Well, I haven't done much sewing as it is just too cold in my house at night to sew. I've lived in my house for nearly 20 years and I caved and bought a heater this year; one of those heavy oil heaters .. lugged it up the stairs, put it together and... it didn't work. Took it back to the shop the next day, repeated the lugging and putting together for the heater to work perfectly warming up my kitchen and some sewing was done (see previous post) however, that only lasted 3 days; or rather the heater did. So that went back and now I am wondering should I buy another?? I am cold; so I say yes, but that would be 4 trips to the shops so far for no warmth.
I had to go to Adelaide to help a friend in need .. cold and wet there .. took fabric to cut out a jacket and she borrowed a machine for me - but a lot of talking, reading and relaxing got done but alas no sewing. That's ok I didn't have my son with me (he was at Dad's) so it was the first uninterrupted time I'd had with my girlfriend for quite a while.
So just to have some colour in my post I am putting a photo from our trip to Cyprus in 2009 at about the same time of year. Beautiful isn't it ... Look at those colours with my piddly little camera.
This one is of my and my son's foot on the marble rocks on the Acropolis. I liked my pearly pink nail polish and the colours on the rock and my son's little foot.
This is a photo of my son and nephew at the Brisbane Tram Museum. I go when I want to remember riding the trams in my early youth. These are way before even my youth however; but they are really lovely and the boys love going. It is a really cute museum, the people are friendly and run the different trams all day... it's only open on Sundays when it doesn't rain for those interested.
I graduated last Tuesday and now start university on 25 July! so I hope to have time to sew a few more things and paint the lounge room (and maybe my bedroom??) Here's wishing me luck.
