I got a new to me magazine when I was out the other day, called Cross Stitch Crazy. It's of course a British magazine, I think the British have the best magazines in the world. I signed up for the newsletter and entered all the competitions, other than the ones for the sewing machines, as they won't work over here.
It had a lovely little free project in it, for a bookmark, so I have been busy doing that. (right of photo)
I love doing cross stitch as much as I love sewing.
By the time you read this on Monday morning, the workmen should have arrived (9am out time) to start on the drywalling/plasterboarding. I of course have signed up to be their chief supervisor, and a fine job I will no doubt do!! Not sure how lon they will be here, but I have cleared my week to be at home, other than on Friday when I have a meeting at 2pm at the church. I am putting forward a motion to be in charge of organizing a cookbook for a church fundraier. Should be fun and pretty simple to do. Just have to print out some figures, got my sample cookbook and I am all ready to go. Think it should be a relatively easy thing to persuade the members to sign up for.
I still have a list of things to do sewing wise this week, so want to work my way through that list; as when these guys have gone, I am going to be busy deocrating.
Did you remember to put your money in your Daily Savings Pot today?
Today's Money Saving Tip:
Eat less meat. For the nutritional value, meat is very expensive, especially as compared to vegetables and fruits. Simply change around your regular meal proportions to include more fruits and vegetables and less meats – eat a smaller steak and a bigger helping of green beans, for example. Not only is this a healthier way to eat (saving on health costs), it’s also less expensive.
