We woke up to a very slight scattering of snow, it has tried to snow a few times this morning but so far not successfully.

The fencer did not manage to get to us yesterday, so guess it will be Monday now. We are having a fence put where the hedge was to stop people being able to see from the lane right across the back of the bungalow. Once that is done I can get on with planting up the piece of garden which has been left exposed.

The temperature dropped ten degrees over night, I have lit the sitting room fire this morning.

Managed to the sewing machine for 10 minutes yesterday, made a cover for the last packet of tissues that had been knocking about for ages. I think I am going to get the blocks out for the ohio star quilt that I made 2 years ago and start to put them together, I need to sort out the corner triangles if I am going to put them 'on point'. I am not planning to quilt it myself its too big. I also cleaned the machine, I forgot to put the dust cover on it when I last used it.

I managed to get the fleeces washed and dried yesterday and also took down the net curtain from the sewing room and washed that, it was looking a bit grubby. It is useful for defusing the sun on my sewing machine which is on its table under the window. 

Cheese, onion and potato pie for supper tonight, with baked beans. 


  1. It's nice to know the snow mostly missed you and that laundry can still dry outside.

    Ta for the explanation about what job the fencer will do, makes sense, but I was puzzled by the mention of the shed. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it! :)

    Good for you in getting the tissue pack cover made. Amazing that it took so little time.

    My Ta DA! is that Emerald Isle is finished in the nick of time!!

    Happy St. Patrick's Day!


  2. Your supper sounds delicious-very much to my taste. Flakes of snow most of the day here and very cold due to the wind. Catriona
