Today I am all over the shop. There are attempts at some creativity in the kitchen, some massacring in the garden and some dreaming of future creativity
I have been in the kitchen baking anzac biscuits for MR which unfortunately turned out more like an anzac slab. He likes them soft so I put in a bit of extra butter and golden syrup - turns out a bit too much. But the slab was nice and soft and chewy and I just cut it into squares, thank goodness for unfussy boys. I sent them back to site with him in a takeaway container with a little letter written on the cardboard inside of the foil lid for him to find when he opens them up.
I have been outside in the garden, removing a very annoying purple daisy type flowered plant that is trying to take over the garden, both back and front. I pruned it back a while ago and then it rained and all these little baby ones sprouted up from around where I had pruned. So this time I took out the whole plant in the front, the one in the back gets to stay for a bit longer, mainly because the rubbish bin is now full. I am thinking of planting some everlasting in their place but I have a feeling it is a bit late.
I have also been dreaming about fabric combinations, in preparation for this course that I just signed up for in an effort to motivate me to use my sewing machine more often than never. We will be making a table runner, placemats and napkin rings. I'm looking forward to getting the 'book list' of what we need fabric wise so I can go shopping, both in my stash and in the shops for some pretty fabrics. I'm thinking of a white, blue and grey/silver theme...
I've also been thinking of what I want to achieve with the last ten days of my holidays. I think a list is in order!
