We woke this morning to a terrible storm with heavy heavy rain. It has been like that all day with terrible winds as well. Around the area paddocks are flooded, there have been a lot of accidents and when SH was out of town he had to drive through a substantial amount of water to get home. While I was ironing this morning the tv all of a sudden lost reception, this happens occasionaly in bad weather so I turned it off and thought nothing more of it until I turned it on at lunchtime to watch a little 'Ellen', nothing , not a thing, so I looked out the window and in the storm we lost our huge ginormous antenna!!! Oops, no tv today, hopefully someone will look at it tomorrow and who knows how long until it is fixed!
Very hard to see in this photo but you can just see the crashed antenna on the left!
This is the second piece of destruction for today, if you guessed Jimmy you are right! This was my favorite, my only winter hat, so soft and comfortable, possum wool brought back as a gift from New Zealand for me. To say I was cross is an understatement, it is a wonder I could not be heard from the other side of the world!!! Oh well I will have to go hatless for the rest of winter now! Jimmy luckily is being allowed to live!
I bought this magazine last week and had no intention of confessing to it! To be honest when I saw it was for a 'beginner' quilter and came with an instructional dvd I had to have it. I feel very inadequate with my quilting knowledge which is probably why I do a lot of stitching and rarely finish anything. I am also not great at asking for help! I was thrilled looking through the magazine to see it had 12 projects , each focused around one technique. Of the 12 projects only 2 of them don't interest me but that doesn't mean I won't attempt them. I thought I may work my way through the magazine giving myself 1 project a month to work on. In theory this will take 12 months (yes I can do math!) but I am planning to start in September so I can get fabric for the first quilt when I am out of town later this month. Let's see how I go!!!!
