We began our day off with a trip into the city – to deliver a huge box of books to the charity bookshop, then to the bank and a few other places. We parked by the Cathedral, and having 20 minutes left on our ticket when we’d finished, we called in to see the exhibition of sculptures, by Fenwick Lawson, an artist from the NE of England.
Both of us liked the “Burning Bush” best
The detail on the carving was wonderful
Back home for lunch and Bob set about cleaning the patio with the Pressure Washer. “Come and take a photo” he said, when he was halfway through the task
The whole area is clean now. Great job, Bob!
Whilst he was washing, I was sewing – making some Christmas presents. Here’s a few ‘teaser’ shots. These are for food-related gifts, but that’s all I am saying!
I used three different machines to embroider, overlock and sew this particular project.
This evening, Bob had a meeting, so I made some cookies. We have our Connexion Group tomorrow night, and we’ve been asked to make a favourite cake and take the recipe along to share. I decided that Steph’s 4am cookies [recipe here] would be a safe bet, so made a batch.
I stacked them in fours, and wrapped them in baking parchment, before tying them securely in polybags with a recipe sheet.
And now they are in an airtight box ready for tomorrow night. As well as the bags of cookies for people to take home, there are also some to eat during the evening – and a tin of leftovers [some mis-shapen, some slightly overbaked] for Bob to enjoy!
A satisfyingly productive day. Now I am stopping, and sleeping!
