January 1st 2014

Happy New Year!

I had a great day today.  Decided to stay in my PJ's, cleaned the kitchen and then decided to clean out my food cupboards. Didn't have that much to throw out, mainly just putting open foods and cooking ingredients into containers.  Did have some out of date rolled oats to throw out so went up to the chook pens to give them a treat.  Was thrilled to find out that I had 2 new babies that had hatched today.  There is nothing cuter than little fluffy chickens.

Have a heap of stitching waiting for today to start or to start working on again.
I started on a Joan Elliott design called Medieval Lady.  She is very pretty. 

Asked Alan to get a tub of fabric out of my shed as I needed to source some 38 or 40 count fabric to dye for a SAL I am in.  Found all sorts of lovely fabric that I haven't seen for nearly three years.  I probably have at least another tub of fabric in that shed as well.

Anyhow, the fabric I decided to use is a 38 count Italian fabric.  I love this fabric.  I boiled up a good few tablespoons of loose leaf tea and then poured it over the pre-washed fabric scrunched into a jug.  I will rinse it out tomorrow morning and hang it out to dry.  Hope to popmy first stitches into The Snooty Parrot tomorrow.
