Since I work full-time, the weekends are when I achieve the most around the house. Today has been no exception. All of the backlog of ironing was done yesterday along with most of the washing so today I was able to focus on other things.
First on the agenda was the Farmers’ Markets. We also picked up a few things at Aldi and bought some fresh Tasmanian salmon from the fish shop. I have done a menu plan so I have meals planned for the rest of the week.
Then I got on with my sewing. I finished the doona cover and am very happy with how it turned out. Here are a couple of photos.
While I was on a roll I made a drawstring bag for the pegs that I use with the indoor clothes airer. The airer is actually a portable rotary clothesline which we bought from Kathmandu so I needed durable storage for the pegs for when we are travelling. I found the piece of material that was an offcut from when I modified a tablecloth from a rectangular one to square. That was years ago and the table and cloth now live at Belle’s place but the scraps live on!
I also cooked this afternoon – made lasagne which we had for dinner plus 4 serves to go in the freezer, roasted some pumpkin which is now in the slowcooker turning into pumpkin soup. I find that roasting the pumpkin first adds extra depth of flavour to the soup. Finally I made 2 dozen Banana & Walnut muffins, using Lauren’s famous muffin recipe.
