The week has been made up of several golden mini moments which has made choosing a favourite for this week more difficult than usual. I guess that means it's been a pretty good week.
My parents finally got Skype this week. It's taken my Dad 18 months to hook up the webcam we gave him the Christmas before last. You cant rush these things. May I remind you Dad that hooking up a web cam does not make you a surveillance expert or Bill Gates. I don't care if you had a birthday this week , these delusions of grandeur simply have to stop.
I had a planned day off mid week which was lovely. I went picked up some US dollars at the bank. It's funny money -it's all one colour and made from paper which is totally different to Aussie money. I'm not used to having to actually look at notes to work out how much they're worth. In Australia our money is different colours so I just open my purse and grab the purple one or the orangey red one.
In the last week or so I've received squishy mail of the exciting variety . Firstly from Amanda who knows a girl who loves chenille can never have enough. See that pink swirly one? I actually squealed when I opened the package.
And secondly from Nanci , who very thoughtfully sent me these little gems in exchange for some fabrics I recently sent her. I love it when I see things I want to buy but don't and then they arrive in my post box anyway!
My apron tutorial was featured on Totally Tutorials this week. Normally I'm happy to hang round my own patch so it was a big stretch for me to put myself out there . I got such a thrill seeing my tutorial somewhere other than my own blog. Thank you Linda for suggesting I do it.
At the beginning of the year I talked about our planned verandah makeover. It's been slow going and we aren't finished yet.The garden bed and retaining wall are almost finished and I bought a couple of large cane swivel chairs for the veranda with the idea to recover them in gorgeous fabric, but they just never seemed quite right for that space. I've been looking for an outdoor bench/seat that I can do something magnificent with for about three months and this week I finally found one.
This is my favourite thing this week. An antique miners couch. Stay tuned to this space for the end result in a few weeks. It doesn't look like much right now but if the vision in my head can be translated to reality it's going to look utterly fabulous. I keep imagining myself curled up on that couch with a good book watching the world go by.
Enjoy your Friday. The weekend is almost here . Whooooooooo Hoooooooo! Oh and if you want to share your favourite thing this week you know the drill.
