Until next post...
Today I spent a bit of time in the kitchen and made up a batch of "Curry Ketchup" from tomatoes out of my garden
Yesterday, my boyfriend pulled out my Zucchini plants, so we made up the last batch of Zucchini Pickles from the last picking
Then we pickled some of my beetroot
and lastly, I made stewed rhubarb and I add passionfruit NOT apple.. again all from my garden.
Then I walked past the next project I am to make... a commissioned quilt... I usually say no when asked to make a quilt, but I was caught at a weak moment and said yes I would make a "Cowgirl's" doubled bed quilt for someone, so I bought heaps of "horsey" fabric while in the States and then found these adorable embroidered blocks on eBay... now I must get onto making something out of it all...
...but first... I must do the ironing!
Remember these spoons I have made in the past?
Well I have tried my hand with a different lot of old silver cutlery:
FORKS WITH ATTITUDE!
The first fork represents : RIGHT ON!
the last fork represents: PEACE
and the middle fork?.......
well let's just say that fork has ATTITUDE!
While I was in the States, I wanted to go and watch a live football game.
The Indianapolis Colts (19) played North Carolina (27).
When I got there, I saw this guy, so I went up to him and said "Hi, I'm an Aussie and I was wondering if I could have my photo taken with you?".... he smiled, hugged me and said to his mate "I'm being hugged by an Aussie"
The stadium holds 75,000 people and I'd say it was 3/4 full. The Super Bowl is being played in this stadium this year.
After having 8 weeks off work, it was so hard to go back to the daily grind, but last Tuesday I had to face the real world and go back to work!
This weekend I made 3 batches of Zucchini Pickles, this follows 3 batches last weekend, as well as a Zucchini & Cinnamon Cake & a Zucchini Lasagna. My garden had produced lots and lots of zucchinis while I was away, so my boyfriend was handing them out to family & friends, but he kept the recent crops for me to do something with.
As I can't just sit and watch TV without doing something, I am always knitting up these dish cloths. I bought a "Christmas" ball of cotton in the States while I was there and kinitted up the whole huge ball into many cloths (I think it made about 8). I realised after my Quilt/Craft Sale last December, I need to make up a lot more of these cloths as the 35 I had there for $4 each had all sold by 10am with an order for 5 more straight away!
While in the States, one of the MANY things I bought was this cute Teddy Bear... you press his foot and he moves his hands away from his eyes and says "Peek-a-Boo" followed with a childish laugh... he does it 5-6 times in a row....oh so sweet.
My grand daughter had her first visit from the Tooth Fairy last night... she is over 7 years old and she was starting to get upset as all her friends had lost teeth and she hadn't... but thankfully, she has inherited teeth from me and my family and her teeth are healthy and strong!
My, my...the Tooth Fairy certainly has had some increases in prices of teeth... my grand daughter received $5 for her first tooth and will receive $2 for all the following teeth that fall out naturally... I only got 20cents for mine!... inflation I suppose.... how much does the Tooth Fairy pay where you live?
Until next post...
