Freaky Friday.

I woke up to this this morning. Frank apparently didn’t appreciate having a kitty butt on his face all night ROFLOL. Look at all that kitty fur! Winter has come to an abrupt end and we seem to have been plonked right into the middle of Summer. It’s time to shed ALL the fur!

I think I’m almost on track for the design of this quilt, I spent some time with it last night, auditioning fabric, trying out blocks. I have lots of ideas for the applique, for me that’s the easy, enjoyable bit. Getting the colours, fabrics and especially the layout right can be a total pain in the toosh though; it can be extremely frustrating LOL. Thank you for all your suggestions, I love you guys.


Sewing aside, it’s been a mundane, chore filled week for me this week. I’ve had to renegotiate our electricity plan, buy new sheets, and return flammable laptops to their manufacturers. I’ve also had nine phone calls, two letters, and one email from real estate agents, local and interstate, wanting to list our property (and trying to talk us into 1-2 year contracts with development companies). I’m completely over it right now.

Nasty neighbour is (allegedly) vacationing at Her Majesty’s pleasure for a few short months for an (cough, alleged, cough) armed robbery. It buys us time to paint that side of the house and do some much needed maintenance. I got to hang the sheets on the clothesline today – first time in more than a year – without heckling and jeering! I’m looking forward to the smell of sun-dried sheets tonight – *YAY* for small victories!

Have a gorgeous weekend lovelies, I’m looking forward to a sleep-in tomorrow. Bliss.

  • Yes I agree with Kris, 21 degrees in Christchurch and you know it will probably snow in a week or two. It’s the best to be able to dry the washing outside. I have even washed the windows. Can’t wait to see what other pups come along.

  • Adorable pups! Your right about those sun dried sheets! Nothing better. Oh and one armed robbers palace is another ones piece. Hope you can enjoy it to it’s fullest! LOL!!

  • Loving the new designs. Also love nothing better than the smell of line dried sheets straight back on e bed. The weather lately has been amazing….but I too, feel that it is lulling is into a false sense of scurity & will be hit with some more cold weather before the winter is finished.

  • We need to go into partnership. I love choosing fabrics, colours and layouts but am no good at drawing the applique designs. Frank looks a little pissed off and you can hardly blame him.

  • Nothing nicer than sun dried sheets & towels … We’ll be enjoying the towels tonight. 😉 I have suspicions that winter is just messing with our heads & that this warm spell will be followed by a last hurrah winter freeze … So I’m planning on basking while I can. 😜 KRIS xx
