Everything here seems to be moving very slowly of late. Except weekends - they always seem to be gone in the blink of an eye- what's up with that?
So, last week Indy decided to impale himself on a tree branch in our yard (you have to ask how that's even possible really) and we had to make another Sunday night trip to the vet. It was pretty nasty - the tree branch went in about 3 inches and ricocheted off his rib cage. Post surgery he enjoyed very cool drugs and tolerated the drain for 24 whole hours before he pulled it out meaning we had to do another unexpected vet run. At least he has a great near death story to tell the neighbourhood dogs.
In keeping with the slow theme of last week I've been busy hand stitching some more hexie flowers. 29 down ...20 to go.
I've decided our guest room needs a makeover. I'm over the look of black and white and have decided to go for something completely different. I'm desperate to start this quilt as part of the process but I've promised myself Superheroes and the large hexagon quilt need to be finished first. That's meant to motivate me but honestly it just feels like a punishment.

Little P came for a sleepover on Saturday and we made lamingtons together. If you look carefully you can see the dents where he was heavy handed with the cake while dipping. They still tasted awesome.
He had a crack at making jelly and had to wait all night for it to set properly.
Which was actually quite fortuitous because it meant he could eat his jelly on pancakes for breakfast. Ugh!
And we finally got round to planting the Hyacinth and Tulip bulbs and this was the look of disappointment on his face when I told him it would be 12 weeks or more until the flowers appeared.
Hopefully I'll finish something this week .....
