 Mixed bag of stuff on the agenda today.

First up we are heading out to pick up some stuff that has to go into storage here.

While we are out, the girls are going to Steve 'n' Bex's for a play date.

After all that, I am going to do the usual housework, then head back into the sewing room to continue working on leaves.

ABOVE:  I was really thrilled with how many leaves I got sewn up yesterday.  I haven't counted them up, but well over 60.

Today I hope to get all the rest done.  Then the FUN part happens.  I get to actually make the plants.

11.40 am:  Well one job is nearly done.

We were lucky and Steve came with us, so two trips and the job is done.
Most of what we picked up is going straight to the dump or an Op Shop.
It was abandoned... so we shall dispose of it.

I'm feeling very headachy today.  Woke up and got a blood nose out of nowhere.  Think my blood pressure is elevated.  Not surprised really.
Stressed a bit.
But once I shake off the bullshit and just forget about it, I should be OK.

8.10 pm:  Sorry for being absent so long.  As it's usually very quiet on the weekends, I didn't think it mattered.
I have been sewing all afternoon, right up until 7.30 pm.  I got heaps done!
In fact, I ran out of green leaves, so tomorrow will be making more.
And I will show you my progress on UCKI PLANTS tomorrow as well.

For now, we have just had our dinner.  I made little lamb burgers using Brioche buns, OMG they are delish.

The very last episode of Doc Martin is on soon.  I hope it ends well.  The shorts have been troubling, showing him bleeding out from an injury!  Surely they can't kill him off???


  1. Once you have a bunch of plants - do a lovely photo shoot with a big group of plants ! These would be great for hospital gifts in rooms where people are not allowed to have "real" plants for whatever reason. You could even make whimsical fabric flowers ! A friend of mine and her daughters made paper flowerd once for a hospitalized patient. I can't remember why they couldn't have real flowers - but they could not.

  2. I'm so sorry. Hate to see the sad face!
