Jumbling my Memes........again!

JaM-Another week flying past

I think I blinked and missed a few days this week, had to be the reason it flew like it did. 
 It was a pretty solid week of study trying to get lots done and running into some bits that were frustrating which held me up a bit. 

I turned the lights off and the key in the door for the last time in my Website on Friday. A little sad but totally sure that it was the right thing to do at the right time. I found out how many lives I had touched when the emails, cards and the occasional gift started to arrive. All very unexpected but such a nice way to finish. I spent Sunday packing what was left  and giving the sewing room a really good clean. I even managed to start playing with some fabric for a quilt I want to start soon.
The sun is shining, blossom is on the trees and although there are more cold days to come, Spring is finally here!!!!!

MPAY-Making something out of nothing

Making something out of something else, recycling, repurposing or whatever you would like to call it is something I do all the time.
Doily's become pincushions, dolls clothes or maybe even a part of a quilt.
 Old curtains, clothing or fabric from anywhere is turned into Quilts, bags and dolls clothes too.
What do you recycle into something else, making something out of nothing?

Sweet Little things about Me-Vegemite or Peanut Butter

If I had to make a choice it would be Vegemite but I rarely even have it because I am not a toast or snack eater.  I can remember when we were little Mum used to make us Vegemite broth. A teaspoon of Vegemite in a cup of hot water. It was supposed to build us up when we were sick. Did any one else's Mum do that?
I do eat Peanut butter but rarely and that is usual off a teaspoon. We all have our vices you know.
Join in over here and tell us if your a Vegemite person or do you prefer Peanut Butter?
