I had $100 to spend in Christmas money so I decided to stock up on some Sulky thread that was on sale. Unfortunately only certain colours were on sale, they are normally $8.99 a reel, when did thread become so expensive? I use grey though to piece things together and I need the beige for a couple of projects I am going to be doing.
With the other $50+ I bought five metres of fabric. I got everything on sale for $10 a metre as it's normally up to $17 a metre. The store is closing down. This fabric is for a certain project but I can't tell you what at the moment, but they are fun prints aren't they?
Even after buying everything on sale I still went over the budget by spending $101.68 :o(
On Wednesday afternoon I ventured into the attic to mend a pair of dh's pants and then decided to get my quilt block sewn for the mnth of December , as the club meets on the 10th. I really like this block it's called Clay's Choice and I love the oranges. The key to this block is how you press your seams, follow the instructions carefully. I have never sewn with orange before have you?
Spent part of Wednesday afternoon preparing a couple of meals. I bought another bag of reduced mix veggie, same as these mentioned here made broccoli and cauliflower with cheese sauce, that we'll have with Pillsbury Country Biscuits and the carrots we're having with homemade pasties, mashed potatoes and gravy. The liquid in the jug is the water from the dish I steamed the veggies in. I like to water my plants with it when its cold. Heard it was good for them?
Oh, and my laptop has died.............I hope this isn't what's going to happen all through 2013, things dying?
