.......And todays lesson was - Don't use cheap cotton to sew a patchwork quilt top because it shrinks in the dryer! Oh well, I still think it's cute.
Next task for the day - make a multitude of bibs. I could only manage 8. I have a very short attention span and I get bored easily so making the same thing 8 times in a row was as much as I could handle.
.....then the delivery truck arrived with the materials for this weekends task.
This is the front of my house. When we renovated the kitchen, we installed french doors that lead out into the front garden. At the moment, if you try to use the doors, you fall down the step (which was originally a window opening) and end up lying on a patch of dirt under a tree.
So this weekends task is to pour a concrete patio outside the doors. If you can see the stick in the foreground, that indicates where the patio is going to end. There will also be a footpath along the front that will lead to a gate because we are eventually going to fence in the front yard and make it a useable space.
So even though we need the rain, please no rain between 8AM and about 3PM tomorrow......
....and one last completely unrelated item.....this is my herb garden today....
Just ignore the dead looking stick thing in the pot at the right (I don't know what happened there, but I suspect it was a victim of my two weeks holiday at the beach over Christmas).
