Thursday fun and games


Well after doing my scones fresh this morning I toddled of to our State conference..also with my item from recycled materials for the competition..

I had no proper criteria for the scones so didn’t get anywhere with them..they were light as air and I thought pretty good..i didn’t get a chance to grab the judge and find out where they missed out but she did say that the scones were all great but missing in some criteria…this criteria is beguiling…so she is going to doย  class in what the judges look for..bonus is I still have a batch of really yummy scones!

Not too bad I don't think!

Not too bad I don’t think!

But bizarrely I am an occasional sewer and took an item that was made from recycled goods…my fave work jeans which were ripped to shreds at the knee had a butt blowout thus causing them to be dead! I also had a heap of old tea towels that the CWA were going to throw out,some old doilies of my grandmas and some old buttons of my grandmas..so I made a bag..

I lined the inside with a teatowel and made an internal pocket..this is inside out

At least I didn't come home empty handed and I got a book voucher

I love the certificate and maybe with the book voucher I can by a book titled “criteria for show judging scones! ”

I met hubby at the vet with Doc who was getting his vac’s and am relieved that the wart on his back that had been bleeding is okay..thankyou!! a huge relief..

So tonight I am packing bags for our brief trip,lists are written instructions for the pets…

And hubby has made great strides getting 16 metres of fencing done with just …59 to go…….

Well done Phil..

Well done Phil..

59 to go....

59 to go….

So when we get back it’s back to the grindstone..the weather is lovely in Brisbane so some sun will help us get re-energised as it has been bitterly cold here!!

Talk and blog when I return stay safe all and enjoy you weekend ๐Ÿ™‚ Fozziemum

    • Hahahah it is a disgrace this food photography!! they taste amazing made with no recipe just like I watched my grandma do for years ..:( and yes a lot of fencing to go but it will be a big safe area and now way can Fozzie bear jump it for a roo chase!! and it will be snake proof…we are thinking of dismantling the cat enclosure and topping the fence with special cat proofing too ๐Ÿ™‚

        • Exactly..they are safe while we are here with them but I wouldn’t trust Fozzie not to go after a roo and the results would be bad..for him..this way they have a huge area and we can go out for longer than two hours …:( don’t like leaving them in the house for too long ..it’s not fair..

  1. You deserved the first place – it looks great! My mom and their freaky friends made this bags with denim jackets, they only placed a seam on the bottom and the button border and used the connected sleeves as strap (the sleeves were the secret stash for illegal stuff). Then they added a gazillion sticker buttons and kinky brooches and another nightmare of the 80’s was ready. 59 metres of fence that’s a lot. we still struggle with our pitiful 18 metres :o)

    • The 80’s were some of the cruellest fashion times ever…my Olivia Newton John black tights and electric blue velvet stillettos were a testament to the tragedy! and sheesh the fence….it’s almost the Green mile ;(

  2. You’re backyard is amazing. So much more magical than mine. I think I could live in yours forever! There’s places I could walk where my hooves wouldn’t touch the grass – this piggies delight!
    And your scones – thud. So should have won. They look delicious. I could easily eat one or 1/2 a dozen – snorts.
    And mommy said she loves your sewing. They are so cute and adorable! XOXO – Bacon
