** It’s actually Monday as I start writing this. I almost never write my posts in advance, but I can’t be bothered doing anything else tonight because my head is ouchy
** Caused by too much grumping at my children I suspect. They were really tired today and more naughty than usual. I think we might all be getting a cold Gah!
** In breaking news… today I (yes me!) baked!
** There were as yummy as they looked too!
** But it’s ok you can relax – I’m not slipping into becoming a domestic goddess in the kitchen or anything…
** After madly baking cupcakes before 8am (we had guests coming) I had had my fill of kitchen mastery and since I was then too lazy to make lunch I decided to eat 4 cupcakes instead. – They had fruit on so that was my part of my fruit intake for the day didn’t ya know!
** My contribution to dinner was chopping up baby tomatoes & cucumber and drizzling them with balsamic to accompany my Indian Takeaway butter chicken.
** So yeah – no masterchef awards in this house any time soon!! Cooking and I are not usually friends. I would rather sew quite frankly
(Although really there’s not a huge amount of that happening at the moment either)
** So on that point I decided to make a 3rd mug rug to replace one of my previous ones:
… in the Goodie Swap. Both my partners liked the same mugrug (although I’m not telling which) so I decided to give it to the one who shouted loudest and try again for the other.
** This is the progress so far for my 3rd mugrug…
** I really like it (pretty predictable since it’s my favourite colours!!) and the tute was really easy to follow – thanks Jill! Everyone in the swap thought I paper pieced it, but to be honest I really wouldn’t remember the first thing about how to paper piece since I’ve only done it once – a year ago!
** I think this will be the final glimpse of it that my partner gets though because I have some things planned which will totally give the game away, if she hasn’t guessed already…
** In other news I have recently learned never say never!
** A few weeks ago I recall saying to a friend of mine that you would never catch me dead buying a vintage sheet!
** I meant no harm by saying this because said friend (and lots of my other friends!) is very into vintage sheets and I admire that. They are just generally not a love of mine.
** But I take it back. Because on a crazy whim I walked past my local thrift shop (on the way to buy milk as you do) and spotted this lovely…
** It made me so nostalgic since I had a Holly Hobby duvet cover in the same colours and style when I was a girl, and I thought it would make such a lovely quilt back, that I just had to have it…
** So I stand corrected!! I am now officially part of the vintage sheet club.
** Kind of. I don’t expect it will become a habit though. But again – never say never I guess!
** I am having 3 friends over tomorrow to help me brand 50 t-shirts for an upcoming conference.
** I have to say that I’m going to be a little relieved when this job is over. The suspense of such a large job is looming over me and I think it might free up my brain a little once it’s over. I hope so anyway!
** I am on the other hand very excited about my first self-run swap! If you missed yesterday’s post and would like to be part of the Scrappy swap 2011, then come take a read and play along with us!
** Tuesday afternoon as I finish this and my head is still ouchy Be gone headache, be gone!!
And that is a glimpse into my Tuesday for the week.
Have I mentioned lately that I love Tuesday Tidbits? It makes such a nice change to bullet point instead of
writing attempting to write cohesive paragraphs!
Couldn’t do it everyday though.
Linking up today to Fabric Tuesday.
