This is a bit of a Mexican stand off for me, I want to sew through the stash before buying new fabrics, I also want this project finished in the next few weeks.
Tomorrow I am off visiting and will be passing through Cross Hands on my way home, I will drop in to Isabeau Inspirations and pick up some fat quarters (fingers crossed). This evening I will be laying the project out and measuring to see just how many more flowers I need as I do not want to buy more fabric than I need.
My pile of hexies and the 2 flowers, as you can see the pinks are far too sparse.
Now onto a subject close to my heart, food, last nights dinner in fact.
A healthy veggy stir fry, I like lots of sauce and it has to be home made, I looked at this and thought "What, No Beansprouts!!!?"
They were sizzled in a separate pan as I like them very crunchy, then tipped on top and mixed in as I ate. It was very tasty and filling, and it needs to be.
This is why, far too much black there, but it is shrinking, I am being very careful in my eating and walking more. Not only was I feeling sluggish hauling 2 stones extra about it does not help the joint pain.
I have been known to declare that the best contraceptives were jogging bottoms and shell suits, mmmm point proved. I do have 2 pairs of these bottoms, both for gardening, and a bright Fuschia track suit in velour from Lidl that I wear when out and about walking. I bought it for the colour, they had it in Turquoise as well but the style was different and the trousers had those knitted cuffs so I did not buy.
Not a pretty sight, but I do not kid myself that I am anything but overweight, mind you this pair are a funny shape. From waist to knee these are loose and baggy and from knee to ankle they are close fitting. Before you do the dying fly I know that it isn't my shape as the others fit as they should do.
Tonights dinner is a jacket potato with Tuna and sweetcorn and a salad mostly from the garden.
I have to get myself in shape, my nephew in Australia has proposed to his lovely girlfriend and she said yes, lord love her, so there is a wedding in the future. They are on holiday in Singapore now but when they get back to Perth they will be arranging a date.
Now I must get Ben out before the heavens open again and sort out this potato.
