9 oclock

this is what I was doing at 9 o'clock last night the bottom photo...the orange one!

just been doing these whenever I have a few minutes spare...
didn't realise I had achieved so much with so little time!
total is up to 134!
think I need to lay them all out to check out the colour lots more preppedm but may not need them all....still have to do all the embroidered filler ones yet...done about 20 so far...and I think I need about 60?
oh well I did say in the beginning this was a long term project!

quite crowded and noisy...

whole tray (33) lamb loin chops $20
pork loin chops  $7 kilo usually between $14 and $18

best part of my day

coming home from, 
having dinner already cooked (in the slow cooker!)
and then 
laughing so hard together as a family that we all had tears running down our faces...
new car seat covers arrived 
and DH decided to use the headrest cover as a hat...
he looked like a Cossack!
imagine big black furry oversized cossack hat...

(sorry no pics, we were laughing too much!)
