Due to the weather I was able to spend Saturday in the sewing room getting reaquainted with my sewing machine. I had a great time learning how to make a new object - photos later as well!
I can show you this -
Sweet Flowers SAL - Gravestone 32ct linen from Stitches and Spice, DMC threads.
I have chosen my own thread combination to go with my fabric.
I'll be working on this section this week.
Not quite washed away last week. The rain started on Monday lunchtime and stopped this morning. The biggest fall was on Tuesday - 250mm (10inches) measured on Wednesday morning. Altogether for the week we had over 425mm (17 inches) so the ground is still a bit soggy. To put things in perspective the average rainfall for January here is 160mm. No damage, only some minor flooding in local creeks. Not like the big floods last year.
I sent DD out in the rain to run of some energy on Saturday morning. Here she is standing under the gutter overflow.
I had her retested on Tuesday - still allergic to peanuts so I have to check again in another 2 years. The Dr gave us a practice epipen which will be good for Grandparents, cub scout leaders, etc. I am confident she could inject herself if required.
Both kids are back at school so getting back into the homework and activities routine. It's a struggle for me as well to have everyone out the door by 7.45am to do the school run, and also to have everyone in bed at a decent hour.
On that note I shall stop and try to get some stitching in before it's time for bed!
