Heres to another lovely day!
For all you who work during the week, I hope today goes fast for you.

Fingers crossed we have a final resolution to Stew's job today... we SHOULD find out what job they have to offer him today.

I'm going out to get some more felting wool.  I'm determined to make me own 'N' & 'Z' for Russell's quilt today.
I didn't realise just how big the centre piece was, the part with the fern on.  It isn't going to take very many rounds of square blocks to make it big enough for a double bed at all.  
Yaaa.   Maybe I WILL  get it finished before he gets home!

I don't have much more to blither on about right now... so I'll just give you a couple of photos from the past day or so:

 ABOVE:  Dante.  He wasn't well yesterday, kept getting high-ish temperatures.  I hope he's feeling better today. (photo taken a few days ago)

ABOVE:  The little ratbag with his own pliers, I don't know what he thought he was doing to the dogs!  They were not impressed though.  (No dog was harmed in the taking of these photos!  Plastic Pliers)

Right, I'm outta here.  Got stuff to do.


Last night I dreamed I had a pet sheep in the back yard, and I cut it's wool to make my own wool for felting.
It was a crazy idea. 

Dante was up and down heaps overnight, but seems a box of birds this morning.  Poor Bex is pretty tired though.  I expect she will have a midday nap when Dante does today.

It's another really nasty winter day today.  Wind and rain, and fairly cold. 

JEANIE:  HA HA!  That is so funny. I AM CONSIDERING IT.  

I didn't get any felting wool when out, it was just too expensive.  So, I came home with nothing!
That's a rare event. 

Once home I decided to look on Trademe for wool... but didn't find much there either.
Bex said her Mum could possibly get me some wool... off a sheep's back literally.  So, I'll wait and see if that pans out!

Bex and Dante are back from the doctors.  Dante has a throat/ear infection, so is now on antibiotics and pain medication.  Fingers crossed the meds do their work fast so Bex and Steve can get some sleep tonight.

There ARE bonus's to sleeping in the garage!  We don't hear a thing.  *smiles*

End of Day:  I managed to get a bit of sewing done this evening, but not much.  Only got the N & Z made and stitched on the quilt centre.  Will show you tomorrow.
