Catch Up

My blog posts are few and far between this year! Just can't seem to  get into any sort of routine at all. The days whizz by in a blur, does time go faster as one gets older I wonder??

 Duntroon Garage is now doing warrants ...yay to our mechanic David who pasted the tough test. We also now sell Pies, chips and drinks, due to the fact that Duntroon's pub has closed and our Flying Pig Cafe has shut doors for the winter. People kept coming in asking where they could buy food, it was getting embarrassing having to tell people "sorry no where in this town, but have a biscuit to tide you over". LOL, no lies, we did offer people biscuits, some people looked really hungry and in need of food.

On Friday we took Aimee and her partner Jermaine to Christchurch and at 6 am Saturday morning they left NZ for the bright lights of Brisbane. Hope they have a wonderful 12 days.In the mean time I am "Rat Sitting"...hmmmmm, not enjoying Dyni's company too much, at the moment he is running around my craft room, but his visit will be brief, soon hes going back to his cage!! (Sorry Aimee)

On the craft front things are kind of slow. I have been working on a painting of an old truck, and I'm knitting a scarf, apart from that Ive done nothing since the Embellish Its scrap crop day in Oamaru, but maybe, just maybe I will get onto some scrappy project latter this week. Time will tell!

Just for fun thought Id post this photos, acquired latterly from an old friend. I once lived in this sack, back in, it doesn't look much better than Aimee's horrid flat on Hyde St in Dunedin! 
 Funny the things one does when one is young!!

Now back to scrapping...
These are two of the pages I worked on at EmbellishIt's Crop day in oamaru

The denim flowers were made by simply rolling a strip of fabric and sewing as I rolled. 

I pinched these photo's of Aimee and her beloved off her facebook page! 
I have kept this page super simple and it was very quick to throw together...definatley a 'no Fuss' Page!

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
