I stumbled onto something on You Tube the other night... and I've now got a burning desire to try this:


ABOVE: It's Liquid Paint Pouring!  Messy.  Sort of similar to the Alcohol Ink Painting I did a year or so ago, but using paints instead of ink.
OMG I love it!
And like I NEED to add another 'hobby' to my already full days?

But, I am going to give it a try ... and SOON.

But certainly not today.  Today I have my cleaning job to do at 'P's.  Then I will be coming home to sew.

I got a commission for a large Wonky House Runner last night.  The lady saw my Runners at the Market on Sunday, and text me last night with the dimensions/colours etc that she wants.  She's already paid a deposit too!
Cool eh. 

It's so LOVELY when people really appreciate and love my work!   I am still waiting to hear from the Real Estate Agent who commissioned a House Runner two months ago too!  I might just give her a phone call soon... see what the hold up is.

But for now... I better get up and get the day started.  


12.45 pm:  And there I am, dusting, polishing, vacuuming, cleaning... killing a million spiders and YOU?
Nothing.  Not a word from anyone!
Are ya all so busy ya can't be bothered stopping and saying SOMETHING? Pffffft.

This blog has been looked at/read 300+ times already TODAY... !  Not good enough.  Maybe I will go on strike?  

Yeah.  Might take a break for HOURS.

Have some lunch.  Watch some TV.  Do some sewing.  

You all have a nice day. *sniff*

*** ***  I'm thinking of going into Hamilton for some paint and shit ! *** *** 

I didn't go into Hamilton after all.  Decided I've got too much on my plate right now... but I will be trying it sooner rather than later.

ABOVE:  Me Mum decided to send me a photo of a runner I made, on her dining room table... cos she loves it.  Thanks Mum.
And I'm not BLITHERING!  I was having a bitch! lol

3.35 pm:   And I forgot something quite 'important' to tell you about today!!!

Brylee met a young man at her work, and they have been dating for a few weeks now.  And today, he came home with her for dinner.

Yep... we finally get to meet Jordan.

And so far, I'm quite impressed!

 ABOVE:  Meet Jordan.  He's rather cute.  
And he baked cookies!!!!   YEP, he baked.

 ABOVE:  Double chocolate no less!  Bloody YUM!
Not bad Jordan, you can stay for dinner.

ABOVE:  I watched him arrive in his car... it's a bloody PURPLE SHAGGIN' WAGON!!!   When I said that to him, he had NO IDEA what I was talking about.
This indicates he's a good boy.  *smiles*

Brylee... keep going out with him, but don't get in the back of that wagon!

DOGSTARS:  Yes, he gave me his permission. *smiles*

9.35 pm:  Home from Card Night with the girls, another very enjoyable evening had by all.
I didn't win, or lose tonight.  But it's not about winning or losing really, it's about having fun.

Time to sign off for the day... catch ya tomorrow.

OH and THANK  YOU for all the lovely comments!  {{{HUGS}}}

  11. I forgot the most important thing..... He is permitting himself to be on your BLOG! What a guy!

  12. Jordan seems lovely - he baked cookies!!!!!

    I suspect the term "shaggin wagon" may be less about him understanding the meaning & more about showing our age lol

    In Australia that’s a station wagon, A shag gin wagon was. Panel van ( back in the 70’s /80’s

    1. Yes it's a station wagon here too... but anything that you can put a mattress in the back is also a 'shaggin wagon'. lol

  14. OK: those cookies are adorable!!!! PS: go to the shops and buy the paint and start the new artwork.... I'd love to see it. Christy xxxxx

  15. Look on my friends list on FB fir Claudia Riley, she does some pretty amazing acrylic paintings, she might be able to give you a few pointers. Just mention my name if you do

  16. I have never been able to comment on your blog unless I am on my desktop - iPhone says the comment has been uploaded but it never works. :(

  17. Can't wait to see a picture of the two of them together. I reckon they will make a pretty good looking couple. And he bakes. A keeper.
    And we've probably all frightened him off now!!

  18. Chris I was going to ask you how Sue W was and I see she has posted on here.

    I so enjoyed reading her blog until recently along with another Sue you all knew each other I am unable to find it? now but can find Sue PC on instagram and see her posts ? Sorry to crash your blog but through them I found your blog a couple of years back
