We've had that crazy rain today. You know the kind that falls by the bucket load with big plip plop plops one minute and stops the next? Sort of a thunderstorm with lightning and thunder, but its' over almost as quick as it begins.
Although the rain put a slight damper on our plans, at least it's cooler, even when the sun comes out.
For that I am very thankful, the humidity has been barely tolerable these last few days.
So I've spent a lovely day rescuing the fabric I destroyed last Sunday in a pathetic attempt to make a blouse for myself.
A seamstress is just another item I'll add to the list of things I CAN'T do. It's right below knitting, but my knitting woes are a story for another day.
So I resurrected my blouse and made myself a pinny!
Or apron as I believe most folks call them.
I even made a rather feeble attempt to embroider a little hen on the front to cheer myself up a little when I wear it. Hopefully push away the frustration I experienced with my blouse sewing disaster.
At least I was able to save this lovely piece of fabric I picked up a few weeks back for next to nothing.
Well I must be off. I've recently secured a lovely new tin of Lyle's Golden Syrup (rare as hens teeth on this side of the pond - mail order only you know) and I'm off to don my pinny and whip up some yummy Anzac Biscuits for our afternoon tea.
