This one has birds on it!

Eeeeek! I feel like I'm running just to stand still at the moment. I have about as much energy as a sloth, and everywhere I look there are things to be done: ants to be rid of, dishwashers to unstack, late basil to plant, sheets to be washed, floors to be mopped, windows to be vinegared, books to reshelve, dust bunnies to exterminate, neighbour's jeans to be taken up, knitting to be frogged, overlockers to rethread, quinces to be poached, songs to be sung, hearts to be won (ok, I threw the last two in just to see if you are still with me).

At least I got another top for Grumbles made. Now that's something!
Project specs:

Design #15, Ottobre Magazine 1/2005 (same pattern as this one)
Fabric: Cotton quilting fabric
Ribbon: Very pricey fancy french ribbon

Fabric and ribbon from Patchwork on Central Park

  2. What kirsten said.

    Hey - I thought of you today over my lunchtime read ... have you heard of the new 'green' beer ?

    I remember Mr Jorth enjoys a drop:

    P.S. - did you ever try the lemon cordy ? Mm-mm-mm ;)

  6. Actually, Leslie, it's the end of basil's season, but a friend of mine gave me some seedlings on the weekend, and I'm scared she'll pop around unexpectedly and see it still sitting on benchtop!
