This morning the clouds came over and it felt and looked really Wintery.
I decided it was a good day to bake so after my morning cuppa I measured out two batches of dough and left them to prove.

The first batch was made into pizza's and a Lebanese Za'atar bread. Yumm.
The second batch was made into Spinach, Feta and Mushroom pull-apart.
Halfway through I realised I had some of that thick yoghurt I made recently which would be superb in the mix. The pull-apart Recipe from I love that site and go there frequently.

 Still adoring his big brown eyes. He is feeding better and sleeping a bit better for me at night now as well.
A bit predictable with no earlier than me getting to bed around midnight. Wake up for first feed around 3am, sleep not long after, wake up at 4am realising the light is left on, turn it off, get comfy in bed then wake up around 6am - 7am for next feed. My circadian rhythm is use to it now so I'm not really that tired if I can sleep in til 8am with hubby at home. He goes back to work on Friday so I'll be flying solo then. (Cringe)

Recieved - some new fabric recently and haven't decided what to make from them yet.
Want - this sweet necklace by Toni. She has free shipping for a short time only.
Happy to be home right now and taking each day as it comes. Trying to get into some sort of routine and meal planning but no chance of that in the foreseeable future. Perhaps once the kids are back at preschool/daycare.

Hope you're all doing fine.


  1. You bake with 4 kids? I am very impressed!

    That all looks very delicious. There's nothing like baking on a cold rainy day.

  2. Looks so tasty! As with all things new, a rhythm will set in and you will feel things return back to normal. You probably already know this :)
    Your little dude is growing so fast!!

Invisible zipper foot - Birch

I thought I might shed some light on the invisible zipper foot. I bought a Birch model from Spotlight and it came in a little plastic bag with four blue shanks and a rolling foot.

First I removed the standard foot from my Janome sewing machine (Sewist 521). I realised I still needed to remove the shank, which is the part that is screwed on, and holds the interchangeable feet. So with one hand holding the screwdriver and one hand holding my daughter, who just had to watch, it popped out disappeared somewhere. NO! I was about to kick myself but luckily I found it in the basket underneath my table. Phew.

The Birch invisible zipper foot comes with one shank already in place so you know how it's suppose to fit. You have to select the correct shank that fits your machine and slide it onto the foot piece.

I just tried each blue part on my machine and made sure it was wide enough to cover the metal leg bit and that I could fit the screw in it's side. Once you find the correct shank slide…

Laser Eye Surgery

< feeling sleepy Blogger doesn't like any of my camera pictures at the moment so I can't show you the pictures taken while I was having my eye's lasered. Here are the pics that Blogger decided it would upload of my eye surgery. I finally decided not to wait any longer and after I saw an advertisement at the local medical centre for the Sebban Eye Centre I decided to see if I was a suitable candidate for laser eye surgery. The check only takes 30mins and boy was I glad to hear that I was! I booked an appointment the very next day but I had to still wait 6weeks.
< during the laser!
A week has passed now and I still have slightly blurry vision since having TransPRK or Advanced Surface Laser. Sometimes when I use the saline drops I have clear vision even from the kitchen to the lounge which is fantastic. I just wish it would hurry up so I can get on with things. I have to have IE at 125% otherwise I find it hard to read and I haven't been on the net for a few days now…

Janome 19110

Meet my new baby, Janome 19110. Ok so maybe it needs a pet name but for now I sit at my sewing table in awe of her. She is a little bit of an upgrade to my current Janome 521 which has been having a bit of a tanty as of late. This one has 50 built-in stitches and 3 types of buttonholes. Did I mention they are automatic buttonholes! Awesome. There are the 7 piece feed dogs which should mean that my fabric won't get sucked under and hopefully will move much more smoothly AND the bobbin shouldn't get caught inside (unlike my old machine).

That being said there's not much else fancy about her as she was one of the bottom range of computerised sewing machines. You could get fancier but I know myself and I'm not running any type of sweatshop in my office I tell you. I am all about keepin' it real my friends (most of the time).

I started off trying a few stitches and trying the buttonhole foot.
It sewed the first two parts and then it stopped. My heart dropped. What jus…
