|Day 72 of 75|
I didn't blog on Friday because I've been working on the commissioned dog portrait and I knew if I blogged I'd spend all afternoon visiting blogland and not one single dot of ink would be applied to the page. I should've been working on it today too but the animal shelter I volunteer at was having an open day so I went in this morning to help exercise all the dogs while the staff were making sure the place was all spic and span for the folk visiting in the afternoon.
|Day 73 of 75 - the end is in sight!|
Then in the afternoon, I missed the open day as we had to drive to the nearest big (relatively speaking) town 45 minutes away to buy a sewing machine (I bought new curtains for the 3 massive windows in our living room but they're all way too long - the downside of internet shopping as the first lot I bought had to be returned as they weren't the right colour and it cost me a fortune in postage to send them back!) Anyway, I can't use a sewing machine for the life of me so I'm very lucky to have a husband that can! Must've been his army training when he was young or something but he's a dab hand at making curtains from scratch so taking up a few hems will be a breeze!
