Last week Thaya of Beatnik Bazaar tagged me. The task? To show what Friday looks like here.
First up, a great big giant cup of Skinny coffee.
Next, got Emile's bed outside (as per his request - he stands in the spot and stares at the ground until I get the 'hint').
The sun arrived, as predicted.
Got a load of laundry into the machine first thing, so that I could wash another load and get it dry. These are old woollen coats, now in pieces, that I'm hoping to print on and make bags and things from.
Took advantage of the first warm day in ages to block the collar of a new cardigan. Vintage pattern and vintage wool.
Finished sewing up a bunch of notebook covers.
Swept the house out. It was only after we moved here that I realised that this is where dust is made. Probably should have damp mopped as well, but got bored.
Salt River market for veggies! This week the yams were all individually labelled as "Yam" - with post-its.
Fresh peas, broad beans, and some of those green things. I forget what they're called, but they're really good diced and cooked in stock with potatoes. Also, a rolling pin, for printing. This one is made from a solid piece of wood, instead of having the handles glued in, and it's heavy. Strangely enough, bought at the gas place, not the market.
Lunch. Scrambled egg and pea sandwiches. Really wanted bacon and egg, but the shop was out of cooked bacon. Compensated by cooking the peas in lots of butter and adding cheese.
A bit of real work: started cutting a custom lino block for someone to print with.
Finished off a repeat pattern that someone else will have printed up and make dresses from!
Sanded down a blackboard I painted in spare moments last week. Made from an old picture frame.
Cut card inners for the notebook covers.
And finally, a bit of scampering.
What I didn't do: make the bed, get glass for the kitchen window, cut linings for bags. Oh, well.
