What a bargain ... craft magazines, general news update
Now that's one thing I can't resist is craft books, esp when they on sale, or those specials when you get 2 or 3 magazines in a bag or the same price. It's the quilts and stitchery books I am after. Just to droll over the lovely quilts and great decorating ideas, still to make a big one one day. My first stop was a quick visit to a little antique store just up the road where I rummaged though a box and found 5 magazines at a $1 each.
So here's what I found 8 books for $2 from the hospital, last week they having a fundraising sale in the foyer. Lots of books, wooly things & knee blankets, cakes and jams, and a few small toys. All raising money for much needed medical equipment.
My old man is still in hospital, so until life gets back to normal I won't be posting much. My day is very full on, 2hrs travelling a day, still working 5hrs a day, then off to see George at the hospital which is close to work cause all his doctors are there. Then come home to feed the animals again. Now I off to the produce store too find out about the new septic tank I bought for Rose Cottage ... I hope they have ordered it by now.
Sheep update: I am thinking we might have news there soon, Bella's Mum is making little grunty noises this morning but no other signs yet. I left the spot light on over night, as the sheep were very restless. Damn foxes!
Have a lovely weekend and see ya all soon
