1. Gardening - I have roses to plant, silver birches and chinese elms to prune and lots of weeding which I have been putting off. I would also like to ask the neighbours if I can have some of their horse poo to put on my rose bed. Trouble is, I will have to go and collect it myself, unless the poo fairies come.

|Well, it is not much to look at now, but someday my driveway will be lined with elegant silver birches|
2. Sewing - recently I bought a pile of vintage sheets from the Salvos and I aim to convert them into dresses. My goal is to have one hundred items in my shop, so that means thirty more dresses. I think I am up for the challenge
|Here's one I made recently from a sheet which already had embroidery|
|It's hard to tell, but this cot sheet had green bears playing instruments. Weird. Now a size 5 sunfrock.|
3. Mother Daughter time - the Pickle shares my love of op-shopping and has recently developed a penchant for hot chocolate, so I think we will see eye to eye when it come time to choose what to do!
I have also borrowed "Calamity Jane" to watch (I asked Mr D if I could borrow it, and the next day, there it was on my desk with a second DVD and a note that read "If you like 'Calamity Jane', you'll love 'Annie Get Your Gun'", so I guess we'll watch that too!)
Here's a treasury I made recently, in my quest to take over the Australian Etsy front page I have been making at least one treasury each day. I find it quite relaxing to sit down after dinner, choose a theme and collate the items. I do like the colours in this one. And yes, I named it after a U2 album. I am a U2 tragic, it's true.
