Tuesday 31 July 2012As mentioned in my post we had Emily here for the weekend. One of the first things she mentioned when she got here was a desire to go to Spotlight. OK with me as they were having a 30% off all fabrics and I also had a $5 voucher to spend. Needless to say I walked out with some fabric and a couple of balls of wool. Emily bought an abundance of things one of which was a craft wood tissue box cover which she wanted to cover with pretty paper.
Somehow this always means that I end up doing it because she runs out of time. This was the case again this time.
I am going to spend a couple of days with her at her house and when I walked into the craft room this morning the tissue box cover was still at the same stage of covering as when she left on Sunday. So this morning I have been busy trying to get it finished to take out to her.
We had some lovely weather on the weekend. The mornings are cold but the days are lovely, up to 21C during the afternoon. I managed to pick some peas on Sunday, not many, but enough for Ron and I. We had them with our roast lamb last night and they were delicious.
