What to do on a wet Saturday.
Have a cup of tea. I found this dear wee cup and saucer at the Motueka Hospice Shop. It was among the brown and fawn items and had to be rescued.
Have a nap. Monty has taken possession of my my almost-finished square quilt. No chance of getting my hands on it now!
Miss Dog thinks having a nap is a very good idea too. Look at that shiny coat!
Stoke up the fire. Mr B got a big basket of wood in and we are lovely and warm. I should roast some chestnuts.
Admire other purchases from the Hospice Shop. They were pleased with themselves when I left! I was pleased to be able to spend money to support such a good cause (plus Mum is out of the country and I had to make up for all the trips she would make in there if she was home). I was also pleased to find some bits and pieces of vintage fabrics to create with. The green napkin is a very unusual colour and the most beautiful linen. I will probably embroider onto it. The embroidered tray cloth is so pretty. I think I might set up my sewing table again shortly. Plus I am making pumpkin soup for tea. Probably curried pumpkin soup 'cause I don't have any bacon to give it some extra flavour. Since I don't usually follow recipes a disaster may follow. I'll be happy to share it with you (in writing - I wouldn't make you eat my disaster). XXX
