A Sunday.

A Sunday in June.

A freezing cold, blustery, rainy, indoors day.

A roaring fire.

A fresh off the needles beanie. Raveled here.

A kid who is working her way through a twenty pack of new undies. She's wearing bright blue right now.

A pile of 32cm vintage sheets squares that are slowly being sewn back together again.

A gorgeous and generous gift of some sheet bits from Miss Jennie that I cut up before I photographed. Oops! Thanks Jennie. x

A little sister visitor who is crimping Miss Indi's hair and doing magazine quizes.

A pile of old caravan handles waiting to be attached.

A whole lot of time wasted with my new friend The Twitter. I'm foxslane there too.

A seven year old who is scared she might die because she ate half a big tub of off yogurt with homemade grape jelly.

A thought that I should probably clean out the fridge.

A caravan paint job on hold because Farmer/painter Bren had to leave for Melbourne for another funeral.

A new knitting project that looks like a jelly fish.

A wet pile of school uniforms waiting to be hung out.

A thought of a possibility that one day we might be ready enough to leave this place and head north and west.

What's your Sunday looking like?

See ya. x


  1. Twitter? Oh, you have gone to the dark side. I love it that I have some of those same fabrics in my stash too. Here in this house the boys are back from Scout camp and I have been washing, washing, washing, only to watch the rain start. Now I am going to sit and knit and watch Tinkerbell. The 4 year old has convinced her older brothers to watch it so I should go and give moral support lol. Oh, and I am enjoying knitting something small and colourful while my big cardi takes its time drying...

  2. cold, coughs, kids playing with the new ipad, cleaned out the car and cleaned all the garage sale treasures I found last weekend. Finished knitting my new cowl and now for a sip of red!

    Rach xx

  3. I always enjoy reading about your Sundays Kate, thanks for sharing. I'm hoping to post sometime this evening about my falling off the 'no fabric buying' wagon today - sad but fun ;-)

  4. Surely the fridge can wait? Though I well understand why twenty pairs of new underwear should be roadtested (it all happens in one day around these parts)...

  5. Is it Sunday? I didn't know. I've slept all day, minus time for some blog perusing and a bowl of cornflakes. I'm just trying to recover enough from the trip to Sydney and back to be able to have the enrgy to redecorate the other daughter's bedroom before she comes back in two, yikes one and a half, days. And we're having a Jillaroo pie, bought at the wonderful Heaterbrae pie shop, for tea. Cherrie

  6. I am studying....listening to an audio of a lecture....trying to dry clothes....sorting out uniforms....wondering if my boys will be happy with soup for dinner tonight....thining about church this morning....wishing I could read my latest book....glad I am warm, TK xx

  7. I've had a great day immersed in art and sunshine, and a well needed break away from my house of ill health !

  8. Really? Yoghurt can go off? I was bunkered down on the couch watching the movie 'Elizabeth' while the smalls were having rest time... but I had to turn it off because of all the awful violent things in it. Just can't cope with that sort of stuff today.
    Ms. M has woken with a fever so she has gone for a drive with her Dada. She loves to drive in the car when she doesn't feel well.

  9. A quiet Sunday here. Trip to the markets, left-overs for lunch, Mary Poppins on the TV, pork belly braising and a baby asleep in my arms. Perfect. x

  10. Sounds like a bisy but yet strangely laid back Sunday.

    I did a little ironing of patchwork fabric, bought a potato scrubber at Essential ingredient, and visited my hospital roomie for afternoon tea. An excellent Sunday in my books.

  11. ohh is your jellyfish knitting project a necklace/scarf kind of arrangement? I ask as it looks like one I made recently and just wore today. Love hearing about your caravan renos.

  12. hehehe... The Twitter ....hehehe

  13. A freckle faced, gappy toothed, rosy cheeked, smily pants sweetie pie!! I heart Sunday x

  14. Now that you are on twitter I will want to be! ( pathetically)

  15. What a Sunday ... love the 20 pairs of undies!!

  16. Wow! What a Sunday you had! So much going on at yours and every single photo a winner :) Love those caravan handles - such gorgeous things. We went to a local fete. I saw my big girl dance at the fete and then run off to the movies with her friends (a strange feeling of her still being my baby and being a lot more grown up all at once). I scurried home to crochet more triangles and worry about when she'd be home again ;) Beautiful weather though. Hope the sun shined on you and that farmer Bren is okay after the funeral. North and west project sounds very exciting :) Kx

  17. That should be "shone", shouldn't it? Language skills disappearing obviously ;) Kx

  18. Hope we get to see some photos of the crimped hair! And that knitting project looks interesting!?

    I got some koala's sewn whilst he took the kids out. AND been trying to get uniforms dry for tomorrow too!xx

  19. I dont twit:) I have signed up but it scares me...
    Is that 7circles??? It has been on my todo for so long - maybe I sould do it:)
    I put my parents on the plane back home this morning and then we hit the organic farmers market. We are getting over a host of germs here and it is the first weekend in weeks that we have been well enough to go out (DH has been away for 6 weeks and I am certain we have had someone sick every week:(

  20. Beautiful hat, beautiful blog - love from Norway =))

  21. Your little lady is so darn cute, love her beanie, just gorgeous.
    That homemade icecream and grape jelly looks spectacular, I would have devoured the lot... and not thought twice ;o)
    You'll get there Kate, something always gets us across the line when it comes to the things we really want to do xo

  22. *Sorry, yoghurt with homemade grape jelly... it looked too good to just be yoghurt ;o)

  23. Sounds like a Cosy winter day, I caught a bus, a train, a bus again, now at the airport since 7, waiting for a 1:45 flight, nearly there, 11:55 now, thank goodness for iPhones and 3G!

  24. Wow that's a whole lotta stuff going on for a's hoping you find some quiet peace time for you this week.

  25. Sounds like a great Sunday to me :)
    Ours was spent shopping for a TV entertainment unit (no luck)and having lots of nanna naps :)
