Thanks to Levin of I wannabe crafty for the title of this post. I think Levin would have been quite busy skinning the tomatoes that she got at the Torrens Island Market today. I completed the second Christmas Wish BOM from Gail Pan Designs two down and seven to go. I'm quite enjoying doing them, blogging about it seems to make me more accountable somehow.
I also put the borders on these blocks from the Noahs Ark BOM at Lynette Anderson Designs most of these blocks are quite small so don't take long to do, I'm using up all the small bits of fabric that I have been hoarding. (you know, the ones that you don't want to throw out because they might come in handy some day, and they have)
And on the food production front I made 3 jars of tomato sauce and some roti and Pumpkin Dahl. The roti were acceptable although I think that next time I will make them with white flour instead of atta flour (wholemeal chapatti flour) We have Singaporean neighbours and I asked them how they made their roti (thinking that maybe I would get a demonstration of roti making) and they said "oh, we buy the frozen ones, they're very good, you know."
I managed to half watch one of the tv shows I had recorded, except I fell asleep halfway through, this seems to be a regular occurrence now. I'm still planning the planting for the garden, so far I'm thinking about kale, silver beet (swiss chard), and snow peas, any further suggestions welcomed.
