It's been quite awhile since I was able to get any large amounts of stash, but I have had a real treat!
I was given some money by a relative and told I had to spend it only on me and on something nice I'd enjoy (as I don't really spend much on myself).
Anyhow, Tom was off for two weeks to Bible school and was a bit short on being able to buy the laptop he'd been saving for. I knew he so wanted to take it with him as he could load it with research tools. So I gave him my money.
Now he has saved and has enough to pay me back so I visited sewandso and had a wonderful stash splurge!!
I'm SO excited!
Lastly 4 Rose coaster designs I wanted for my front room.
I'm over the moon and in total stashy drool mode!
And the good part of all this is, I still have a little money to get a few threads to use on the hardanger designs!
Back to cooking news ... Last night I made roast beef with roast potatoes, yorkshire puddings and lots of vegetables. Apart from the fact I was a bit stressed with the timing of things, I actually preferred this oven!
I think once I get used to it and learn it, I'm going to LOVE using it.
The oven being this high energy and different from the normal electric makes it a bit tricky, but overall, I think it's just a case of getting used to it.
Homemade lasagne for tea tonight, plus lots of vegetables. Let's hope it all goes to plan and I still like the cooker by this evening!
