Sunday Supplement: Week #2

We've made it through week number 2! Woo hoo!

I don't know which is a more exciting discovery for this week - that you can grow your own back scrubber or that it's actually a tasty fruit packed with Vitamin K.

I bought some seeds in the Suttons sale and when they arrived, they came with a free packet of Luffa - that's a back scrubbing loofa to you and me.

Who knew? Probably everyone but me, but that's okay because my mind is blown and I'm going to grow edible back scrubbers this year! Woop!

Okay dokay - I have chosen my first sewing project of the year. Actually, I feel like I've been sewing Tilly's toys non-stop since the start of the year (she's a chewer/destroyer) so I'll rephrase that first sentence to say that I have chosen my first dressmaking project of the year.

It's to be Kwik Sew 3874. Yes, it's a summer outfit but I'm being realistic and should I take as long as I have been known to, at least it won't be July and I end up with something I can't wear for another 6 months. This way, by the time it's finished it'll be ready to wear for a lovely summer's day.

I'm going to make the "romper" because who can resist the word "romper" (*giggles*) and because, hello? - it has pockets!

I know you shouldn't laugh at yourself - or at least you shouldn't laugh at your own jokes but I just couldn't help myself with this.

Anyone remember #alaskagate on The Great British Bake Off last year? Well, the star of that incident is the lovely Iain Watters. One of his twitter followers was in America and spotted GBBO on the telly. He promptly told Iain.

I can't help it - I'm still laughing at my response!!


  1. LOL at the US ending! If only, eh? And I heartily agree with the last one ... but there is also a slight case of "if only" with that one too! :oD

  2. It would be great if Iain tweeted that he'd won the US version!! Ha ha ha! And we should totally do what we've always wanted to do - it would be awe-some!


Thank you for your comments.
