There are days when nothing seems to go to plan and you just can't catch a break. A cold windy and damp Friday managed to produce 4mm of rain. Of course it was my wash day and the line on the verandah quickly filled ... I don't use a dryer. Hubby was trying to do cattle work so I had to keep ducking out to help him while wearing the biggest, warmest coat I could find to keep the chill out. Waiting not so patiently for the mailman to see if expected paperwork will arrive ... the first lot is still somewhere in postal limbo.
Thought I'd grab a moment to sew a couple of button holes and buttons on some hand towels for my 1 Xmas Item A Month - August and to link up with Anthea for Christmas Through The Year. Now where have I put that large container full of buttons? I've looked everywhere I can think of but I guess they'll turn up when I'm looking for something completely unrelated. Isn't that always the way? I did grab a few moments to do a little more blanket stitching on the tractor and decided I'd just pick up the crochet rug after dinner and do a bit more to it, but sleep won out in the end.
This morning while the sun peeped out behind the clouds, I put some of yesterdays still damp wash out into the sunshine and did the rest of the washing. Happy I've managed to get it all dry before the sunshine disappeared and another shower came across ... the wind helps! More ducking out to help hubby and then some more blanket stitching to finish the tractor, moon and star. I've also ironed on Mr Farmer ready for stitching.
Hanging out for Spring ... it's just around the corner. >^..^<
