I've been a busy girl this weekend. I couldn't stop sewing at all. Meals are such an inconvenience sometimes aren't they?
Lots of photos for you today so I won't ramble on too much. I'm sure you can work out what I've been making for yourself.
I do like this little house (found here) which is still awaiting some covered buttons. But goodness, talk about getting cross with it. It really drove me quite crazy at times. The girls left the room in the end!
Now remember these gorgeous tea towels I received last week From Pomona?
Well look at them now...
Not complete without a spot of red gingham of course! Nothing is safe around here.
And finally I have my own recycled jeans bag too. I love the spotty lining. The jeans were bought from the Op Shop a few weeks ago for $3, they were half price too. And they were brand new!
I'm going to look very smart next Market Day. I can't wait.
I popped into the Op Shop again on Saturday and found a basket full of patterns. I found just what I had been wanting for only $1 each! So much cheaper than the fabric shop would have had it for and one of them was completely unused. I left that shop with a smile on my face, I can tell you.
I always buy a salad at the market on Saturdays. Isn't it pretty with the flowers for colour? The freshest capsicums as well for the big girls.
And I simply could not go past this brilliant buy at the supermarket. Two bags of bananas for only $1.49 each!! I made two banana cakes whilst cooking dinner last night, the little girls ate mashed bananas for breakfast, there will be banana milkshakes on the menu for pudding tonight as well I'm thinking. We are truly going bananas!
A very summery tasty treat for No. 1!! The other three can't eat strawberries unfortunately.
And who has been a busy boy? My goodness I hardly recognise the back yard! No more stray toys, no leaves, no shells, no bikes. Not messy at all for a change. Nothing worth cropping in this photo.
And the bakery too. Anyone for freshly baked bread?
And if you think all this work was done without giving up something else, you are so very wrong. See this breakfast bowl? I discovered it on the coffee table at 6pm! I just didn't notice it before then as I was so busy sewing (and the place was too messy!). I didn't even cook tea (pasta with a bit of sauce on top!) until 6.30! Just shocking I know. The whole house was an absolute tip, but who cares, we all had fun doing our own thing.
