No Schedules - Part 2

It's a good thing I'm learning to go with the flow because at times it feels like I'm in the middle of the rapids. At the beginning of the week I was expecting 7 for dinner tonight so I ordered an appropriate amount of seafood. Over the past 24 hours that number dwindled back to just the 2 of us ... we may have over indulged just a little but I managed to freeze some for another meal or two. While I was in town yesterday doing the weekly grocery shop, the truck that delivers bread to the store had broken down and of course the shelves were empty and no estimated time of delivery so I can only hope my stock of frozen bread lasts.

Luckily I had a couple of days to myself this week and managed to get 3 projects finished. No dust bunnies here but perhaps another sort of bunny?

Dust Cloth #2

Easter Basket
(Mug bag later on)

I also had to whip up this pincushion I found on FB ... free pattern here

This morning hubby asked if I could give him a hand with the cows and when would I be ready. I'm glad I said not until the breakfast dishes were done as we didn't get back home till after 1pm. After lunch, dishes, floors and washing etc, it was time to get dinner started.  In the middle of all that, I turned the computer on to be told my user whatsit failed and NOTHING! Oh No! Panic! Hang on ... safe start up ... do a system restore ... PHEW!!!

So now I'm switching off, making a cuppa and settling down to enjoy some stitching with Wendy and all the lovely FNSI-ers.  Jeans to hem first and then I might just get the needle turn applique finished on my first block of A Merry Christmas Garden.

Happy Easter     >^..^<
