Gentle Readers and Dear Friends today is a damp and getting damper kind of day. The weather has finally shifted back to our more normal rainy winter weather and we are to be rained upon for the next few days.
The weekend was very pleasant. We had the house open for most of the two days as it was quite warm, but the minute that the sun went down it got very cool very fast. I did get all my finishing done and have packages going out this morning. I will wait to post snaps when the things arrive at their final destinations.
The stitching I got to was a bit more on Shores. Here is a progress shot of Block 5....
It is a bit on the wonky side - but you get the idea. That blue house was a lot of stitching, and back stitching. I need to get the roof and bits of back ground in and then its on to the big double square.
The baby pidges are up and squeaking...here's an action shot...
They are either flapping around are huddled up in a corner. I tried to sneak up on them to get a good snap to show how big they have gotten, but they are very alert to any noise. I'll try for better shots during the week.
We got our car back on Friday evening - WOO-HOO!!! Robert is a great mechanic and can really work miracles. He did us a huge favour by getting it done so quickly and I really appreciate him. But, to get the car back I had to sell an arm, leg and my left ear to get enough money to pay for the darn thing. We have been talking about looking to get a new car, but after pouring a butt load of cash into this car we are gonna drive it around a bit longer!! and I do love not having a car payment!!!!
I baked up a pretty basic coffee cake yesterday.....
I am sure I have posted this recipe back in the Blog somewhere, but I will try an get it onto Blacksheep Bakes this week.
That's about it for today sports fans!! Thanks for stopping by and for you kind comments. I do really appreciate them immensely!!!!!
