 The weather forecast was for doom and gloom today.  Looking out the window confirms that.

We are not going to market today.  I'm a bit bummed after working hard to have plenty of stock, and more variety.  But hey, I'd rather have plenty of DRY stock, as opposed to WET stock!

So yesterday when we bought my new pillow, I almost bought some pillow cases to fit it.

I say almost because the only ones in Adairs were $50 a pair.  And there is no way I'm gunna pay that for two pillow cases.

I went home and made myself a lovey warm polar fleece one:

ABOVE:  I like it!  And it fits perfectly.  I will have to make another one in the next week, for when that one has to go in the wash.

Today?  Meh.  Another quiet day I suppose.  I might go into the sewing room and work on the next Flower Runner... unless Stew can think of something riveting we can do?

10.37 am:  And it's a cold, nasty old day.  Wet as predicted.  Bex didn't go to market either.  
Stew couldn't think of anything  for us to do, so he's parked in front of the telly and I'm in the sewing room.
I will work on another Flower Runner.

3.51 pm:  Well I've done a fair bit of sewing on the 2nd Flower Runner today. 
I stopped a couple of hours ago as Steve, Bex and the boys arrived to visit.

I have another job lined up for Steve, so he came to do a measure up, suss out what is needed material wise.

Hopefully in the next month or so it will get done, in time for summer.

Yes, Summer is coming, times FLIES!

They have gone home now, so I suppose I should start thinking about what to do for dinner.  
MEH... get so tired of cooking.  Necessary evil though.  πŸ˜–πŸ˜’πŸ˜Ÿ

Ha!  I just asked Stew what he felt like for dinner and he said "KFC".  So looks like we are having KFC for dinner.  Awesome.  No cooking for me after all.

7.13 pm:  And that's a wrap on our day.  Cruisy and mostly about keeping warm.  Though we have certainly had colder days and nights.  
The KFC was very nice... but I think I've gone off the chicken itself.  It's so often dry.  Ikkk.
Right, catch ya tomorrow.


  1. Good morning can I please see a photo of FBG runners side by side now I can’t decide which one I love more x

  5. Been so hectic here have only just caught up with what you've been up to. You've been a busy bee with all the sewing, hopefully you will have an opportunity of another (drier!) market soon. We've managed to find a good house to buy and put an offer in (before we had viewed it but time was short so Katy had a look and declared it suitable for us! ) The vendor was getting married yesterday and keen to get moving so we did a good deal with her and didn't pay as much as we thought we would need to. It's a 15 minute drive from the farm so great location for Granny and Grandpa for babysitting 😁 Hopefully will complete sale and purchase on the same day so can move straight in. Needs a little redecoration to suit our tastes and some work in the garden but we had a flying visit after the offer went in and it's all good structurally. Very relieved we won't have to live out of the car after all ! Moving date should be middle of October if all legal stuff gets tied up by then. It's a smaller house so I am going to have to be ruthless and throw out a heap of stuff (mainly clothes....ya know, I'll fit into that when I lose weight, ha! Ain't never gonna happen now I'm heading for
    60 πŸ˜• ) Hope Steve is getting on with the new medication - that's a lot of health issues to be dealing with when you have a young family but he and Bex seem to cope as well as they can.
