Sew, Sew, Sew

The weather this week in Hobart has been dull and dreary. It has not stopped raining and the sun is no-where to be seen. After spending the morning at a friends place, I came home and started sewing. I have a sewing room but with the cold and dullness of the day I prefer to sew in the lounge room where I can listen to music, make cups of tea and be warmed by the heat pump. It feels lonely in the back room by myself.

I feel a bit overwhelmed by the amount of sewing I want to do before baby comes. Only about 5 weeks to go now. So I have stopped procrastinating and am beginning to get on with the job. As I was sewing today and even though I was already listening to music, I kept thinking of this crazy 'Sewing Machine' song by Steve Poltz. Daniel and I saw this guy a few years ago at the Republic Bar and Cafe . I think he was supporting Bob Evans. Anyway, this is the only song I remember from his set as it was unique, strange, crazy and just a tad terrifying.

I hope you enjoy Steve Poltz's song :)

How does our garden grow?

This year our effort at growing veggies was dismal. The corn kept being eaten by snails, our leek was stunted and our tomatoes were few. Instead of growing pumpkins, which we have had no success in during the past two summers, we decided to try for squash (same family but smaller) and we still failed. The only real success we had were the strawberries and zucchini. Maybe next year we will have a bit more of a green thumb :)

Anyway, here is a photo of tomato love-heart, from one of the few tomatoes that actually did grow this year.
