Well, I didn't think I would get to do any sewing this weekend but I managed a little after all. these are some more pinwheels for my secret project. I do love these earthy colours.
Last night my hubby and I went to see "Love Never Dies". It was for my husband more than me. He loved "The Phantom". We saw it together in Melbourne and I am pretty sure he has seen it in Sydney and London as well. "Love Never Dies" was certainly a spectacle. The sets and the costumes were amazing but I have to say that i still prefer the musical classics like "My Fair Lady" and "Mary Poppins". Even hubby said it wasn't as good as he expected. We are glad we went but I don't think he will be going multiple times as he did with "The Phantom".
Often my hubby is given "freebies" - corproate gifts. Recently he was in the US to buy a large piece of equipment on behalf of his company and he came back with quite a few gifts. A business card holder, a a really neat spray jacket, a really nice backpack, an umbrella and even a model rocket. The rocket because my husband is a satellite communications engineer and he works for a satellite communications company. But back to the gifts - the most novel gift he received was this -
it came in a nice white box with a smart metallic clasp.
And inside the box were these - the orange one has a blade on it for scoring orange peel so that you can peel it more easily. The green one has a serrated edge on it to cut kiwi fruit with and which doubles as a spoon to spoon to scoop out the flesh! Not sure I would put these in my hand bag and carry them around as the are metal and pretty heavy and I don't eat that many oranges or kiwi fruit when I am out but they are sure cute!
That is all for me for now.
Till next time............happy stitching.
