With yesterday being such a scorcher I decided I needed to do something close to the air conditioning so I pulled out my sewing machine and did a little mending, boring but necessary, and then decided to stitch up my little owl Hooty that has been laying in my unfinished projects basket. OK I admit that even now he is not quite finished as I have to stitch around his eyes and finish stitching the top of his wings to his body but it feels so good to be so close to something completed. the pattern was bought from here , they have the most gorgeous lot of things to make, it could get very addictive. I also bought the most adorable apron pattern too that I must get some fabric for next time I'm near a store.
I'm off now to go and watch Miss Potter, the story of Beatrix Potter for those of you who may not have heard of it. It's been out for ages but living with 5 males anything remotely girly seldom ever passes the door. I guess most Mum's out there who only have boys can relate. any way Bren has taken the two youngest boys down to Port with him as he had to work down there and has dropped them off with my Mum for the night and the other two are working until nine so I have the house all to myself until then, woo hoo. I grabbed my favourite prawns and avocado in a light chili sauce from one of the local restaurants and am about to kick back in 'the' chair, the one that there is usually arguments over who sits there because it is exactly the right position, face on to the new big tv, and no one is going to want to kick me off or share it with me.
Good night blog land.
