The end of the year is going so quickly. Extra dance rehearsals, choir performances, end of year school functions, dance costume sewing, Christmas!!
Cameron only has 2 weeks and 2 days of school left - oh how old do I feel!!! It will be so good to have it all over and done with. We have his formal clothing all organised and just finalising his "sweet ride" as he puts it. Here, where we live, part of the very "important" parts of arriving to your school formal is the vehicle!!! Oh to be seventeen again!!
The costume sewing is going slowly, mostly because I couldn't find anything to wear to the formal so ended up with fabric and a pattern and my dear Mum came to the rescue.
Just one day at a time here I'm afraid.
The vege garden is slowly taking shape. We went and picked up one load of soil and have planted a few little things - corn, spinach, lettuce and a tomato. Better than nothing I guess. We have had some more rain, so the garden looks lovely and fresh again. I just rang to get 2 1/2 metres of soil delivered, it would take 3 or 4 trips back and forth with the trailer, so this way I just have to shovel!!! Joy !!!
I called into one of my favourite little shops hunting for treasure and found two lovely glass sandwich plates and a lovely little bowl and this dear little piece of embroidery all for $4.25. Bargain!!!
If you've been visiting here for awhile you might remember my lovely stitching day out in September. I started one of the projects that Rosalie Quinlan designed and had fun learning Needlepunch. I finished the needle punch part of it while we were away on our little holiday. I finally finished my cute little bag. I think it turned out quite well. I think I will try to make the little needlecase that goes with it.
I had better leave it there today and get on with some work in the office - hopefully it will be a little easier on my eyes now - gathered courage last week and had my eyes tested - you can guess the rest!!!! Old age I tell you!!!!
