Thanks to Good Friday and a day off work, I have finally finished the mobile that I started making for my nephew back in January (possibly December). I hope the poor chap doesn’t grow up with a bird phobia having had to stare up at birds with Coraline-esque button eyes while trying to get off to sleep.
Apologies for poor quality photo, and questionable sewing.
Wine and my mending pile, it’s a wild time in the Pigalina house.
I have been very slack lately with updates, that is because it has been the Christmas holidays and Dunedin has been basking in one of the best summers we can remember. Updating my blog has taken a back seat to lying in the sun, paddling in the sea and enjoying doing what I want, when I want. I have already had a week back at work, except there was little to no work to do. Tomorrow though will be the proper start to the working year (hence the mending, can’t go to work all holey) and I will endeavour to be more consistent in recording the fascinating life of a public servant, thirty-something in Dunedin New Zealand. Sounds riveting eh?
Awful weather and Mr Pigalina was in bed with flu so I spent the day on the sofa. Even though I watched Coronation Street, I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!, Come Dine With Me Omnibus, (and when Mr Pigalina joined me) Seven Years in Tibet and Voyage of the Dawn Treader I was not entirely unproductive! I completed my cat cushion and sock cow kits that I got for Christmas and my birthday.
Avoided town and the Boxing Day Sales and finished my Sock Monkey, Willard.
Had to break out the headlamp to sew some of Mr Pigalina’s costume.
Watch this space. Christmas party season is coming and at both Pigalina’s workplaces costumes are required. Unfortunately both parties are on the same day and the themes very different – Medieval and What I want to be when I grow up.
Time to get the needle ‘n’ thread out and sew one of the two spare buttons on my jacket. That’s right, the jacket I saved $111 on because it lacked a button.
