Well what a day today was… For those who don’t know a huge dust storm encapsulated Sydney this morning. This is the view from our window into our complex’s gardens, at around 7am, and I have to say it didn’t much improve throughout the morning.
In the afternoon the kids and I drove to Spotlight. (For those who might not know Spotlight is a large craft chain store staff by dim witted teenagers that know nothing about craft). Cadel and Hamish have developed a hatred for the place which involves them whining upon entering the car park and Cadel attempting to bargain with me “No Mummy, maybe we go to Spotlight tomorrow.”.
I needed some stuffing and some embroidery thread though, so off I went trekking out to the Auburn branch so the kids could have an extra long nap. Anyhow, in true Spotlight fashion, every bag of stuffing was either opened or squashed, and as one would expect they were out of the embroidery thread colour I was wanting.. (a very unusual colour)… black. So we left empty handed. A rather uneventful and unforgettable day.
I have lots of things cut out and am doing lots of handwork on my softies, but I’m trying to stay off the machine until my new one arrives. Hopefully I’ll have some work to show off next week.
In other news I am picking up my new machine at the end of the week so stay tuned…
