PS Fledgling business... get it?!

I started off this afternoon's efforts by myself, but managed to tempt Sophie outside by saying it could be our shared garden bed. She was delighted to choose places for the plants - including lavender, echeveria, pigface and thyme - then cover them with fresh autumn leaves I'd raked from out the back this morning. The soil out the front is very poor, but by mulching with leaves and pea straw, they will break down in time and feed everything. And without a garden budget, we're just going to make do! I'd prefer to have a few plants die on me, than look at cape weed for the rest of my life!

My sister Kate suggested I try making a few, now that I've mastered granny squares. I have another three cushions to cover, so you know what I'll be doing over the next week or so!

Writing-wise, I have a target of 750 words today. I became a little behind this week, due to having a sickie home one day and then sewing another. Luckily I have set such a low daily target and it shouldn't be too hard to achieve... that is, if Jono has a good sleep!
Anyway, must sign off now and write, write, write. Wish me luck!

Thanks for the yarn suggestions. I rang Wondoflex in Melbourne and they said the only alternative to Zara is... Zara! They didn't think I'd find the softness combined with range of colours in another brand. Mum found some Heirloom Merino Magic, which I will try too. If you think of anything else, keep the suggestions coming!
