Our house tank was nearly out of water so the rain last night was greatly appreciated
Hubby and I sat on the veranda with a glass of wine and watched the rain fall
and run into the tank........
It was better than any show on T.V that's for sure.
All the roses and budlias are starting to flower,
this is my back garden, the bulbs are all dying off and look a bit untidy.
But the day lillies are all starting to flower, I have lots of different colours this season as
last summer I planted alot of new ones I got
from the markets.
Below are two patterns that I found in a shop at Charters Towers.
They were only $2 each.
I can't wait to give the top nightie a go. The bottom one is winter nighties, so that will be awhile
before I try it.
I have lots of left over lace and bits and pieces that will go
on to them. I love my PJs to look pretty.
This is the material that DIL Karen picked out for her "stack and whack" quilt.
I had a busy day in the sewing room yesterday making all the squares.
They look so good all these colours together.
I may give you a sneak peak, but not much as DIL reads this blog and I don't want to
ruin the surprise for her..
O! While I was away my washing machine blew up. ......
It has been making awful noises for about 12mths and I new it was on the
way out.So of course it had to happen while I'm away.
I didn't realize how bad the other one was until I used the new one. Funny how you get used to things. All my clothes are coming out so much cleaner.
O.K I spend alot of time in my laundry but come on doesn't
Miss Kleenmaid look pretty........
I have to get to know her though, as I have been missing the grey water.
I use the grey water on my garden so I really need to learn when it is going to pump out and collect my water.
As the baby is only 8 mths old I don't get alot done with him here.
I would like to say hello to all the new ladies that have stopped by.
And thank you all for the comments that you leave, I love
Jacqui when we picked the olives we used little rakes
just like the ones the kiddies use in the sand pit.
You put a tarp under the tree and rake through the branches and the olives fall
onto the tarp.
I then soaked my olives in salt water for about 3 weeks.
Changing the water every 2 days.
By the end of 3 weeks they weren't bitter any more and were soft.
I then bottled then with clean salted water.
This was the first time I have done olives and they turned out great.
I hope this has given you an idea any way, come olive season I will go through it again..........
Well Baby is waking up so I must go
