Well... because I went to bed so early last night, I'm pretty sure there is no chance I will get this cot quilt finished in time for tomorrow's market.

This is just a rough lay out for now:

ABOVE:  There is so much stitching to do!  Every single alien and spaceship has to be stitched and have it's details added.

ABOVE: The arrows point to the one's I've copied.

I know it's not a 'traditional' baby quilt, but I'm sure it will appeal to someone!  Might take a while to sell... but oh well... it will look lovely on the stall! *smiles*

We are doing the grocery shopping this morning.  Kill me now.
But it has to be done sadly.

After that, I will be sewing of course!  And catching a swim too hopefully.


4.25 pm:  lol.. another day where I've been too busy to get on the computer and do an update!

So... first up.  We went into Hamilton and I got a few things from Spotlight (cotton thread and elastic), then we went to The Base for some more bulldog clips for market.

On to Pak 'n' Save for the groceries.

Home.  Unpacked all the groceries, picked up Griffin and then we went out to the lake for lunch at the Podium Cafe.

ONLY.... because there was an 'Event' out at the lake we couldn't park and eat at the Cafe without paying the 'Event Entrance Fee' of $15 a head!

AND LIKE HELL were we paying $60 just to park in the carpark for our lunch!!!!

So we turned around and came back into Cambridge and had a lovely lunch at The Coffee Club instead.

Took a little walk along the top edge of the little lake in town while waiting for our food:

 ABOVE:  As I  have mentioned before, as out little lake has very little water flowing through it, it's a bit stagnant.  Kinda ikky.

ABOVE:  Happy snaps.  Stew was back at the cafe waiting on our food.   

FELICITY:  I forgot to show you what Potato Gems were!

ABOVE:  Ya bake them in the oven and they come out crispy and YUM.

Well I spent the rest of the afternoon sorting out things for tomorrow's market.
Stew cooked sausages and veges for dinner.
I pinned up parts of that new cot quilt.
And now I'm ready to stop for the day.

    Hope this works lost last few messages awesome pics of you ones today

  5. That's a crazy fee to park! I'd have turned around too lol

  6. Interesting to see that your potato gems are made from Tassie spuds. That means that they are made in my home town. I know New Zealand has a lot of agriculture, so this surprised me. Mary in Tassie
