking everything that goes in your gob!
I am expecting a loss of around a kilo, maybe a bit more?
DRUM ROLL.... and I lost 2.1 kgs this week.
Happy with that! Now to do it again next week.... but maybe not 2 kgs again. I'm going to aim for 1 kg.
I've now lost 8 kilos since I started WW again. Slow. But still on a downward slope.
And on that happy note, I'm off to enjoy a quiet evening.
