It has rained steadily all day but apparently not enough to break the drought. Good to see though!
Auckland apparently had an earthquake too at around 4 pm - first I knew was when a friend rang and said "did I fell that?". Nope. The husband said he heard a rumble...
So it has been a day of making tomato sauce and I am delighted at how the batch has turned out - it smelt delicious! Will be great for those spur of the moments dinners during winter.
We are amassing quite a collection of homemade preserves/ chutneys/ jams/ sauces!
(the jam is sitting there due to my non - exsistent sweet tooth! No one else is a big jam eater or they prefer Vegemite on their toast. OH! 3 more sleeps and marmite is back on the shop shelves in NZ! I think I will be at the supermarket before I get to school on Wednesday!)
Finished my shawlette and love it! I am looking for the wool tag as a reader Julie wanted to know what it is.. I just need to climb into the attic Julie and will let you know!
Next on the needles - these little pumpkins look adorable and the worsted wool is in the attic - a big bag of scraps from my aunt - which will be perfect. Autumn is on its way here. These would be fab for a blog swap item too I think!
And I think I might use one of the balls of wool I bought in Sydney for this gorgeous Oakley shawl - i had bought the wool for socks and then realised it has no nylon in it...
Bargains of the weekend from Typo - a $5 laptop bag and a $6 apple pen holder. (so sweet!!!) Goodness I think I am addicted to that shop and you can find quite the bargains on their clearance tables which are added to week to week!
