Look out, I've been sewing!!!

BUT
before I get onto that let me tell you about yesterday.

Sunday was a glorious sunny day
the birds were out en mass
so I chucked some bread out for them all.



I then checked in with my girls
to see if they were
playing nicely with our new be
Miss Autumn.

 No worries there!!

SO
with everything under control
outside
I decided to tackle the mounting pile of
WASHING!! 
Bloody washing machine decided to
pop a cog,
blow its foof-fu'
basically it shit itself
just when I needed it to spin the towels!!

So I had to hand wring the water out of a full load of towels while muttering obscenities and not under my breath I will have you know, then I had to scoop the water out of the dam washing machine.  Suddenly it came to me that we have a new laundromat around the corner so off I went.

I was going to ham it up and take selfies while I waited for my washing to do its thing, then I read all these signs about their security cameras and what they do with the film if people are dodgy.  So I sat quietly and read a magazine.

This morning my lovely washing machine fixer upper man arrived an installed a new heart (pump) so we are back in action.  Except today is crappy and wet, so 

**I SEWED**

Holy crap cakes
I even used my
IRON! 

 Pimping in full progress
while Oscar slept
and 
we both listened to
Frank! 
 

 So do you recognise the cardy??

Oh yeah
I have turned the
S for SMALL
into
S for SUE.
I am pretty stoked too!! 

Sheba and Oscar were
exhausted
from all the sewing excitement!!


I see an outfit coming together!!

Not only did I sew
I polished a pair of shoes
and
glued the red/green ones
that had a blow out.

Time for a cuppa!!!
(because I so have my shit together)

Great job with that cardi! I love some fringe and doodangley bits. I have not been very productive in the sewing department at all but I have been busy dying things.

Yes! That looks incredible. The sugar skull on the back will go with the Day of the Dead leggings. It is definitely your own now.

Ah, I do love fringe. Wouldn't it be fun to take a really conservative looking blazer and fringe the heck out of it like some cowboy stockbroker from hell? Wait. No. Maybe?
