Look what arrived in my post box yesterday! Yes it's my new potting table cloth all the way from Claire's dining room table in England. How kind of her to send it all that way just so I could have a glam looking potting table. She also included some sweets for my sweeties! Yet another kind person doing her bit to recycle and make the world a friendlier place. Thank you so much Claire! (Sorry about the photo but the sun was so very, very bright that it was difficult to get a decent photo - makes a nice change though.)
Our big girls decided they were ready to go camping in the weekend. We had a three day weekend which is always nice. What do you think of their campsite?!! I did enjoy cropping all the mess out of the photo! If only cleaning up was always that easy. And for the first time they actually stayed in the tent all night. Well done girls.
My chefs in residence took over the kitchen on Saturday. They sure looked organised. They were making two different things at the same time. It's quite tricky to know what's going on sometimes. Of course Mama got the job of mopping the floor afterwards!
No. 2 made these very successful ginger cookies from Floss' recipe. They turned out fabulously and there are still some left which is nice.
No. 1 decided to cater for her sweet tooth really and truly with marshmallow - blue of all colours! Looks yummy doesn't it?
It's very melt in the mouth stuff and I have to say, I've had a few pieces myself. I guess it's worth a bit of mess.
I have so many projects on the go at present. Most are secret ones that I've nearly finished and am ready to bag and send out. I can't wait to clear the buffet of them. They do look pretty though. Wish I could post photos of them, but that would be telling!
I had to pop back to Spotlight to pick up a few more fabrics and notions this morning. All necessary of course! The two little girls both picked a fabric for a Christmas dress for themselves. Well OK, I picked No. 4's one, the pink paisley and then No. 3 decided to get a matching one but more of a patchwork look. I really don't do matching very well, but I guess they are sort of different.
And some Christmas fabrics for Christmas sewing -more presents! I've cut some things out already so see, it was needed.
No. 2 and I are off out this evening to watch the school production of Aslan the Lion King of Narnia. No. 1 is a singer in the show. It should be fun, these things always are.
Hope you are having a good week. I seem to have missed a good part of it due to the long weekend and busyness. I have some exciting gardening photos to show you next time. Oh golly, aren't you so excited by that?!! Right off for a cup of tea, please join me if you like.
