Paint the shed. It was here when I arrived, but I did not find it straight away, I had to hack my way through the undergrowth to find it. I am not really exaggerating, it is sheltered under a tree and the brambles had gone up and over the roof.
Anyway, it was dry inside although very shabby so I pressed it into service. I had bought some wood stain for the repurposed shoe rack, that now lives in the greenhouse, there was loads left and I managed to put 2 coats on.
I also got 2 loads of washing, done, dried, ironed and put away, upstairs had its regular Monday blitz, how did the socks get behind the dressing table mirror?
Today was sewing and grass cutting. It finally registered that Junior has a birthday at the end of the month, and a cake cushion was on order from him.
I got this cut out early, then whizzed round the house and went to the library. After walking Ben I got stuck in and pieced, layered and quilted it. I did a simple envelope back in navy blue and used some red and white binding left from another project. Once the binding was stitched to the front I had to get out and cut the grass.
Before dinner I had a little play with the Janome Horizon and finally got the button holes in these little gift bags.
Dinner was a simple sauce, of lean steak mince and vegetables, I spotted a version on Sarina's Frugal Kitchen so made that, I added a tin of tomatoes chopped and some Worcestershire sauce, it was good poured over some steamed cauliflower.
After dinner had been cleared and the kitchen put to rights I stitched the binding down while I watched Criminal Minds on the sky box. Not bad, but not a great episode.
Now I have some Rizzoli and Isles to catch up with, again not bad but I prefer the books, I just fancy some easy watching while I do some EPP.
More gardening tomorrow and some more sewing (I hope) from my book.
