31 Days of Blogging - Day 4

Sunday a day of rest and reflection .....

Drat, misses a sleep-in opportunity, awoke at 06.20 hours, well, suppose it was a bit of a sleep in, not the usual 05.00 hours.

Prepared my uniforms for the week. Did a bit of necessary house work. Cooked a Roast Chicken in the Varoma in the Thermomix.  Did the veges in there as well, not to bad at all, and the gravy, was the bees knees.

Have not had the television at all today. Just listened to "Death of a Dustman" by MC Beaton. I draw them put of the local library, or rather download them onto my tablet. I am unsure if city libraries have the same facility, but if they do and you enjoy reading, audio books are fantastic, you can sew and "read" at the same time.

In my sewing world, today I cut out block 4 in Pies and Tarts. The one I am doing is by Sue Daley from Patchwork with Busyfingers. It was a block of the month. Meanwhile, I am still assembling month two.

Here is a small selection of the basted Pie pieces I managed today.


  1. It's lovely to see you seeing again :)

    1. Thank you, it is lovely to be back in the sewing world.

  2. I listen to audio books (also from the public library) when I sew too. Light detective stories like Beaton's are among my favourites. I have tried heavier classics but I get distracted and lose the thread of the story while concentrating on my needlework.

  3. Agree with you Carla re the heavier plots, I to get distracted and lose the thread of the story. Can you recommend any other authors or books? I am addicted to them. We have lousy television at present (well most of the time truth be known). I did sign up for Foxtel, but they took forever so I cancelled it, because while I was waiting for Foxtel that is when I found audio books!
