The left front of the cardigan is complete so I put it aside and have gone back to the Quaker Christmas Sampler and much progress has been made.
Tonight I made the DBEM a special Japanese meal as she has been voicing a hankering for Chawanmushi. It was rather tasty if I do say so myself. It has been DBEM day here1 During the afternoon I stitched a Pop Over Presto Top for her in a cerise merino fabric. When we have so many sheep in New Zealand there seems little reason not to go for merino:-) besides which this past week has been chilly temperatures.
Tomorrow I have a day off work - for a WOF for my pacemaker and my teeth. Surplus time will be spent sewing - for myself this time.
And a funny story. Last weekend I was clearing out a cubby hole in my roll top desk and happened across an old wallet stuffed with Australian Dollars, lots of Australian Dollars:-) So I took myself off to the bank and turned them into my favourite New Zealand Dollars and indulged in a new toy and banked the balance. It is many years since I had a trip across The Ditch so it felt like unearthing buried treasure1
This is for my Active August Campaign!
So to a chorus of "thank you dear, that was lovely" from the DBEM good night all.
