the sun sets on another lovely day

As the sun has set on another lovely day, I have been busy touching up the house for a open house tomorrow. Here is a picture of one of the table runners that I made to spruce up the house.. might I say that I did make about 6 of them and have them all around the house all slightly different.. they were made out of curtain fabric that were picked up in the bargain bins and back with a ugly that was in the stash. I believe that all up the cost me about $25.00 for the lot!
The lovely roses are out of my garden.

This is the picture that I took of sun rise from the balcony.

Wednesday.. oh to have a day at home..

I spent the whole day at home... I have been working on my Narromine Swap Partners lovely gift... sorry cant show you any of that just yet.
As my lovely home here is on the market thought that I might smarten up the front of my home... here is a picture of the mini "quilt" ( more like a cover for the old chair) and the cushion covers that I made to sit at the front door on the old cane chair.

busy day...

today I had a busy day cooking and sewing.
my DD and the neighbours DD decide to cook some goodies for after school and for lunch box treats
here are the girls rolling the ANZAC biscuits
and then the vacuum cleaner Oh no that the dog cleaning up the bits that didn't quiet make it to the tray or was that the mouth!!

the girls then argued over who was having the bowl and who got the beaters or spoons... they want to clean out.... and it was not with soapy water! .....

they have plenty to eat for the week when the house fills up with all the children after school....
