Sundays are such busy days at our place. They seem all about getting ready for the week. I do lots of cooking so we can have a homemade soup for lunch and so Matt can have the leftovers for work, and all the baking for the kids lunchboxes. Housework and laundry, organising readers and library books and school and sports uniforms. Hardly ever time for sewing.
The kids went outside with Matt today and you wouldn't believe it was the first day of winter. It was sunny and nice, and the winter vegetables have been planted in the garden - a start anyway! The kids even managed to catch some tiny baby lizards in the garden out in the sun. I took one look at Ayden's school shoes and it was off to the shops we went. Teenage boys! They were totally wrecked. The problem is that he has less than 4 weeks left at school before he goes to King Island, off Tasmania for 10 weeks for school. All the year 9's go for a term. I'll write more about this when the reality really sets in....
I did make the flower for my bag on Saturday night, and I have been stealing moments to work on my lime and soda quilt, and look, the quilt top is done! Ahh, chain piecing ..... I thought to myself yesterday that there was no point sweeping the floor until I had finished sewing, and only 8 seams later the top was finished.
Matt went off to the enviornment awards presentatation, but he was not the overall winner for his category. A big national company won it for their improved water useage at the Ballarat manufactoring plant. Since his is a small business, an indigenous plant nursery and contracting business, not bad at all to be a finalist!
Well, back to the Sunday organising... have a great week!
