Bumper Week

 This was a wonderful week. I had the best week ever, My daughter came down from Bathurst to spend some time with us this week. She made this wonderful laundry bag, I know it will be very well received.
 We did some cooking in the oven, this is just part of the dish, potatoes with cheese and leeks. I forgot to photograph the lovely fish parcels.
 this is the other side of the laundry bag my daughter made.
 This pile of fabrics is bundles of laundry bags cut out ready to sew.
 On the Friday we went out with one of my good friends Melody
where my daughter drove us in Melody's car, a wonderful thing to do and these sheets were amongst the bargains I bought. Perfect for the laundry bag linings. (the sheets are white, my shadow is making them look yellow).
 We went to a couple of patch work shops too and I bought this delightful cat pin cushion and Jodies birds. The cross stitch kit was from an op shop and is for the Crafternoon Stash.
I have been busy making the cords for the laundry bags too. Making up sets of 4 as I go along. I have the ball in a hat box threaded through a hole and it keeps the yarn from rolling all over the place as I use it.
It was my Husbands Birthday on Sunday and my niece had a barbeque party with all of the friends and family around to celebrate. A wonderful week.

  1. Wow! You have been busy.
    Love the idea of the cat pin cushion. Who is the designer and where can we get the pattern from?
