Thankfully Thursday

Oh what a week so far, flying solo with Mr G away.  Kid #1 has had what seems to be a migraine and been off school,  I have had a full plate at work and if I am honest feeling drained by needy friends, being caught in the cross fire of imploding people (is it just me or should one keep some sort of  self containment to ensure the safety of others? Hmmm?)

Anyway, on with the craft and on with another installment of the Leila Howard Test Kitchen Challenge!

Here is the cushion I made for the 2011 Cushion Swap.  I actually up-cycled a lovely duck egg blue silk cushion cover. I added a mega fabric flower and a felt centre. Pretty cute huh? Off it went to the land of the long white cloud.

Wednesday night menu: Tuna spaghetti casserole

I think you and I might call this Tuna bake LOL - I gave this a go because my kids will eat this,
it used mustard in its white sauce,  overall it was ok. Kids liked it and the mustard was a good idea.

I totally understand your flying solo at the moment, sometimes it just gets so draining doesnt it. You5r cushion cover is so pretty, and the spaghetti casserole sounds like a good one that even my daughter might try!

I hope your Friday goes well. It's not easy doing it solo and having needed people around can be draining so try and get a bit of time to yourself to recharge. Your pillow looks really pretty. The blue with the red work so well together, one of my favourite combinations. I can't wait to see the pillow you get. xo
