Thursday fun and games

Well after doing my scones fresh this morning I toddled of to our State conference..also with my item from recycled materials for the competition..

I had no proper criteria for the scones so didn’t get anywhere with them..they were light as air and I thought pretty good..i didn’t get a chance to grab the judge and find out where they missed out but she did say that the scones were all great but missing in some criteria…this criteria is beguiling…so she is going to do  class in what the judges look for..bonus is I still have a batch of really yummy scones!

Not too bad I don't think!

But bizarrely I am an occasional sewer and took an item that was made from recycled goods…my fave work jeans which were ripped to shreds at the knee had a butt blowout thus causing them to be dead! I also had a heap of old tea towels that the CWA were going to throw out,some old doilies of my grandmas and some old buttons of my grandmas..so I made a bag..

I lined the inside with a teatowel and made an internal pocket..this is inside out

At least I didn't come home empty handed and I got a book voucher

I love the certificate and maybe with the book voucher I can by a book titled “criteria for show judging scones! ”

I met hubby at the vet with Doc who was getting his vac’s and am relieved that the wart on his back that had been bleeding is okay..thankyou!! a huge relief..

So tonight I am packing bags for our brief trip,lists are written instructions for the pets…

And hubby has made great strides getting 16 metres of fencing done with just …59 to go…….

Well done Phil..

Well done Phil..

59 to go....

So when we get back it’s back to the grindstone..the weather is lovely in Brisbane so some sun will help us get re-energised as it has been bitterly cold here!!

Talk and blog when I return stay safe all and enjoy you weekend 🙂 Fozziemum
