As darkness descends

This photo was taken from the back of my house at 7 am on Wednesday morning - the day that now goes down in history as one of the wettest days in November.   The "lights" that can be seen in the photo are the reflection of the flash picking up spots of rain on the camera lens.

As the day wore on it got brighter but the rain continued to fall and this was the view from the back door.

And the front door.    Rain wherever you looked.   Fortunately for us we had no damage unlike many areas.

So what does one do on such a day when you cannot put your nose outside?   First up was to get out the address book and write out my Christmas cards.   I can now boast that they are all addressed, stamped and just waiting to be posted early next week.

Then it was time for a cup of coffee and finish off a book that I was reading.  I have now read a couple of books by this author and enjoy her style of writing.   
After lunch I made a start on some more library bags for a charity that our quilting group supports.   I wanted something quick and not too difficult to sew as I was keeping an eye on the weather reports to hear the latest warnings.    These  just need to have the drawstring cord slotted through and turned right side out.

And this lot need to have their casings sewn and they can join the other pile for finishing off.

Back soon and in the meantime

Happy sewing all

You got lots done! It was a crazy day. We got notices from the kids schools suggesting they stay home, so we did that and spent the day putting up our Christmas decorations.

Good to hear that you weren't badly affected by all that rain. A very productive day by the look of things. That author sounds familiar but I don't know what she has written. Shall look. it up. I am quite proud of myself as I went into my favourite bookshop yesterday and only bought 1 book which was for my daughter, not me. said...

Love it, keeping busy while the rain falls. We are having a few of those days here too :)

Sometimes a rainy day is the best for getting things done! Hope it does let up enough for you to stick your nose out at some point x
