So... I didn't get much sewing done yesterday as I had visitors virtually all day.  Today I hope to get at least another 12 placemats done in readiness for Monday's market.

The girls in Australia were very quiet yesterday, virtually silent in fact!
I did get a couple of photos:

ABOVE:  A couple of nice city shots and one of a Huntsman spider.  Looks a bit creepy that spider.

Jacqui and Joel head out in an hour or so, Joel has two races today.  He's doing so well with his rowing!  His parents are super proud of him.

Not much else on today really... Stew is going to mow the lawns cos they are getting long again.  Griffin is out all day and Brylee is working.

So that's it for now.  Catch ya later.


1.27 pm:  and doesn't it feel good when you are doing what you know you should be doing?
Cos... I am.

 ABOVE: I am on the home straight with 15 more placemats almost finished!  Been working since 9 am.

ABOVE: Got me faithful little sewing buddy, Coco, guarding the door.
Well... actually... she's there cos everyone is mowing their lawns and she's freaked out too.  But she does love being near me when I'm sewing as well.

ABOVE: Have I told you just how much I LOVE having Netflix?  Cos it's amazing.... I am now 'Netflixing' Suits.  And I love it!  

Stew is outside mowing the lawns... did I say that already?  Hold on... scrolling back...


........................Yeah, I said he was going to ... well now he is.

 ABOVE:  Everything is growing like MAD.  

ABOVE:  These are really pretty... so are the trillions of clover... but not fun when the lawn is completely covered with BEES.  Stood on one the other day... friggin hurt like f*#k.

And that's enough waffling for now... I wanna get those placemats DONE and DUSTED.  laters....

6.44 pm: ....

DONE. DONE.  DONE.  18 placemats. 12 coasters.
And that's a wrap for the day.  My legs and feet are swollen now, and I need to stop and put them UP.

Oh, and have dinner. Which is fish 'n' chips, cos I can't be arsed cooking.  I been working hard all day and I'm DONE.

ABOVE: I got carried away after I finished the dog placemats, and made these ones too, and the little coasters.  I just love that farmyard fabric! Such fun.

I've got a few more to sew up tomorrow, but sadly I don't have much of that fabric at all.  Enough for 3 more placemats I think.

And I'm gunna wrap up the day early ... I'm tired and just want to relax for a few hours now.

Best thing about sewing all day today? It was a cloudy day and that meant I didn't miss out on swimming and sunbathing in the sun.

Maybe that will happen sometime tomorrow?
