Here this week we have had this big beast mulching up all the shelter trimmings.
It was too dangerous and difficult to get close while it was working. It has done a great job.
Today I finished working in block 3 kiwifruit, so came home a bit early. There was some sunshine too which I lapped up as there hasn't been a lot here lately.
When it was wet we both went into the shed and completed shelling all the walnuts I collected and dried early. This is the final bag full. We store them in the freezer where they remain fresh and free flow for ages.
Quilting. I needed some stuffing for 6 clutch balls, I cut out the fabric parts for and ladies are going to make tomorrow, so I unpicked and un stuffed/de stuffed ( is there a correct term?)( reverse stuffing perhaps ) a fabric Christmas tree I made a couple of years ago and never liked much. It had a surprising amount in it. ( recycling)
I have also been into the parts department and sorted some left over half square triangles and cut and and sewn quite a few more to make a worthwhile number... to start making my next Charity quilt. Some of the fabric in the left over lot were very uninteresting colours and designs so I have pulled some light brights to give it a lift. Photos when I have really accomplished something.
Olympics. There is still plenty to watch. There were some unexpected medals and some of our competitors who must be really disappointed. (I don't think the media should predict wins before they happen.) My Aussie friends your medal table result has really improved, that must make you happy.
Last night we also saw some good results for the Canadians - D and N are you watching?
We are proud to hear that NZ has now, over many years, earned 100 Olympic medals although the first 3 ever were won as part of an Australasian team. So we will celebrate when we get to 103 as well!
