I have been preparing for my sewing class session this afternoon. I am going to teach them how to make yoyos. I've made a clip to show them what they can be used for. I have a couple of other examples too, yesterday's stocking included.
I have made a double batch of lemon cordial and managed to spill some of it down the cupboards and all over the floor. Nice and sticky I can assure you! Dont' you just love it when that happens?
I have stitched a new pincushion from a book I was looking through at the bookshop yesterday. Bit naughty really, but it was pretty easy to remember what to do. I think it looks like a strawberry so maybe I'll make another one in suitable colours and add a few leaves. I think I may need a larger pair of scissors too! But a cute gift.
I think I overdid the ribbons on the back!!! Looks pretty messy and actually quite awful. Never mind, we learn from making mistakes don't we? The one in the book looked lovely.
I have been emailing my sister in law about the earthquake in Christchurch. They had another big jolt this morning as I was making the lunches. Apparently it was a very similar feeling to the first big one, even though it was much smaller. A different area moved so I guess it was new ground being torn apart. The original fault line that moved wasn't even known about. The ground has a scar 22km long across the countryside. A state of emergency has been put in place for another seven days after today's shake.
I've received some emails from overseas people concerned for their friends and family down there. Here is a great news website that will keep you informed about what is happening. It's updated regularly.
Right, off to make lunch for my little coughing bunny and myself. Roll on summer I say!
