This week has seen me at the sewing machine just about every day. Christmas face masks have been flying out the door as people prepare to get into the festive season. Darren has been busy in the garden tidying, planting and picking.
Here's what else we've been up to -
* Made 2 batches of butter using the free cream I'd frozen.
* Cut many heads of broccoli, blanched and froze them.
* Darren picked a beautiful bunch of hot pink roses from the garden for my bedside table.
* Fed the compost bin almost every day with kitchen scraps.
* Made lots and lots of Christmas cards to sell and for us to give to friends and family.
* Sold lots of hanging tea towels that I'd made a few weeks ago.
* Went to a local op shop that was having a $1 store wide sale. I picked up a few shampoos I can use to make foaming hand wash. I also picked up a new silicon cake mould for $1 that usually retails for $12.99. I'll be using it for soap making.
* Megan, Darren and I lined up on the first night Kmart was open after lockdown. We picked up long sleeve tshirt type tops for $2 that usually retail for about $10 - $12. I bought enough to put some away for the next couple of years.
* Bought a few craft supplies from a $2 shop that are cheaper than the usual discount shops.
* Purchased knitting cotton for better than half price from Spotlight. I'm now fully stocked to make more knitted dish cloths over the next few years.
* Made a double batch of ANZAC biscuit dough. Some were baked and the rest were frozen for future baking. I also made a whole orange cake with an orange I'd frozen last year.
* Made and sold lots of Christmas face masks.
* Darren planted out lots of veggie seedlings and seeds.
