Knickers On The Line - Come Have A Nosy!

Imagine this. You have a metre of your most favourite fabric that is slowly being used for small, special, projects. Then you see it in the cheapie fabric shop for merely a few coins a metre!! Imagine how excited I was. OK, it's just red gingham you say, but I haven't be able to find real 100% cotton gingham anywhere, for... well, never. Trust me it's exciting! I only bought a metre of it too. Not wanting to over do it of course.

I have been given this challenge from dearest Lululiz. I don't normally have time for such things but I've made an exception for this one as it's got good purpose.

So I'll attempt to answer the questions and show you some shots from yesterday for a bit of colour and to be a bit mean too. Marvelous stuff, in my opinion.
OK first question is: 6 names I go by - Sarah, Sar, Mummy, Mum, Mama, Mamma Mia (It's my all time fav movie) I watched it twice last night even!
2 - Three things I am wearing right now: jeans, what else?!!, aqua tee shirt, black scuffed shoes (Father would not be impressed!)

3 - Three things I want very badly at the moment: To have all my Christmas presents made, to have parcels wrapped and ready to send, for it to be the Summer holidays so my whole family including my husband is home for five/six glorious weeks.
4 - Three things I did last night: Watched Mamma Mia two times, started a present for one of my girls for Christmas (not telling you girls which one either!) made Weet-bix for my husband's dinner as he didn't get home until after 9am (he had to go away on a plane for the day and he's a fussy eater so didn't find anything worthy of eating whilst out) He's going to kill me for telling you he's fussy!!
5 - Two things I ate yesterday: Well it's pretty obvious from some of the photos I guess. Mine is the lovely plate of bacon and egg pie with the accompanying salad dressed with homemade vinaigrette and unfortunately bought tomato relish. Gluten free pastry of course and quite divine it was too. Three servings left over, one just eaten for lunch. Still divine.

6 - Two people you last talked to on the phone: Just had a phone call from my doctor to tell me I don't have arthritis in my right elbow/finger/thumb but I should have it xrayed anyway and have some iron tablets, and before that, my husband to see how my dental hygienist apt went this morning. Gosh there are no secrets around here are they? Why was it not a friend, or the library with another overdue book?!!

7 - Two things to do tomorrow: Gosh this is such a nosy questionnaire? Bet I don't get any takers on this one! Anyway, it's a long weekend here so probably some gardening, and hopefully some more sewing with my lovely red gingham.

8 - Three favourite beverages: Give me a Fijian cocktail any day!! Thick (rice milk) milkshakes, and certainly not a favourite, but I drink it anyway, cups of tea. Need one now actually.

So if you fancy having all your personal stuff aired for all to see, grab the questionnaire and go for it! And good luck to you.

Oh and another thing, I'm dreaming of a red gingham Christmas now. How could I not! I'm humming it to the song "I'm dreaming of a white Christmas". Hum along if you like. Catchy isn't it?

Lululiz said...

You are such a darling for answering the same questions I had been set a couple of days ago. Ta very much.
The food looks very yummy indeed. But you can't tempt me, I have just eaten some brekkie, so there.
A ginghammy Christmas, eh? hmmm, do you decorate your tree with ginghammy things?

Sarah said...

Hmmm, no I'm thinking table cloths, actually that's about as good as it gets around here!

Fun to get to know you! And exciting fabric find for you!!! I love a good bargain, and to find exactly what you're looking for is wonderful!

Michela said...

At least, they call you very politely! ;-)
Good morning Sarah! It's 8.20 am, I'm still in bed, no work today and it's raining, yay :(
Usually on the 25th December we have a very large lunch with all the family (phew!), another large dinner on the 31st December with friends for celebrating the end of the year, another massive lunch on the 1st January for the New Year...we spend all the holidays sitting and eating!!! Oh, and we play bingo!
Have a great weekend!

Michela said...

P.S. ..and now I've got a Christmas tree bigger than yours!

Serenata said...

Yum, your food pictures look very appetizing... I've just had porridge and manuka honey for breakfast - nothing like Manuka to fight germy jims!

So glad you were able to find some of your favourite material. It gives you a buzz doesn't it? Happy days.
