It has only been a week but it seems like a life time since I was able to get to this blog. Bill has come through the operation fairly well, there were a couple of hick-ups but fingers crossed we... Continue reading

I think I am a little put off by the fact that my husband went ahead a bought the house knowing I wasn’t that keen on it. I can build an extension onto the back of the house and depending on how his health progresses this is what I plan to do. I also think that I am worried about the outcome of his up coming operations. I see him going down a bit each day and although he assures me everything will be fine there is still that little bit of doubt. In the mean time I have to fit into a small space.

There is always a difference between what one can put on paper and what goes onto the fabric. Sometimes it just doesn’t work.

I have now finished mowing the bush block. That was a challenge. The block hadn't been touched for a number of months and was very overgrown, all three quarters of an acre. It took four full tanks of petrol and... Continue reading

How do you see those faces? And I have to admit that I ran out of blue fabric and had to use beige.
