Got a few things done around the house today. I took a photo of these chookies I finished on the weekend. They had been waiting for a few months for eyes 🙂 They are all real chooks now, ready to sit on a cookbook and keep the pages open for someone.
Elizabeth baked yummy breadrolls. Last night I had made mini meatballs to put in them, and this morning she was up early putting the flour etc in the bread machine. She then shaped the dough around the meatballs, glazed them with egg wash and sprinkled sesame seeds on top. They turned out really well! And with flour so cheap here, they cost next to nothing (just the other day I bought 5kg of flour for only $1!!).
After the sandstorm and thunder storm everything was dirty, so the boys and I went to work outside around the house. We swept and then hosed down the area in front of our house:
As you can see, we have a little garden in the front:
A high wall surrounds our house (and everyone else’s, for privacy). That door you see there is the gate to the world. As soon as Elizabeth and I go out that gate, we need to make sure we are covered. I will post a photo one of these days of how we look 🙂
We didn’t get to cleaning the sides of the house….. they still look like this:
and even worse, this:
But at least we got the front done so that we are not constantly walking all the dirt in the house. It gets in enough by itself!
I managed a few minutes in the sewing room… to make another little 4″ log cabin block:
Will they turn into chooks? Wait and see….
Tomorrow morning is class with my sewing ladies. We are going to pin and start quilting the table runners. One good thing about teaching a class and sewing alongside your students is that you end up with a FINISHED PROJECT! At least, you should…!!
Bedtime… have a lovely weekend everyone 🙂
